You can use the fry boxes for lots of different Day of the Dead party foods (I chose  Chicken Nuggets and  Mini Corn Dogs). The sugar skull and flower printables can be used to decorate straws or you can glue them to the end of toothpicks or even as Day of the Dead cupcake toppers.

Day of the Dead Party Ideas and Decorations

In contrast to Halloween the Day of the Dead is a day to celebrate those family members who are no longer with us; it’s really a celebration of life. That is why Day of the Dead celebrations and decorations are filled with bright and lively colors.  Besides the printables which you can download HERE I also used a Day of the Dead mini piñata garland I had made a few days ago.

Day of the Dead Party Food Ideas

When it comes to food you don’t have to spend all day in the kitchen to prepare party appetizers that everyone will love. I chose two of my favorite products from Chicken Nuggets and Mini Corn Dogs and created a delicious spicy mango dipping sauce to go along with them.
