How to Throw a Day of the Dead Party

With Halloween, comes Day of the Dead. The Mexican Día de Muertos holiday has increased in popularity year on year around the globe. A holiday to celebrate the dead, rather than to fear them. Full of colourful decorations, flowers, candles, skulls and a touch of Mexican fiesta fun! We can certainly see why this take on Halloween is growing in popularity.

The Día de Muertos holiday begins on the 31st October and runs right through to the 2nd November. A three day fiesta celebrating with friends, family and neighbours, remembering those loved ones who have passed in the most joyful of ways.

So the time is about right to begin your own Day of the Dead celebration too. Think roses and marigolds (a symbolic flower at this event) and colourful streamers to add a sense of carnival spirit. Use lots of skulls as decorations, scatter around table tops or even attach to your costume. And not forgetting the all important candy skull faces!
