Birthday parties and parties in general are always a fun topic for us. Themes like Quinn’s Ice Cream Social party, Gordon’s Football Birthday, and Clare’s Unicorn Birthday get the wheels turning for coming up with new and creative ideas. On Scarlet’s third birthday Jaime hosted her adorable Third Birthday Fiesta, so we were so excited when we spotted this sweet, early Feliz Cinco de Mayo birthday on bows and arrows.
Seriously, going through these photos will make you want to call up a mariachi band and have an afternoon of fun. There were masks, an incredible cake, and the most beautiful flower crowns. If you’re thinking about throwing a fiesta of your own, you might want to add in musical DIY cascarones, a Watermelon Keg, and Agua Fresca to the mix.

Fiesta de Dotty
we love to throw a party with a bit of culture and create an experience for everyone attending. this year, we decided to give a nod to our three year old daughter’s mexican heritage (she was named after her 2 mexican great grandmothers- beatrice dorothy) by throwing a fiesta full of festive details. we decorated our backyard with papel picado garland flags and tissue paper flowers. we had a seven piece mariachi serenade the birthday girl and had a cake that looked like a pinata and was filled with candy. we served tecate, tamales, and pb+j tacos! everyone had a blast and celebrating the birthday girl and an early cinco de mayo!
