Dress up like Catrina!

You can be the greatest work of art!

We are sure that when you see a picture of the Day of the Dead Catrina you can’t deny that she is a very fashionable lady.  Is she all dressed up to go out to a fancy party? Or, is she meeting her equally stylish friends somewhere elegant for tea and delicious pan dulce?  Or maybe she is going to a gallery opening somewhere near White Rock Lake?

Perhaps you would like to look like Catrina when you come to our reception.  A fancy dress, some Day of the Dead makeup, and a strong desire to have fun is all you need. 

What a great sight it will be: Art on the walls and pedestals and Catrinas walking around, looking beautiful!
