Day of the Dead Ofrenda

Good morning! Can you believe we are already in November? Some of the days kind of drag by, but the month is gone before I know it! I have some exciting news for you! Lauren and I have joined in with 50 other bloggers with some great Christmas ideas and the series will start this Friday!! I can’t wait to see what ideas everyone has come up with. There is sure to be something for everyone! So come back on Friday for the kick-off!

Did you decorate or go trick-or-treating for Halloween? I don’t usually do too much decorating, just a few pumpkins, but this year Lauren helped me set up an Ofrenda, similar to the one from the Disney movie Coco.

We have a 99 Cent Store in our town and we found so much Day of the Dead stuff there! Now, ours is not as elaborate as Disney’s (!), but I think it turned out pretty good!

I don’t know much about this celebration, but the little bit I have learned is so interesting. I think the whole idea behind it is so cool. Remembering our relatives and our past is so important to who we are. I hope to learn more each year.

I found pictures of the Coco characters online and printed them out to place on our Ofrenda.

I love the little spirit animal! A dog, of course!

Lots of candles and flowers fill it all in.

I love the designs on the jar candles! So perfect!

Do you recognize any of the characters! Mama Coco is at the bottom of the picture.
