A Holly Jolly Cookie Decorating Party

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! This is Annabelle’s 5th year celebrating Christmas with these ladies. We chose cookie decorating as our theme long ago and my head went straight to cute and sweet, green, pink and red with scalloped aprons and gingham prints…and as we got closer, Annabelle had a different vision. She thought it would be so fun if they all wore ugly sweaters. So, I ditched all of the cute ideas and went straight up red and green with tinsel and sweater poms to really match the crazy sweaters. It was still adorable, and very festive!┬áThe girls listened to Christmas music and sang along while they decorated stacks of cookies to bring home. This party was hosted on a Sunday morning so there was a breakfast cart filled with sweet goodies like donuts and cinnamon rolls with bottles vanilla milk. Each guest went home with a gift, matching Christmas jammies, for Christmas break sleepovers. I hope these girls never stop celebrating together!1

Christmas Cocoa and Canvas Party

Annabelle’s annual Christmas party became our Girl Scout Troop Christmas party this year. We chose a Cocoa and Canvas theme. We used the conference room again for this one so that we had one large table for our painting crafts. We did two easy painting projects, one stencil and one free hand. The girls enjoyed Christmas cookies and a Hot Cocoa bar while they painted.
