Who says piñatas are only for kid’s birthday parties? Piñatas can add a whole new element of fun and whimsy to any celebration, from weddings to bridal showers to any birthday party.  DIY any shape you want using some cardboard, tape, and fringed tissue paper – no need for that messy paper mache! Just don’t forget the hole for the candy (or confetti!). You can also try dressing up a store bought piñata with some boldly colored spray paint.  

Bring out your inner child with fun shaped piñatas like diamonds, hearts, or stars.  In gold, silver, or bronze they also make a classy backdrops!

Or rather than breaking it open on the wedding day, use a piñata as a guest book. Have guests write their well wishes on pieces of paper they drop into the piñata. Then, on your first year anniversary, open it up and read all of the messages!

For a birthday party, create numbered piñatas to celebrate the age of the birthday boy or girl. You can also use numbered piñatas for an anniversary or New Year’s party!
