Mimosa Weddings

I have been concentrating on what truly reflects Spain and how to create weddings to compliment the seasons here in Andalucia. Driving up the mountain to my home here all the mimosa trees and bushes are flowering thus giving me the idea to create a Mimosa themed wedding using the fashionable yellow and greys but with an Andalucian touch of terracotta.

It has been difficult to source images to refect this scheme but I picture bunches of mimosa in terracotta jugs, acacia honey pots for gifts, terracotta votives, mimosa cocktails, and polka dot favours and fans in yellows.

Here are some of the images I have found to reflect a Mimosa themed wedding and check out this fabulous recipe for Mimosa cocktails, don't need a wedding as an excuse to make these!
Mimosa Cocktails

2 cups clementine or orange juice
2 cups pear juice
½ cup Cointreau
Two bottles chilled dry cava
2 cups ice cubes
Orange slices and fresh sliced strawberries for garnish
Combine the orange juice, pear juice, and Cointreau in the punch bowl and mix well.

Just before serving, slowly pour in the cava.
Add the ice cubes, garnish with orange and strawberry slices, and serve.
