Crazy for Christmas: Ready to Party

Hey there!
We are so excited to bring you Crazy for Christmas this week,
filled with lots of inspiration from Reverse Confetti!
We have a theme for each day, so you'll want to check out 
the Reverse Confetti blog to see links to the projects for the next three days.

Our theme for today is Ready to Party.

Reverse Confetti products are perfect to use for a Christmas party!
I started off by creating a chalkboard sign using some stamp sets & dies as inspiration...

I was inspired by the wreath image in Wreaths Confetti Cuts
and for the "Joy", I copied the gorgeous font from Merry & Bright.


Now, for my party décor, I was originally going to go with traditional
Christmas colours, but when I was shopping for napkins and paper plates,
I found these wonderful napkins.

Aren't they pretty?
So everything would coordinate, I used teal and red for my cupcake toppers and food cards.

To make my cupcake toppers, I diecut the Holly Confetti Cuts
from teal and red cardstock and added a bit of ink blending to each of them,
before I adhered them to toothpicks.

Sage and I had a lot of fun making food together for our party!

I created signs for my buffet by folding a piece of 4x8" in half.
I stamped my letters in red using Alphabetical  -- which is so perfect
for a project like this!
Then, I added the Wreaths Confetti Cuts diecut from teal cardstock.

Now, I after I stamped the "Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls",
I realized that my wreath was too small to fit around it.
Rather than restarting, I diecut a second wreath and trimmed two "hearts" from it.
I cut my first wreath in half and inserted a heart into each side.

Here's a photo of everything set up and ready to go before the guests arrived..

It's always fun to have friends over!
