Candy Christmas Tree Treats

Are these not the cutest Christmas tree candy treats ever?  Perfect to serve at a holiday parties, Christmas Day open houses and even to give as stocking stuffers or small holiday gifts of endearment. We also love the fact that these chocolate tree treats are so easy for the kids to make themselves. While you are preparing your holiday meal, set the kids (and other family members that might be under-foot) up at the kitchen table, and put them all to work. Now add an individual Christmas Tree Treat at each place setting.  You can set them in the middle of each plate or use as a place card holder >> just lean a small place card up against your hand Christmas Tree! #toocute

Now that Halloween is behind us, mom's are beginning to think about what their daughters will wear to this year's Thanksgiving dinner and holiday parties.  Our first stop for girls Thanksgiving outfits is always  Tea Collection. Not only are the clothes adorable, every girl we know loves these easy to wear pieces. The rompers and coordinating leggings  are not at all confining and their soft durable fabrics pass most girls “itchy & tickle tests”.  We also love the bright colors and fashion forward prints that satisfy our constant need to be teaching our children about the world.  (Tea Collection clothes are authentically inspired with a fundamental artistic interpretation of the global destination.

Best Holiday Party Theme – Host{ess} a Sno Ball Party!

Best Holiday Party Theme of 2012 - Host{ess} a Sno Ball Party!

Photo courtesy of  Homemade Hostess Sno Balls

The 2012 holiday season is definitely the year to host{ess} a pink snowball holiday party.  With Hostess declaring bankruptcy this week the end of an era has arrived.  If you hurry you may still be able to pick up a few packs of classic Hostess Sno Balls – the long popular chocolate creme filled cakes covered in marshmallow and then covered in coconut flakes.  Better yet, start a new holiday tradition – throw a Pink Snowball baking party! This theme would also work great as an adorable winter bridal or baby shower, a great sorority holiday party, teacher appreciation holiday luncheon, or a sweet sixteen or Quinceanera party!

We can't believe after lots, and lots of searching we finally found invitations, stamps, centerpieces (just add pink or white tightly packed carnations arranged to resemble a snowball or better yet top with an edible sno ball!), and matching aprons that all coordinate  perfectly with this party theme.  We even found a recipe for homemade hostess sno balls.

Even though coconut is my least favorite food of all time, I must admit this has to be the best holiday party theme of 2012.

Party Hearty!
