The Day of the Dead is Mexican holiday in which family members gather to pray for and celebrate the lives of lost ones. There are similar holidays throughout the world and the rich colors and vibrancy of this holiday are such a special way to honor loved ones that are no longer with us.

Presentation is everything, and even something as simple as a bottle of orange pop can make for a fun and festive treat.
So if you’re looking for a last minute party extra or a something for those special neighbors/cousins/friends that will be ringing your doorbell today, these are perfect.
I used baker’s twine to tie a paper straw, drink stirrer, and party flag to each bottle.
The vintage style glass bottles of orange Fanta can be found in the Hispanic section of the grocery store, the straws and stirrers can be found at craft or party stores. The flags are made by hot gluing a bit of patterned paper to a candy stick. So easy and so quick!
Revel in the golden light of the Fall season’s sunsets. Wrapped in knits and embroidered textiles, the golden hour has never been this lovely.
