Take a look at this festive, fun & colorful 50th Birthday Celebration!!! We worked closely with the client’s U.S. wedding planner, Jayne at Just Jayne Events, and the resort planner at Rancho Pescadero, Katie Thompson, to bring the birthday girl’s vision to fruition!
Our client was so thrilled with our paper flower wall, hand-cut and designed by our Donna (on the left) with help from Perla (on the right). This was a photo op location at the entrance to the resort and then provided a back drop for the 3-tier birthday cake. Adding succulents in pots also added a fun element of greenery to the rustic wooden farm tables. Our flags, and paper flower pom-poms, glowed as the pink & orange lighting shone in the Rancho Pescadero Palm Grove.
Celebrate your special milestones in style! Have fun, and create your dream event, we’re here to help!
As the Cabo floral experts, it’s easy to tap into trends. We often hear the same words or descriptions from many different clients. That’s how we know what’s truly popular with our brides and grooms. The one word we keep hearing right now? RUSTIC.
And we love rustic! Now, of course, creating a rustic event on a beach in Mexico is a little bit different than having a rustic event in a barn, or on a farm, or in a meadow, or at a vineyard…wedding options that you may have in the U.S.
For us, most of our rustic weddings happen on a Cabo beach! And we love that! (Of course, we do create floral designs for weddings at Flora Farms, too, in neighboring San Jose del Cabo, which is a working farm. But most of our weddings are on or adjacent to the beach.)
Keeping your floral decor rustic is all about keeping your Cabo wedding look simple and natural with clean lines, while at the same time keeping it elegant.
So how do you do that?
Incorporate a lot of white flowers into your floral design. Baby’s breath is popular again as well in rustic weddings too. (Line your ceremony aisle with bunches of it, for a beautiful and rustic look.)
Use natural wood for many of your floral decor options. We recommend drift wood or curly willow. Create a chuppah with this natural wood, or let us design for you a table centerpiece made with some of our own Cabo beach driftwood with a candles incorporated into the wood.
Use succulents and more wild flowers, than traditional flowers.
Vintage metals look amazing with all of the above options. Set these directly on the beach to line your aisle way and include them in your table design as well.
Let’s take a minute and celebrate the most popular plant to now be a part of the Cabo wedding scene! It’s our little green friend…the succulent! It’s popping up everywhere… from rustic farm weddings to beachfront seaside weddings like we have here in our beautiful destination wedding location, Cabo San Lucas. And we at Cabo Flowers & Cakes couldn’t be happier!!!
Succulents grow as an individual bloom and are the perfect shade of a mellow, mild green. They add color and texture to any floral arrangement without stealing the glory from other beautiful blooms. They are hardy and long-lasting, and add a bit of fun too!
We love to add succulents to bouquets (bridal and bridesmaid), table centerpieces, as boutonnieres (not usually the whole bloom but just a snippet of one), and as mini arrangements perfect for a cocktail table or in a restroom.
Really, the only limit to what you can use a succulent for is your imagination or your budget.
