Comments Off on Evelyn’s Three-esta: Mexican Themed Kids Birthday Party

Since coming home from Mexico the kids have been talking about our trip and asking to go back, frequently. Because of that, and Evelyn’s birthday being in the middle of summer it only seemed fitting to have a Mexican themed kids birthday party. Or in this case; a three-esta!

This party was put together super last minute. By last minute I mean, like three days before the party happened.

I’m super happy with how it turned out, and with the help of a friend for taking on a last minute cookie order (@cookies.by.andria) and my mama for making the cake, it was a quick trip to the dollar store and party city for everything else.

Three-esta party highlights:

• Cactus cookies by Cookies by Andria
• Fiesta cake
DIY Balloon Garland backdrop
• Kids face painting by Rainbow Faces
• Mason jar Cactus lids by Mason Jar Merchant

I set up the dessert table and Lisa from Rainbow Faces inside and then had some kiddie pools and the sprinkler set up in the backyard.

We served up soft and hard (the ones I didn’t burn) tacos for lunch. It was one of the easiest to put together and had the help of family and friends to get everything finished up to enjoy together.

One of my favorite ways to dress up a party and something my kids love is the balloon garland, they always get so excited when they see me setting one up. I’ve done a few for different parties that you can see here for Halloween inspired and here with Eucalyptus.

Andria just started her @cookies.by.andria baking account and she did an amazing job creating Three-esta cookies. Just look at them, so impressed. I also mentioned to her that she might need to give me a little training session so I can try myself sometime.

My mama is a retired cake decorator and did an amazing job putting this cake together from a few inspiration photos. I’m always inspired by what she can create with cake and icing.

The mason jar glasses I gave away to the mama’s that came to the party (sorry friend if you are reading this and didn’t get one, I missed one of you!) ha! I was originally going to do it for the kids but thought that would be A LOT of of glasses to buy and well, the mom’s would love it more.

So thankful that we last minute decided to have Rainbow Faces at the party and she was actually available! The kids LOVED getting their faces painted, we let them pick out the design they wanted from her list.

Success! A simple and fun third birthday party for sweet (not so little anymore) Evelyn. She is such a joy in our family. Always smiling, constantly sweeter than ever before and most recently being a little sneak. ha!

Happy Birthday Evelyn!




  • New hair, who dis?
  • We surprised Sophie at her birthday party and had a friend bring their pony over to give the kids rides. After the party she said “Mom can I have that exact same birthday party next year?”
  • Top Knots & Pizza Nights = Best Night Ever.⁠⠀
Last week, @panago_pizza delivered the new @BeyondMeat vegan pizzas as well as the @Gardein Breaded Chick’n tenders!⁠⠀
Even though I’m not vegan myself, I’d heard so many great things about the new plant-based products from @panago_pizza I was so excited to give them a try! Out of the two new additions, the plant-based Beyond Spicy Calabrese was my favourite, and trust them when they say spicy.⁠⠀

  • Quick day trip to the island, I took a tip from all of you and wore my lulus in anticipation of a full belly.
  • Cheers to Thanksgiving friends 💫 💕 I’ve been so grateful for the opportunity I’ve had to contribute to 8+ of @ilikeherstylevancouver’s print magazine. They’ve created such a great space for women to connect, inspire and encourage. My last contribution shares how I wear summer dresses & rompers in the fall, and I must say is one of my cutest articles yet. Also big thanks to @juliechristinephotography for capturing such cutie shots I can never pick just one.

You can find the print mag at all their rack locations (see details on website) or online.
  • What a joy it was to go out yesterday and show my support to two ladies who are such incredible women, role models, mamas, creators ... seriously all the things.

Can’t wait to flip through the pages of #fraichefoodfullhearts cookbook and be inspired to make some new things. Such a pleasure to celebrate with you both @jillian.harris & @fraichenutrition — you both radiate love and joy.
