Easy and Elegant Gingerbread House Girls Night In

Thanks for joining me today for 
an easy and elegant gingerbread house girls night in
using paper products.

 With a burlap tablecloth as the base
I used plaid plate chargers 
and matching plaid mini pedestal stands.
 I added matching plaid mugs 
to enjoy your favorite
seasonal eggnog, coco or coffee!

Then I mixed in red polka dot ribbon
wreath napkins and dinner plates
that are both beautiful and practical because they are paper.

This makes clean up both easy and quick 
so you can move on to gingerbread house decorating
with your girlfriends.

Gingerbread House Girls Night In With Cozy Cable Knits

Today we are hosting a Gingerbread House Girls Night In Idea for your holiday get together!
 Grab your girl friends, sisters and other special women in your life 
and invite them over for some gingerbread house creating
or just catching up before the rush of the holidays!

 The table is set with cozy cable knit dinner plates, red fringe linen napkins and 
mini pedestal plaid plates topped with matching plaid mugs for your cup of cocoa.
 I adore the green & white pom pom napkin rings which match the
burlap plate chargers.  Also the gingerbread table
accents make perfect place cards.
 For additional festivity I placed a linen
cable knit holiday tea towel under each place setting.
 Our gingerbread house is not real, 
but will last the season for 
many years of enjoyment.
Combining plaids, gingerbread, cozy cable knits
and festive colors is a great way to kick of the holidays
with girlfriends!

MeeMaw Animal Party

Thanks for stopping by!
Today we're celebrating a grandson's
birthday with an animal party.
I have linked the sources for the 
table elements in the store name(s).
 Sometimes it's hard to plan for a boy vs girl birthday
especially elementary school age
so I went with an animal theme.
 I knew a floral centerpiece would not do so
I shopped the house and borrowed my 
topiaries from the front hall as the centerpiece
pretending they were giant evergreens in a 
jungle for animals!
I had bought these on QVC.
 Playing off the animal theme I used these
silver salt and pepper shakers.
Mine are from Godinger years ago
but you can find them still on Ebay.
 Each place setting features a burlap charger,
black plate, animal party napkins
and a festive napkin ring from Hobby Lobby.
 To play up the animal theme I purchased
plastic zoo animals from Amazon and sprinkled them
around the table.
 To add to the festive table I used
multi colored plastic tumblers
as glasses.  These were used all summer
and purchased at Target.
This was a super fun table to setup
as boy will be boys we ended up 
playing leopard battles zebra etc
after dinner!
