St. Patrick’s Day is Monday and so Pear Tree decided to have a St. Patrick’s Day themed treat day in the office. All the food was delicious and it was fun coming up with the ideas.
Kelsey made the rainbow fruit tray with a cloud (fruit dip) and a pot of gold coins (Rolos) at the end of it. Colorful, fun and tasty!
On the left is the always-necessary-at-any-treat-day guacamole from David and on the right is a green salad with bacon bits from Christy. Perfecto.
Looking for kids Christmas party ideas that don’t involve Santa or gifts? Here are three party ideas that will keep little hands busy.
Cookie baking or decorating party
Christmas baking is a lot more fun when you have a lot of hands helping. Why not invite your kids’ friends over for a party to help? They can help decorate gingerbread houses or cut-out cookies that you bake ahead of time, such as gingerbread or sugar cookie cut-outs. Or you can have a cookie baking party and let the kids help you make any kind of cookies you like!
Our Gleeful Gingerbread Kids Christmas Party Invitations or our Gingerbread Lane Kids Christmas Party Invitations are the perfect choice for this Christmas party idea!
Before the party begins, have all of your ingredients whether for baking or decorating ready to go, and set up several stations with supplies so the kids each have a place to work. Things may get messy when the kids dig in to help, but that’s half the fun. And, of course, each guest gets to take home a sampling of cookies.
We have put together 3 of our most popular Christmas party ideas. These themes can be really fun for both guests and hosts. Let us know which is your favorite or what type of themed party you are hosting this year by commenting below.
1. Ugly Sweater Christmas Party Idea
Use our Particular Pattern Ugly Sweater Christmas Party Invitations to set the stage for this party. Overuse the colors red and green and make sure you have lots of old patterns and fabric throughout the party to reinforce that ugly sweater theme. This is a delightfully tacky party that everyone enjoys. You can even have a contest for people to vote on the ugliest sweater. See more ugly sweater Christmas party ideas on our Pinterest board.
