Party Theme for Trip to Spain

By Liza

I hope you can help me decide on a theme for my wife’s 50th in May. We are already booked for a vacation trip to Spain in July so this will be a small surprise party with just a few close friends.

Do you have any ideas for a theme related to Spain? I just can’t think of anything except Flamenco dancers and bull fighters.

I hope you can help me out with some fun ideas to surprise her with!
