Inspiration Board #25 : Cinco de Mayo

Happy Cinco de Mayo! Instead of the typical bright and bold Mexican inspiration, I think a sweet palette of greens, yellows, pinks, and dusty blues would be fun. Some succulents. A taco truck. Margarita cupcakes. A toast with tequila shots. Such a festive fun day!

Another element I love from Mexico is papel picado. Papel picado is the traditional folk art from Mexico that involves cutting out intricate patterns on colorful tissue paper. The tissue paper is then glued to a string in a line to form banners which are used as decorations for festivities throughout the year. This wedding used them in all white which I loved the look of – such a pretty element. A great resource for them is Ay mujer. They will customize them with your name, date – and your own design! They also make cute little flags.
