Way Back Whenesday: La Piñata

When: December 20th, 2009
Where: San Salvador
What: Sebastian and Collette's Birthday Bash, Round 2

My lovely MIL planned an AMAZING first birthday party for the twins while we were in El Salvador. I feel like the pictures won't do it justice. But here goes:

Sebastian's cake (Collette's was already cut)

Collette's First Lollipop

Sebastian trying to remember the number for CPS

Sebastian trying to whack the piñata

Waiting for the magic show to start

This is mainly to show how giant the piñatas were

The stage and seating.
In the background, you can see the dessert table, the juice table and the pizza station. You can't see the popcorn machine, the ice cream cart, or the cotton candy machine. Also, the adults had a paella station, a ceviche station and a double kegerator. I'm not even joking.

Colie and me under the patio roof. In this shot, you can see the bounce house in the back.

The party favors were beach towels with a lady bug, bee and butterfly embroidered on them. So, basically, I can never throw them a party because it will never be as good as this one! :)
