Dia de los Muertos Altars ~ Part II

Dia de los Muertos Altar #1

Dia de los Muertos Altar #2
As we continue with our Tour of the Dia de los Muertos Altars at the Desert Botanical Gardens Exhibit, I'm sharing two of the Altar Displays in today's Post.   Altar #1 pays Homage to the Blessed Mother and had Beautiful bold colored crepe paper Flowers and a side table of Offerings. Simple yet poignant.

Altar #2 pays Homage to deceased Loved Ones, both Human and Fur Babies who have passed from Time into Eternity.  Colorful Satin Ribbons were provided for Guests to write the names of those they wished to Honor and drape on the Altar.  There were the Lovely Traditional Sugar Skulls, Vivid & Bright Paper Flowers, Zarapes & Dia de los Muertos Art & Figurines decorating the Altar, along with Photographs of those being Honored & Notes from Loved Ones.

Blessings from the Arizona Desert... Dawn... The Bohemian
