This year instead of doing a secret santa, my friends and I decided to do a cookie decorating party instead! I think this is the perfect way to still do something fun and in the Christmas spirit, but without spending the extra money. Secret Santa's can get expensive, especially if you're in more than one. This seems like the perfect alternative because you still get to spend quality time with your friends, but without breaking the bank.
I'm hosting the party at my house which is perfect because we just got our kitchen done about a year ago. Now it's fully equipped with a large island and an oven that doesn't have a duct tape handle (yeah, the last one was ratchet). I'm so excited to host my best girlfriends for a night of fun holiday festivities. With a party in mind, obviously some Pinterest planning is involved. I've been compiling my favorite holiday party decor and food/drink ideas that I want to include at my party. Here's what I'm envisioning.
