Lincoln's NACHOS AND NACHO 1st Birthday Party

Oh, my Lincoln! What a fantastic excuse to celebrate! We decided it was time to have a "Nachos & Nacho" party (as in the food & the movie).

We had fiesta decorations (I just made a simple fringe bunting to put around the house) & a nacho bar!

Plus some "Hecho in Mexico" Jarritos & LimeAid drinks- complete with Luchador straws I made.

We made good use of the blanket we bought when we were in Mexico & I even found cacti and I painted some pots for them. Plus last week I took pictures  of Linc dressed as a Luchador to put all over the party.

For the kiddos I bought a template from this Etsy shop of a "Color Your Own Luchador" mask. The kids had a lot of fun coloring them & when Rob was done he kept running around saying, "Look I'm a minion!"

I even made Lincoln a Luchador shirt just for the occation. Man, I love that kid!
And most importantly we were surrounded by fantastic wonderful friends who we consider family.

 Thanks to everyone for being there to celebrate this special messy, but happy fellows first year!

I am such a nacho fan that even those I have never seen the movie I might have to have a party like this just for the nachos.

Awesome party!
