Getting ready to celebrate Dia De Los Muertos? Amols’ is your one stop shop for lavishing your ofrendas beautifully and authentically.
During Day of the Dead, it is your families’ distinct honor to celebrate your loved ones that have passed! Most people associate this holiday with mourning for the dead, however, it is the exact opposite. The Day of the Dead holiday is a true celebration of life. In ancient times it was thought to be disrespectful to mourn for those who have passed away, which led to this annual celebration of life.
One of the most iconic traditions of the holiday is the creation of unique and welcoming ofrendas. At Amols’ we have many authentic ways to design your family altars as well as your homes or offices! Our favorite items for the ofrendas are the Tea Light Sugar Skull Holders for pictures or candles. These items are beautifully made and extremely festive! We recommend these hand painted sugar skulls to help keep your altar space from being too crowded while they hold your pictures or your candles.
Marigolds are a must for Dia De los Muertos as well! It is said that the scent from the flowers will draw the deceased back to their homes. Our classic paper marigolds provide an authentic and lasting look for decorating your loved ones’ grave and your ofrenda. The Marigolds come in many colors to create a vibrant display of love to welcome home the deceased.
Our favorite decorations for Dia de los Muertos would have to be the Paper Mache Skeletons and mini Catrina’s. These items are handcrafted in Mexico! The beautiful dolls create a perfect authentic look for this holiday. We have many to choose from and each one unique in their own way. In addition to the dolls, our paper mache skulls are a wonderful choice for decorating as well.
Most people dress up for this occasion and we have many masks to help design your wardrobe for the celebration. These day of the dead masks encourage you to reunite with your loved ones while looking beautiful as you do it. If you’re in a profession where face painting is not an option, the masks allow you to celebrate and still be professional! Some people’s skin does not react well with the paint either, making the masks a perfect alternative.
