Día de los Muertos

Day of the Dead is one of the holidays I look forward to come Fall…

The only way I can keep myself from being totally depressed when summer is over is to look ahead to the Holidays. Halloween comes first, followed quickly by another favorite of mine, Día de los Muertos or Day of the Dead. Since I love the romantic and beautiful idea of this holiday, last year I decided to make us a special dinner to celebrate and I used my Mr. Bones cookie cutter to make cookies and a fun centerpiece.

I have always loved Day of the Dead Bride & Groom images and sculptures so I was very excited to make us as cookie bride and groom. I would totally go in this dress and headpiece direction if we ever renew our vows!

For dinner we are making margaritas & guacamole boats and KF’s favorite green sauce enchiladas (recipe from Mad Hungry). We will reflect on those we have lost and miss dearly and enjoy a meal together.

Up next… Giving Thanks and, before we know it, Santa will be on the way! (I can hardly wait!)  Xo Dani

  • I love this holiday too… A chance to remember all the souls that went before us and to give thanks to those we love who are now resting in God’s perfect peace.

    Happy Autumn, Dani!
