Cinco de Mayo

The inspiration came from an authentic Mexican Fiesta. When we think of Cinco de Mayo is traditionally not celebrated in Mexico, with the exception on Puebla, that being said because it is so well known in the states, we wanted to present it in a way that is authentic to Mexico.

There is not a lot of fuss, but a lot of color and love, and Food. We incorporated Mexican blankets known as sarapes and worked in classic mexican flavors. We had concha macarons flavored with dulce de leche, coffee, cocoa and cinnamon, pinatas macarons which were horchata filled with sprinkles, (don’t forget to break them open). Caramel and spicy mango sombreros and tiny nopales which were classic margarita. 


We filled the table with DIY maracas, tacos, tequila and personalized limes. It was small, but a festive fiesta for friends.
