Colorful Kid’s Christmas Party


I'm due with a little girl in a couple weeks and couldn't be more excited! Even though she will be too tiny to remember this Christmas, I've been dreaming up ideas for a girly Christmas party for months. Luckily some of my close friends have little girls old enough to enjoy the fun and sweets! 

I knew I wanted to stick with a feminine pastel color palette and mix traditional holiday elements with unexpected details. Instead of a traditional Christmas tree, I went with a space saving option using a pegboard and magnolia leaves. You can see our tutorial here

One of my favorite details on the table are the tinsel pom napkin rings. I glued gift toppers to thin ribbon and tied around each napkin. Such an easy but whimsical finishing touch! I snagged the pink ombre trees in the dollar section of Target then spray painted some of them teal with a similar ombre pattern. I know a lot of people choose to bleach and then dye the bottle brush trees but this way is much faster! The paper maché houses were painted in coordinating colors then we added in some fresh blooms and ornaments to finish off the table runner. 

The dessert tree was a big hit with the girls! I took a white styrofoam cone and covered it in donuts, macarons, donut holes, white chocolate truffles, mini cinnamon rolls and sugar cookies by Miss J's Bakeshop. I used tooth picks to secure all the sweets besides the sugar cookies. For those I melted white chocolate and smeared it on the back of each cookie like glue. Then Phuong added in some fresh flowers for the finishing touch! Miss J's also made the cute little house cookies hanging off of the mugs of pink hot chocolate. If you're looking to recreate at home, use this pink hot chocolate recipe! We topped each mug off with a handful of marshmallows and dusted with edible gold glitter.
