One of my favorite places to shop during the holiday season is Pier 1. They always have the cutest little gifts (especially the ornaments!). This year, they had loads of darling penguin-themed decorations + mugs. Cuteness. Pier 1 asked me to share my favorite items and how I am incorporating them into my holiday entertaining so here is my Penguin Holiday Party!
So here’s how to set up a HOLLY PENGUIN PARTY of your own! It’s the perfect little set-up for a holiday breakfast, hot cocoa bar, cookie decorating, you name it! And it’s simple.
- Start off with a fun table covering. We used a black + white striped fabric (my fave). You could use solid white, black, red, or green too! Visit your fabric store for dozens of options.
- These solid white dishes are my “go-to” for almost all my table designs. I bought them from Pier 1 a few years ago and use them daily. They make every decoration on your table “pop”!
- The centerpiece item is this penguin tree which I paired with other penguin items! They’re all sparkly and SO cute. What I love about these items is that I can use them from year-to-year on the holidays as decoration on mantles, sideboards, etc.
- Penguin ornaments were the perfect little plate topper which doubled as a favor too! Guests can take their ornament home, hang it on their tree, and remember the party!
- A hot cocoa bar is simple! Set out a variety of mix-ins like mini marshmallows, crushed peppermint, mini caramel chips, etc. I loved the penguin mugs at Pier1! Use fun wooden scoops like my holiday line here for Sucre Shop.
