Fiesta // Cinco de Mayo

I am so excited to finally share with you all the details from our Fiesta themed party we threw my youngest back in November. This guy loves tacos more than anyone I know, so naturally he wanted a taco party. I may be a little biased, but isn't he just the cutest little thing that you ever did see in a sombrero?

I knew right away that I wanted a playful color pallet, so I took colors straight from a typical pinata. To add more fun to the invitations, I sewed on crepe paper to the bottom to give it more of a pinata feel. The invitations set the stage for the rest of the party. 

I made these decorations out of a Pringles can and some streamer!

For the cactus punch, we just mixed green koolaid and sprite, but you can always add some lime sherbet for more fun!

I set up a simple little photo prop area. It was fun to snap pictures of the kids to send home with them. 

I always try to include an activity and craft for each children's party. For this one, the kids made maracas, played Pin the Tail on the Donkey and Poke the Cactus (sadly, I didn't get any photos of this, but it entailed balloons filled blown up and stuffed with a piece of candy. The balloons were all taped to a board to create a shape of a cactus. Blindfolded, the kids got to poke a balloon with a toothpick to find what prize they won). 

           Supplies needed for this: Easter eggs, plastic spoons, rice or beans (dry), and tape. 

Every Fiesta needs at least one pinata! Our guests each got take home their own filled with goodies. 

We made our own little pinatas, but you can easily find some on Etsy. Although a little time consuming to make this many, it ended up being a fun family activity.

I had so much fun with this party - I hope you left feeling inspired to throw your own fiesta!
