Spa Day Party – Pretty Pinata

When discussing what my daughter had in mind for her birthday party, this year, I was surprised to learn that she really wanted a piñata. We have them sporadically for birthday parties, but she hadn’t had one for a couple of years and decided there should be one at this party.
Of course, with a spa day themed party, you can’t have just any piñata. I showed BSB a couple of inspiration photos on line (pinterest) and asked if he could construct the jewel shape for me out of cardboard. He was excited about the challenge and constructed a near perfect jewel-shaped box out of cardboard and hot glue.
I wanted it to have some color and a little bling, so I alternated hot-gluing two shades of pink crepe paper (ruffling them loosely as I glued) with pieces of the silver mesh ribbon, working my way around the box.
The only trouble with BSB-constructed piñatas is that they are mostly indestructible, so he usually ends up being the one that has to break them (like with the treasure chest). *sigh* The girls had a great time with it anyway!

    I LOVE this! We have had years were my kids HAVE to have pinatas, too! I usually love them but one year we had a hula doll pinata. Something was so wrong about asking kids to beat a hula girl. When it broke we were left with just her head. Hmmm. Just wasn't the vibe I was going for on that party! From now on no human pinatas for us! 😉
    LOVE your jewel pinata! Perfect for a spa party!

    Cute piñata shape you made! It's great how party planners can now modify the traditional piñata look to suit whatever theme.

    Very cute! We're not to the pinata stage yet, so this is all sorts of inspirational!
