We decided to go with “The Book of Life” theme which was about The day of the Dead or El Dia De Los Muertos. I feel this theme was very close to my heart not only because we celebrated Aubrey’s 7th birthday but I was able to incorporate a piece of our families culture and that made it even more special. We still have most of our family back home in Mexico so to feel like we were able to recreate a day that is well known from our roots and culture was amazing.

Cake: @kellyssweettreats, Skull couple I found at Homegoods the sombrero I bought at the Mercadito in LA and the flower crown I made on my own from Dollar Tree flowers, I bouquet that included about four, fiver flowers were only one dollar! The skull table runners are from Target.
Cupcakes @kats_sweets, seriously the best cupcakes I’ve ever had!
Their outfits were both purchased at El Mercadito in LA. Everything was surprisingly super cheap and really good material.
