Fiesta, Fiesta

A little throwback to fiestas of the past

I can't help but thing of the R Kelly Song with this title. A fiesta theme, I'm not going to lie, is one of my favorites to design. Not just because of the bright colors, but because of the details that are apart of our culture that bring so much love. They are details you see at every Mexican fiesta.

  • Sarapes

  • Mexican Candy

  • Papel picado

  • Pan dulce

  • Tacos

  • Mexican beer

  • Colorful flowers

  • Mariachis


Cinco de Mayo

Fiesta Sweet 16 - 2018

This was my first time taking this theme & making it modern. & to say this is one of my favorite interpretations of a theme is an understatement. I absolutely love how every single detail turned out flawless. It was the perfect amount of fun & still had all the traditional Mexican elements. With a little Carmen twist.

Cinco De Mayo

Fiesta Baby Shower - 2018

This baby shower, I've never shared. (I have too many events from last year I never had an opportunity to share.)

This was such a fun design. It had so many details from the balloon garland, to the Mexican candy, to custom diaper cake & , different textures, pops of color.

The diaper cake & pinata were some of my favorite custom pieces I have made to date.

Elegant Mexican Wedding - 2018

El amor es Dulce

I remember meeting with these clients , the couple telling about their wedding & things they love. & telling me they were interested in a mexican candy table. (Me thinking, pshh I've done this theme a million times, I've got this) & then them telling me "but we want it to match our color scheme" which was blush pink, ivory & gold.

Game on. I love a good challenge.

I had so much fun coming up with ways to design an elegant Mexican Candy display.

Details to look for

  • Blush Pink drapes

  • Custom all white & blush Pinata

  • Custom painted maracas

  • Custom painted Sombrero

  • Ivory sequin linen

  • Custom white papel picado

  • Mexican candy

  • Marble stands

  • Gold accents

  • Custom signage "el amor es dulce"

We designed just the dessert table display, but it blended in perfectly with the couples couple's original color scheme.
