“This vibrant, Dia De Las Muertos photo shoot was a collaboration inspired by the Spanish village of Aldea at Tlaquepaque in Phoenix Arizona. The team used bold florals, fruit, candles and layered linens to create a spectacular tablescape. Skulls, smokey cocktails, churro cart, sweets table and pan dulce added elements of the traditional Spanish celebration. Our couple was true to the Aztec customs with the calavera face painting, red dress, lace veil, and most importantly, an alter to honor the dead.” –Lux Wedding Studio

I love fall weddings, they are so cozy and romantic and they give you that warm feeling in your bones because the holidays are on their way. Embrace your unique fall event with this fun and simple DIY Faux Pumpkin Card Box idea! In less than 30 minutes, a faux white pumpkin can be transformed into a chic way to collect your wedding cards. After your event is over, carve or break open the foam shell to reveal special sentiments from your loved ones. If you like this idea, you’ll love our faux pumpkin guest book too!
