I love entertaining and I love having people over to the house. With the girls being the age they are and many of our friends with kids of their own, it’s hard to get together and host them like we used to. I think I discovered a balance with my idea to host a holiday family party this year for 12 families from daycare, school and the neighbourhood.
The theme is ‘Pajamas & Pancakes’. Kids (and parents!) will have the opportunity to sample our hot chocolate bar, decorate a holiday-themed cookie, make their own ornament and, of course, stuff themselves with pancakes and all the fixings!
Additionally, we asked families to bring a gift for charity to the party which I will be bringing to the toy drive at work.
To let invitees know about the event, I made up a graphic invite using Pic Monkey. For obvious reasons, the below image doesn’t have all the personal details 🙂
How cute is this? I love how it turned out!
With the party being less than 2.5 weeks away, I need to prioritize some of my upcoming projects to ensure the house is in good shape. I want to try to get some holiday decorations up but I don’t know if we’ll go full out with the tree. Especially with all those extra people in the house – I don’t know where we’ll put everyone!
