Piñata Fun: Add a Fun and Decorative Piñata to your Next Birthday Party with our Piñata Buying Guide

November 5, 2013

Although piñatas are widely associated with the Mexican culture, and therefore are most used during Mexican holidays or celebrations, they make a great addition to any type of party. Kids especially love piñatas, and they make for a great activity at birthday parties, or any party where kids need to be kept busy. When you choose a piñata that ties in with the theme of the party, the piñata can also serve as a fun and festive decoration! Here is a guide to Windy City Novelties’ piñata selection: 


Holiday Piñatas

Hang a piñata at your next holiday party or get-together to have something fun for the kids, or adults, to participate in. There are piñatas available for a variety of different holidays, including Mardi Gras, Easter, Halloween and more!


You should especially have a piñata at your Cinco de Mayo fiesta! Piñatas are an old Mexican tradition, so it is only fitting to have one at a party that honors a Mexican holiday. Choose from a variety of Cinco de Mayo themed piñatas, such as a sombrero, a burro, a bull or a chili pepper.


Sports Piñatas

Add a sports-themed piñata to your next sporting event pregame or watch party. Keep the kids busy during your Super Bowl party with a football shaped piñata, or with a basketball piñata during the NCAA championship game. These piñatas also make for great birthday activities at children’s sports-themed birthday parties!


Special Occasion Piñatas

As previously stated, piñatas make for great items at birthday parties. If your child’s birthday party doesn’t have a particular theme, you can get them a general birthday-themed piñata that all the kids can take turns hitting.


Theme Party Piñatas

You can find a piñata for just about any type of theme party! Get your daughter a Disney Princess piñata, or an enchanted castle piñata for her princess themed birthday party, or hang a treasure chest piñata at your son’s pirate themed birthday party.


When hosting a fun luau get-together, hang a tiki or luau pig piñata in the backyard for guests to enjoy!
