Are you a Frost Bite or a Meet Me At The Mist-letoe?

This time of year, there is certainly no shortage of delicious cookie and Christmas treat recipes floating around the web. So I’m excited to share a few recipes for COCKTAILS & MOCKTAILS so your party has some super sweet sips too! Sierra Mist Mixologists (I think I’d like that job title!) have shared some of their fabulous cocktail and mocktail recipes with us today!

{Freebie} “Snow Day” Drinks + Treats Gift Set

Today’s homemade DIY gift idea is a set of three hot drinks and sweet treats, perfectly paired for snuggling up in front of a cozy fire. These gift sets are so simple to make (even the marshmallows!), but look impressive and taste great.

My Tiny Prints 2011 Christmas Card!

I teamed up with Tiny Prints for Christmas cards this year, and I’m so happy with how they turned out! Black + white stripes is a fave of mine (in fact, black/white stripes appear somewhere in both my books – and will be a signature pattern in my wedding next June).

Candy Cane Fairy Birthday Party

I absolutely adore this adorable Candy Cane Fairy party submitted by Kerry Redemer of Simply Sweet Parties! Nothing says the holidays like little gingerbread men and candy canes. This birthday party is absolutely perfect for a December birthday, chock-full of festive details and delicious touches. The gingerbread and candy cane favors and soft pink color scheme brought everything together perfectly! Sweets included pudding, gingerbread cookies, marshmallow pops, cake pops, red velvet cupcakes and mint hot chocolate. YUM!
