Sweet Kids Christmas Party ideas

I love being inspired by such creative individuals, such as the creator of the ideas seen here below, Chris Nease, designer and writer for www.celebrationsathomeblog.com.  For this party, I really love the use of the kids aprons starting out as chair decor, tying the table scape together.  

This same scene can be recreated on any budget, these ideas are meant to inspire you for your child's Christmas party, or even at the "kids table" Christmas day!  Take the thought and run with it!  I saw cute holiday straws at Hobby Lobby with the cutest holiday cups, perfect for milk and cookies, or hot coacoa and fudge.  

Whatever spurs your interest, enjoy and get creative!

Kids Candy Coated Christmas Party

Are you ready for some inspiration for a kids Christmas party?  If you're like me, the kids will be out of school for the next week leading up to Christmas and you'll need something to entertain them, right?  This may just inspire you - I hosted a small gathering for my kids and a couple of friends.  We called it a "Candy Coated Party" because it was all about sweet decor, and decorating their own "Christmas Trees" (ice cream cones), and cupcakes.

Each child had a place set with personalized aprons, "snowman" milk bottles, and candy cane napkin rings with a decorated cookie on a stick.  They had their own dish of icing to cover the cones and cupcakes, and plenty of candy toppings to add on top.  White cotton candy was the perfect "snow", while powdered donut holes were the perfect "snow balls."

The centerpiece was a trio of trees I made by hot gluing candy to white foam cones.  Adding ribbons to the top, and cotton candy for a snow-covered base finished it off perfectly.  Candy bouquets were made by filling a vase with foam to securely hold candy canes, lollipops, and cookies on a stick.

After the kids decorated their food items, they played outside in the (barely there) snow.  Hot chocolate was waiting to warm them up, with a snowman Peep on the side.  This is the time they were able to write their letters to Santa using the adorable free printables from The Two Savvy Sisters
There were plenty of treats to take home in their 'take-out' boxes, as well as the personalized aprons.  They all had a great time, and needless to say my kids didn't have an appetite for dinner that night!
