Don’t you love Christmas parties??
I mean – regular parties are pretty awesome. But Christmas parties are the best. Cuter decorations, cuter food, cuter outfits, you name it.
I’ve posted before about the Pinterest Party group I’m a part of - we trade off hosting the party every time.
Well this month it was my turn – I got to host the Christmas party! Woot!
We usually have lots of food and time to craft – everyone brings a treat to share.
And something super fun this time – I used adorable Christmas printables from the Hostess with the Mostess to decorate the treat table with!
I made Triple Chocolate Peppermint Brownies – from A Pumpkin and a Princess’ recipe. YUMMMM. I decorated them with these sweet little treat flags from the set. They were super easy – you just print and cut them out – then fold them in half. We used double-sided tape to stick them around toothpicks.
I will confess that I love printables like this. When I’m doing all the planning and cleaning and stressing and everything else that goes into party prep – it’s soooo nice to be able to print out sweet little things for the party - it’s definitely one less thing to worry about!
The set came with some little tent cards – for labeling all the goodies on the table.
(Seriously – how cute is that little Santa!!)
I also used the full paper designs to make plate liners. I just printed them out and cut them in a circle for the center of the plate!
We always do crafting – as well as eating. :) This time we made gorgeous Glittered Pear ornaments – also by A Pumpkin and a Princess (she’s awesome!!)
We had a few colors of glitter and ribbon so everyone’s pear looked a little different. Here’s mine:
Shocking that mine is turquoise and pink right?
And here’s a little shot of our group in action. We had a blast!
