Many have asked, and I simply can’t decide on a single word to describe why we love Frida Kahlo so much. She was a champion in following her own path and in pursuing her art with abandon despite the troubled-road life put her on. She was her own woman, always celebrating life with those she loved, and as passionate about entertaining as I am.
As I learned from Guadalupe Rivera Marin, Diego Rivera’s daughter, in this Pati Jinich interview for The Washington Post, “… Kahlo may have orchestrated the meals and gatherings with artistic brilliance, … [she] was a wonderful host: She loved setting up the house and adorning and decorating everything.” Sounds like Frida and I would have been a great hosting duo!
“Frida set beautiful Mexican tables with gorgeous tablecloths
and tableware ...”, says Marin.
So that may be it! Surrounded by Frida-everything in the shop, we feel the essence of her artistic eye, and I can’t help envision the perfect dinner party or fiesta with those Frida-inspired touches I know she would have used herself.
As we celebrate what would have been this magnificent woman’s 111th birthday, I’ve gathered the Top 10 Must-Have Frida Kahlo Gifts to get you in the spirit of this celebration. And who knows, maybe you’ll be inspired to host your own fiesta with those Frida Kahlo touches, too.
