Christmas in Candyland Party

Each year a small group of moms and their children get together for the children to exchange new books with each other.  This year I hosted and the theme was Christmas in Candyland. 

Printables were purchased from the amazing Amanda at Shindig Parties to Go!

Straws and straw flags were purchased from Pick You Plum

Suitcase was from Sweet Shop LuLu

Goodie boxes, plates, some candy and sticker craft was from Oriental Trading

Goodie boxes with all the treats they filled them with.
(inside these cute boxes were already tatoos, crazy straws, cookie pops)

Our newly renovated kitchen (see prior post here)

Coloring craft and some sticker gingerbread house crafts for 
the kids.

Oh my, Juniors Cheesecake I got for Christmas, opened today
to share with all!

We sang Jingle Bells before we opened the gifts (books)

Started Youngest to oldest to go pick out a book from under the tree.

Dessert time!

Some freeze dance and instrument fun!

Clean up time!

My last playdate for the 2011 year!

Linking to Bird's Party!

You can link yours up at my linky party open for a few more days!
