Hello, Hostess with the Mostess fans. It’s Jen, of Jen CYK Photography. As always, I’m super happy to share some incredible creativity with you. Your skills, ladies (and gentlemen), are amazing and super inspiring! This first birthday fiesta is no exception! I absolutely adore this Fiesta First Birthday Party that I recently captured. Because you know what, we all need to stop, and have a little fiesta today!

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Bright & colorful photo booth, bean guessing game & real live donkey riding!
– Handmade stuffed donkey favors for the kids & mini maracas for the adults
– An absolutely adorable traditional outfit for the birthday boy + handpainted ‘Ethan’ letters
– Rainbow streamers backdrop + mini piñata garland & table decor

PARTY DETAILS as told by Jen

This mama couldn’t wait to celebrate her son’s first birthday. She admittedly may have went a little overboard on capturing every detail, but she nailed every piece of this party. Guests had fun, laughed, played, and smiled for lots of pictures. It’s always inspiring to see what you creative party planners are able to come up with. Thank you for the inspiration!

The 1st birthday boy in spanish is not correct write Feliz Cumpleaños with the s because the baby doesnt have more than one. The correct form is Feliz Cumpleaño # 1 or Feliz Cumpleaño Ethan. This is only a observation for future activities ideas for others mom’s. By the way I love the colors in this fiesta for kids. Beautiful ideas for a kids party. ;-D
