Round up a few girlfriends and host a Christmas Favorite Things Party this season! If you have never attended or hosted a favorite things party, then you might want to start now. They are so much fun, and every one goes home with fabulous new goodies. I am in love with the black and white buffalo check Christmas decorations this year.
HOW TO HOST A CHRISTMAS FAVORITE THINGS PARTY
1.) Let your guest know how many people will be at the party.
2.) Tell your guest to bring __ of their favorite thing. EX. If there are 6 guest they will bring 6 notebooks, or 6 Coffee Mugs.
3.) Exchange everyone’s favorite things during the party. Each guest goes home with 6 fabulous items! (depends on the number of guest at your Christmas favorite things party).
Save a stamp and hand out your Christmas Photo Cards from Shutterfly during your Christmas Favorite Things Party or any holiday gathering you have this year! I have ordered my holiday photo cards from Shutterfly for a few years now. They have GORGEOUS designs to choose from, and amazing print quality! Not to mention all of the fabulous coordinating extras like envelope liners, address labels, stamps, and more.
BUFFALO CHECK CHRISTMAS IDEAS
I ordered black and white Buffalo Check napkins from amazon. You can layer the napkins on top of each other to create a table runner. Use small floral cutters to cut down cedar and pine branches. You can lay these across the table runner to form a garland. You can then add in your cranberry sprigs for pops of red, and have a gorgeous Christmas table centerpiece. Or you can add in a few more pops of other greenery like this silver dollar eucalyptus from Trader Joe’s. Add a few white candles and you are finished creating an affordable and elegant buffalo check Christmas party centerpiece.
Have fun mixing tons of different textures, colors, and finishes to create your gorgeous Christmas favorite things party place setting. I chose to use Sophistiplate for my charger, plates, and bowls. They have some amazing paper good products to offer! I fell in love with this copper silverware set, and it pairs well with some copper mule mugs.
Create a cocktail that your guest can enjoy sipping on during the party; like this DELICIOUS Holiday Cranberry Sangria Recipe.
Use mini cutting boards to create an appetizer assortment for your guest buffalo check Christmas party place setting.
You can choose to serve appetizers only, or you can also do a sit down dinner. Shutterfly offers some fabulous customize-able menu options.
Serve up a few varieties of dessert. You can mix in store bought and home made to save time. My cupcakes and peppermint bark are from a local grocery store. I couldn’t resist placing the mini cupcakes in the adorable mini copper mule mugs – Cute Right??!! This YUMMY Holiday Cranberry Cream Cheese Ball is homemade, and an easy recipe you MUST try!
Invite your guest in style using some of Shutterfly’s fabulous Christmas Invitations.
You can order some of your favorite things for your Christmas Favorite Things Party from Shutterfly. Like these adorable notebooks and buffalo check pillows!
