My lil Brother’s Substantial Faculty Graduation Get together and Good Mexican Meals

Good day! This weekend was my tiny brother’s high school graduation celebration!! So I want to share some of the highlights since my mom manufactured tremendous uncomplicated and lovable centerpieces and experienced a desk decorated with his university pictures. All the things came out fantastic and it was enjoyment!

The party was at La Barca Grill and Cantina – a Mexican restaurant in Downey, CA. I hadn’t been there prior to. My mother and father have been heading to have the get together at their property but experienced to change it up due to the fact they’re functioning on the yard. Luckily this put was relatively near to residence and has a room you can lease for parties. Boom.

For reference (and due to the fact I’m constantly curious exactly where things are in relation to a place I may well know) here’s a map of in which Downey is situated with a handful of other factors of curiosity:

It is time to start off schooling for Slide 50 percent Marathons and Marathons now!! This consists of the Lace Up Race Collection and Prolonged Seashore Marathon / Fifty percent. *

We bought there early and embellished a bit. I gave my mother some strategies for the centerpieces but she set them jointly. I appreciated the notion of applying his graduation image because we’re celebrating him and it was a great photograph!

To make the centerpieces you need to have: glass vase cylinder, colourful shredded paper, sticks, development paper, pictures [plus scissors and glue to cut and paste the photos].

On the adhere: Make the flags with the class yr/identify. Put the photo on design paper. Make the congrats information.

We place them collectively at the restaurant but you can do it right before and transportation them carefully.

The gift table was embellished with a big poster board that experienced his college picture from every year from kindergarten via 8th quality. We also set up his diploma (it will make for a great decoration much too), shots from his functions, balloons, vibrant napkins and a box for playing cards. The card box was labeled so people knew what it was for.

My father got a DJ but it didn’t flip into that kinda party. I did like his stickers although! Try to eat Slumber skratch Repeat… where’s the Run?!


Aaaaand mainly because it was a Saturday… and we’re Mexican… and margaritas exist…

There were being a good deal of margaritas to be experienced!



Due to the fact it was a major team party there was a preset menu with 4 decisions as well as a kid’s menu. All the alternatives had been served with tortillas. Plus chips and salsa of class!

The Menu:

Carne Asada with inexperienced onion, guacamole served with beans & rice

Hen Enchiladas built with green chili served with beans & rice

Pollo a La Plancha grilled rooster with garlic & onions served with beans & rice

Camarones al Mojo de Ajo shrimp sautéed with garlic served with beans & rice

My SIL got the enchiladas

Then we lower the Costco cake and fell into a pleased foods coma.

In general: Almost everything was magnificent. I’d try to eat there yet again. I’d eat Costco cake once more (even even though my mother did not get the taste I’d decide on). I’d steal some of my brother’s guac once again whilst waiting around for my food.

And I’d appreciate a margarita right now. Cheers!
