Invitations: Try to incorporate candy canes into your holiday party invitations. You can find free online invites that should have something that will work. If you’re doing it the old fashioned way by mail, send miniature candy canes in the envelope. Make sure to include the party information such as date, time, and location. If you are serving a meal, make sure to ask about food allergies.

Decorations and Table Settings: Decorate the party space with lots of candy canes. You should be able to find them pretty cheap. Put them on tables, vases, on mantles, and even hang them with fishing line, or dental floss from the ceiling. Incorporate red and white ribbons and holiday lights. Go to your local party store and pick up any other candy cane decorations such as plates, cups, napkins, and cutlery. Display your holiday decor on crisp, white tablecloths with the holiday themed plates, cups, napkins, and cutlery as red accents.

Food and Drinks: For the adults, serve up a signature candy cane cocktail. A Peppermint Twist is a great place to start. You’ll need peppermint schnapps, Kahlua coffee liqueur and dark crème de cacao. Garnish the cocktail with a miniature candy cane to add to the theme! For the kiddos’ tummies, how about a delicious brownie treat? Cook up a tray of traditional brownies and sprinkle crushed candy canes on top while they’re still hot. The candy cane sprinkles will melt into the brownies as they cool off. You can also use candy cane sprinkles to decorate red velvet cupcakes, or holiday cookies.

Kid Crafts: For the kiddos, an easy and great way to keep them entertained is to have fun candy cane crafts planned. Making candy cane reindeer is really easy. You only need a few simple items: candy canes, pipe cleaners, small googly eyes, small red pom pom balls, and craft glue. Use the pipe cleaners to make antlers and glue these on the candy cane, along with the googly eyes. Next, glue the red pom pom ball on to make a nose.
