Bride and groom, Laurel and Daniel, came to me through fab event planner, Cindy with Engaging Events. They were looking for a creative, yet soft and pretty way of incorporating “Cinco de Mayo” into their May 5th Lowcountry wedding. I learned quite a bit about the traditional Papel de Picado which are traditionally hung at Mexican celebrations. I also gained quite a bit of respect for those artists that create true punched out Papel. They are extremely complicated banners with the negative space punched out. We created a little more stylized versions. There are three flags – one each for their names, date and location. We’re also wrapping the invitation in a “Papel de Picado belt.” Also, Laurel and Cindy introduced me to this amazing Etsy Artisan: AyMujer. Just had to share his amazing work!
