Chocolate Necklace DIY

Today I’m partnering with Lindt to bring you the DIY for these fun little holiday party necklaces. I’m a big fan of making festive decorations that your guests can wear (remember these and these?) These necklaces are even more awesome because they double as favors (or hang them on each chair for a dinner party for your guests to enjoy later.) Lindt LINDOR Truffles are perfect for these because their packaging is so shiny and colorful like jewels (I love the LINDOR Truffles and how they melt in your mouth!) They also make great gifts for co-workers and neighbors and can double as holiday garlands around the house. Last month I went to the Lindt Chocolate factory in New Hampshire where I got to see the process and high Swiss standards of their Master Chocolatiers. I’ve been a fan for years so it was really impressive to see. Click through below for the full instructions!

Silver & Gold Star Piñatas

by Kathleen Ballos

Whenever I put silver and gold together, I can’t help but think of Christmas. Make these miniature star piñatas and fill them with all the silver and gold treats you can find – they’re everywhere this time of year! Wouldn’t it be fun to make these as party favors for an all silver and gold party this winter? (P.S. Even more metallic ideas!)

Modern Holiday Decorating

Here’s a little peak at our living room bookcases all decorated for Christmas. When I’m styling my home for the holidays, I like to use things I already have but add in some modern festive touches. For my shelves I added a banner and lots of mini trees to turn the shelves into a little forest.  I like that the decorations aren’t overwhelming and instead are just subtle touches. I love this perfect gold tray to serve treats (or hold cookies for Santa.) I also bought two of these benches that work great as extra seating for a party or in the guest room to hold suitcases when guests come.

Bluelounge

With all the electronics we use these days we have lots of chargers and cords in every room that aren’t very pretty or practical. Bluelounge has a new line of products for Target that solve the problem of what to do with all of those unsightly cords. They design beautiful and practical cable management tools. I used Cable Box Mini to hide the big tangle of cords that always sticks out from under our Christmas tree. It’s perfect, with a bow on it, it looks like a present and easily blends in. Now there’s only one cord that reaches to the outlet.  I also used their Cable Drops to guide the cord along the wall so it’s less noticeable. The final result looks way more organized. Check out all of their products here!
