Baker's Birthday Fiesta

A few weeks ago we celebrated Baker's fourth birthday with a Fiesta (ahem, Diego) party. Diego was on the bounce house, so he did show up and Baker was stoked.

I made a bunch of paper flowers (there's a good tutorial here) and hung paper Mexican flags I found at the Ventura Flea.  The big project was the mini pinatas that we gave as favors. Those took a bit of time, but they were pretty fun to make. Thank you Martha Stewart for making fringe scissors.  Each family got one with surprises inside for the kids. Almost everything in the pinata and favors came from Dollar Tree. Fun stuff that kids love on the cheap.

Baker asked for a cake and I said, um okay! My favorite chocolate cake comes from The Bride & Groom First and Forever Cookbook - it's amazing. Seriously.

A good old backyard party with friends! And, Evie turns One in two weeks - where has the time gone?
