{Table Top Tuesday} Destination Mexico!

Good evening everyone!  Today is the last {Table Top Tuesday} for February is Destination Month! 
This week we will be looing at Mexican Themed Weddings.  So, prepare for some spicey and sizzling hot inspirations!

{Table Settings}
Add some unique touches to your tables to make your wedding stand out as a Mexican themed wedding.  Think about using Spanish in your place cards or table numbers instead of your own language.  Drape your tables in brightly coloured striped linens and make creative centerpieces that utilize cacti, sombreros, or lanterns.

Many printing companies will already have cinco de mayo invitations.  So, you can use these a place to start for your invitations and other stationary.  Think about using fun Mexican images like maracas, sombreros, or hanging lace garland.  Again, you may want to add some Spanish into your invitations and stationary to really make it fit with your theme (at least enough that everyone will be able to understand)!

{Food & Desserts}
For a Mexican themed wedding, think about serving a delicious buffet of your favourite Mexican foods.  Try serving different salsas and dips for delicious appetizers, followed by tacos, burritos, corn, and beans.  And to top it all off with dessert, instead of serving a cake, offer your guests powdered pecan cookies - a traditional wedding dessert.

Tomorrow we're looking at some Mexican inspired wedding fashions for {What to Wear Wednesday} so don't miss out!
