Every year I host a Christmas party. Sometimes it's just for the kids and sometimes it for the adults as well. This year it was a joint party featuring lots of sweet treats & good eats. Appetizers & wine in the kitchen, sweets & cookie decorating in the living room. Outside I set up a hot cocoa bar and made room for everyone to gather around the fire pit for s'mores.
I sent out my adorable invitations which included an insert asking guests to bring one of their Christmas cards. I set up a Christmas Card Exchange table where guests could take one of my beautiful cards and then pin one of theirs to a star on the wall made out of ribbon. Such a cute and simple idea to showcase you cards all season long.
Last years party I set up a cookie decorating table for kids to decorate cookies for Santa. They loved it! So I kept with the same idea this year. Each chair had their own plate of cookies with a festive Christmas apron and a selection of icings and toppings to decorate with.
I set up a dessert table inside as well with some delicious North Pole cupcakes. The cute roper signs are from Swish Printables. Some of the other sweet treats included were sugar cookies, Santa hat oreos' and snowflake pretzels.
After mingling inside you could head to the back yard where there was a hot cocoa & s'mores bar set up. I moved the fire pit into the yard and put out wood stumps for the kids and a recent DIY project my husband finished of turning an old headboard into a new bench. A couple comfy pillows and a warm cozy blanket and it was the perfect setting to roast marshmallows.
