Day of the Dead is really a celebration of LIFE. It reminds us that we come from all our ancestors who have preceded us. Day of the Dead themed weddings are a popular and new wedding choice embraced by Latinos and non-Latinos as well for their special day!
Brides interpret Day of the Dead & use its imagery for their weddings because they like what it means. They love the fun & color, but more importantly, the inspiration of it. Eternal Love & Til Death Do Us Part are sayings with special meaning.
We help over 500 brides & bridal consultants a year with folk art, cake toppers, hand cut papel picado banners, milagros, favors and chocolate molds. Not into the skeleton thing? We offer beautiful papel picado banners in traditional designs, oilcloth tablecloths for receptions, hand made flowers & milagros to make any wedding a FIESTA!
Summer's almost over. The warm, sunny days crescendo Labor Day weekend, when we're supposed to put away the white peddle pushers and finish buying school clothes. Annoying TV reruns are almost over — which actually means you have some time to dedicate evenings to making sugar skull blanks for your Day of the Dead parties & school projects!
Get 'em done and stack 'em up! 44 Original Medium Skulls come from a ten pound bag of sugar. Should take about an hour to whip out during a one hour episode of Rizzoli and Isles. Contemplate the satire of life and death… then store the skull blanks in a cardboard box and you'll be really prepared for Day of the Dead on November 1 & 2!
Thank you for your business and for supporting beautiful handmade folk art.
