We had the absolute privilege in to be contacted by Cornershop Productions to be part of a Mexican fiesta-inspired shoot for the March 2016 issue of Ireland’s best-read wedding source, Irish Brides Magazine! When they contacted us with their idea in mind, they described the shoot as ‘Mexican bridal themed’ with ‘lots of colour’. We knew just what would fulfil these requirements, so we pointed them towards our Mexican papel picado decorations.
After a quick browse through our ARTMEXICO collection, they chose to use our Coral Collection Papel Picado Bunting. Each of the flags of this bunting set come with a creative lacey design and they are extra unique because their edges are rounded off to create a semi-circular effect. This design delicacy is then contrasted with a range of coral-inspired colours, including bright red and yellow accents!
And the Results...
Normally, we say the more papel picado, the better. But for this shoot, the ladies at Cornershop Productions chose to pair a strand of our Coral Bunting with other awesome items from Mexican decor retailers, and the results came out as an eye-catching array of happiness-inducing fiesta decorations! It just goes to show that whether your goal is a white wedding, or something a little more colourful, papel picado can be a versatile and playful addition to your theme.
Though the years may change, papel picado remains timeless! A big thanks to Irish Brides for the feature, and to Cornershop Productions for coordinating things.
