Muse Board: Día de los Muertos Fiesta

Día de los Muertos

Row 1- spooky skeleton invitation- a gorgeous presentation of pannacotta with figs and berries- prickly pear margaritas or ghoul's punch are two bright and cheerful drinks guests are sure to love

Row 2
- while
candied pumpkin is a favorite treat for this holiday, consider some papel picado inspired pumpkin pie- make your own faux papel picado by stenciling or copying designs on to brightly coloured papers like this banner available from Bad Baby Quilts- dress (and protect) your table in festive floral oilcloth- delicious Chicken-Fajita Tostadas from Martha are sure to please

Row 3- serve these chic chocolate calaveras and Aztec Elixir couture cocoa from Vosges- I love these painted pumpkins with just a touch of glitter and, of course, these glittered bones- a tropical fruit salsa makes a quick and colourful accompaniment

Row 4
- be sure to include
brilliant bunches of marigolds in your party decor- a colourful thank you note after the celebration will serve as a reminder of your festive fiesta- send them off with sweet sugar skulls when your ghoulish guests depart
