Christmas Party Decor

Monthly stamp clubs are the bread and butter of my business. I truly love my stamp club ladies. I get to see them every month and build friendships. We have so much fun and the only way to end the year together is with a party! In December I transform the studio and decorate in Stampin' Up! style.

My party must haves ... linens, a center piece, party decor and of course, party favors! 

The center piece ... I had some electric candles nestled in red festive burlap stuff (I think that is the technical term!).  The metal stars were created using Stampin' Up! foil sheets. This was technique was showcased in a previous blog post, click here!
The mason jars are the project that my stamp clubs created at this event. You will have to check out my blog post for these, click here!

 Party favors ... I wrapped a Turtle for each guest and placed it on their plate. Layered below each plate was a 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" sheet of Cherry Cobbler card stock for a pop of festive color.

Party Decor ... I whipped up a banner. And I mean whipped up! I had some Cherry cobbler card stock laying on my desk and a bunch of scraps and accessories from Christmas cards I have been creating.

Each club member brings a treat to share and we sit down together to eat and visit. We also do a Christmas gift exchange. It is a Chinese gift exchange style and we all bring a $10 wrapped gift. The gifts that come always so super great! We have a blast and enjoy the night. If that is not enough, when we are done, we clear the table and create two special projects. The mason jar above was one of the projects this year. The second was a Christmas gift box using our wood-mount stamp cases. Click here to read my blog about that project!

I hope you have been inspired to add a little Stampin' Up! party decor to your Christmas party!

Thanks for visiting! Have a creative day!
