Día De Los Muertos

Día De Los Muertos

On the eve of Hallowe'en and The Day of the Dead, we thought it appropriate to share a super fun "Día De Los Muertos” (Mexican "Day of the Dead") event we attended last week, as part of the Austin International Live Events Association's (ILEA) program of social events for members and potential members. The Austin chapter is one of ILEA's largest and most vibrant chapters in the world, and being a new event venue, we thought it would be fun for The Cedars Ranch team to meet and mingle with other event professionals out there. 

We knew we were in for a fun evening when we were greeted by Mariachi Amor ... 

Held at the gorgeous Brodie Homestead in South Austin, Epic Event Design in conjunction with many other talented vendors created quite the magical ambiance! Live music (Spanish guitarist in the background) was provided by Austin Music Works ... 

There were plenty of specially themed sweets and treats too, courtesy of Blake Pops and Polkadots Cupcake Factory ...   

The Cedars Ranch being a new "green" venue, we were happy to meet the people of Desert Door. Their Texas Sotol is a distilled spirit from wild-harvested sotol plants. We love that the plant is sustainably harvested, as well as their practice of returning all plant waste directly back to the earth. Of course, we had to have a taste too ... for research purposes of course!

What's an event without a photo booth?! SUM XP's customizable photo booth was a little different! To match the theme of the event, the captured image underwent a dramatic "Día De Muertos" transformation! Here's Brenda, our operations manager, undergoing the transformation!  

We enjoyed some wonderful food by Catering With A Twist, and loved the gorgeous table settings and decor by Premiere Events and Loot Vintage Rental. Check out these amazing white skull dessert cakes by The Cake Plate (to the left in the picture)! Amazing (and delicious!) ... 

A huge thank you to ILEA Austin and all the event sponsors for a wonderful evening. We look forward to working with many of these event professionals, when we open in 2019!

Stay tuned as we have an exciting announcement for you all next week!

Until then,

Marilyn & Bill
