Christmas Tea Party {FREE PRINTABLES}

The holiday season is here and I am very happy to share with you today the photos and FREE printables from a shoot that I styled earlier this year for Twinkle Twinkle Little Party Magazine. It was a thrill to work once again with Andressa, editor and creative genius of TTLP Magazine . If you haven’t had a chance, you must see this magazine! Grab a cup of your favorite tea and enjoy the talents of so many amazing stylists.

The theme this year was “Christmas in the Spring” and I decided to style a tea party play date for girls to enjoy and to start thinking about their Christmas wish list. Since it was summer, I wanted to use bright, jewel tones, rather than the traditional Christmas colors of red and green. I also kept the designs simple without a lot of Christmas graphics, so the printables can be used all year!

I began by styling a small dessert table filled with delicious treats and a few touches of Christmas details!

“You’re Sweet” Cherry Printable Tags {FREEBIE}

Yeah! It’s summer! To celebrate the start of my favorite season, I designed a new set of FREE tags that are available for you to download today!!!

I recently visited one of my favorite stores, http://www.pier1.com, in search of a hostess gift and came across a sweet, fragrant display of cherry scented candles! I knew this candle in a jar would be perfect. It smells amazing!

Using a red gable box, gingham ribbon, and “You’re Sweet!” tags, makes the hostess gift just perfect!

These hang tags would be a sweet touch to any birthday favor treat bag, too! Don’t you think?

cherry jar #4

If you are bringing dessert to a summer barbecue, why not try Cherry Cheesecake in a jar! It is an easy recipe to make because it is no-bake and the jars are easy to transport with the lids on. Who doesn’t love eating desserts in jars:) People are always so impressed when I bring these desserts.

Here is a perfect summer dessert recipe! Try different toppings…blueberry, apple…yummy!

Cherry Cheesecake In A Jar:

*6, (8 oz) mason jars (you can use smaller jars if feeding a larger crowd)

*8 oz cream cheese, softened

*8 oz heavy whipping cream

*1/2 tsp vanilla

*3/4 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

*1/2 cup sugar

*2 cups graham cracker crumbs or crushed graham crackers

*3 tbsp melted butter

*1 cup of cherry topping (canned or homemade)

Beat the cream cheese, lemon juice, vanilla, and sugar until creamy. In a separate bowl, whip the heavy cream with a mixer until it forms peaks. Fold whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture. Add melted butter to the graham cracker crumbs. Place approx. 2-3 tbsp of the graham cracker mixture in the bottom of each jar. Using a spoon or piping bag, fill the jars with the cream cheese mixture (leaving enough room for the cherry topping and lid). Gently tap the jars to ensure the mixture is level. Add a layer of cherry filling on top. Wipe off any messy streaks with a damp paper towel. Close jars with the lids and add ribbon, baker’s twine, or jute twine, and the printable tags! Presto…dessert in a jar! Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.

Enjoy and have a SWEET day!
