I blame Cinco De Mayo – but I smell piñata in the air. I can’t stop pinning them, and I MUST have one for the upcoming bridal shower! Who doesn’t want to whack the sh*t out of something, and get goodies in return? Stupid question. I know.
A piñata (Spanish pronunciation: [piˈɲata]) is a container often made of papier-mâché, pottery, or cloth; it is decorated, and filled with small toys or candy, or both, and then broken as part of a ceremony or celebration. So in my
piñata perusing I have come across some pretty MAJ stuff, that I will do the honor of sharing with you.
Some kind of wonderful piñata factory? IDK but love this from Milkandhny.blogspot.com
I mean COME ON at StudioDIY. StudioDIY give a supply list and instructions to create this gilded creature. Not from scratch – you have to buy a plain donkey piñata at the party store. But let’s be real people.
She also has some other lovely P’s like these with instructions from scratch!
Piñatas are most commonly associated with Mexico, but their origins are considered to be in China. I had no idea! The concept of breaking open a container filled with candies came to Europe in the 14th century. That is where the name, from the Italian pignatta, was first used.
And one more I couldn’t resist posting.
The Spanish brought the European tradition to Mexico, although there were similar traditions in Mesoamerica. Supposedly, the Aztecs had a similar tradition to honor the birthday of the god Huitzilopochtli.
Oh Happy Day has instructions for making these absolutely adorbs ice cream cones.
One of the more bizarre items I found was this bridal shower game called “The Panty Pinata“. For your enjoyment please watch the video below.
Piñatas aren’t just for Papier-mâché, I was tickled rainbow by these cute ideas.
I order you all to make these cookies for Cinco De Mayo. I mean, it’s not even an option.
Next weekend Taylor and I are getting together to start crafting for the bridal shower. I think we are going to attempt a piñata then. We were thinking maybe a diamond ring one full of ring pops? But who needs the cals? Panties are fat-free. Hmmm we are still tbd. Stay tuned.
