On With The Fiesta!

You all know oldest Teen Minion will be graduating this year. We elected to do a Fiesta theme for his 
party because, well, the whole Star Wars thing is totally played.
At any rate, like any Mom, I'm tied into themes in my planning. My daughter's wedding will be Littlest Pet Shop. Kidding. It just makes it easier to choose and make stuff.
 
A dip into the Dollar Store yielded these awesome plates and napkins, but to keep it relatively green...
...all the glasses will be owned. And marked. So let's get started.
You will need:
Dried Chili Peppers
Eyelash Ribbon
Twine
Tags
 Measure out 15 inches of ribbon.
And 25 inches of jute or twine.
 Put them together and thread both through the tag. Even them out and find the center of both.
Tie a knot to anchor both.
Tie a bow with the ribbon.
Thread the pepper through the ring of the tag and tie the jute in a knot around it.
Double knot a bow so you have tails to tie around the stem of the glass.
Now, put them in a basket near the beverage station with a collection of Sharpies.
Pennies.
Mere pennies.
And no landfill.

I'm the same way. A theme definitely helps make planning and shopping easier. I love the drink charms!! I made some for a birthday brunch but they were nowhere near as detailed and nice as yours!!

The "photo booth" idea was a nice way to give her a message from everyone and practically free, all you need is a backdrop (fabric) and a chalkboard.
