Tag Archives: bird seed


Charlotte and I made cascarones this year; we are starting a new tradition!

Casarones are are empty eggshells that have been colored and typically filled with confetti. You smash them over your friend/loved ones head. They are used around festive occasions in Mexico and increasingly, the US southwest border states.

I thought the idea of it sounded super fun but didn’t like the thought of questionably biodegradable confetti all over the yard. So we filled ours with bird seed! Will let you know how the smashing part goes 🙂
