How to Make a Day of the Dead Altar

Six days to go!  Yikes, there is so much to do!  Have you tackled the Altar/Ofrendas?  I found this video on how to build the Dia de los Muertos Altar.  It's straight forward and has the main elements.  The one thing missing is lots of color.  I do mean LOTS of COLOR.   Make sure you incorporate that into your altar.

Now, I got to run to the Farmer's Market to get lots of marygold flowers, then off to find some good tequila for my dad Antonio (RIP) and some flan for my sister Gloria Irene (RIP) and my ofrendas will be ready.  I leave you with some photos I took during my recent visit to Old Town San Diego.
