This weekend I hosted a Gingerbread House Decorating Party for the girlies! Nothing makes me my heart happier than having so many of my favorite gals in my home during the holidays. There was quite a bit of prep to get everything together for the party, so I wanted to make clean up easy for myself after the party. With that being said, I still wanted everything to look super cute when everyone arrived.
Luckily, the Jingle Bells Party Box from Eat.Drink.Host made it so much easier for me! If you’re hosting a party you may want to get a box yourself, or even buy the items from the box individually.
The box comes with so much fun stuff, but there were a few things that were perfect for my Gingerbread House Decoration Party and made clean up so much easier!!
They were perfect for each girl to use as a work station to build their houses on. It kept my beautiful dining table clean and made each place setting look so cute and personalized.
I found the cutest holiday glasses I wanted to put out on the table for the party, but didn’t want any drinks directly on my table. The coasters were such a hit, so festive and of course added another cute touch to my table.
The grub paper was a life saver and can be used for so many things! For this party, I taped together three pieces of the paper and used it as a Powder Sugar Snow Station. With all of the girls dusting their houses with “snow” the grub paper kept my table from looking like a snow storm hit it!!
Want a sneak peak at everything in the box? CHECK IT OUT!!! The adorable felt banner was another favorite item of mine that I hung for decoration.
