Last weekend I invited some of my favorite blogger friends and hosted a tiny Christmas craft party (photos of the party itself coming in a few days... :)). People who have been reading my blog for a while know that I love preparing parties, including a matching decor and tasty food.
As always, I made sketches, thought about a color concept, decided for food which I wanted to buy and prepared decor elements. :)
The food in the huge bowl on the lower left corner of the photo is the only part of the sweet table which is homemade (I'm gonna share a recipe another time), all the other things are from my favorite bakery in town and from the supermarket. Due to a lack of time, I decided to rather concentrate on the decor and on the crafty party projects than to concentrate on preparing lots of homemade food.
We were having mulled wine, tea, spiced cookies, a cake, cinnamon stars, gingerbread and many other sweet things.
We also had another table with homemade salads (a green salad and a noodle salad) and tiny mediterranean baguettes. Hmmm, lots of delicious food!
(those three photos were taken by Vivi, but edited by me :))As you can see, I made tiny toppers which look like mittens. I found the idea on Pinterest, sooo cute!
I sewed Christmas stockings and a Christmas bunting for decor, sooo pretty. Some weeks ago I collected branches in the woods, painted them white, put them in vases and used them to hang Christmas balls. Moreover, I made huuuuge confetti and put it on the wall (idea found on Pinterest).
(those two photos were taken by Vivi, but edited by me :))Hmmm, all that food was not only tasty, but sooo pretty to look at.
Have you ever thrown a Christmas themed party?
How do you like my sweet table? :)
