Buddy The Elf Christmas Party Table - Lady Behind The Curtain  24

I received product from Oriental Trading for this post.  This review is 100% mine own opinion. There are countless movie quotes from the “Elf” movie.  Which made styling this Buddy the Elf Christmas Party Table super easy.  The hard part was deciding which quotes to use.  Since I love them all it was hard to decide.  But once I did Oriental Trading made it easy for me to find fun elf themed items. The first thing I do when I decide on a theme is draw out the landscape of the table (sorry I’m NOT sharing that drawing  ).  Once … Continue reading

Buddy the Elf Hat and Snowball Party Mix

Buddy The Elf Hat and Snowball Party Mix - Lady Behind The Curtain

Sweet and salty at it’s best!  This Buddy the Elf Hat and Snowball Party Mix is perfect to give out as a party favor or serve at your holiday party. I think I forgot to mention that it’s VERY addictive! Of course serving this mix in Elf Boot Shaped Bags doesn’t hurt either.  For the salty portion of the mix I used Bugles corn chips. Push skewers into a piece of Styrofoam (this will be used later to dry your candy dipped Bugles). Melt some green candy melts in a medium microwave safe bowl. Dip as much of the Bugles … Continue reading
