If you have been following us for a while now you will know we love a good fiesta! This one was a more contemporary take on the theme. We went for bright bold colors and lots of cactus! We have developed a bit of am obsession with cactus (some of you may have already noticed that!).
The birthday boy wanted a churro cake. A plain cake that tastes a bit like the Mexican donuts and is coated in cinnamon and sugar. It worked really well with our custom cake toppers. The children who liked more traditional cake got to have cupcakes.
We used our low to the ground set up with floor cushions. It is a fun set up for both little kids and older ones. It also works well in small spaces.
We used cactus in every way possible. We made them to look like pinatas, we had photograph cut out of them, cactus cupcakes that were hard to distingue form the real thing, we had blow up ones, wooden ones and we had the real thing! The cactus cupcakes (on the cake stand above and below right between two real ones) were made by the talented Sylvie from Sisslos Cakes and were fabulous. You can find her on https://www.facebook.com/Sisslos/?fref=ts or on Instagram as sissloscakes.
The food was easy! We served Nacho's along with some Mexican rice and corn. There was also a selection of empanadas which are always a big hit.
Our custom cut out signage worked perfectly for this theme and we used it for everything form the invite to the nachos banner and thank you tags. The children got to take home a packet of hot tamales (spicy cinnamon sweets) and a mini cactus from the table set up.
