Trim the Tree/Gingerbread Decorating


I am having so much fun this holiday season! My Bailey girl is 4 1/2 now and totally into all the Christmas season festivities. Today we had Bailey's ballet class friends over for a Trim the Tree/Gingerbread decorating party! (I obviously couldn't decide on which activity to do so we did both!) lol We had so much fun!! The girls sipped on hot chocolate out of fancy china while they worked on their crafts. Such big girls!!! Here are a few pics from today's festivities.




First up, the hot chocolate bar...complete w/ marshmallws, sprinkles, reeses peanut butter bits, candy cane stirrers, and snowman cake pops!



These little bowls are made from chocolate!! I got the idea from this site. Check it out!! Lots of clever party ideas!











Bailey checking out the dessert table...














Time for hot chocolate!!!







First activity, decorating Christmas trees! Each girl was given her own personal tree to trim, a basket full of mini ornaments and a popcicle stick star to decorate. The girls had a "tea party" with their hot chocolate while they trimmed their tree.
































Next up, decorating gingerbread houses! I made these out of graham crackers. Easy, cheap and the possibilities for these little decorators were endless!!! Even my little Liv got in on the action!! Mama was so proud....












































Bailey's house. :)

















All the houses...these are seriously the cutest things I have ever seen! LOVE how well they all did!!!!






My team of decorators....

  1. This is such an amazing kiddie party idea for the holidays! Not only are all the details adorable (especially love those snowman pops), but making it a hands-on occasion is wonderful. The little decorators were clearly inspired!
