LUXURY ON THE RIVIERA MAYA
Cinco de Mayo is coming up this weekend, which naturally has me thinking about Mexico. I'm specifically remembering a recent trip I took to the beautiful Riviera Maya: I was invited to speak at the Inspire Smart Success Experience and was fortunate enough to be able to tack on a little family vacation at the nearby Banyan Tree Mayakoba. The resort was an intoxicating blend of extreme luxury and service, set among the lush jungle where the ancient Maya once ruled. Heaven!
If you're thinking about getting married in - or just escaping to - a magical oasis, this place is it. That's exactly what lucky couple Sara and Douglas decided to do for their wedding, and we were beyond excited to get to design their custom invites. Look below and you'll discover how we managed to tie in the unique tropical vibe through bright colors and hints of local flora and fauna (such as iguanas!) as well as mystical Mayan art.
For those of you who love the neon pinks and oranges that make Sara and Douglas's invites pop, you're in luck because they're all the rage this spring - see this week's Get the Look for a sampling. Then be sure to check out muse Sara Jane Mercer's stellar recipe for Mexican-inspired chocolate truffles. If you find yourself enjoying a margarita (or two) this weekend, don't forget to raise a glass to the joys of Mexico. Salud!
