Hot chocolate stirrers. I thought I would make hot chocolate on arrival with chocolate stirrers and cookies. I stamped the lollipop sticks to give them a seasonal look.
Added melted milk chocolate to an ice cube tray shaped like a Christmas tree or bauble then added the sticks, mini marshmallow, mini candy canes or mini gingerbread men.
Once they had hardened off they were wrapped in cellophane bags and tied with some natural twine.
I have covered some sweet lollipops in netting and tied with a ribbon to make a pretty addition to a Christmas tree all ready for the children.
All ready for the sweet trolley. I always wrapped lollies for the girls when they were little for treats throughout the festive period so they will love it. A lovely reminder of their childhood.
I have had fun folding napkins, I tried lots of different ways but finally settled with a tree it made me smile and adds a little more Christmas sparkle.
I have a basket that will be by the door so that I can give each person a little token as they leave, my way of thanking them for coming. This week I added a few children's brooches these are the ones I made for Lily and Daisy.
I want everyone to feel that they were welcome and to feel loved, a token gift maybe but filled with love.
More chocolate, this time some mini rocky road and some individual chocolates to have with tea/coffee after lunch or another little treat to take home.
Melted chocolate was poured into a mould and a few little treats added, chopped nuts, raisons, cranberries, marshmallow or candy cane pieces. They were then popped into the fridge to harden and then placed into cellophane bags and tied with natural twine.
A few mini candy canes added to give a little colour and they are ready.
I am once again joining Amy over at Love Made My Home for the weekly get together, pop over and join in the fun. How are your Christmas preparations going?
See you soon.
