Christmas Party Ideas: North Pole Breakfast Table and FREE Printables

North Pole Christmas Breakfast Table Ideas


Christmas is 'round the corner! Can you believe it?! 

One of my favorite traditions in our house, is the Christmas themed breakfast. Whether on Christmas eve, a few days before or Christmas morning itself, going all out this time of year to treat the little ones is all part of the joy!

Most week days it's our schedules and 'routine' breakfast rituals that take over. And since kids wake up at silly o' clock at Christmas anyways, you might a swell roll with it!

Plus, it's also nice for me to prepare something a little more special and magical for my little elves ;)

Christmas Party Ideas: DIY Santa Cake Pops


Chistmas Party Ideas: DIY Santa cake Pops Recipe


If you follow me on Instagram, you'd have seen a few sneak peeks of these cute Santa cake pops, and today I'm sharing the easy step-by-step tutorial.

My seven year old daughter helped me with these ( you can see her little hands in the photos, bless ) and they are perfect to entertain little ones over the Holiday period. 

I used them for my desserts table at the Marie Claire salon in Paris in November, but they would be cool as a party favor or cute gift too. I see them all wrapped up in cellophane paper for hot cocoa stations or even as part of a Christmas gourmet hamper

Great for using up left over cake too...wait, what left-over cake?! ;)

Yes, it seems we can't get enough of our Holiday Hot Cocoa Bars 'round here. But it's so nice to see different styling ideas, so you too can feel inspired to create your own! 

This delicious buffet was styled and photographed by our fab contributors from CandyGalaxy.com where you can get all the yummy treats featured!!

They used our Hot Cocoa Bar printables (only $5.99 for the full kit!) in the styling of this luscious buffet.  I'll let the pictures speak for themselves! ;)

Quick and Easy Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate Recipe



Following on from our Hot Cocoa Bar pots, today I'm sharing my recipe for delicious Salted Caramel Hot Cocoa.

I love hot chocolate. And salted caramel. But only recently tried combining the two into a beverage fit for the gods. This recipe is so easy and quick since I used ready-made caramel. But works just as well with caramel sweets, which is super fast and easy!

RECIPE: Crunchy Chocolate Macarons with Chocolate Ganache



Macarons are my Achilles' Heel. So until I perfect them, I'm more than happy to buy ready-made. And it was no different for my Hot Cocoa Bar on the weekend. 

I found these delicious chocolate macaron that had a crunchy (thin French wafers called Gravottes) topping and ganache filling, and it was so beyond delicious!!!
