Party Details: We wanted to keep the budget very small (less than $25) and use items we already had. I had lots of red and brown fabric left over from my Sock Monkey party so we decided on a red, brown and white color scheme and incorporated polka dots and stripes. Elayne's husband made the stand from an old wooden fence they had torn down and she painted the sign. She also made the rag garland we hung from the front of the stand to add a pop of color.
I bought the little mugs and saucers on super clearance during the summer ($2 for a set of 4) and knew this event was the perfect occasion to bring them out. I tied mini candy canes to them with brown twine and this was probably one of my favorite little details. I used ice cream sundae cups to display Hot Cocoa toppings and made tags to match. I added a few chocolate covered marshmallows, some cookies, whip cream and of course hot chocolate and we were ready for a party!
