Cinco de Mayo Backyard Picnic

Charlotte, NC

Two weeks ago, one of my closest friends, and an event planner in Charlotte, Lauren Pressley, approached me regarding a Cinco de Mayo idea. We both love entertaining friends and know that our  brides & grooms do as well. Since most of our couples love an awesome margarita, guacamole, and any reason to throw a party, so we created a backyard Cinco de Mayo picnic.

We love the idea of a couple sampling the food before their guests arrive for an evening of relaxing and enjoying each other's company!
