Our Butterfly Themed Fiesta Party

A few weeks back we celebrated a special event for my daughter. She loves burritos and butterflies so we decided to have a butterfly themed fiesta that included pinatas, dancing and a taco truck. As you may know, I don’t blog or post images of my kids, but wanted to share some of the decorations. The custom multi-colored butterfly table runner was the first item selected and set the lively tone for the event. The bright pink peonies, vibrant Mexican pottery and handmade butterfly garland hanging from the chandelier were my favorite decorations.

The pink butterfly party invite was purchased at Minted.

Loved these individual pinata for the kids! Each child pulls the ribbon and goodies drop out. They would be a fun DIY project, but I purchased them on Etsy.

Alphabet blocks and a banner spell out birthday wishes to memorialize the special day. Did you notice the little elephant in the top block?
The banner was handmade from a template  found on Martha Stewart {here}. Each letter was printed out and cut in circles. The letters were then glued on red paper circles {coordinating with the party theme} and strung on a white ribbons.

To create these custom goodie bags, photocopies of the invitation were made and adhered to the front of solid red paper bags. Each gift bag was personalized with guests’ names using white letter stickers. So simple, so cute!
