It's not even Halloween yet and I am already planning out the Christmas festivities!
I know, I am such a nerd. I still have two months! But
my head is in Christmas already and I can't seem to get it to switch
back to Halloween. Which is a bit of a problem, since I haven't yet
finished our Halloween Costumes. I finished the party, that's good
enough, right?At least the boys have their costumes. Our
little Captain America and Iron Man are adorable! The hubby and I are
going to be Hawkeye and Black Widow, that is if I can get my head in the
So, back to Christmas! I really want to
host a Christmas cookie exchange this year! I'm thinking either as a
Girl's Night, or as a play date type thing with the kiddos. Leaning more
to the Girl's night, as I could really use a night off from the boys! I
know for sure there will be packaging supplies to wrap up the exchanged
goodies, a hot chocolate bar, and I want to make little cookie recipe
books with everyone's recipes as a take home favor.
I am in love with this invite (Right) from Lara at Announced Design. If you don't know already I am OBSESSED with Polka Dots. Also, I love the color turquoise. This just speaks to me! Thinking I might use this as inspiration for the party colors. I have been wanting to redo my kitchen decor in these colors anyway, so I would be able to make items do double duty as party decor and then keep some of them up year round! Win win, right? I think so!
The idea for the hot chocolate bar came from a fabulous shower featured on Hostess with the Mostess. If you have never heard of that blog, you are certainly missing out! It is a fantastic resource for party planning! Go check it out, NOW! you will not be disappointed in the least! It's the Holy Grail of party planning, and if I ever have a party make it on her blog I think I would die.
So, that's all I have for now. I am working on writing up some past parties and crafts I have done so I can get some content on here. Also working on a blog design, but that is much slower coming. When it comes to design I tend to obsess and have to get it perfect. You can be 100% certain that it will include polka dots though. :)
