festa junina party ideas

Brazilians know how to PARTY! During the months of June + July, parties are held to celebrate Saints Anthony, John, and Peter. Friends gather to enjoy traditional foods, drinks, and theatrical dance inherited from the French called quadrilha (a type of square dance). The celebrations are very colorful and often include lots of paper lanterns and colorful banners. Um, can I move to Brazil?! No? Ok, well I can at least host a super-fab Festa Junina party like this one submitted by Crissy’s Crafts!

Dancing and fun games for the children make for an awesome party!

The dessert table had some of the traditional Festa Junina food like corn bread, pacoca (peanut butter candy), pe de moleque (dessert made out of peanuts), sweet popcorn,  brigadeiro(chocolate fudge), sweet and salty peanuts to name a few. Corn on the cob is a must at any Festa Junina, instead of real corn, Crissy made marshmallow corn on the cob using jumbo and mini marshmallowsLynlee’s Petite Cakes made the cupcake toppers to match exactly with the Festa Junina printable that Bird’s Party custom designed especially for the occasion.
