Happy Chanukah

modern eight candles card

Our home is a blend of Christmas and Chanukah which we call, “Christmukah”.
I added a few touches of blue and gold to my own Christmukah celebration with these garlands around the house:

Tonight we will celebrate the start of Chanukah with latkas and watching the candles burn low on our menorah on the mantle, next to our Charlie Brown Christmas Tree.
I love the holidays!

Stripe Pok-a-Dot Party

black white handmade

My whimsical handmade stripes and dots paper garlands and ornaments are so fun that they gave me inspiration for another baking project.

I love the combination of stripes and dots. The black and white color palette adds the right amount of sophistication too. If I was to host a stripes and pok-a-dot party, I would want a dessert to match. Brilliant! My first thought was chocolate. So I baked decadent chocolate brownies and covered them with vanilla frosting. The fun part comes next! I decorated the tops of the brownies with black decorating gel into stripes and pok-a-dots.

FYI: save time and stress and buy black decorating gel instead of making black from frosting. You’ll be a much happier baker. Ta-da! Amazingly cute brownies to compliment your party’s theme.

Snowflake Holiday Party

I was inspired to write about my snowflake collections because it actually snowed this morning here in upstate New York. Mentally, I’m not quite ready for it, but in a few weeks a little holiday snow would be just the right festive touch.

You can add the same festive touch to your own holiday party by throwing a snowflake themed event! Start by sending out snowflake pattern invitations. Our snowflakes notecards work wonderfully as invitations. They are paired with metallic envelopes that offer a bit of magical shimmer to the falling snow. We have a couple of sets for you to consider.

Continue to add touches of blues and snow to doorways, mantles, or banisters with our 8 foot long snowflake garlands.

Our snowflake paper ornaments work great for door prizes, napkin rings, or even as gift toppers. Each one is handmade, so every ornament is slightly different!

With the help of AbbyDora Design you can host a wonderful snowflake holiday party that’s fun, easy, and beautiful! If you have additional snowflake inspired ideas, we would be happy to create custom designs just for you. Cheers!
