Day of the Dead, or Dia de los Muertos, is celebrated on Nov 1 and is typically a day for family and friends to get together to pray for loved ones who have died. There are so many beautiful colors and fun things to do for a party. My Day of the Dead cupcakes are super simple and perfect for a kid-friendly party.
I love collaborating with amazing bloggers! Several talented Arizona bloggers and myself got together and planned a kid friendly Day of the Dead party. I just love that I was able to join forces with some talented crafty/DIY bloggers to make this whole party beautiful. Don’t be surprised that my two contributions were food related.
For our party we decided on using orange, purple, bright pink, and black. Don’t they all look great together. So festive, bright, and fun. The kids loved the party.
I love these cute masks the kids decorated for the party! The kids were given some crayons and were inspired by our decorations, but they didn’t have any specific instructions on what to do.
