Cinco de Mayo Birthday Fiesta!
I have always wanted to try making giant paper flower and this was the perfect reason to finally to do them. I started with a practise attempt using scrap printer paper and when that worked out well, I bought a pack of coloured paper from Walmart to make the final ones.
Another fun thing I have always wanted to try is making Cascarones. If you are not familiar with these, Cascarones are confetti filled eggshell that you essentially smash open on each others heads. We started collecting empty eggshells in April, then dyed them, stuff them with confetti and it was a big hit with the kids. Note: Brown eggs do not dye and they do not break like white eggs do! It was like those birthday candles that don't blow out...brown eggs had to get smashed HARD to break...my husband and I volunteered to be the target for those ones.
We also made stars out of coloured paper bags (I saw this tutorial on Facebook). I never knew you could do this and it was so incredibly simple! Of course we had traditional banners through out the house, floral head bands for all the girls and a classic piñata!
