“Feet, why do I need them if I have wings to fly?”
Frida Kahlo


The holiday of Cinco de Mayo (fifth of May) commemorates the victory of a band of Mexicans over the French army at the battle of Puebla in 1862. Although originally a traditional Mexican fiesta, Cinco de Mayo has come to be known as a celebration of democracy, community, and freedom. Held each year on the 5th of May, celebrations include community fairs, parades, cookouts, barbeques, and parties.

 Festivities often feature live music, margaritas, salsa and guacamole. Festive decorations include lots of color, paper flowers,ruffles, streamers, and balloons. And the best part, the pinata, filled with a surprise treat inside.

The colors of Cinco de Mayo are bright, festive, uplifting, and fun. We want to explore the incorporation of traditional Mexican elements into the modern day fiesta (or interior space) in a  beautifully Choreographed dance of culture and tradition.

Eating great food with friends and family is a time honored tradition and an important part of celebrating any event. Outdoor picnics display an arrangement of bright colored linens, candles, flowers, and colorful drinks in a beautiful visual display.
