5 Steps for a memorable Day of the Dead Party

Are you ready to turn up the heat and host a Dia de los Muertos celebration that's cheesier than a queso dip? Well, amigo, you're in the right place. Follow these five sizzling steps, and you'll have a party that'll make the spirits come back!

🌼 Step 1: Set the Stage with Marigold Magic. 🌼

The first step to creating a memorable Dia de los Muertos fiesta is to bring the vibrant marigold flowers into the spotlight. Line your entryway with these dazzling blossoms to create a warm and welcoming path for both the living and the spirits. The marigolds aren't just for show; they're like a GPS for our departed friends, leading them straight to the heart of the party!

🎉 Step 2: Create an Ofrenda to Honor Loved Ones. 🎉

Now, it's time to make an ofrenda that's so beautiful it could make a sugar skull cry. Gather up photographs of your dearly departed, their favourite foods and drinks, and any cherished mementoes. Arrange them on an altar, add a few candles, and watch as the magic unfolds. This is where the spirits of your loved ones will feel right at home, savouring the flavours and soaking up the love.

🍽️ Step 3: Prepare a Feast Fit for the Afterlife and dress to impress. 🍽️

No party is complete without some mouthwatering eats, and Dia de los Muertos is no exception. Whip up a feast of tacos, nachos, or quesadillas, or order in from your favourite Mexican restaurant and don’t forget to whip up a Margarita jug or 2. To impress all your guests why not paint your face like a sugar skull, here is a tutorial on how to do it like a professional!

🎶 Step 4: Get the Groove Going with Music.🎶

It's time to get your dancing shoes on and create a playlist that'll make your heart salsa! Gather up some mariachi classics and traditional Mexican tunes that will have everyone's hips swaying and feet tapping. It's the kind of music that'll make you want to dance like nobody's watching, and that's exactly what Dia de los Muertos is all about!

Here are some links to Spotify Playlists to get you started!

💀 Step 5: Encourage Spirit-ual Connection. 💀

Share stories and memories about their loved ones who have crossed over. It's a time to remember, celebrate, and honour the people who've touched our lives.
