It was a fun party combined with learning and diversity. Most of the kids are from different backgrounds, Mexican, Portuguese, Spanish, Moroccan, Irish, and German to name a few! We looked at it as a way to teach and gather a group to make learning fun! Thank you to Leah and her kiddos for sharing your culture with us! We can’t wait for Coco and for our kids to learn more about the Mexican culture.

Let’s start with probably my favorite invite ever by Prim and Pixie! From the colors, to the lining and all of that detail, they just nailed it! Not surprised, they do every time! I just sprinkled some custom confetti from The Confetti Bar and it’s all sorts of cute!
How cute are these little ladies?! Like I said, everyone loved having their faces painted by Couture Paintings! Owner Sara Sanchez has studied Day of the Dead facial paintings and had something fun and different for each kiddo. These little ladies are wearing dresses from Gunn & Swain and the prettiest headbands from The Daydream Republic! I mean, how cute can you get?!
How cute is little Emerald?! Youngest daughter of the one and only Jesi Haack!
Here’s pretty Annie, daughter of our favorite Jolie, owner of Wild Child Party
And sweet Reagan, son of Emily Sims, half the duo of Magic Kingdom Mamas! This guy got along just fine with my Court, two wild boys!!
And now, for the set up… I have to say, I was really excited to do this party, and seeing it come to life made it that much more satisfying! I love, love, love this set up!! The colors are so fun and vibrant, it’s just so FUN!!!
If you haven’t been able to tell, we love a good balloon installation from Wild Child, I mean, who doesn’t?! It just makes such a statement! I don’t know when this trend is going to end, but I’m fine with it hanging around longer! Rooted & Wild also killed it with the amazing florals!! That girl just gets it right every time! Also… That sugar skull pinata?! It’s basically the cutest thing ever.
For the place settings I did terra cotta tiles and Prim and Pixie added each child’s name. Wild Child has these adorable sugar skull plates by Meri Meri that were obviously perfect! I sprinkled the custom confetti from The Confetti Bar again and some pretty petals and marigolds as well.
Look at these stirrers from Prim & Pixie! I’m obsessed….
I love the combination for florals Rooted & Wild did, it’s just the best!
I don’t do kid’s parties without desserts… How else would we bribe them?! Haha… But seriously… Sweet & Saucy Shop does it again! They took my inspiration and what they did was magic, truly magic! Prim & Pixie completed it all with the adorable sign – it’s all just so good!!! Makes me giddy looking at it!
I think it’s safe to say these kiddos had a blast! And we learned and celebrated another culture while we were at it! These moments are so special with our kids, watching them have fun and grow at the same time. Even though this may seem silly and little, I know in the long run talking to them and exposing to them to these things will have an impact on them. I know, because it did with me!
