Day of the Dead Party
If you’re looking for an alternative to your typical Halloween party, decor or activities this year, may we suggest a Day of the Dead party? You can, of course, do this for kids, family or coeds but our spin is doing it for a girl’s night in. In fact, my friend Brooke and I were planning it for months but then time got away from us, schedules got busy, we’ve spent too much lately… you know how it goes. So, instead we’re sharing all of our secrets so you can take the sugar skulls and run with them! Happy planning!
Set the tone with these invites.
Line a tray or platters with this fine paper.
FOOD & DRINK
Mini Molcajetes with Guac
Spiced Pumpkin Soup served in small white pumpkins
Empanadas, Flautas and Tacos
Hire a hairstylist to come treat your ladies and give them a braided ‘do. Or ask a friend who’s good with hair to help out. Have flowers on hand to adorn for a finished look.
Who says they’re just for kids? Adorn your hands with bones for a fun photo op.
A favorite of mine, give your guests several wooden pieces and encourage them to write challenges on them. Later in the night, after several drinks, partake in a playful game of “Jenga“, where each piece acts as a truth, dare, charade of challenge. It ups the ante and makes it much more personal.
