Dia de los Muertos Table

Welcome to my Day of the dead table.
 The Day of the Dead (Spanish: Día de Muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, in particular the Central and South regions, and by people of Mexican heritage elsewhere

I am using this colorful purple tablecloth with the skulls chargers.  I found them at Michaels.  Dollar Tree black plates sit on top with the added sugar skulls salad plates.

I draped some black gauzy fabric on the chandy to make it a little creepy.

The napkins  match with two different designs.

The sweet little sugar skull candle sit nicely on a bed of purple sand enclosed in a mini cloche.

Purple goblets go with the color theme. I also alternated the flatware with purple and black.

Halloween is coming.  I have some dinner parties planned.
