This Christmas Wish collection was inspired by the idea of families coming together for the holidays (no matter how far away you are!). Though it has modern patterned fabrics, it still has the feel of a classic Christmas from its' color scheme. A traditional red and white with a pop of lime green! Lots of little DIY projects helped create this over all look like this berrie "wish" backdrop. Wood pieces found at Michaels in the clearance section were spray painted, glued together, and tied the ribbon to a suspended berrie branch.  Simple sweets for after dinner adorn the buffet. A yummy cake, cupcakes, cookies, and peppermint cake pops are easy for hands to grab. Paper embellisments from our printable Christmas collection add a little fun and cohesivness with all the decorations. Cake pops have flags, cupcakes have custom wrappers and flags as well as fun fondant decorations, and the cookies and cake have fondant berries to tie it all together. The show stopper are these edible glitter ornaments by Brittany of Edible Details for on top of the cake. Hand made candy wreaths adorn our potted rosemary trees. Just get a styrofoam wreath and hot glue candies in coordinating colors to the wreath. When done, hot glue ribbon around rim to finish of the edge. These stay put in the pots by using floral picks.

The table is set in all white with gold silverware and goblets with a gold filigree design. Each guest has a name card at his/her place and a little surprise gift from the host! Hand made moss wreaths were tied to the backs of each chair. Hot glue moss {from the floral department at your local crafts store) to a styrofoam wreath then make a paper fan (using coordinating patterned paper). Hot glue fan to the center of the moss wreath and finish off by gluing a party circle dot (from our printable collection) to the center.

The little ones even get their own special table set with easy to print placemats. Print and have laminated! Super simple and can use again and again. Even the little ones get a sweet surprise when they sit down to dinner in these cute little boxes. Extra patterned paper was printed off and cut to size, wrapped around the box, and used double sided tape to secure. Twine and a tag complete it.

Holiday parties simply MUST have a hot cocoa station. This one had peppermint cocoa and homemade marshmallows on peppermint sticks. Yum!

And of course last but not least an adult drink cart with a signature holiday drink- peppermint martinis. Not for the weak of heart! These are set on our newest product to launch-custom lucite trays with interchangeable inserts. These of course had a custom insert to match our holiday collection. We rimmed the glasses with crushed peppermints and then added one to the drink. Made a pretty color change after a few minutes.
