For this year's holiday party with our families, I went with a simple red and white peppermint theme. I hardly spent anything at all on the decorations. The peppermint candy and monogram ornaments were made from leftover felt and ribbon, and hung on the same branches that I used for my Halloween and Thanksgiving parties. Check out the felt ornament tutorials at Pink Seude Shoe and Say Yes to Hoboken. The red paper pom poms were also from Halloween.
My little helpers decorated the peppermint gingerbread house from World Market.
Nothing goes better with peppermint than chocolate. Brownie bites (made from the box) were topped with chocolate ganache and sprinkled with crushed candy canes. They were so easy to make and tasty too! See the simple recipe at The Farm Girl Recipes. You can find the tutorial for the peppermint dessert stand here.
I hope everyone had a very merry Christmas. Wishing you a happy New Year.
