Overdecorating is in our blood. Latinos are not wallflowers. We pretty much like to stand out, and when it comes to decorating we will not make an exception. It is customary for Latinos to make souvenirs for parties to give to the attendees. We usually make them ourselves to add embellishments to the cake and table. The more colors and stuff we add to it, the prettier it is—to us. Look at the birthday table above. Cute, isn't it? But is it necessary? How much more crap could one add? Gee, take it down a notch mi gente.
