Bringing the Book of Life Party to Life

Here are the photo galleries that show the work that went into the crafting Anya’s Book of Life Party.

Hit play on the video for a song and check out the images!


Manolo’s Guitar

Music played such a huge part in this movie, we wanted to feature Manolo’s guitar (and his less-often-seen ukulele).

    This is brilliant! Love the cake and I will be stealing this idea for a future birthday for my daughter. Because as luck would have it, she was born on the day of the dead (yay!), seems to me this should be her recurring theme.

      Oh, yay! Thanks so much, we had the best time ever putting it together. And that sounds awesome for your daughter! Mine was born a week before Halloween, so we always do something remotely creepy (or make something non-creepy into something a little more creepy) … Nightmare Before Christmas, Harry Potter, even Maleficent (they’re all on the site if you search for’em!). Thanks so much, and be sure to share your pics when you have your daughter’s big day! 🙂
