An Ombre Wedding Cake Piñata That Your Guests Will Love to Smack
I found this on the Etsy blog the other day and I just love this idea! Brittany Watson Jepsen (HouseThatLarsBuilt on Etsy) is simply brilliant. I haven’t smacked a piñata in ages.. but the idea of having the guests more involved in the celebration (versus just sitting down and eating) is very appealing to me!
“For this piñata, I chose to create a wedding cake shape, as it fits almost any wedding theme. Better yet, you can use your wedding colors to create an ombréeffect, as I created here with various shades and values of blues topped off with flower accents. (And for those who aren’t into to sugar, you could even substitute the piñata for the wedding cake.) For the favors, I added fortune cookies with sassy handwritten love fortunes on shades of blue paper strips. Your guests will leave happy and the happy couple get a chance to relieve some post-wedding whacks on the merry piñata.”
I think this is a great idea to encourage interaction between wedding guests!
Here are some materials needed:
Cardboard (the one-ply works best) cut in the shape of circles (2x 24” in diameter, 18”, 12”)
Cardboard cut in strips (2x 8” wide and 1 at 6.5”)
Tissue paper in various shades of the same color (I chose blue)
Strips of blue paper
Cord for hanging
