Most of the events that Flowers and Events work on are centered around celebrating love and acknowledging major milestones in life. Naturally, we love joyous occasions like weddings and birthday parties, but another favorite celebration is The Day of the Dead. On this day, Día de los Muertos, we remember - and celebrate - the departed. Keep reading for some ideas for designing a memorable Day of The Dead Celebration!
In Mexico, Día de los Muertos, or “The Day of the Dead,” is celebrated on November 1st and 2nd. Despite its name, The Day of the Dead is regarded as a festive and happy occasion, not a sad one. This multi-day holiday focuses on remembering and praying for family members who have passed away. Traditionally, family and friends visit the graves of their loved ones and leave their favorite foods as an offering. It’s also common to build floral-filled altars at home called “ofrendas” with the favorite foods and beverages of the departed. It’s a day for celebrants to gather and remember funny events and share humorous anecdotes about those who have passed away.
Over the years Flowers and Events Los Cabos has worked on many events for this particular celebration and it’s always great fun coming up with new, colorful designs ideas and decor elements for this joyous occasion.
