    7 Things You Need to Throw the Ultimate Fiesta Birthday!

    7 Things You Need to Throw the Ultimate Fiesta Birthday!

    When photographer and momma, Elizabeth, reached out to me to help plan her daughter Sophia’s 2nd birthday party I was thrilled! Her theme was Fiesta, and she wanted bold bright colors for the décor. Take a look at what we came up with and check out this list of 7 things you’ll need to throw the ultimate Fiesta yourself!


    1. Balloons! Elizabeth had a vision for the décor, and one thing she was certain about were these huge 40” gold letter balloons spelling DOS. She had them blown up a day before the party, and simply tucked them back behind the food table to create a gorgeous backdrop. So easy, but they made a huge impact!
    2. A Cake Topper! We went with a bold red glitter cardstock in a cursive ‘dos’ for Sophia’s party. It went perfectly with the cactus cupcake toppers she had and tied in great with the balloons.dos cake topper for fiesta birthday or taco twosday birthday party decorations by sweet chubby cheeks
    3. Nachos! Nobody can say no to a huge plate of Nachos. This darling 'NACHO BAR' sign was hung behind the food table. nacho bar sign for fiesta birthday party
    4. Cookies! Elizabeth had these custom cookies made by a local bakery, and they were the perfect addition to the cake table. She went with a mix of cactus, piñata, number 2, and Sophia’s name. I’d say Sophia loved them!fiesta theme birthday cookies photographed by elizabeth collado photography

    6. A Piñata! – Elizabeth had this taco shaped piñata and about a week before the party she used it for a prop in Sophia’s birthday photo session. It’s almost too pretty to break open!fiesta theme photo shoot or decorations for taco twosday photo session with banner by sweet chubby cheeks
    7. Wall decorations! No party is complete without a few banners and wall hangings. Our rainbow tassel garland was a great choice and compliments the ‘Taco Bout a Party’ fans she used as well!

    I loved collaborating with Elizabeth to make her party dreams come true! I hope you enjoyed this list and it gives you inspiration for your Fiesta as well. Happy Planning!
