Something Splendid is now over at http://somethingsplendidblog.com. Come check us out over there for even more great ideas.
As you can probably tell, we love parties over here. It would not be Christmas without an ugly sweater party. Parties with a theme always seem to go smoother than those without and this was no exception. We decided to keep it super simple with cupcakes, decorate your own sugar cookies and a hot chocolate bar. The hot chocolate bar was a huge hit and will definitely be making an appearance again. We had Christmas music playing throughout the night and everyone had a great night spending time with each other.
The cupcakes were a basic white box mix which we frosted with can frosting from Michaels (normally we are all about the homemade but with finals, that was the farthest thing from our minds).
I saw a cookie tree on another blog last year and could not stop obsessing over it. I had to re create it. I was so happy with it. For the hot chocolate bar we had homemade marshmallows and peppermint whip cream. Both were a huge hit and really set it over the top.
For additional activities at your holiday party you could have a white elephant gift exchange, or you could play minute to win it games-christmas style, or even brave the cold and have a snowball fight. The possibilities are endless.
