Best Kids Parties: Cinco de Mayo

Best Kids Parties: Cinco de Mayo

Violet's second birthday party fell on Cinco de Mayo weekend last year, so we went with a festive fiesta! 

We had sombreros, paper flower headbands, and mustaches for the kids (and adults) to wear. I decorated with tissue garland fringe, confetti, and festive flags and then had the Mister grill some yummy fajitas for all. 

Of course, we had Pin the Tail on the Donkey and a pinata. I couldn't resist getting a Cookie Monster pinata because I knew my daughter would love it (Sesame Street is her favorite), so we just dressed him up for the occasion with a mustache and paper flower headband.

I think for Violet it was a perfect day. I'm so happy that she loved her birthday party, and even though she won't remember it, I think she'll know how much fun she had when she looks back at these pictures. Thank you to our family for all of your love and for helping us to celebrate the birth of our little girl!
