How often can you have margaritas at a kid's birthday party? We had to seize the day.
I started by saying I wanted a "classy" Cinco de Mayo party, but a few trips to Party City and a 6 ft inflatable cactus ring toss beer cooler later, and we had the equivalent of a Tijuana Spring Break.
But see, we started classy! Look at the pretty invites featuring papel picado!
|I had papel picado hanging throughout the house, to carry through with the theme.|
|The spread featured just dips and chips and some taquitos. We used inverted sombreros on a tiered server to hold the chips. That was the extent of my creativity when it came to the food. |
|Of course there were margaritas|
|My very favorite party decoration were the hombre cake pops that my mother made. How awesome are they?|
|And the focal point of our decorations: the aforementioned inflatable cactus ring toss beer cooler. It was quite the conversation piece and a lot of fun. |
|Obligatory pinata bashing|
|For cake time we brought out the family heirloom napkin poncho that has been passed down by Tate and Blake.|
|My mother also created this "streetscape" for picture posing. The guests each got their own sombreros and really, really loud maracas. You're welcome, Parents.|
And just when you're thinking, "But this all looks like a perfectly normal birthday party".....
|Things got a little hairy.|
Any party that ends with mustachioed babies is a good party by my standards. Feliz Cumpleanos Lily Jane!!
