Ho ho hope you're having a great start to the Holidays! :p
I personally LOVE the few days leading up to Christmas! All the excitement of counting the days, making sure all the shopping is done, halls are decked, presents are wrapped....honestly, it's a party-gal's dream.
Crazy busy. But that's just the way we like it!!
Speaking of party gals, if you haven't seen it yet, our Holidays Guide this year boasts some incredible party ideas, crafts and recipes from our fave party bloggers - so go take a peek to get your more festive inspiration, like today's Pink Holiday Tablescape and FREE printable gift tags!

Following on from yesterday's Santa inspired post, I thought I'd share the DIY for the cupcakes I made to match my Christmas Candyland desserts table.
I used sugar paste fondant and printable toppers to decorate the cupcakes. It's not rocket science - more like playing with modelling clay! :)

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?! ;)

Christmas is only a few days away, and this week we have some super cool party ideas to help you keep the kids entertained during the Holidays! Starting with today's Elf Bakery Shop - A Cookie Decorating Party.
Crissy and I worked in collaboration for three Holiday themed printable party collection this winter, including this red and green Elf Printable Party Kit. I LOVED designing those little elves for her, and as always, she did an incredible job styling it all!

Do you do the Elf of the Shelf Christmas tradition?
It's a new thing for us, and totally taken over! I love the whole fun aspect of it, and as my husband said "I think it's actually more fun for the parents!"
We love having the little elf stay with us for the Holiday period. The elf gets up to loads of fun and funny mischief, including baking and decorating cupcakes and leaving little presents around.
I think the elf on the shelf knows we're a household of cupcake/party-loving people ;)
To celebrate the elf's arrival, I've designed some fun Elf on the Shelf inspired FREE printables that you can download and use to throw a party to celebrate!

This super cool Penguin Birthday Party (pun intended..) was styled by our fabulous contributor Mindy from Creative Juice for Bird's Party Magazine Winter 2011.
Mindy used Bird's Party penguin frozen Printables and create a really rather fabulous "igloo" inspired desserts table, and I think the cute details she incorporated made the party really soft and delicate, showing just how versatile the theme can be for any child's winter birthday - Boy or Girl!
Check out all the amazing details, and party styling tips from Mindy below...
