Last weekend was super busy… We went to two incredible birthday parties on Sunday. I have to say two is a lot… but thankfully my husband Chris came too. Because of his crazy work schedule, I am normally going by myself with the boys. Also it is not really his thing. Crazy, no? I love birthday parties, children parties, actually parties in general (that’s nothing new). I also enjoy to see what other parents come up with…
There are so many themes and ideas out there and awesome things to do. I have a million party ideas for future parties for my family already – we will have an Italian Film Festival for the B-Day of Chris for example. But I also like them to express their own wishes. It was so exciting when Luca chose the Yoshi party theme. It came out so different and cool and I can’t wait what he will choose for his next party. He kind of thinks the Easter carrot party we are having in our backyard is only for him and I hope he doesn’t expect present.
I am really looking forward to the year we are throwing a Pirate Bash with a treasure hunt. I could already think about some “piraty ideas”, since the first birthday we attended was a Pirate Party and we made the pinata. I had all kinds of ideas, but in the end my sister and I decided to do a treasure box. Who doesn’t want to have gold and treasure. After some research, I designed the hardware, made the frame and started fringing.
The treasure box came out beautiful. It was a big success at the party and the kids loved the candy, little skulls and of course the gold.
The kids had a lot of fun in the bounce house and with their swords and pirate accessories. I had a big piece of cake, Chris his beer and everybody was happy.
The next party was in full swing when we arrived. It was a superhero pool party and had many great details. I loved the favors in particular. A super hero plastic cup with a cape, mask and a matching cookie from your favorite hero. I had another piece of cake, Chris another beer and everybody was happy ( I was a little cake sick).
This has been quite a busy week, but the carrots are slowly taking over. We have made all kind of orange and green stuff:
I will post the rest of the pics later…

This is the latest pinata we made for a friend of Giorgio. We are invited to his birthday party tomorrow and I made some shots beforehand for our etsy store. The action shots from the party will follow later:) See updated picture at the end of the post…
This is the perfect pinata for the first birthday of a boy or a girl. This particular pullstring pinata was made for a “baby animal” themed birthday party, but can be customized to match any other theme as well.
This huge pinata is about 27 to 28 inches tall and 17 to 18 inches wide, about 4.5 to 5 inches deep and like all our other piñatas custom-made. Other than most commercial pinatas you can buy in the United States, all of our pinatas are made with thin stripes of tissue paper to give it a frilly and fuzzy look. We can change sizes and colors to match any theme. We also offer a smaller version of the number pinata. Please contact me, if you are interested in a pinata and/or need more information.
A housewarming present is a nice gesture that is much appreciated by the new home owner (or renter, I guess). I don’t mean buying a big and expensive gift. Maybe a bottle of wine, a card or a cake can be an unexpected surprise and makes a person smile.
But for my sister I needed something more (and also bigger, since I am baking and bringing cakes for no reason at all). Again I didn’t want to purchase anything, rather I was thinking about something traditional, but unique. When we moved in our house, I received salt and bread from my parents. It is still a common gesture in Germany to give these symbols to your new neighbor or friend. I really liked the idea of giving something people already did for hundreds of years. So I started to research which symbols I could give my sister and the meaning behind them. I decided to make her a purple house pinata/ gift basket as a symbol for her new home and because her favorite color is purple. I designed gift tags for the various present and the meaning behind it, bought nice glass jars, which I filled, labeled and decorated and put the gift basket all together. It was a real success, especially my children emptying the house and giving the gifts piece by piece.
My sister loved her present.It is traditional, thoughtful and so unique. If you are interested in the pinata/gift basket, the gift tags or the entire package, you can contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or go to our etsy store:
Yesterday we were invited to a birthday dinner of a good friend and brought him a little gift. Just something small, but the perfect present for only him.
He used to work for a drink manufacturing company that produces the Vodka 42Below and when I see this brand, I automatically think about him. Therefore this was the perfect fit (plus I love the way it worked out with the W in the end). We filled it with confetti and candy and presented the pinata bottle inside a gift bag for wine bottles. It was such a cute and unique gift. We had a great evening with really good food. When we left we were full and happy. That’s how a good party should be!

I already wanted to post the pictures of the Yoshi inspired Party in forever…. Finally, here they are. The party was such as success and we had so much fun. But most of all, Luca loved his party.
…and before I forget, this was the invitation. A Yoshi egg inside a box to smash with a small Yoshi head with the details of the party:
For the 3rd birthday party of Kian, one of the best friends of Luca, I created a custom red car piñata inspired by the Lightning McQueen car.
