There’s Galentine’s Day and Friendsgiving, but what about a good old fashion ladies get together during the Christmas holiday? I searched all over Pinterest to find such a party and didn’t have much luck. And with Ariana Grande’s ‘7 Rings’ song as my inspiration, I created my own! I’ll show you how to host a favorite things holiday party with Chanel inspired party decorations that will make you want to, pop the champagne and get cozy with all your girlfriends this holiday season!

You’re Invited to the Favorite Things Holiday Party
I first got the idea of a Favorite things holiday party on Pinterest and since then, I’ve been building Favorite Things Party Pinterest Board with so many fun ideas! From all that pinspiration, the Ladies Holiday Luncheon theme was created along with this gorgeous holiday brunch invitation that can be tailored to any event you are throwing this holiday season.
Welcome to the cozy holiday party! Come in for some holiday cheer!
Christmas Brunch Tablescape and Place Setting Ideas
I can’t tell you how much I love setting up for a party. While some people find it stressful, I find it oddly calming to decorate a space that I know is going to be filled with love and laughter. For the tablescape for this Favorite Things Holiday Party, I wanted it to be holiday inspired, but simple and chic. An inexpensive, yet high-end look was what I was going for.
I saw the idea of displaying your name cards on jingle bells on Pinterest and I just had to copy the idea!
And if you want to copy it too, you will want to complete the look with these Editable Christmas Party Place cards!
I love how the gorgeous holiday brunch menus came out! And you can recreate these too for your holiday party, with these Editable PDF holiday menus.
I purchased so many gorgeous and inexpensive items from Amazon for this party. And I have included them all for you right here! I love that most of the items are things I can use for so many other occasions that don’t necessarily have to do with the holidays or Christmas. For example, these black and white buffalo plaid napkins are cute all year round. And the gold glass vases are going to be so cute in my house!
Printable Favorite Things Holiday Party Decorations
Tis the season to sparkle, and I have all the Christmas party decor for you to sparkle at your own holiday party!
A banner is always a great staple piece for your party! And I just love how this Tis The Season to Sparkle banner came out.
And boy do I have an amazing decoration idea for your Christmas (or any!) party you’re throwing! By collaborating with Tara, over at One Stylish Party I was able to get my hands on this amazing DIY Streamer Backdrop Kit that has so many different uses for your party! I used it for the backdrop to my dessert table, and look how cute it turned out!
What I love most about this DIY Streamer Backdrop is it is a DIY project to do with your kids or friends. And while it is a do it yourself project, you don’t have to be good at crafting or have any experience creating backdrops in the past. This kit comes with plastic tablecloth streamers, plastic fencing grid, and a set of directions to create the perfect backdrop for your party. It is so easy and fun!
Holiday Party Centerpieces
Every party table needs a centerpiece! Any vase can be made into centerpieces just by adding these gorgeous printable centerpiece sticks!
You can create these sticks by using these Favorite Things Party Circles. You could also use them to make stickers, or anything else you can think of. If you need help understanding what exactly goes into making a centerpiece stick, check out my tutorial videos to learn how.
Holiday Party Candy Bar
What party is complete without a candy bar? Plus all these mamas had to go home with something for the kids to justify them being out with their friends all day!
A candy bar is so easy to do. All you need to recreate this candy bar is assorted candy in bulk.
And I’ve included some links to the candy I used, below.
I love having an assortment of desserts for partygoers to choose from. That way everyone gets a little something! These Vanilla Buttercream cupcakes with these gorgeous printable cupcake toppers turned out beautifully for the holiday party.
And if you love how they turned out as well, these printable favorite things cupcake toppers are perfect decoration for your Christmas party!
Up next is the cake! Tis the Season to sparkle… and eat!
My absolute favorite dessert was these absolutely dazzling and delectable cookies from Stone House Oven.
The ladies over at Stone House Oven have a brick and mortar in Chelsea, Michigan. However, they can help you with all your cookie needs anywhere in the country on their Etsy shop. Not only are these cookies made from the finest, all-natural ingredients, are nut and egg-free, but they are also SO CUTE. That’s like the most important thing amiright?
You can literally give them any piece of artwork (a logo or company name, for example), and they can customize any image for your event. This gorgeous Chanel inspired holiday clip art looks so good on these cookies!
To top it off, the ladies over at Stone House Oven package each individual cookie in a gorgeous favor bag and it arrives in beautiful packaging. I highly recommend using them for all your custom cookies! I know I will be going back for more!
My Holiday Spirit is in the Liquor Cabinet
Time to drink champagne and dance on tables! There’s nothing better than being with good friends and family during the holiday season.
This “My Christmas Spirit is in the Liquor Cabinet’ sign is the perfect way to let guests know that they can pour themselves a glass of champs or whatever you’re serving!
I found this amazing recipe on Pinterest for a Pomegranate and Rosemary Champagne Cocktail that you might also be interested in for your favorite things holiday brunch! They were so tasty!
Ingredients for the Champagne Cocktail
- Pomegranate Arils (seeds)
- Pomegranate Juice
- Rosemary springs
Since my holiday party was a brunch, I made sure to serve coffee with all the fixins. I love this “Coffee with my girls is the only therapy I need” sign.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Bottles of Bubbles…
What’s a favorite things party without gifts?! This party is all about the gift exchange. On the invitation, encourage every attendee to bring her favorite thing that she’d like to gift to another lady at the party.
When everyone has had their festive treats and cocktails in hand, the gift exchange begins. Place every attendee’s name into a bowl. When you draw a person’s name, they head over to the gift pile and select a gift.
Once the gift is opened, the person who brought the gift explains why it is their favorite thing and why the receiver is going to just love it!
I was SO excited to give my gift, which I hope she loved! It was a gift card to the online interior design platform, Havenly. As you might remember, I wrote all about my experience with Havenly designing my master bedroom that turned out beautifully! So I knew it would be such a great gift for someone else to receive!
I absolutely think she loved it and will love the redesign in her house! If you want to give the same gift to your girlfriends, here’s a few links: Save $10 when you purchase a mini design package, and use code “HAVENLY10” at checkout or purchase a full design package and get $20 off with “HAVENLY20”.
You’re My Favorite
There’s nothing better than being together with your friends on the holidays. That’s why I love the idea of this party and what it represents. However, the party always comes to an end. Therefore, you can send your guests off with adorable favors and coordinating favor tags.
Guests got to take home these beautiful cookies from Stone House Oven so that they could share them with their families. And tied to the beautiful cookie packaging were these editable and printable,’ You’re My Favorite’ favor tags.
These favorite things party favor tags are so easy to DIY for your ladies Christmas party!
