Our Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebration on Tuesday was a way to christen the new office, tilt back a few local bevies and immerse ourselves in a Mexican tradition of honouring the dead that looked wicked cool from the outside.
You can see all our photos from the event on our Facebook page.
We wanted to do it right and respectfully, so we brought in some help:
MEXICAN CUISINE/SUGAR SKULLS : The amazing Adriana’s The Whole Enchilada
HAIR : Christine Greive of Brun Body & Hair Bar took the girls to a new level.
FLORAL ARRANGEMENT AND ALTAR : Former Copeland employee and long-time supporter and friend Michael Marshall of Grower Direct.
BEER : Moon Under Water brew pub. Such tasty beer and they gave it to us without labels so we could slap on our own.
Thank you to our friends who came to drink, eat, gab and help us test-drive the new digs for party-worthiness.
I want to also acknowledge my daughter Lola who was an intrepid little hostess and just about fainted when she got to meet our Managing Director for a Day winner Grace Campbell!
Muchos gracias a todos y feliz Dia de los Muertos!
