A Birthday Fiesta! | Emma turns 4

Tuesday, May 15, 2018

Emma's birthday weekend fell on Cinco de Mayo this year, so naturally we had to have a fiesta themed birthday party for her.  It's probably the last year I can talk her into the kind of party we want to have, but maybe not.  She's pretty easy going.

I tried to keep it simple this year.  Being 19 weeks pregnant with twins and easily exhausted, I knew the less I had to do, the better.  It turned out great!  We had a taco bar, pina colada fruit salad, and ended with cactus cupcakes and choco-tacos.  The fruit salad was incredible and I would definitely make it again for any other occasion or Summer party.

For drinks, I made an easy "cactus juice" for the kids and of course, margaritas and cerveza for the adults.  Minus me, whose drink was non-alcoholic. 

We put up our bounce house and threw in a slip-n-slide and inflatable pool for several hours of entertainment.  The kids had so much fun and I didn't hear any complaints!  I had planned on DIY maracas for the kids and had a giant taco pinata, both of which we didn't get to because they were having so much fun playing outside.
