Cinco de Llama

 

The big weekend is here, and it’s shaping up to be the biggest party I’ve ever thrown! Tacos, raspas, and llama-ritas will be ready at noon on Sunday at Ranger Creek, and the weather is supposed to be bee-yoo-tiful!

 

As usual, there will be a ton of party favors (including a very limited supply of custom glassware), a festive Spotify playlist, and fun for the whole family!

 

Looking forward to celebrating my fifth year of fun with you at Cinco de Llama!
