My 4 favorite parties of the week including Christmas parties! | CatchMyParty.com

Not surprisingly, Christmas parties are such a popular theme on our site right now and you can find two adorable ones in my 4 Favorite Parties of the Week! There a  festive red and green Santa themed Christmas party and a fantastic red and white reindeer themed Christmas party. My other two favorites are a nautical themed baptism with amazing under the sea treats,  and a colorful and whimsical woodland party with cute forest creatures. You will love these four parties!

Santa Claus Cupcakes DIY

Santa Claus Cupcake DIY | CatchMyParty.com

I love food crafting! When I saw that our snowman cupcakes were such a hit this year, I decided to try my hand at this Santa Claus cupcakes DIY.

Using mostly store-bought items I was able to make these pretty quickly, and I think they turned out so cute. To me these little Santas almost came to life... so much so, that when my daughter bit into one, I actually felt a little pang in my heart. :( I know, the good thing is I can always make more!

Cute Gift Card Holder DIY

Gift card holder DIY | CatchMyParty.com

Every year at the holidays, I give gift cards to my daughter's teachers and a few other people in our community.

I know they appreciate them, but to me, gift cards always feels a little impersonal. That's why I came up with an easy way to make giving a gift card more meaningful.

Giving Back While Shopping This Christmas

Lainey TOMS + Target11

As I had mentioned in my previous TOMS for Target post, TOMS and Target have teamed up this holiday season so that for every #TOMSForTarget gift you buy, they're giving away shoes, a blanket, or a meal to someone in need. I think that's such a great way to be giving back while shopping this Christmas.

As part of this campaign I got to go to Target and purchase some of those special items. To help me show them off is Lainey...

Here is a gorgeous cranberry orange spice stove top potpourri DIY from Shauna Krantz from Ella and Annie Magazine to make your house smell spicy and delicious for the holidays!

There is just something special about the smell of Christmas. Christmas smells of cinnamon spice, tart cranberries, and citrus orange, all the ingredients I used in the potpourri. Plus, I added in fresh rosemary to give it a bit more earthiness.
