Christmas Cupcake Decorating Party

Christmas time is always a special time for children - filled with "visions of sugarplums", candy canes, gingerbread houses and hot chocolate with big fluffy white marshmallows. A great way to bring in the holiday spirit is to kick off the season with a "Cupcake Decorating Party" with your children and their friends.

Before your little holiday elves arrive, be sure and set up their decorating areas with all the essentials needed for them to decorate their cupcakes. Icing in different holiday colors, sprinkles, holiday shaped marshmallows, and candies such as m&m's, gum drops, peppermints, skittles, and more.
Once our little elves arrived we had their parents drop them off for an hour because they were not allowed inside Santa's kitchen! When the parents came back to pick them up they would get their "surprise" from their kids - complete with a darling holiday tray, a dozen cupcakes and a special card just for them.

Once the decorating began - there was no stopping our little elves! We served them cookies and punch (not that there wasn't enough sugar on the table already!), sang along to our favorite carols, and brought in the Christmas spirit with laughter and love. Once all of their creations were finished they got to set them up on their special trays for their parents. They were so proud and full of excitement to give them to their parents - "their eyes how they twinkled!"
