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!)

Holiday Dinner Party with Mini Food

For a holiday party this year, I thought it would be fun to host a dinner party where all the food was miniature. My friend Andrea came up with the perfect mini menu. I wanted a fun way to present it so I went to the hardware store and bought some thin planks of wood and some bricks to line up all the pretty dishes down the table. It was so easy and looked so pretty. I always shop at Crate and Barrel for mini dishes (I have for years!). They have the best selection of appetizer plates and holiday entertaining supplies.
