Christmas Pins: Party Edition

       I am in full on Christmas mode, it's all I can think about and I think thats probably because last week we picked names for our annual Christmas party: The Jingle. Now I've been brainstorming gift ideas for my secret santa and looking at cookie recipes for our cookie exchange. When looking for inspiration I always go to Pinterest, especially because their "Holiday" section has now been completely taken over by Christmas Crazies like me. 
Here are some of the things I've been pinning for the impending Jingle:

The next time I'm hosting the Jingle I definitely want to hand out these awesome Printable Christmas Invitation Cards. TeAmoCharlie makes them on Etsy for only $9.99!

Sugar and Cloth posted this delicious recipe for Peppermint Eggnog Shots! I think if you added a little rum it would make a fun party drink, especially if you have a candy cane theme!

I have my cookies narrowed down to 3 different recipes and this one of them. The pin did not have a specific recipe but basically its a sugar cookie with food coloring covered in holiday sprinkles. When you take them out of the oven you pop a holiday Hershey kiss on top and voila, a fun holiday cookie!

Normally I head over to Michaels Crafts or A.C. Moore to buy these adorable Take Out Boxes with a Christmas theme to put my cookies in. They're normally 50 cents and it allows each person to take home their very own box filled with cookies, but this year I am thinking about personalizing little buckets like you see in the above picture. These Santa buckets are so fun and I love that they would have each person's name on them. 

Ahhh isn't this such a great gift idea?! 

This year I have vowed to get a Christmas manicure over at my local nail salon. I think these candy cane nails would be so much fun but I would definitely need a professional to do them because I do not have steady hands.
