Party Recap

For our twins third birthday we settled on a Fiesta (3-Esta) Theme. I
love the look of papel picado and decided to design and invitation
inspired by the Mexican folk art. Since we have girl/boy twins I wanted to keep the décor rustic while using bright vibrant colors and hints of gold throughout.

DIY PROJECTS:
There were a lot of DIY projects including the "Cantina" which we built from recycled shipping pallets. I also made large, multi-colored crepe paper flowers which were used on the dessert table and strung from the trees in our yard. Other projects included a homemade piñata, gold leaf terra cotta pots and a vertical succulent garden in the shape of a "3".

FOOD/DESSERT:
My mom and I love to bake so most of the desserts were homemade right
in our kitchen. We wanted to keep the desserts authentic so we stuck with traditional Mexican sweets which included pan dulce, arroz con leche and churros. We also made several desserts with a spicy kick including ancho chili truffles and mango chili paletas.

For lunch we set up a simple "build your own taco" station.
