Feathers & Fun Christmas Party

I got to help throw a Christmas party for my two beautiful nieces, Madi & Tatum, this weekend and had a blast. I mentioned this event a few weeks ago when I gave you all a sneak peak at my custom pennant banner. Now for the full reveal....hope you enjoy!

This was an evening event for mostly 2nd graders, so we added pizza as the main course and had lots of fun snacks and sweets to go along with it.
I loved using the seafoam green as my base color, along with red, rather than the traditional Christmas green. I thought it was just enough away from the norm to be fun and youthful, but still classy and clean!  

I saw the idea for these adorable North Pole cupcakes over on Kara's party ideas (which, btw, is an incredible website for event ideas!).

"Elf Juice" & custom labels that I designed.

"Melted Snow"...water bottle wraps are embellished with the wrapping paper that was my main decor inspiration.

"Santa's Workshop Toys"...iced animal crackers inside mini snack containers from Oriental Trading Company. These are also embellished with cutouts from the wrapping paper.

Details, details, details...

I used lots of wrapped boxes for trays and height on the food table - a very simple, very cheap way to get that coordinated look.

I'm not a baker or a candy maker, but these snowflake lollipops were easy enough and added a nice touch to the overall look of the table.

We had lots of fun activities planned for the girls. They all had a half dozen cookies to decorate, a Christmas necklace to make, ornaments to paint, plus crayons and music to keep them entertained. No bored children at this Christmas party!

Love how the feather Christmas trees turned out! I bought cones at Michaels and feather boas during Halloween season at the Dollar Store and was able to make this great centerpieces for just a couple dollars!

Gifts bags with activities and treats for the girls to enjoy now or later...

Merry Christmas!
