A Tulum Inspired Cinco de Mayo Fiesta

When you dip, I dip, we dip! Could there be a more fitting phrase for a Cinco de Mayo Fiesta? Get your scoops and salt ready because this holiday party will have you craving a margarita with a side of guacamole. Golden Arrow Events designed the Cinco de Mayo celebration with Tulum’s sandy beaches in mind. And just like Tulum, it’s an elevated experience. If you’re picturing bright green and red, like traditional fiestas, think again. Instead, they went with a modern and soft color palette that puts a trendy twist on Cinco de Mayo, and we think it will have you saying Ay! Ay! Ay!

Cinco de Mayo Fiesta

Melissa at Golden Arrow Events shares…

Our Cinco De Mayo styled shoot was inspired by the beauty of Tulum’s sandy beaches, beautiful architecture, and, of course, their delicious margaritas! When selecting our color scheme, we decided to go with soft tones (blush, tan + white) and natural wood accents to resemble one of our favorite hotels. We paired up with Tempo Urban Kitchen in Downey because of their impressive and tasty menu. If you are in Southern California, you definitely need to pay their restaurants a visit…as you enter you automatically are transformed to a sandy Mexico vacation.

Sabrina, our lead designer, came up with this simple but statement backdrop to feature a 90’s lyric for the shoot, “When you dip, I dip, we dip.” The inspiration behind using the lyric came from Sabrina’s and my love for music, margaritas, chips and salsa. We have shared some terrific laughter, created some terrific design ideas, while sharing in our favorite pass time. This backdrop came together perfectly with laser cut wording created by Double Dipped Calligraphy. They also made fun fiesta stir-sticks, because no cocktail is complete without them!  Adding some fresh ingredients created the fun pop of color and natural beauty that Tulum offers. Much appreciation to Halli Makennah for capturing this stunning setup!
