Now here’s a fun Halloween party theme! Despite what its haunting name might suggest, the Day of the Dead is a celebration of life. It’s a three-day affair that Mexicans use to honour and remember their deceased loved ones, to let them know they are not forgotten and that their family and friends still care about them. The day is celebrated with private altars, beautiful sugar skulls, marigolds and the favourite foods and drinks of the departed, which are offered to them as gifts.

Throw your own Day of the Dead inspired Halloween party with sugar skulls and floral designs for decoration in colour palettes of bright orange, purple, red, yellow, green, blues and pinks. We’ve gathered some of our fave party wares to inspire you to throw the brightest Day of the Dead party! Check out the full round up below.
