In honor of Fiesta currently going on in Santa Barbara, we are sharing this Hacienda Themed party we produced for UCSB's Board of Regents. This thirty-five year old Old Spanish Days celebration is a reminder of the Mexican spirit of the town and preservation of the heritage.
I was tickled pink to have been hired to produce this event, because I was born in Mexico City, and celebrated first-hand the folklore of the culture. One philosophy I carry with producing my events, is incorporating the five senses in order to enhance the guest experience.
From the sights and beauty of decor:
(sombreros and daisy's floating in the pool)
(the view of the Santa Ynez Mountains and Hacienda style home - featured on Architectural Digest - location helped)
The sound of an incredibly talented all female Mariachi band - Mariachi Reyna de Los Angeles
The smell and taste of authentic Mexican Food by Cowboy Flavor which we showcased in a mercado-style custom built buffet.
Down to flan for dessert and a coffee station incorporating the colors and textiles of Mexican ceramics from Classic Party Rentals
