My party-planning checklist typically looks a little something like this:
- Send out a Facebook invite to spread the word.
- Make a bumpin' playlist with the perfect mix of current and throwback jams.
- Stock up on drinks.
- Stock up on plenty of snacks for when said drinks hit.
- Decorate the space with corny ornamentations.
But now, I have a very vital addition for my checklist: order a Nipyata online in advance. "A what?" you ask? A Nipyata, which is essentially a piñata filled with booze. These adult-approved contraptions look like regular ol' piñatas at first glance: they're colorful, come in fun shapes, and are covered with tiny scraps of paper. But once you give 'em a few hard whacks, out comes a flurry of mini liquor bottles and candies to chase away that strong taste. Sounds pretty heavenly, right?
You can order premade Nipyatas online for doorstep delivery, or you can customize your own — straight down to shape and type of liquor stuffed inside — if you have a specific party theme or alcohol preferences in mind. Consider me sold. Ahead, shop a handful of Nipyatas that are currently in stock online, and then keep reading to see photos snapped by satisfied customers. Dibs on that pizza-shaped one!
