I created this MODERN + FESTIVE HOLIDAY CHRISTMAS PARTY a couple weeks ago. I’m excited to share it with YOU, my lovely readers! I wanted to showcase a lot of fun Christmas party ideas in one place…& together in one festive party.

THE BEST PART….I’ve included FREE PRINTABLES to go along with the party! Just scroll down to the bottom of this post and you will find them! The darling printables were designed by Crystal of C & C Paperie!

Party supplies used from Kara’s Party Ideas Shop:
Red Polka Dot Gable Boxes
Chevron Paper Bags
Striped Paper Bags
Clear Favor Tins/Pails
Striped Fry Boxes
Striped Square Paper Plates
Polka Dot Cupcake/Candy Cups
Paper Straws
Wooden Spoons
Bakers Twine
Milk Bottles
Candy Sticks

Square striped paper plates available in the KPI Shop. Darling place cards available for FREE below {click on the image to enlarge, then right click to save to your computer}.

These North Pole cupcakes were inspired by Jenny Cookies! I made them by simply dipping one end of a striped candy stick {available in the KPI online shop} into melted white chocolate {adding crystal candy flakes for snow} and inserted the candy stick into the top of each cupcake. The cute North Pole signs are available for FREE below {click on the image to enlarge, then right click to save to your computer}. I attached the signs to the candy sticks with frosting.

Hot Cocoa Mugs

We dressed up regular white ceramic mugs with red candy sprinkles! Gently dip the top of the mug in melted white chocolate and immediately add red candy sprinkles. The chocolate will harden, securing the sprinkles.

Santa’s Mustaches

Santa mustaches were made with a mustache candy mold, white candy melt, white sprinkles, sucker sticks, and striped paper straws {all from the Kara’s Party Ideas shop}! I placed the mustaches in a cute chevron patterned milk bottle, also available in the KPI shop. The tent card/label is available as a free printable at the bottom of the post!

These hot chocolate tins are a cinch to put together and make such a statement! Inside clear plastic pails {available in my shop here} layer hot cocoa powder, crushed peppermint candies, chocolate chips and marshmallows! I tied the pails off with some red polka dot ribbon from the shop and a coordinating Merry Christmas tag, available as part of the free Holiday party collection at the bottom of this post!

Chevron print paper bags from my shop were filled with white vanilla flavored cotton candy. A cute tag that read “Santa Beard Cotton Candy” was attached to the top of each bag. The tags are also available for free at the bottom of this post!

Milano Cookie Santa’s

We made adorable Santa cookies with Milano brand cookies and a few other simple supplies! Dip both ends of the Milano cookie in melted white chocolate and add red sprinkles and a white chocolate chip to the top portion of the cookie to create Santa’s hat. Then by using a tiny dab of melted white chocolate, attach a red candy to the middle of the cookie for the nose and chocolate chips just above the red candy for the eyes.

Chocolate Doughnut Reindeer

These reindeer doughnuts were a big hit! Chocolate mini doughnuts were used as the reindeer body, a red candy inserted into the middle of the doughnut was the reindeer nose, white chocolate chips were pushed into the top of the doughnut for eyes, and broken pretzel pieces were inserted into the top side of the doughnut for antlers! Easy and super cute!

Fry Box Candy Treats

I filled green striped fry boxes from my shop with more red cherry candies. I’m in love with fry boxes right now, and use them for so many things! When it comes to parties, the possibilities are endless with these!

Wooden Hot Chocolate Spoons

These wooden hot chocolate spoons were the perfect addition to the hot cocoa station. Guests stirred their hot cocoa with these adorable spoons, adding more flavor and fun to their hot chocolate! I dipped wooden spoons from my shop in white candy melt, then added green and red sprinkles to the top. After they cooled they were put inside clear mini cello bags and tied off with bakers twine {all from the KPI online shop}.

Merry Christmas Cupcakes

Vanilla cupcakes were placed in darling red polka dot nut cups/candy cups from the KPI shop. The darling cupcake toppers are available for free below {click on the image to enlarge, then right click to save to your computer}!

Marshmallows treat sticks

Regular marshmallows were dipped into melted red candy melt and green nonpareil sprinkles from my shop. A red striped paper straw {available in the KPI shop} was inserted into the top center of each marshmallow as a final holiday touch.

Reindeer Cupcakes

Create more fun reindeer treats with cupcakes and pretzels! These cupcakes were made with frosting, brown sprinkles, miniature vanilla wafers and pretzels!

Polka Dot Gable Boxes

Guests were able to take extra cookies and treats home in some polka dot gable boxes from my shop. Attached to the top of each box was a cute thank you tag {part of the free printable collection below…click on the image to enlarge, then right click to save to your computer}.

 

Peppermint Cake Stand

I dressed up the side of a ceramic cake stand with lace and peppermint candies! I used a low temperature glue gun to attach the lace and peppermint candies {because of the low temperature, glue can be peeled right off after use} to the side of a red cake stand. Such a cute way to add the Christmas feel to your table!
