Day of the Dead accessories available online is off the charts! There's no need to make it fancy or feel overwhelmed, but having friends over can be low-stress and lots of fun - just pour some margaritas and get some Mexican beers like Corona or Modello, serve up some Mexican finger foods and away you go! Since it falls on the Sunday after Halloween this year, I love the idea of hosting a post-Halloween party Day of the Dead brunch with good food, great friends and lots of storytelling about the antics the night before.
Once you have your party supplies sorted, it's time to start thinking about food & drinks! Luckily, I've got you covered with this list of fabulous recipes that can work for a brunch, dinner party or cocktail party. Now I know that some of the items on this list aren't at all Mexican food and none of them are authentic, but that's okay. If the food is good, the atmosphere is relaxed and the party is fun, I doubt that many people will criticize the authenticity of your menu choices. For me, it's all about finding recipes that are fun to make, delicious and easy to enjoy.
