Pear Tree was thrilled to be asked to help with decorations for her bridal shower. Inspired by Witney’s beautiful color palette of gold, black and tan, we suggested several perfect bridal shower decorations for her Bridal Soiree. With the help of her sister in-law, hairstylist and cosmetologist Kylee Pickering, the bridal shower was nothing short of amazing.

Happy Holidays! You know what that means? It’s time to adorn the tree, decorate the house, hang up the lights, shop for gifts, order your Christmas cards and feed 20 guests for Christmas dinner. Eeek! We’ve put our heads together and found 6 easy holiday sweets & snacks that will make your to-do list a little easier.

Rudolph’s Rice Krispie Treats
Simply dip pre-made or homemade Rice Krispie bars in melted chocolate. We used chocolate flavored candy melts in red and cocoa colors. Just melt them in a small bowl and start dipping! To finish them off, add sprinkles or peppermint candies to give your treats a more festive look. This treat is one of the easiest holiday food ideas for kids (or Rudolph) because they’re easy to grab.
