A party for twins is always double the fun, and this party serves up sweet fun with twin boys, lots of friends, a creative mom, a dad with the same birthday, and loads of milk and cookies!  Mom Mae, of Mae Armstrong Designs, designed the party stationery, styled the party, and baked the treats!  Mae even made the wreath at the front dooe and a giant cookie pinata!  With all of this excitement rolled into one party, this was a recipe for fabulous celebration!

I love the giant cookie cake made from a Williams-Sonoma cake pan!

The dessert table was loaded with different cookies to enjoy~ along with bags and boxes for the guests to use to take some home with them!

Guests could decorate their own cookies with colorful toppings~ and enjoy cookies and cream cupcakes!

A table setting made easy and stylish with Kraft Paper and stamped placemats~

The pinata was made with pull strings- perfect for the toddler set!  I love the tags on each string!

Here are the cute little Birthday Boys!

What a fantastic party!  Thank you for sharing your ideas with us, Mae!

Celebrating your birthday with a Mexican Fiesta is a sure way to have a great time!  My daughter and several of her friends had a ball with all of the bright colors and (hopefully) vivid memories of a beautiful party day full of fun!  Planning all of the party ideas and details was loads of fun- although we don’t claim to have everything authentically perfect- this is our take on a party that combines Mexican birthday party ideas with a young girl’s likes and wishes!  For instance, we know hedgehogs don’t hail from Mexico- but when she fell in love with a festive-looking hedgehog at a local shop, we decided the hedgehog would make a perfectly fun party favor!  So read on and enjoy- and hopefully you will find an idea or two that you can use for a Mexican-themed party or even a Cinco de Mayo celebration, too- and inspiration to incorporate ideas that make your party perfectly-suited for the birthday child!
