Tis the season for cheery get-togethers, holiday parties, Christmas shindigs & festive gatherings!
Every year, my besties & I get together for a fun night in! We gather together with bottles of wine, copious amounts of chocolate, lots of carbs & sweetly-wrapped gifts. The night ends with a thrilling game of Dirty Santa! It’s a favorite tradition & one we’ll continue for years to come!
Today I thought I’d share the inside scoop on our girls’ night in just in case you’d like to start the fun tradition with your besties!
It’s no surprise that I am always in charge of decorating. I love to go above & beyond to make my girlfriends feel extra special.
For this year’s party, my color theme was a mix of clean whites, bright reds, emerald green & mint with a hint of gold foil. I found just what I wanted from Shindig Paperie’s party room… their happy assortment of napkins & plates are too cute!
No party is complete without a cute cake stand & a jar full of colorful straws! I love Euna Mae’s assortment of colorful cake stands & Shindig has a large array of straws perfect for any party theme.
I also picked up a bundle of Shindig Paperie’s party picks! They’re just so fun & add a festive pop to any homemade dessert or holiday cocktail.
Of course, a gal cannot show up empty-handed to her girlfriends’ shindig so I whipped up these toffee chocolate chip bars for the occasion (find the recipe here). They’re decadent & delicious & perfect for the holidays!
I hope you’re inspired to get together with your friends! With a handful of cute supplies, a delicious dessert, a pretty gift & a bottle of wine, you’re guaranteed to have a jolly good time with your best gal pals!
