Something you should never miss in a birthday party in my country is a piñata. There, there are many people who makes such things and for a very accessible price. Piñatas brings so much fun to a birthday party.
If you guys are in a place where piñatas are not such a common thing, why not surprising the guests by doing one yourself? or... if you are in a place where finding a piñata is not a difficult thing, you can also do it yourself just for fun!
You know that the most important gifts are not the ones you buy, but the ones you make yourself.
Its easy... but... it takes time... BUT ... at the end... IT COMPLETELY WORTH IT! ;)
Here I show you the piñata I made for the 50´s birthday party of a special person.
