Best Kids Parties: Christmas

My Party

Names: Oliver (4) and Arlo (1)
Location: Ontario, Canada

We love any excuse to throw a party and there really is no better excuse than Christmas! I made mini gingerbread cupcakes, almond cookies, orange chocolate shortbread, gingerbread men and cinnamon tortillas with a strawberry mint salsa.

My friend Farrah brought some dairy-free gingerbread men along with icing and fun candies for the children to decorate with. They had so much fun doing this activity all by themselves.

After all that sugar, the kids had fun running around the house laughing and playing together. I was actually able to sit around the dining room table and enjoy a conversation with my friends. It was a wonderful afternoon spent with good friends and good food.

Thanks Naomi! Readers, visit Naomi at Kitchen Party.
