When it comes to holidays and decorating there is nothing I love more than a theme which is why I have teamed up with At Home stores to use their products to make an Dia de los Muertos Day of the Dead Halloween porch display. I spent more time than I should admit perusing up and down the aisles of At Home gathering inspiration. I have to admit my Halloween decorations have always been more of the fall pumpkin theme but the challenge to spook it up with skeletons was intriguing. Dia de los Muertos is the celebration of the dead where altars are set to welcome them home. The skeletons, flowers and colorful sugar skulls were the winning inspiration and I loved bringing the Day of the Dead theme to my front door.
These little cuties were what inspired the whole theme. They are $4.99 each and I knew that I had to showcase them in a prominent way. I walked down the aisle and found a black tinsel wreath for $10.99 and just added artificial flowers and put them together for my favorite centerpiece of my decorations!
You can’t get though the Halloween aisles of the At Home without seeing their amazing skeletons. Life size, miniatures, sugar skulls, animals…you name it there was a skeleton for it! So, of course they had to come home with me too! Adding a few flowers and gave them the look I was going for and I love how hauntingly beautiful they are!
Of course no Dia de los Muertos decor is without flowers and I loved using the flowers that I found from At Home in all of the elements that I decorated. But, it needed a few more and it was a little DIY tissue papers to the rescue. Big, colorful flowers were attached to the brick and completed our Day of the Dead decorations. The black cloth on the light was a table runner and the charms on the pumpkin were also from At home. The little touches go a long way and I was thrilled to be able to bring the look together with them!
The whole theme felt spooky yet bright and welcoming just as this celebration should be! An altar that I am sure all dead would be happy to come home too!
