With two young children who are excited about getting all dressed up...who am I kidding...and a mummy who is excited about dressing them up and embracing the event, this will be the first year we've actually decorated for Halloween, and I couldn't be more excited!
When it came to a 'theme' I didn't want to scare the living daylights out of them or their friends, so a Day of the Dead theme seems perfect because of its vibrancy and lack of 'blood and gore', do you agree? It can be quite a chic theme too and I thought well, why can't Halloween be vibrant and chic?
The history of Day of the Dead is a holiday celebrated in Mexico which prays for and remembers family and friends who have died, and helps support their spiritual journey. I like this concept, because rather than focussing on ghosts and ghouls that come back to haunt you, this is more of a celebration which feels more comfortable when there are young children involved.
By introducing lots of bright orange and purple plus flowers, this definitely feels like a celebration.
