Rustic Christmas Party for Kids

This post was written by Sarah of Sarah Sofia Productions for Shutterfly.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! This rustic Christmas party has us singing and dancing with cheer. Circle M Farm served as the perfect rustic winter wonderland backdrop just outside Charlotte, NC with its large green and white handmade barn doors and beautiful countryside landscape.

Guests arrived to a wintery scene with handmade farm tables from Nick, one of the co-owners of Circle M Farm, that were decked out with red plaid, mini trees, pinecones, berries, and garland.

Kids lined up at Jade and May Company’s mobile caravan bar to grab a cup of hot cocoa and warm up. A sweet addition to the hot cocoa was the array of candy cane and chocolate covered stirs.

Rustic Christmas Tablescape

Once everyone had a cup of hot cocoa they were seated at the snow cover farm table to enjoy homemade cocoa cup cookies! Place settings had red plaid dinner plates with white vintage china salad plates. Red plaid napkins were displayed in antler and pinecone napkin holders.

Plates were topped with miniature trees, pinecones, and wrapped gifts in clay pots tied with red grosgrain ribbon created by The Whimsical Rose.

Garland of pine, magnolia leaves, berries, and pinecones served as the table runner. For a whimsical and vintage look, we added frosted glass bottles with gold dollies, white milk glass bottles as candle holders, and gold and pink miniature trees.

Winter Dessert Table

The dessert table was decorated with a red plaid table runner, which showcased the two-tier Lace and Pine Branch Caked designed by Confection Deception.

To create a rustic but vintage winter wonderland we added miniature flocked trees, red and brass lanterns, white trees, large silver bells, and vintage Christmas decorations like the red barn and station wagon with a Christmas tree tied to the roof. You can personalize your table by displaying your family Christmas card from Shutterfly!

After everyone was warmed up and full of winter sweets it was time to get crafty and decorate gingerbread men! Each foam gingerbread man came with a ribbon, fun stickers to decorate, and a piece of paper about the legend of the gingerbread man. They can come pre-made in a gingerbread kit, which will have everything you need for this Christmas activity.

Everyone loves a good snowball fight right?! Kids enjoyed dancing and singing to their favorite songs and a snowball fight. After the snowball fight, kids warmed up by the fire and enjoyed roasting marshmallows and making s’mores.

In addition to their miniature planted flocked trees and gingerbread man Christmas ornaments they made, kids were given black and red buffalo check gift bags filled with red and white M & M’s as party favors.
