Let's get this party started! Now I know it's a little early for Christmas but I love it and you need time to get your projects finished...or started as the case may be!!I love winter- well not the cold but the feeling of general goodness and cheer that people get. I love having others over as it gives me an excuse to decorate! Not that I need an excuse- it makes my day too but having a guest makes you want to make things extra special. As Christians we are admonished to "practice hospitality" – to be "given over" to it (Romans 12:13; I Timothy 5:10). Our homes should be filled with warmth, generosity and hospitality toward others.
* Hanging snowflakes - I used fishing wire to attach them to our chandelier. I started with different size acrylic snowflakes (CC &M) stamped them ("Stays On" ink) and went over some of the flourishes with silver Stickles. I added Snow Tex for the snow effect on the tips.
I had so much fun with the cake slice boxes (CC & M)in acrylic! Wouldn't you love taking one of those home! I had so much fun decorating them that I had to make them the centerpiece! Here's a close up!
*Note the white tissue snowflakes...those came in between my acrylic snowflakes!
* I used rub ons for the sentiment, the snowflakes are stickers. I added a little bling (Kaiser) in the center of the snowflakes. I used a little Snow Tex on the bottom and added ribbon and flowers(Prima) on the backs. Because I need everything to match I used my roller stamp(Stampin' Up) to stamp silver flourishes on my plain white gift boxes! These could be presents or prizes for party games - you never know! ;)
OH! To assemble the cake boxes I used Killer Red Tacky Tape - this stuff is awesome. It is very thin and clear double sided tape that can keep anything together! I even used it to tape the ribbon on the boxes! You can get this at CC&M and Terry has a "killer" deal on it right now! LOL!
Of course a party isn't a party without chocolate! Yum!
*I just had to add a pretty layered flower (rhinestone-Kaiser, white-Creative Imaginations & Heidi Swapp) here too to match the theme!
Add a table cloth, some lighting, music, food and friends! Woo hoo Party!
