Candy Cane Lane Party


IMG_2935_0003

Hey Replay readers, it’s Jamie from Sweet Jelly Parties! Come join me at the North Pole where you can enjoy some sweet treats and the kids get a chance to decorate cookies for Santa. If it gets too chilly you can head out to candy cane lane and warm up next to the fire pit drinking hot cocoa and roasting marshmallows for smores.

I used the great replay products in a couple different ways. Can I just say I love the new flat plate. They work perfectly for holding the cookies for decorating and I filled the bowls up with different sprinkles and toppings and the kids had a blast.

North Pole sign from swishprintables. You can get them here:  http://tinyurl.com/qbw7jvr

Cut styrofoam ball in half and cover with blanket of snow. Stick solar light into center. Print and cut North Pole sign out and glue. Stick the light outside for a while to charge so it actually glows.

The best thing I purchased for the whole party was a single roll of wrapping paper, it went so far. I used it as a table runner for the cookie decorating. I used it on the backdrop for the dessert table and on the columns for the hot cocoa booth. I was even able to wrap a couple presents with the left over. The backdrop was so easy. I purchased a foam board from the dollar store. Wrapped it with my wrapping paper and was able to find a decorated gift box in the Christmas section that worked with my colors. The yummy treats on the table were Santa hat Oreos, sugar cookies, marshmallow pops and snow covered (coconut) cupcakes, with the cutest North Pole toppers. You can get those toppers as well from Swishprintables to match your centerpiece sign.

The last thing I set up in the living room was a Christmas card exchange. I included an insert in the invitation from Tiny Prints asking guests to bring one of their Christmas cards. They took one of my fabulous cards also from Tiny Prints and they clothes pinned one of theirs to my star made out of ribbon. Great way to save on some postage!

Outside at Candy Cane Lane was a hot cocoa bar. I filled the replay snack cups up with different toppings that could be used while mixing the cocoa and displayed them in the shape of a candy cane. The cups were decorated to look like snowmen and Santa Claus’ belt. I filled small stockings with the silverware and used bowls to hold the smores kits. Instead of regular marshmallows I found some reindeer shaped peeps and thought they would be a cute alternative. My husband recently made me a bench out of an old headboard I found at a garage sale for $3. I was super excited to finally put it to use in front of the fire pit and it looked fabulous with a custom blanket and pillows from Tiny Prints as well.

About Jamie

Hi! My name is Jamie with Five Whimsy Lane and I like to make things pretty. Parties especially. Glitter enthusiast...lover of all things chocolate & a partynista. Is that a word? Wifey to one fabulous husband and mother to 3 amazing children, Caleb, Leilani & Olivia who are my main inspiration. What more could a girl ask for? When I'm not scouring Pinterest for hours (I'm working honey, I promise) you can find me digging in my fairy garden, dancing with the kids or cleaning my Dyson. Who wants a dirty vacuum? My love for parties began over 10 years ago when I was planning my sons 1st birthday. I realized I had a huge passion for details (some might call it an obsession). After many years and wonderful birthday memories later Sweet Jelly Parties was born. Children's events and baby showers are our specialty but I'm a lover of all reasons to celebrate. Anniversaries, holidays, graduations, it's a Friday so let's throw a party.....You name it, I'll glitter it. Every once in a while though I like to trade in my juice box for a glass of wine which is why I'm also a Certified Wedding Planner.
