We had the honor to style this baptism for a wonderful family. Since both parents families are from Jalisco, Mexico they wanted their son's baptism to have a Charro feeling. A charro is a traditional horseman from Mexico, originating in the central-western regions primarily in the state of Jalisco. A charreada is a specific type of Mexican rodeo. We incorporated cactuses, burlap, and items that remind us of Mexico such as papel picado table runner, rope, Mexican Talavera tiles, succulents, rebozo (rebozo is a long flat garment with hand weaved colorful flowers and fringes called rapacejos. Frida Kahlo was know to always wear a rebozo), and lastly the molcajete one of the most important tool in a Mexican kitchen, (molcajete is the Mexican version of a mortar) we added fresh flowers to the bowl of the molcajete, and we also used the famous and beautiful Mexican Talavera tiles as cupcake stands and talavera plates for desserts.
The little horse centerpieces were brought from Tonala, Jalisco-Mexico. Some of the best crafts of Mexico are made in Tonala.
We had so much fun setting up for this cute little baby charro.
