Cinco de Mayo Baby Shower

Thursday, May 5th, 2011

Each event that I design focuses on creating an experience for the guests. I love telling a story about the person being celebrated through the beauty and fun of the event! This baby shower was no different! The mama-to-be loved margaritas and guess what? Her due date was May 5th – Cinco De Mayo. So a fiesta baby shower it is!

The “theme” was easy. Now the inspiration for the decor. I sourced some adorable burro pinata invitations that had the papel picados (mexican paper banners) and it became the backbone for the party. We hung rows of papel picados, used baby burro pinatas as table decor and stuffed a full-sized burro pinata with baby “necessities” and had mom smash it open. (Un-blindfolded of course — no need for any injuries).

We served a Mexican brunch with individual chicken enchiladas and a festive banana cake decorated with papel picados. One of the favorite gifts was the diaper cake. I still have not seen a cuter version! Guests departed with a baby succulent plant in a terra cotta pot. Gracias!


Thank you gifts for fiesta baby shower
