Christmas Party Food Ideas:


Make homemade fortune cookies, and then personalize the fortunes for family and friends to wish them good health, and much happiness in the new millennium. Package them in Chinese carryout cartons, filled with silver metallic shred...inexpensive, thoughtful and easy! Here's a recipe to make 48 cookies:
3/4 cup egg whites 1-2/3 cups sugar
1 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup flour
3/4 cup very finely chopped blanched almonds
1/2 tsp. vanilla
48 fortunes written on 3" X 3/4" strips of paper


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix first three ingredients in a bowl until sugar dissolves. Stir in remaining ingredients, one at a time until well blended. Drop dough by level teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheet. Allow 6 cookies per sheet. Bake 10 minutes, or until edges are golden brown. Remove cookies, one at a time, from baking sheet. Place 1 fortune in the center of each cookie; fold cookie in half; pinch sides together. Work quickly before cookies cool and harden. (Adults - ages 8-12 with adult supervision)

 

Make a cookie cutter wreath...a wonderful gift to give to a family, a teacher or a grandparent. They'll use the cookie cutters for many years to come. Using festive ribbon, attach holiday cookie cutters to wood, grapevine, straw or Styrofoam wreaths. You could even add a few real cutout sugar cookies. As soon as the cookies come out of the oven, poke a small hole in the top of each. After the cookies cool, thread thin ribbon through the hole, decorate, and tie to wreath. Finish the wreath with a big bow, and your favorite cookie recipe! (Ages 5-adult)


Make a Peppermint wreath…fun to give, or for your own family to enjoy. Start with a Styrofoam wreath that is at least 2" thick. Using straight pins, attach the wrapper ends of starlight mints (red and white) in a circle around the wreath. Start on the outside edge, and work your way in to the center of the wreath. Add a bright red or green bow. You can also make this wreath with assorted candies…and allow family and friends to enjoy munching on your craft through the holiday season. (Ages 7-adult)

 

Build yummy "gingerbread" houses…without baking! What you'll need for each house:
1 half-pint milk carton
6 honey graham cracker squares
Frosting – see recipe below
An assortment of candy-peppermints, M&M's™, gumdrops, mini candy canes, etc.
Frosting (this recipe should be enough for 4-6 houses): 2 large egg whites, and 4 cups of powdered sugar. Beat egg whites until they form peaks, then slowly add powdered sugar. The frosting will act as glue for the houses, and to attach the candy, and will harden as it sits.

Staple the top of the milk carton. Trim graham crackers to fit the sides of the carton, and attach with frosting. Squeeze a thick layer of frosting onto 1 side of 2 graham cracker squares, and press onto the top of the carton for the roof. Spread frosting to cover the triangle shaped spaces of the milk carton on the front and back of the roof. Using frosting, decorate the "gingerbread" house with assorted candies. If you are doing this project as a family activity, cover a board with some white gossamer, or white batting (snow), and create a Christmas village!

 

Christmas Party Decorations:

 

Use some of the above "food ideas" as decorations if you and your family make them ahead of time. Treat your family like company. Don't save the best china, outfits and decorations for guests. Treat the ones you are closest too and love the most to holidays full of the best. This is the year of decorations – Go All Out! Even the tightest budgets can decorate using inexpensive items such as balloons. Think Big! Be Creative! 

 

Christmas Party Favors:

 

Paint little 3" clay flower pots to use as place cards/favors at a holiday table. Fill the pots with festive candy, or with votive candles. The pots can be spray painted silver or gold, and embellished with faux jewels for an elegant look. As a fun alternative, paint the pots red or green, add swirls/stripes/dots…you name it, and add names to the pots, written with a paint pen. (Ages 5 to adult-could be a fun activity to do at a Kid's Party). Check out our Holiday Store for hundreds of holiday and seasonal favors!
