First of all, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all.
Second of all, GO SEE COCO! It’s beautiful in every possible way; visually, emotionally, culturally. And even though Day of the Dead has come and gone, we wanted to see how we could incorporate Coco, and Día de los Muertos, into our Christmas decorations. After all, how better to celebrate Christmas than to honor and remember our loved ones.
We begin with the tree. One of the most stunning things about Coco is the use of color; purples and pinks and oranges. Start your decorating off right by choosing a bright base for your decorations. And don’t forget the tree skirt. We found a beautiful embroidered one made in Hidalgo, Mexico.
Once you have your colorful tree, it’s time for garlands. Papel Picado straight out of the opening sequences, and marigolds to guide your loved ones to you.
Now that you’ve got your tree and garlands up, it’s time for ornaments; Alebrijes, guitars, sugar skulls, and skeleton musicians
And if you need more Coco, and Dante, and Miguel on your tree check out these Disney ornaments.
Top off your tree with a punched tin star
And the most important part of Día de los Muertos, and of Coco, are the family photos for the ofrendas. How better to remember your family, than by hanging their photos from the Christmas tree.
