Christmas Party Must-Haves from Oriental Trading

Disclosure: I am an ambassador for Oriental Trading and received free products to facilitate this post.

Christmas is almost here! Many companies, schools, and even families have already celebrated their yearly Christmas party, but there’s still a lot of partying left to go!  Oriental Trading always has a wide of variety of seasonal items to help you create the ultimate party!  I recently received an entire box of Christmas items that could turn any ordinary holiday dinner into something merry and bright! Today I’m going to highlight those items and tell you why I recommend them for your holiday bash!

Table Decor

I found the cutest plates and napkins (pictured above).  There’s just something about this mix of colors and patterns that make me smile.  They are bright and bold with a touch of the whimsical, and I think they look great for adult or children’s parties.  Also managed to find this polka dot table cloth, featuring pictures of Santa, an elf, rudolph, and a snowman.  I think it goes quite nicely with the plates and napkins.

As you prepare your party today, you need dishes to serve your food.  The Christmas tree, bauble, and snowman trays above come in a set of 12 (4 of each design).  Their cute shapes and colors make them a perfectly festive way of serving up appetizers, snacks, candies, as well as your favorite holiday sides, or even pulled turkey! It’s also an affordable to serve your food in style without spending a lot of fancy serving trays. [Read more…]
