My son's 9th birthday happens to fall right before Christmas, so this year we moved his party ahead and celebrated early. Why didn't I do this before? It gave me a lot of time to prepare and we had a blast getting ready instead of putting this on top of present wrapping and Christmas parties & dinners.
I decorate mostly in red, white and light blue for Christmas, so I decided to go with those colors for his party too. I am sure the pictures speak for themselves. Everyone had a good time and the cocoas (especially the Nutella cocoa) were yummy!
I found a lot of these ideas on the internet by searching for hot cocoa party!
These cups are made using those GIANT marshmallows!
The table is wrapped with wrapping paper.
Did I mention that my son has a large personality?
The cake is a Mario Power-UP mushroom. I just baked a cake in a large metal mixing bowl, put it on top of a cake stand, covered it with chocolate icing, rolled fondant and painted eyes on the bottom of the cake stand with chocolate.
Remember, Santa is watching! Our town has a wonderful tradition in the town square. Santa comes and all of the 3-6th graders sing Christmas carols on the front steps of the court house. After the carols, the trees in the square are lit. Love this Santa, don't you!?!
