baking party

On the 3rd day of blogmas!
We hosted our first annual Baking Day with extended family a couple weeks ago! We preselected 6 recipes of Christmas treats that everyone wanted to make. They all pitched in to help bring the ingredients and extra supplies. This really helped to make all of the baking happen smoothly. We spent the day visiting, listening to Christmas music, eating the treats, wearing ugly christmas sweaters, and even some crafting! Everyone went home with a take-home box filled with Christmas cookies and treats.

We prepared the take-home boxes the night before. Theses were super simple and added a lot to the day! First, we found some large disposable pans with lids at the dollar store for each family to fill up with treats. I also got some small bread loaf sizes for the individuals that wanted to take some back with them. The pans were then lined with some festive tissue paper. The red and white string was purchased in the holiday wrapping section at Target and the tags were printed from this website (found on pinterest of course!). Even though we were going through the recipes and learning them as a group, I wanted to make sure that everyone went home with a hard copy of each recipe. I used this template (also found on pinterest!) to print the recipes. I'm really happy with how everything turned out!
