Hey Guys! It’s Feature Friday and nothing delights me more than to share with you some photos of our nugget’s special day. We decided to keep it a bit low key this year and really set a small budget for the party, because I may just have this tendency to over do it ;)
Amelia is obsessed with Dora, so it was a total no brainer that we would throw a Dora party for her 2nd birthday celebration. But, since adults like a good party too, we decided to have it be a Dora Fiesta, with a chicken taco bar and Cinco De Mayo margaritas served in mason jars and fun straws. Yay for adult fun!
I didn’t want to shell out a lot of money for a personalized cake, so I scoured through pintrest and found some pretty great ideas. I decided to purchase a regular store bought round white cake. I purchased candy dots from the dollar store and placed them around the cake to match the colors of the party. I created a mini cake banner from left over Dora Invites and you can see more on how I did that on my WATF Wednesday Post. I then hung the cake banner with twine and used chop sticks and inserted at a slight angle into the cake.
I also made party favor bags out of paper lunch bags. I purchased small sized paper doilies and folded them in half. I placed two holes with my hole puncher, strung twine, added a circle Dora invite tag and there you have an easy party favor bag! Our little guests were treated to all things Dora, from activity books to bubbles.
Amelia had a blast with her Dora Bowling set and the adults enjoyed their margaritas and taco fare! I think it was a Fiesta hit! Do you do themes for your kids parties? Do you have big parties one year and a smaller one the next?
