Dia de los Muertos Decor

Every year my husband's sister throws a big Halloween dance party. She works all year on the theme and decor. This year she moved it to Nov. 1st for Dia de los Muertos or day of the dead. I want to show you some pics of her decor. Tonight is the party so I will be back with our costumes and her house all set for the party.

Her and one of her good friend's have worked hours on custom banners, garlands and decor.

I just loved her day of the dead wreath for her front door.

Customized dia de los muertos skulls.

All of her decor always has a royal theme. Love the crown on the gold skull. These centerpieces were done in upcycled tomato cans.

Day of the dead mantle in black and orange.
Stay tuned this week for our costumes and more of her cool day of the dead party.
