Homemade Taco Piñata

What better way to reveal the gender of our baby than with a homemade taco piñata!!!!! Originally I was going to buy cupcakes and have the filling reveal the gender, but I thought that might be too involved and not quite our style.

I came across this DIY Taco Pinata and knew that was it!!! The whole theme of a fiesta derived from this homemade piñata and somehow turned into the perfect party for us. I’m Mexican and Baby Daddy loves Mexican food/me, so it was a no brainer.

A few days before the gender reveal fiesta my friend Ashley and I went to a gender determination appointment at HiMom 4D (went with $50 package). The plan was for Ashley to know the sex and fill the piñata with the correct color of confetti. She held the secret and did a great job filling it with confetti, streamers, beaded necklaces, a mini cowboy hat, and candy.

It was such an amazing feeling to share the gender of Blueberry with our family and friends!
