Here are my favorite parties added to our site this week... Red and white colors are the theme at this festive peppermint party. You won't believe all the amazing ideas at this Rainbow Dash, My Little Pony party. There's even a "kissing" booth at this fabulous princess party. And so many lovely accents at this magical Nutcracker party.
There's nothing I enjoy more than browsing through Pinterest looking at inspiring images. In fact, a lot of times, I have to pull myself away from Pinterest because an hour has passed and I'm still in the infinite scroll down to the bottom of the page! Who's been there?
I tried to find pins that were either stunning, creative, delicious, fun, or just plain adorable like this one.
Check out the board and see what you think. I know there will be an image or two you'll want to repin and maybe even try.
And remember, red Solo Cups might be a natural fit with your holiday decor. :)

How about some cute little paper stockings to hold your utensils ? Aren't they super sweet?
Here is how to make them...
- Scrapbook papers in contrasting colors
- Stocking template you can download here
- Glue (I used some roll-on glue tape, that way there is no drying time)
- Use the template to draw the stocking shape on your chosen paper.
- Fold the piece of paper along the long edge
- Cutout the stocking shape
- Glue the two parts together along the edges, leaving the top open, and add a stripe of contrasting paper at the top.
And there you have it!!

I could browse Etsy all day! Here are some of my favorite Christmas finds so far this season...
I'm also kicking off our first Etsy Team Designer Challenge for the holidays. The theme is "snowflakes."
By entering and designing items that incorporate the theme, not only will you get a chance to show off your handmade "snowflake" holiday goods on our site, but you could also win an HP Officejet 7500A Printer.
So here's how you enter:
- Have an Etsy shop
- List yourself in our free Catch My Party vendor directory: catchmyparty.com/vendors (Click on the light blue link in the upper right-hand corner of the page that says "Add your listing to our vendor directory." If you're not a member, please join our site, then head back to the vendor page to fill in your info. Once you're done you should see your listing immediately on our vendor page.)
- Add your handmade snowflake-themed items to your Etsy shop by midnight (PST) November 30th and tag them "CMPsnowflake."
- You will automatically be entered into our HP Officejet 7500A Printer giveaway.
Then I will do a random drawing on Thursday, December 1st to determine the winner of our printer giveaway!
Happy crafting! I can't wait to see what you come up with! And please share this challenge with all your Etsy teams and Etsy circles.

If you're thinking that you don't want to do a party in traditional Christmas colors this year, take some inspiration from these fresh wintery blue parties... Brrrrrrr.
Chris N's Let It Snow Ladies Night Gift Exchange -- I love the hanging silver snowflakes on the navy blue backdrop and the use of white and silver desserts.
Pamela S's Elegant Blues Holiday Party I love the use of the simple cake bunting and thosed iced mitten and present cookies are gorgeous.
Candace M's Winter Woodland Party -- Again I love the use of the hanging snowflakes, plus the silver dove, white reindeer, and white mountains as table accents give it a cool snowy feel.
Tiffany C's 2009 Girls Cocoa Party -- Again, hanging snowflakes, this time from the chandelier (great idea). Plus all the desserts are in white or baby blue, and simple teal ornaments and white snowballs give the table some visual punch.
To add a little inexpensive polish to your party, we're giving away a free Christmas printables collection designed by The Inspired Occasion that would fit great with a wintery blue party. The printables include Christmas party invitations, cupcake toppers/decorative circles, a large “Celebrate Christmas” bunting banner, food label tents/place cards, drink flags, and my personal favorite… a cake bunting banner.
If you throw a wintery blue holiday party, I'd love to see it. Please add it to our site so I can show it off.
This week's party photo comes from Frog Prince Paperie's Gingerbread Christmas Cookie Exchange.
What a gorgeous dessert table and this gingerbread house is the absolute show stopper! Check out the rest of this party with the adorable printables. Plus, check out the other fabulous Frog Prince Paperie's parties on our site.
