Taco Bout A Party

With Cinco de Mayo coming up this week I thought it would be fun to share one of my favorite birthday parties I was able to give my youngest son. Two years ago Brenner was turning four and he loved the book "Dragons Love Tacos" so we had a taco birthday party!

Party guests enjoyed a taco bar, taco cookies, dragon cookies and candy from the taco pinata! The best way to start planning a party is to pick a theme and colors, for this particular party we went with yellow, red and orange so I tried to find candies and snacks all in those colors.

Party favors are always one of my most favorite elements to a birthday party, I love making something very themed specific. For our Dragons Love Tacos party of course we had to make dragons! I bought white tall socks, dyed them blue using fabric dye then glue on wings, eyes and a fire breathing mouth. Party guest took home these fun sock puppets along with dragon tattoos and a taco sticker book.

We kept the party games pretty simple with a taco pinata and a pin the fire onto the dragon. Party guests also make their own fire breathing dragon mouths using paper cups.
