Pinterest Christmas Party
As Pinterest continues to explode in popularity, provide an opportunity for your residents to exchange new recipes and learn to make something crafty for their front door.
Guests are encouraged to try a new recipe and bring a copy for their fellow guests (see Christmas recipe card provided by Apartment Life). Event organizers can take the completed recipe cards and photocopy them so that every resident leaves with a new collection of recipes, and you can make color print-outs of blank cards so that residents can have the opportunity to copy down recipes onto custom cards once they return home.
Set up a wreath-making station and walk guests through the steps to make their own wreath. If you’re crafty, provide more than one option and let them add their own unique flair to the design. Encourage guests to decorate their front doors with the wreaths during the month of December. All supplies can be purchased at your local craft supply store - check your newspaper for coupons (JoAnn’s Fabrics and Hobby Lobby both have smart phone apps with coupons). Play Christmas music in the background to get your guests in the Christmas spirit.
Food: provide drinks, a light snack to supplement your guests’ dishes, and disposable plates/cups/silverware.
Supplies: plain Styrofoam wreaths, burlap, lace, Christmas fabric, felt, hot glue guns, Christmas ornaments, and other decorations as desired.
