Kmart Decorate It Forward Desserts & Decor

This weekend I hosted our Kmart Decorate It Forward House Party with Sassy Mahogany Wives.  I wanted to share some of the pictures from this amazing event.  I love pinterest and we got so many ideas for this event from there.  In keeping with the winter holiday theme we created a hot chocolate bar! This consisted of a crock pot filled with warm milk, white chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips, marshmallows with different flavors and some were made into stirrers placed on a stick and dipped into blue sugar.  We also had peppermint candy canes, whipped cream and don't forget the Bailey's for that special kick to take your hot chocolate up a notch!




We decided to have a specialty drink for this party.  We created a White Chocolate Eggnog Martini and it was delicious!! I always like to try unusual drinks and cocktails during the holidays to stray away from my normal wine or vodka.  It was made with white chocolate liqueur, eggnog, white rum, grated white chocolate and garnished with pumpkin spice and whipped cream.  Yummy!!!



The decor was kept festive with a snow flake wrapping paper backdrop, white tulle skirt lined with blue holiday ribbon and sparkly silver decorative bows.  I thought our little blue Charlie Brown Christmas Tree was so cute and was the perfect centerpiece for our dessert table.



Now for the desserts!! Some were store brought such as the powdered donuts and white chocolate covered pretzels.  But the rest were homemade like this beautiful Five Flavor Pound Cake.... ohhh man this was soooo good and I was so happy I used this day for my 1 free day this week! The cheesecake bites were yummy and you could not just eat one of those cute little red velvet treats! I plan to have a few holiday guest post and the creators of these delicious treats will post and share their recipes with you guys!






We did have food or appetizers at this event but I decided to share those picture and recipes in a separate post. If you are interested in joining my holiday recipe guest post just shoot me an email and I will be happy to feature your recipe.
