My little guy is 3!!! Can’t believe it.
The taco theme was a really fun one to do:
Planning this party taught me the value of tissue paper. This stuff is like gold! It’s also super inexpensive gold at that. You do have to love detail to work with it. Pinatas proved to be pretty forgiving projects, the taco pinata was especially easy if not time consuming to make. There are so many online diy tutorials that really just guide you through it. I used this one which also inspired much else in the party.
I found this party to be an all around crowd pleaser for adults & kids alike. I mean c’mon, it’s tacos. Where can you go wrong?
My favorites (other than eating tacos) was the story reading by my step-dad who is an epic book reader. I often walk into a room when he’s reading to H & he always deviates from the plot & makes stuff up which is pretty entertaining. For this party he read, Dragons Love Tacos which is such an awesome book! I love this illustrator & author, H also has their book, Robo-Sauce.
Second fave, watching toddlers hit pinatas. They just do a light whappity-whap, they don’t quit get the bashing in part just yet which is pretty darn adorable. H has some older cousins luckily who do get the bashing in part & thus the candy flowed freely. H even asked me a couple times to hit it for him.
Again, ack! How can this kid be three? We’ve negotiated a rough patch over the Winter but now our souls, like the Spring time weather seems to be in a warm & sunny place. Motherhood has taught me so many lessons, right now it’s all about a ton of prayer & learning how to be really easy on myself.
Wishing the best for all of you out there as the Spring time buds unfold! See additional party credits below.
Peace & namaste~
