“Ho Ho Ho Santa Claus is coming to town! Christmas is such a magical time of the year and this Santa themed party makes me so excited for Christmas morning. Sticking to a classic red and white color scheme, this party is crisp and clean. A few DIY projects like the large paper mache Santa Hats and the large HO HO HO banner I cut out using my Cricut were combined with adorable handcrafted items like the mini balloon wands and tasseled candy wands from Handcrafted Parties.

Desserts included amazing Santa face cake pops and glittery Santa bellies, a simple yet gorgeous white frosted cake topped with sugared cranberries, and a set of sugar cookies that matched the graphics in the printables perfectly.” – Candace, Lillypaul Designs
