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.
Does your family set up an Ofrenda? I would love to know about it! Thank you so much for stopping by today! Remember, on Friday, starts Christmas!!
