Merry Dip-mas! Bryce and I had a small party with our closest friends and neighbors. It was similar to a Christmas themed potluck. We told each of our guests to bring their favorite dip to share and something to sip on.
Here’s an inside look at our first annual merry little dip-mas party!
The table had to hold a ton of different dips, crackers and chips, so we couldn’t go all out with the decor. However, the cute little sled from the thrift store (my mom spray painted it) was perfect to give the table some height. We actually put a cardboard box underneath it to give it even more height. Nothing is worse than when everything looks flat.
The small pedestals came from the Target dollar section and the marble cake stands are World Market. In order to keep the table safe from any spills, we covered it with a tablecloth and put Kraft paper on top. We used my small, oval-shaped cutting board to cut out the scalloped edges.
When each guest arrived, I had them fill out a little card that said what their dip was and who brought it. I designed the cards on Canva, but you could just use Word as well.
On our invite, we asked that every bring a dip and something to sip on. Just in case someone forgot, or wanted something different, we severed jingle juice. If you like sweet drinks that pack a punch, I highly recommend this one. Here’s the recipe:
- 1 Bottle of Whipped Vodka
- 1 Bottle of Sparkling Rose
- 1 Liter of Cherry 7up or Sprite
We added cranberries to make it look a little more festive. I had Bryce set out some lime slices and rosemary sprigs so people could doctor up their drink however they liked.
The glasses were all thrifted. My mom has quite the thrifted glass collection, so I always use these for serving. It’s fun to see everyone pick out what glass they are going to use, not mention it’s better for the environment.
This candy board was very similar to the one I put together for Gingerbread and Gin. Most of the candy came from the Dollar Tree. It’s perfect for people to pick at – especially when you fill up on dips and need something sweet.
As each person entered the party, they picked a number out of bowl that corresponded to a cup. Inside the cups were small items like scratch-off tickets, gum, tic-tacs, and Chick-fil-a gift cards.
And To All A Good Night
I hope you enjoyed this inside look at our dip-mas party!
