Christmas time in our house is all about family, fun, baking & decorating! One of the fun events that my son enjoys is a “Santa Cookies & Cocoa” party with his little friends He chooses a few close buddies and occasionally a girl, to come make homemade cookies one day after school. We started this tradition last year when he was 4 and it was one of the first things he asked about this year when I started pulling out the Christmas bins!
The best part of this tablescape is that is cost under $12! I bought the red & white runner at homegoods for $9.99 and a few greens at the local tree farm to mix with the ones I picked in my neighbors backyard.
I used simple white plates and layered with some festive plates I bought a few years ago. The napkin ring holders are bell ornaments that I had in one of my Christmas bins. Each quest will be able to take theirs home Aren’t the little snowman cups adorable! The kids love drinking their hot cocoa out of them!
These little snowmen I made with socks, tea & rice. I had purchased one about 10 years ago but it was starting to look a little worn so I decided to make one. This is the easiest craft on the planet! Aren’t they little cutie pies I will post a tutorial soon!
When I was decorating the table, I wanted to make sure that it was easily “interchangeable” with my Gram’s blue willow china. Take away the snowmen & festive kid dishes and formalize it up! By adding the blue willow on top of the already placed white dishes, some silver and blue ornaments, candles & few other festive embellishments you’ll have a new look in minutes!
Now it’s time to make cookies and party like 5 year olds!
