#Babuboda- Ya Gotta Have a Theme

HolaHolaHola My Beautifuls! What do weddings,showers, and birthday partys all have in common? Quee?? JU SO FONII!!! Besides the stress, and them being fiestas. That's right, they gotta have a theme. So, you ready for #Babuboda's theme?  Aqui esta- here it is:



"A Celebration in the style of the 20's,30's, and 40's for a couple in their 50's"


October 1930 Hilda's Wedding.


You like? Cutisimo right?? And the possibilities!! 

Of course BB doesn't see herself as the bride above, in her mind she's more like-




unfortunately that's from the 50's so it doesn't go.  But I did find plenty that did.
Babushka went Pinterest Crazy; here are some examples of the different eras.
For you Beautifuls attending:

"But BB" you say. "I'm not going to have time to sew or have a seamstress to make my outfit"  

To which BB says, "Never fear for we have found the perfect gown for you!"

Si, yo se- I know.  The last one isn't black/white.  
But it's Miami, a splash of color- 
ONE SINGLE SPLASH 
is acceptable and I'm excited to see what everyone decides it should be.  

QUE FUN!!


Make way Miami, My Beautifuls are on their way and LOOKING GOOD!!!
