Temporary tattoo’s are becoming ever more popular at weddings and hen parties and we’re HUGE fans of them over at Bespoke Bride!! If you love the idea of a tattoo station all decorated up awesome for your guests to have fun at then today’s post is for you because we’ve got Amanda from Doris Loves here teaching us how we can style a tattoo station in a Mexican theme (AKA one of our absolute faves!!). I mean seriously how cool does this look?! First off you’ll need your tattoo station in a box which you can find over in our newly launched BB boutique, then away we go!

“To create your very own Mexican inspired Temporary Tattoo Station a great place to always start is a Mexican rug/blanket called a ‘serape’ (yeap just looked that up!). The colours just scream Mexico and FUN. For ours I am SO lucky to have an American friend from Tuson, Arizona, who had the real thing! But head straight over to Etsy to find the perfect serape of your own! We set this down as a base, to cover our table. We wanted to add some rustic charm to so we used some old archiving trays that we had left over from our own wedding, we picked these up at a local car boot, but some rustic apple crates would work just as well. We popped these right on top of our serape.

Now I don’t know about you but when I think Mexico I think of spikey plants, so off I went to the local garden centre and grabbed my first cactus’ and succulents, if you haven’t succumb to this trend yet be warned once you start you just can’t stop and I haven’t managed to kill one yet!
