Living in Los Angeles, Mexican food and Mexican culture are things my friend Anna and I adore and wanted to celebrate. Being three-year-old girls, our daughters said that DORA is something they adore and wanted to celebrate. So to honor their request for a Dora party, we threw them a FIESTA!  Despite the drizzly day, the party was a total blast for all involved, with lots of fun details to bring Dora’s world to life while honoring her mexican heritage.

Check out lots of fun THIRD BIRTHDAY FIESTA activities, foods, decor, and games after the jump…
