Are you ready to FIESTA!? :) Tania Fischer of Tania Fischer Design and Veronica Plasencia of Roni Sugar Creations collaborated and dreamed up this beautiful Frida Kahlo Inspired Mexican Party with such amazing DIY projects! I know you won’t miss it (it’s 6×5 feet!), but I just have to point out the INCREDIBLE handcrafted paper flower backdrop… and the delicious looking food… and the theme itself, how FUN and festive!

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Traditional Mexican China, Succulents in Tomato Sauce Cans, Gold Chivari Chairs & Mexican Rebozos
– Empanadas, Pan Dulce and Tamales + Horchata, Sangria, Margaritas and “Aguas Frescas”
– A Mini “Mercado” for Favors and Photo Booth (Unibrow, Braids, Flowers & Mustache Props)

PARTY DETAILS, as told by Tania

Some months ago, Roni and I  met for breakfast and I told her I wanted a to have a Mexican Party, and she wanted to have a Frida Kahlo Party, so we decided to make a mix of both, to commemorate Mexican independence day.

In Mexico you can find beautiful paper flowers, so I gave my self the task to make some for the backdrop, Holly Molly! never thinking it was going to be so addictive, in the end the back drop measures 6 x 5 feet and overwhelmingly cool! Roni painted Frida in 1996, and she gave it to me to see what I could do to incorporate her, found this amazing frame on a flee market, but didn’t want to cover the flowers so used a clear acrylic mat, to create then to complete her surrealistic world, incorporating the cages with hand blown hearts, another traditional craft from Mexico.

We had name tags that had Frida’s picture and some 3D flowers

We had traditional food Pozole, tamales, tacos, empanadas, pan dulce. Our Bar had Mexican beer, sangria, margaritas, and “Aguas Frescas” Jamaica y Horchata.

The table was set in a traditional family style, using succulents instead of  flowers on gold pots and tomato sauce cans, the gold touches to give it an elegant look. Traditional Mexican china, and a clear glass china with a clear sticker with different art of Frida. To accentuate the chairs we used Mexican Rebozos.

As a fun touch and favors, we had a “little mercado” with different items you will find in a Mexican Market with Bags that had either a tin heart, a scapulary or a rag doll as decorations.

Next to el mercado we had photo booth, with a huge poster of Frida and our props were Frida’s hairpieces with braids and flowers, uni-eyebrow, Diego’s glasses and a typical mustache, of course we used some glitter.

Like any Mexican party everything involved music, food and friends.
