Altar Decorations

Ofrendas ~ Día del los Muertos Altars

Ofrendas are built inside the homes of the believers of Day of the Dead in Central and Southern Mexico. While there are regional differences in styles of the ofrendas due to income or custom, there are many altar mainstays to greet the weary spirits when they arrive. The children return on November first and the adults join their families on November 2.

Children’s ofrendas are customized and decorated with delightful foods, candies and toys in miniature… miniature tamales, chocolates, tiny breads etc. Adult ofrendas feature the traditional candles, fruit, tamales, mole, mezcal, cempasuchil as well as photos, fashion magazines, cigars or folk art skeletons… and every ofrenda has pan de muerto and sugar skulls!
