Hot Chocolate Christmas Party (3)

Happy Monday, my friends! I hope your Thanksgiving weekend was amazing! We just returned from celebrating down south in the sunshine. There’s nothing like that St. George sun, even if it was a wee bit chilly outside. ;) I have about a million more photos to share of our weekend, but I’m going to get a bit ahead of myself here because…CHRISTMAS! Ah! Since we had everyone together for the weekend, we were all so excited to pick out a tree! There has never once been a fake tree in the Call household (nor will there ever be, I assume!) so we found ourselves a real nice looking tree, strapped it to the roof of the car, and brought it to my parent’s home. On one of our last nights together, we had a little hot chocolate / s’mores / tree decorating party. Christmas music blasting through the speakers, chocolate a plenty, what could be better? Ellie thought it was the best thing ever. I have a little video coming soon, but I just wanted to share a few details of our little family party (and a printable or two below!!)

I’m all about the plaid this season, so these hot cocoa wrappers were my favorite to make! (See instructions and printable below!)

It’s not a party without chocolate! (And graham crackers and marshmallows and donuts, of course)

Marshmallows! My love for these things run deep. Also, the extra ones may or may not have ended up in a slight marshmallow war at the end of the night. ;)

These hot cocoa cups were my favorite to make! And SUPER easy too! I found these adorable cups with lids at Walmart, along with Scotch® Expressions Tape, and Scotch® Create Double Sided Tape. I printed out the plaid wrappers, cut them down to size, then used the double sided tape to stick them to the cup. (I recommend not printing on super heavy cardstock, so the paper will curl around the cup easier!)

I needed a few more easy + colorful decorations, so I made a few toothpick flags. Using red and gold Scotch® Expressions Tape, I folded a piece over the toothpick, cut out a little triangle, and voila! Easiest. Thing. Ever. ;)

Last minute, I also added a few more pieces of tape to the vases and cake stand. I loved the extra added pop of color and how simple it was to spruce up the table.

I wish I had taken more photos of our tree decorating (I took a lot of video instead), but we seriously had such a great time together. It’s been a long time since we’ve had everyone decorating the tree! And, please note our traditional Santa hats. It’s not a party at the Call house without them! ;)

  1. Reese's inside smores is heaven on earth! I Love it! Also, this is such a cute party idea. I love how the washi tape dresses things up a little more. You're so clever!

  2. I have to admit that I dislike sponsored posts. But I also have to say that generally yours are quite good, because you make a (believable) story out of the advertisement.
