I absolutely LOVE Coca-Cola, and I am excited to share this Plaid Christmas Party Ideas, Recipes, Gifts, and FREE Printables using Coca-Cola Glass bottles. Having this party outside gave it the rustic and cozy feel I was wanting. You can also recreate this set up on your back patio, or you can take it indoors. I used my vintage office door desk for the dessert table.

My amazing dad and husband made all of the wood stumps, platters, coasters, and logs you see in the party. They cut them from fallen trees in my parents backyard. You can also purchase these at craft stores. I used red cake plates to hold some of the food items. If you don’t have cake plates you can use any regular plates you have around the house. You could also put paper circles directly on the stumps and place your food on top of the paper.
I am obsessed with copper mule mugs, and use them often (like in this favorite things holiday party). For this party I simply poured Coca-Cola into the mule mugs over ice, and added adorable buffalo plaid Christmas party straws.
Purchase or bake a delicious cake, and decorate with Christmas decor items or a Merry Christmas cake topper. The Tent Cards are part of the FREE Printables at the bottom of this post. You can download, add your own text, and print!
Download our Rustic Plaid Christmas Party Free Printable Mini Gift Tags and add them to your Coca-Cola Glass bottles. Then you can use them as Party Favor Gifts. I used a mini wreath to set the Coke bottles in. Then added a few mini berry sticks (ripped pieces off from large sticks) to the wreath.
Let your kids give the gift of Holiday Joy with Coca-Cola! Individual Cokes are the perfect gifts for teachers this Holiday Season, and with the Coca-Cola Glass bottles there are plenty to go around!
Purchase Cupcakes at your local Sam’s Club and use our Free Printable Party Logos (cupcake toppers) to decorate the top! Simply print, use a two inch hole punch to create a circle, tape to a lollipop stick, and place in your cupcake!
To save money cut pieces off of Cedar Trees and place them around the bases of your wood platters. Then you can top with some Berry Sticks (local craft store). Use fake Christmas Garlands to add color on the front of your dessert table. I had to use a staple gun to get the garland to hang. If you don’t have that option you can lay the garlands on the top of your table toward the front, and still get close to the same look.
Add items on the ground next to your table to give some extra layers. Use elements from nature like the shed antlers, painted pine cones, firewood logs, and pine or cedar tree branches. You can create some decorative sticks using the Free 5×7 Printables below and taping them to dowel rods.
YUMMY – EASY – RECIPE
-Brownie Mix from your local Sam’s Club (you will also need the ingredients listed on your brownie box)
-Two regular size cupcake/muffin pans
-Vanilla Ice Cream from your local Sam’s Club
-Ice Cream Scoop or Spoon
–Coke de Mexico Coca-Cola 24 Pack Glass Bottles (made with real sugar and no high fructose corn syrup)
1.) After following the directions on your brownie mix box. Pour your mixture into one of your muffin pans only filling your individual holes about 1/4 of the way full. Add a little oil or Crisco to the top. Place your other muffin pan on top.
2.) Bake at the temperature on your brownie box for about 22 minutes. When a tooth pick comes out clean you are done! Place the entire set of pans (with both pans) in the freezer for about an hour. Then remove your top pan and your Brownie Bowls.
3.) Mine did not come out as perfect as I have seen on Pinterest …. No worry they still work and look great! Just peel off a little of the uneven parts if yours look like mine did:-)!
4.) Add your scoop of vanilla ice cream.
5.) Now you are ready to set them out for the party. I do not recommend pouring the Coca-Cola on early! Let your guest pour their own Coke when they are ready to eat.
6.) When you are ready for the Coca-Cola to be added simply pour until you feel you have enough!
YUMMY Coke Float Brownie Bowls! They seriously are delicious! My daughter begged to have them again the next day… So we did!
-Glass Bottle Drink Holder – (local craft store or search online)
–Coke de Mexico Coca-Cola 24 Pack Glass Bottles From Sam’s Club
-Free Printable Gift Tag (bottom of this post)
-Twine, ribbon, or string
-Berry Stick (local craft store)
-Wreath or Ornament of Choice (local craft store)
1.) Make sure you have all your supplies needed. You could use an ornament instead of a mini wreath if wanted.
2.) Open your drink carrier. It doesn’t stay open on its own very well. Place your Glass Coca-Cola bottles inside except for the front middle spot.
3.) Tape your wreath or ornament here and then add your bottle.
4.) If using a wreath you can add berries to it now. Pull small pieces off the berry sticks. Then wrap around your wreath.
5.) Print the Free Printable Gift Tags below. Cut your gift tag, use a standard hole punch on the top, then string your twine through and tie to drink carrier handle.
6.) Add in a few berry sticks on the front right corner side.
Now your gifts are ready to hand out to friends, family, neighbors, teachers, co-workers, coaches, or use for a dirty Santa gift!
You can gift the individual glass Coca-Cola bottles instead of the 6 pack for a smaller gift option. Use the Rustic Plaid Christmas Party Mini Gift Tag Free Printable to label your gift. Great for neighbors, teachers, co-workers, friends, coaches, and family.
Use Vintage Coca-Cola Crates to hold the Coke de Mexico Coca-Cola 24 Pack Glass Bottles. You can find these at many local antique stores, flea markers, or garage sales. I was lucky enough to use my parents.
When guest arrive they can pour or pop open a Glass Bottle of refreshing Coca-Cola, grab some food, and then take a seat to enjoy each others company, and catch up on events throughout the year!
If you are hosting it outside in the middle of winter, then you may need a fire. What says cozy gathering quite like a fire?!?! You could even roast s’mores!
The Coke de Mexico Coca-Cola 24 Pack Glass Bottles from Sam’s Club were absolutely perfect for hosting a Rustic Plaid Christmas Party! It was easier and cheaper than purchasing several smaller packs.
