Dia De Los Muertos with Gothic Tea Society

Dia de los Muertos may seem like a grim day to the uninitiated, but in many Mexican communities, it is a day to honor and celebrate those who have passed on.

On a decor front, the holiday involves elaborately decorated skulls, sweets, marigolds and other flamboyant offerings.

Gothic Tea Society is a delightful blog dedicated to the obscure and macabre by photographer Wendy. Her shop on Etsy celebrates this holiday with a small collection of handpainted skulls and memento mori pieces that incorporate some of her images.
