Whenever I throw a party Oriental Trading is always my go-to place to shop. I walked into a party place last year and the prices were overwhelming. I thought there was no way I could give my kids the birthday party they deserved and then I discovered Oriental Tradings awesome prices. I thought that the quality wouldn’t be great since the prices were so low, but everything was perfect.
I like to keep things simple at Christmas time only doing appetizers. I want to enjoy my family and help the kids with their new toys. I don’t want to be in the kitchen stressing out. I used this train as a center piece. Isn’t the snowman just adorable?
These guys are actually from my Holiday decor outside, but I brought them in because they just looked so cute on the table! Sometimes I even bring them in for my Holiday Gift Guide photo shoots because they are just sooooo freaking cute!
The plates were adorable and matched the tablecloth perfectly! I am not a gold fan, but I really liked the way everything went together.
We had a fun pre-Christmas party with the family and we plan on doing appetizers again on Christmas Day. We are thinking cocktail shrimp, gluten free pinwheels, cheese, meats, gluten free desserts and I am thinking of doing like a candy display with Rolo’s etc. They are gluten free and I love them! We were able to get everything we needed for our party for under $100.00!
I got the cups because I thought it would be fun to let people take the cup they drank out of home with them. One less dish for me to clean and a cool cup for friends and family to use at home!
What do you like to do for the holidays? Do you plan or big meal or do you do something small like we do?
