My little dude just turned 3 and we had a taco themed party!
He’s obsessed with food. Anytime we go to a party I ask him later what his favorite part was and he always says “the food.” Even if it’s lame greasy pizza. Even if there was a bounce house and pony rides and face painting and balloon animals. Food always wins.
He also loves the book Dragons Love Tacos. We morphed it a bit and left out the dragons, but otherwise pulled a lot of ideas from the book. We made the invitations look like mini books. Here are a couple pages from his invitation:
We had plenty of real tacos (beef and chicken – like the invite), with all the toppings in buckets (buckets of tacos!). There was also a taco cake and taco cookies (pantloads of tacos). I even made a boat for the table!
(I will be doing a separate post on the Taco Cookies. These were so fun to make!)
I found some cool taco floaties for the pool which really tied together the taco pool party.
I made favor bags to match the Taco Cave bags from the book, which had a few goodies and also held the candy from the taco pinata.
Levi had a blast. He’s still talking about his taco birthday party days later!
We all had taco shirts for the party – though it was so hot we spent the whole time in the pool so no one saw them!
Levi’s orange shirt was custom made by my friend at SpillTheBeansEtc. Carter’s green shirt is from OliviaandAugust. The little pink shirt on Audrey was customized into a onesie by BayouCityThreads (best customer service everrrr). My shirt is from LiftHerUpCo and Travis’ is from Amazon.
