A Kids Holiday Party (The Healthier Version)

How can I resist making a Kids Holiday Party this year and giving it a healthier approach?   Well I didn't...Hope the kids had as much fun as I did.......  Seriously, I think they did.  If not only because they got to eat Chocolate Cake at the end to celebrate a friend's birthday (Shhhhh!), but because I think they secretly DO enjoy Fruits and Veggies

The above Strawberry Tree is my Kids Version of Pizzazzerie's DIY: Very Berry Holiday Tree  which by the way,  it's a must see!  I made mine more 'kid friendly' by adding Sixlets as ornaments...

The wonderful and fun printables used for the party are from Shindig Parties TO GO and I worked wonders with them....on Background, Cream Cheese 'Labels', Sandwich Wrappers and even to make cute small servings of carrots and celery.  The Printable collection includes and I used the Cupcake Wrappers (used for Trail Mix and Banana Chips inside Baking Cups), Cupcake Toppers (used on cheese servings this time) and the Write-On Food Labels.  Amazing! 
For the treats, we had Rice Cakes, Turkey and Cheese Sandwiches, Veggie Crackers, Fruit, Cream Chesse Dip, Veggies, A variety of cheeses and meats and Chocolate Milk!

I decorated the top with fabric and holiday ornaments to compliment the party colors.  LOVE how pretty the turquoise and lime green look together....Can't wait to plan many, many parties with that color...hint, hint

Table for the kids below,  I was so happy to find tableware at Target that matched perfectly to the theme and colors and after treats we had fun with a "Holiday Gift Shop" for the kids where they got to exchange their given tickets for gifts either for themselves or somebody special.

 I don't want to forget to mention that the cute snow balls on the table were found on Etsy , at the The Shabby Chic Cottage ...and they were ohh so cute!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS to Everyone!  And come back soon to see my Three Kings Day Dessert Table I'm working's going to be bright!
