I added a wreath to the inside of our bay window in the kitchen last week. I made this wreath out of the extra branches from our Christmas tree. It was a thrifty addition but I like how it brings more decorations into the kitchen.
I also updated our kitchen chalkboard to say Merry Christmas!
Then, I made Darcy a Christmas bow tie to wear to the party. I made this with a little bit of fabric that I got from JoAnn's and it was so easy to make. It slipped around one of his old collars and he actually liked wearing it!
I made a lot of food for the party and we were pretty surprised that everyone managed to eat almost everything! A lot of these things went over really well, here's what we had:
Buffalo Chicken Dip Bites
Mushroom and Asparagus Tarts
Cranberry Champagne Cocktail
I made drink stirrers for the cocktails with straws I ordered online from Garnish and little flags that I printed. These were really easy to make and so fun at the party.
I made Christmas colored jello shots for this party too! My lemon drop jello shots are always a hit, but I decided to make cherry limeade jello shots for this, since they're red and green. These were sweet and sour, but not too strong!

It was a really great party with lots of food, drinks and fun with friends! We played Dirty Santa as usual and it was fun as always!
Hope you're enjoying the holiday season and have a Merry Christmas!
