My favorite - papel picado! I saved this and we will put it to good use for years of birthdays to come.
And my favorite - sugar skulls! I bought a mold of Etsy, and after a few trial runs, perfected the technique. It was really fun to learn and we will make these in future years as well!
All the food - quesadillas, homemade salsa, chorizo, and this AWESOME Elmo platter I found on Pinterest!
It was a great party and big thanks to everyone who joined us in celebrating. And big thanks to you for taking a time journey with me and pretending this is not three months late!
Happy 2012 everyone!
