Share Your Celebration | A Cinco de Mayo Fiesta

Today I am excited to share with you a sweet first birthday celebration that is sure to have you smiling.  This party comes by way of Kera of Deep Down. You may recognize her and her sweet baby girl Elena as Kera was one of the Instagram mamas I recently featured. I was delighted when she shared photos and a recipe from Elena’s first birthday party!


Since Elena was born on Cinco de Mayo her parents decided to throw her a Cinco de Mayo Fiesta. This charming celebration could easily be modified for your summer baby’s birthday. The details are darling yet simple enough for those of us who aren’t all that crafty but still want to include festive details. Here are a few words from Kera regarding the party:

Hello Disney Baby Readers!

My name is Kera, and I blog about life abroad with my three littles, at Deep Down. My baby girl’s birthday falls on Cinco de Mayo, which we are so excited about!! She just turned one, and what a day to have a fiesta!! So we did just that. We invited our closest friends here in Abu Dhabi, UAE, where we’ve been living for four years, and had a taco bar, with Brazilian lemonade and Horchata, two delicious Latin American drinks.
