I can not believe Christmas eve is here! I have some last minute “Santa” shopping from Lauren’s visit with the big guy yesterday. Wish me luck finding her last minute requests! I wanted to take a moment and thank you my sweet friends for reading along this year. It has been a amazing year full of new inspiration, fabulous new products in the shop and the best contributors bringing some fresh new ideas for you all. There are some BIG things coming soon in the new year and it will be really exciting to see these things “roll out”. In the meantime from me and all the ladies of the ABN team- we wish you a very merry Christmas and a happy new year! We will be back to regular posting on the 2nd. Hugs and much love from us to you!
Our last holiday party feature is a beautiful green and white Christmas dessert table created by Nathalia of Naatje Patisserie. Although green and white are definitely Christmas colors, you don’t typically see just those two colors by themselves, but Nathalia put together such a beautiful Christmas dessert table together using shades of green and white, you might want to use this color palette at your next event!
Thanks Nathalia, for letting us share your beautiful table with our readers!

Hi! It’s Mariah from Giggles Galore here to share some creative ideas for gift wrapping those special holiday gifts. I love wrapping Christmas presents, there is something so exciting about seeing pretty packages underneath the tree. My mother always wrapped our presents to match the tree and of course she added lots of pizzazz and personality to each present she wrapped.
There are so many creative and fun ways to decorate presents and while I was preparing for my daughter’s class party I realized I had some extra party printables. I decided to use some of the cute snowman printables Rebekah had designed for me to add a little pizzazz to our presents this year.
The key to creating pretty packages under the tree is to coordinate the colors or style of your wrapping. I used red and white as my base for the wrapping paper and added the printables in unique ways for that pop of color and whimsy.
Tulle is one of my favorite ways to wrap presents. For this present I wrapped a water bottle label from the snowman package around the front of the box and then gathered a bunch of tulle around the box and tied it with a pretty bow and a glitter letter for the recipient.
This red and white polka dot paper is one of my favorites and I kept things simple with this present. I simply added a lollipop and cut a tag from the coordinating paper.
To make packages pretty use traditional items in unexpected ways, like this plastic ornament filled with red jelly beans and a party circle that says “let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!” Attach it to a simple white package with red twine and you have a pretty and fun package any little one would love.
Do you still have presents left to gift wrap? Use those leftover party printables to add a little extra special pizzazz to those special gifts.
