So back to the creative reason for you reading this-ness. I don't have much in the way of holiday platters and serve ware so I decided to stick with the theme for the season and wrap my dishes! They turned out pretty cute and the clean up was SO easy!
I started first with an adorable cupcake stand that my sister made for me. I took the whole thing apart and wrapped each layer. When I was putting the whole thing together, I was careful not to rip anything. In order for me to find where the screw was to go, I stuck a toothpick through the other end to make a small hole as my marker.
This way I didn't tear the paper and have to re-wrap.
After I finished, I needed to balance out the table. I wanted a platter for the veggies, but wet veggies on wrapping paper is not a great idea so I wrapped the bottom of a clear platter so that the paper didn't get wet but you could still admire its festiveness!
With all the craziness that the holidays bring, I decided to buy mostly pre-made food. These little lemon bites are from Costco and absolutely scrumptious! Yellow didn't quite stick with the theme so I just grabbed some frosting pens and added what was supposed to look like mistletoe to the tops. As you can tell I started moving away from the mistletoe idea and ended up somehow making strawberries? I dunno, but they were green and red and that's all that matters!
All together I think it was a pretty fun night, and I'm excited to make this a Christmas tradition!
