Our family has grown so much with grandchildren and great-children, we rent a gym with small playground equipment in it to accomodate the children. The other area of the gym is set up for our family Christmas party (potluck).
This year I am going to set a corner in the playground area for a Christmas tea party - A small table and chairs will be decorated with a homemade Christmas tablecloth with small matching napkins.
The menu will be dessert foods - I will make a donut hole tree that will have fruit on it; it will be served with a fruit dip for the fruit. Small square biscuits with ham with jam will be served. I will make each child a gumdrop candy ornament for a favor to take home and enjoy.
The drinks will be hot chocolate served with "chocolate spoons" and mini marshmallows that have been dipped in chocolate almond bark and dusted with candy sprinkles. I will have fruit tea or green tea available for the children that want to drink tea. Gingerbread cookies will be served on gingerbread cookie dessert plates. The hot beverages will be served out of Santa Claus and snowman tea pots.
The donut hole tree (adapted from Katie Brown Workshop) is made by covering a styrofoam cone with parchment paper. Insertion of donut holes are made by use of toothpicks, fruit is placed between donut holes to fill in gaps. Children can pick a donut hole and with the attending adult at the table, the toothpick can be removed before the child eats the donut hole.
We should have at least 11-12 children at this event; the younger children are babies.
