There are just some styled wedding shoots that not only catch your eye, but take your breath away, too. As a collaboration between the talents of Green Wedding Shoes and Heavenly Blooms coupled with the amazing photography of This Modern Romance, this gorgeous Spanish/Mexican-inspired set is definitely one of those! It includes a lovely main table and a cake and sweets display that we knew would be perfect for a Cinco de Mayo-themed wedding reception.
Not at all your typical fiesta setting, these table displays present key Mexican and Spanish references in such a subtle and stylish manner. You can’t help but fall in love and be inspired!
Be Ready to be Absolutely Inspired!
First of all, how can you not love this color palette of peaches and pinks with verdant hues and splashes of aqua? (Of course, it does help to have a weathered double doorway framed in aqua as a backdrop!) Then, the ornately carved antique chairs and the white papel picado bunting overhead bring in the perfect Hispanic flair.
A pink runner and napkins provide a sweet base for the row of glass cylinders holding assorted succulents–mini cactus and echeveria atop white pinto beans. Then, terra cotta dishes holding pillar candles and peach roses add touches of color and softness.
The place settings are equally appealing. Elegant menu cards are held in place by single succulents. And take a look at the flatware–aren’t those curled handles stunning?
More Stunning Details for the Perfect Cinco de Mayo Wedding
As if the main table wasn’t fabulous enough, separate displays were also set up for the cake, sweets, drinks, and favors. If you look closely, you’ll see that the cake itself is an elegant take on the traditional papel picado banners for Cinco de Mayo. So lovely against the rustic decor elements alongside!
Notice how the frosted cupcakes are margarita-flavored (of course!), with even the requisite lime garnish as toppers. While rows of Jarritos soda bottles make a colorful sight, accented with succulents and roses; along with glass mugs of Mexican hot chocolate. Then, as guest favors, how charming are these simple brown paper bags printed with “Dulce” (sweet) and tied with peach organza ribbons?
This is definitely one wedding party setting that won our hearts the minute we saw it. But we also noted how the decorative elements can actually be replicated by couples wanting a similarly stunning tablescape and cake display at their own Cinco de Mayo-themed wedding reception!
