Have you ever heard of Dia de los Muertos? I hadn’t until I moved to Texas. Otherwise known as “Day of the Dead”, this is an occasion celebrated in Texas & Mexico. It is a way for family members to remember loved ones, and to help them along their spiritual journey after parting the earth. The first time I saw sugar skulls, I thought they were…mmm…unsettling? Now that I have lived her for so long, I don’t think twice when I see them, and I can truly appreciate their craftsmanship and beauty. I hosted a “Dia de los Muertos” dinner party, and I’d love to show you how easy it is to recreate! I’ll be including recipes, and even the files for these cut “Papel Picado” (banners). Even the place setting flower is included! This post will be very picture heavy, so please be patient with loading. Hopefully all the bright colors will inspire you!
BASIC SET UP
This was the candy bar /dessert bar. Above it, I featured large sugar skull paper banners. I also have some of the little flowers hanging as a banner.
