Hot Chocolate Bar
I love the idea of a hot cocoa station at a party. And, when it's a party for a couple hundred people, it's a fun activity.
I made a warm wishes bunting from muslin, black felt, and quilt binding. The black felt was in a sticky-backed sheet so it came together pretty quick.
Etsy. The labels are from Ribbonwood Cottage but I played with them in Picmonkey.
We stacked vintage books to look like a Christmas tree and then added a little gold star for our centerpiece.
Each table had a book page "runner" that I made by hot gluing torn out book pages together.
We also made little book trees by folding over the pages of vintage books to make a cone shape. This is one on the dessert table.
The DetailsDo you ever have an amazing vision don't know how to make it all come together? We were so lucky that the very talented Lettie Peterson from Rust and Lace saved the day. I love her vintage design style.
The RoomIt's tough making a church gym look elegant. But, we had a nice burlap wrapped Christmas tree.
The EntertainmentWe were pleased to hear 3 violins, a flute, a guitar, many voices, and a nativity narration. I reprized my role as Mary. I'm holding a doll because no one would loan me their real baby for the night. :(
Is it just me or is this month flying by? I'm attending an ugly sweater party this Saturday. What party to you love to attend this time of year?
