Peppermint Party

Today was the big day ~ The Peppermint Party for my boys!

Here are the invitations.  They were really cute, except that she forgot to put the boys names on there.  And I was so busy looking at the cuteness I didn't even notice until I got home.

The table was set with my best paper products!

 The over lay was wrapping paper.
 I made these centerpieces for last year's party and they were still in great shape.
 We had 8 little boys and granddaughter Elizabeth.
 Handpainted polka dot cups.
 The treat bags are ready and personalized ornaments for each guest.  The bottom row are candy cane headbands that were the cutest!!  I wish I could have them every year.  I bought all I could find at 2 dollar spots and only got 9.  Just enough for our guests this year.

Out attempt to get a picture of the gang.  There are a few missing! 

 We played some games and had peppermint popcorn appetizer, pizza, hot chocolate or Snowman punch, and peppermint ice cream and candy cane cookies for dessert.  YUM

Another fun time, and tonight is the grandchildren sleepover.  We will take them out for dinner, read a lot of Christmas stories, watch a Christmas movie and sleep in grandma and grandpa's room by the Christmas tree.

And better late than never to Kim's Boring to Better Party

Merry Christmas!

It is all adorable. Love the peppermint headbands. I never found those this year. Are the other things ornaments? Looks like a lot of fun. Have fun tonight.
