Holly Jolly Christmas Party

This paper is unbeliveable & fits right in here at Budget Birthdays.  Be sure to read the whole article to see how inexpensive this party actually was!! This party is by 505 Designs +Paperie.(You should really take a look around her site. This lady is TALENTED!)
 It was inspired be the North Pole party I posted about a week ago.  I found it at Kara's party ideas. This is how the designer explains here party inspiration,tips & tricks

Here is what Cathy said about the party- "I created this party to display my new printable set and give some easy and inexpensive ideas for anyone hosting/attending a Kids Christmas Party this year. I wanted everything to be very lighthearted and child-like, of coarse Santa had to be included. Thank you so much to my good friend Monica of Andary Studio who captured the party perfectly and Tracie’s Sweet Treats for coming through at the last minute with delicious Red Velvet Cupcakes.

My main inspiration came from the adorable North Pole Cupcakes found on Kara's Party Ideas here.

To create the hot coco cups simply dip the rim in red chocolate and then again in red sugar sprinkles. This can be done a few days in advanced to save on time. The milk bottles were Starbucks frappuccino bottles cleaned and wrapped with drink bottle label topped off with 2% milk & a red polka dot straw. The Rudolf suckers were chocolate Rudolf peeps on a lollipop stick – pretty simple but way cuter then throwing them on a plate. Milano Cookies were dipped half way in red chocolate and then dipped in crushed up candy canes/peppermints. The reindeer doughnuts were made with chocolate covered doughnuts, pretzels cut in half for antlers, white chocolate chips for eyes and red balls for noses – make sure you remove the noses before serving ;).

This party was created with mostly inexpensive store bought items displayed in a super cute way. Totals: The desserts cost a whooping $25. All in all the party was less then $100."
