Coffee and Cocoa Christmas Party {PHFR+ a Recipe}

~PRETTY~

My boys had an entire week off of school before we went "home" for Christmas.  They each asked me to invite friends over to play so I decided to invite them all at the same time along with their mothers. I wanted a playdate too!


To send out the invitations I used an alternative to evite called Punchbowl.  It's free and more fun than evite in my opinion.


Part of the joy of having a party for me is having an excuse to make some extravagant recipes and pull out the German gluhwein mugs my sister has diligently brought me from her trips overseas.


~HAPPY~

It does my heart such good to spend a few hours in the company of faith-filled moms who share openly and support one another through the journey of parenthood.  


~FUNNY~

My three year old son had fun sharing his toys with his buddies from school.  When I spotted them beneath the train table I had to snap a photo. I wonder what they were discussing?
~REAL~

The downside of having 13 boys over to play:  The Lego aftermath.

~RECIPE~ 

This quiche recipe is the simplest to make and has become my go-to recipe.  My only suggestion is that I use extra sharp cheddar rather than monterey jack cheese for more flavor and zip.


I hope you are inspired to host a playdate for you and your kids soon!

  3. Your photos are always so lovely and inspirational! Looks like a fabulous party. Although when my Andrew saw the photo of the Thomas table he wanted to know when we were getting one. ;-) I also want to try that quiche recipe. Looks delicious.
