Peppermint Perfection

Last week we had our annual girls night cocoa party. This year's theme was Peppermint Perfection, and was it ever. The best part about these parties is that I get to do them with the two most amazing girls I know. We had so much fun prepping and getting things together and it was all worth the hard work to see the end result.

The invitation we made to look like a peppermint with a peppermint treat inside.

This is the table scape

We had some really yummy food this year. White chocolate covered pretzels with red and white nonpareils, chips and homemade salsa, cheese ball and crackers, sugar cookies, dipped Milano's, and of course all the toppings for our hot cocoa.

I used a lot of my decorations off my tree at home for this party, it was fun to put them to another use.

For our favors this year, though you can't see exactly what they are, we did milk and white chocolate on a stick that you could stir into hot milk for a yummy treat.

I has so much fun designing the invites and tags for the party. Thanks again Dacia and Lynne for being my partners in crime. Love ya!

*all pictures taken by Dacia (she did a great job) Lynne took some too but I'm waiting to see those so they may be added later.

Tissue trees

I FINALLY finished these trees. My good friend Dacia shared a link on the how to to make them and after seeing her finished trees I really wanted to give them a try. Do not attempt these if you are not fully commited. They take a lot of time to do, BUT they are SO worth it. 
So there you have my one holiday craft, pretty cute if I do say so myself.

Crate & Barrel

Half Baked is doing a great giveaway for a $100 gift certificate to Crate & Barrel and I'm hopin' they pick me. Sadly I have to say I would use this for myself and not to get gifts for others. But on the plus side the things I get will be used to throw parties for others : )
