day of the dead newsflash

Dia de Los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a multi-day celebration honoring those who have passed away. Originating in Mexico and now celebrated around the world, Dia de Los Muertos takes place over several days at the end of October and beginning of November. Today, a family might celebrate Day of the Dead by decorating a loved ones' gravesite, creating a small altar (or ofrenda) in their home, or attending a parade or other celebration in their community!

Our DAY OF THE DEAD kit includes 2 sugar skulls, materials for decoration including royal icing and accessories, items to make paper marigolds, and ideas of how to make a mini ofrenda. Kits are $40 each and can be purchased on line here
