Each year Show Stoppers decorates Sedona’s beloved Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village for Dia de los Muertos, which traditionally happens on November 1st. The event has become a huge draw to Sedona as tourists and locals alike flock to Tlaquepaque to honor their deceased loved ones and enjoy food , entertainment and shopping in the beautifully decorated stores and patios. Here are a few great images by Katrina Wallace, SedonaBride.com, that show the festivities. Show Stoppers creates wonderful themed props and decorations for events both large and small and in just about every taste and style.
The Patio Del Norte fountain is decorated with Mexican squash, gourds, cactus pads, persimmon branches, cholla cactus wood and fresh flowers.
Hundreds of candles and paper mache` Catrinas decorate the edge of the fountain. Colorful murals surround the area.
Day of the Dead alters honor the deceased friends, relatives or pets by displaying their favorite food, toys or treats. Photos of loved ones are also displayed with the belief that their loved ones come back to visit on this special night. It is a great holiday celebration and is gaining popularity all across the country.
Playful Catrinas are becoming very collectable and are available at Show Stoppers’ gift store, Nectar Design, located in Suite A.114 in Tlaquepaque.
