We have a lot of fun planning kids parties, but it’s extra special when we do it for our own. This year I’ve had my share of birthday planning for my own brood, with Edie turning 5, Isla two and my youngest Henry turning one all a couple months apart!! Whew, mama’s tired but also proud of what was pulled off to make it fun and special for my littles. Today I’ll be sharing the photos of Henry’s first fiesta with you also featured on Inspired by This today here!
I decided to go with my favorite theme to plan.. A Fiesta!! I have never done this theme for my kids and I absolutely love it. I love the colors and all the fun details that come along with it. When I told my husband, he seemed kind of bored with it and told me “everyone does fiesta”. So we took it one step further and made it a Lucha Libre theme. At the time Henry was becoming a pretty chunky big boy, so we thought it was a perfect theme for him!
When I consulted with Meghann Miniello about the invite, I really started to get excited. I knew the colors I wanted and the vibe I was going for but her vision carried it though to something really special integrating a papel picado as a part of it as well. This is one of my favorites!!
One of my favorite details for a fiesta are the papel picado. We hung it outside and we used it for flags at the place setting, and we even integrated it into the invite. I love carrying the reoccurring theme throughout the party. I also loved including the black and white combo to make the fiesta a little more masculine.
The tables were colorful and fun. Going with black and white and neutrals and then adding the pops of color with the favors and other special details.
These stir sticks were my fave!! Courtney from Poppyjack Shop did an amazing job on all of the signage, stir sticks and cake toppers.
When I found these mini Mexican Market bags I thought they would be perfect for the favor bags. Of course accompanied by a Lucha figurine and mask!!
I always get pinatas for my kids parties as a part of my heritage, it’s not a party unless we have a pinata!! When I saw this one from whack pinatas, I about died!! Isn’t it the coolest!! They are amazing over there.
Making it all about Henry was so fun. Going through all of his pictures over the year makes me miss my newborn baby!!
Getting ready to celebrate him, here he is with his Lito (abuelito).
The desserts are always one of my favorites to think of an get unique with. Beverlys Bakery never disappoints with carrying out my vision and how yummy they are!! If you haven’t tried their cakes you are missing out!!
This smash cake was so good!!
This has to be my favorite picture because he was in full character here!!
So in love with this happy boy!!
Please excuse the 5 year old diva in this pic, she was over taking pictures this day….haha!
We are ready to see this boy tear into his cake…and boy did he!!
And….that’s a wrap, let’s just say I had to give him a bath after this!!
I really had a lot of fun with this one, hope you enjoy the details as much as I did!! And thank you to all of the amazing vendors who helped me carry out this vision!!
