4. Day of the Dead Makeup: Sport a half-dead attitude by donning yourself in some serious Dia de los Muertos makeup. Rawr!

5. Fringe Backdrop: You’ve gotta have a solid backdrop for you dessert table, your bar, or for a photo booth! We made this one out of tissue paper, available in our shop.

6. Tres Leche Skull Cake Balls: How fun are these? You can use edible food markers to make similar skull designs.

7. Horchata White Russians: These are obviously what The Dude would serve at his Dia de los Muertos party. Want to get your hands on those fun straws? We’ve got ’em in our shop!
