MHCT&M: Day of the Dead Party Ideas

    Hello and happy Friday everyone!

    Can you believe we are more than halfway through October already and Halloween along with the other holidays are right around the corner?! SSOOOOOOO crazy to me!

    Today, I am here to share some wonderful ideas to help you throw a Day of the Dead party. I am not typically a Halloween person, (GASP, I know!), nor do I celebrate the Day of the Dead in my family but there is just something about this colorful holiday honoring those that have gone before us that I didn’t want to overlook it during all the other holidays of this time of year.

    I have gathered many ideas to help you throw a Day of the Dead party of your own or to add to the ideas that you may currently have for a party.

    Greet your guests immediately by creating this DIY Sugar Skull that can be placed on your door as welcome to the party.

    Paint pumpkins with sugar skulls. Leave them black and white or add color. Either way they make the perfect decorations and they could even be created at the party for a fun activity!

    Your guests will definitely get into the party spirit when they walk up an see this colorful porch greeting them!

    For a more sophisticated party, hand draw sugar skulls onto wine bottles and use them as candle holders. These could also be used around the photos of your loved ones that you are honoring.

    These little skeleton treats would make a great treat during the party or as a party favor.

    Love these Day of the Dead Sugar Skull painted pots! Place succulents or your favorite flowers inside. They make perfect decorations and also can be a party favor!

    Create your own Papel Picado to hang throughout your party for even more color!
