Merry and Bright Rustic Chic Kids Christmas Party
When I think of how to make the holiday season special for a kid, I envision bright joyful moments with a little bit of sugar! To celebrate the holiday season we had a cousin Christmas party. The cousins wore their Christmas Pajamas and had a cozy evening full of laughs, sweets, and watching a Christmas movie. The colorway included pink, mint green, bright yellow, and white.
When planning the seating for the party I thought outside of the box and transformed our play train table. I cleared it off and moved it into our living room, where the kids could cozy up on the shag rug with pillows. I used a yard and a half of ombre pink sequin fabric as a table cloth. Each place setting had an adorable reindeer plate, cheery holiday motif napkin, chic cutlery, DIY coaster and an ombre pink cup. The centerpiece included DIY yarn ombre trees, DIY star banner and a DIY merry wood sign. Each guest received a unique handmade pom pom ornament.
The backdrop included a set of three Christmas trees with white lights, an antique racer sled, tassel garland by Rusty Chic Decor and bright balloon garland from Oh How Charming. A bamboo table was the hit of the party with salty and sweet treats! The menu included popcorn in fun coral striped containers. Salted caramel cupcakes with adorable cupcake toppers by Once upon a party design. A candy board with gummy candy, macaroons, cookies and snowman marshmallows. Other details included a pink painted dried palm leaf, pink pampas grass, and fresh evergreen!
Yarn Trees: I made ombre yarn Holiday Trees by hot gluing yarn and wrapping a Styrofoam cone. At the top I added a pom pom. Tutorial is on @rustychicdecor Instagram.
Handmade Pom Pom Ornament: I used a clover pom pom maker to create pom poms and to turn them into an ornament favor I added glittery gold ribbon.
Coasters: I spray painted wood holiday cut outs from Michaels craft store. I used bright yellow for the ornament, mint green for the Christmas tree, and gold for the gingerbread cookie.
Wood Signs: I spray painted a Merry Sign in an ombre affect, and believe for the dessert table.
Star Banner: I took apart a star banner from the Target dollar spot, spray painted the stars in bright colors and re-strung them on gold cord.
Dried Palm: I spray painted a dried palm leaf from Afloral for a bright pop of color on the dessert table.
