5 DIY's to Help You Host a Charcuterie Christmas Party

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! We’ve decked our walls with wreaths and filled our table with cheer, all to bring together these 5 DIY’s to help you host a styled charcuterie party!

A few friends and I decided to get together and share some of our talents in order to pull of this styled look. My number one tip when planning a party, is to never do it all by yourself. It’s always more work then you expect and there’s no sense in getting stressed out because then you really won’t be able to enjoy it like you should.

DIY HOLIDAY WREATH WALL

These wreaths were handmade by my mother-in-law. I fell in love with them one day when I saw them at her house and she graciously let me use them. She created the wreaths from grape vines in her garden and wrapped them around a wooden board with nails that form a circle. Weaving in and out, around and around each of these wreaths were made earlier in the year and left to dry to create the most beautiful hand woven rings.

I got greenery from a local florist and weaved the branches along half of the wreath to create a crescent. I adore the way they turned out and though a little tedious, they have held together so well as the greens have dried and maintained their form.

DIY ART & SILK GARLAND

Chalie brought over some of her recently painted artwork and silk garland that she had put together for an upcoming workshop. It was heavily requested that she host a workshop and she just held her first one.

  • A few months ago when I got my wisdom teeth removed it put me in a work out rut. I felt super unmotivated and just blah. Really, mostly just felt sorry for myself. Sounds silly, maybe. But I was thinking about it recently and how that’s kind of continued to linger to the last couple months. I weighed myself the other day (we don’t own a scale so I don’t weigh myself often) and that was a bit of a kick in the butt, I realized that yes I wasn’t feeling good about myself, yes I’ve gained a decent amount of weight, and yes that aligns with the less positive thinking, less motivation and large lacking of exercise.

I feel funny writing this out but I think it’s important to talk about. I shared the times I’ve felt motivation, excited and energized to get to the gym, attend a workout or yoga class, but I also want to share that things happen.

We can have good days, good months, even good years but then something might happen that changes the course of our daily routine.

I don’t think I’ve failed, I’ve just lost track of the healthier lifestyle that was making me feel noticeably better. So here I am writing things out, to hopefully connect with you all on a level of understanding.

Maybe you are feeling the blah. Uninspired, low energy and making excuses for yourself. Here’s my little motivation to say, nothing changes unless you do. If you want change BE THE CHANGE.

At least that’s what I’ve been telling myself on repeat this week, in hopes to snap out of it.

  • It’s been six years since we lost our good friend, to me he was very much like a brother. Genuine, caring, funny, and such a family guy. This weekend we took time to remember. My heart feels heavy, I’ve never been good with words during times of grief but this weekend encouraged me that lots of words aren’t always needed. Our actions and the intentional moments mean so much. #domliveson
  • He makes me smile, the real full mouth all the teeth smile.

  • It's a crazy thing what can happen when you start doing the things you love but also might scare you. I've been creating content on this space for five years as this past year has presented some of the most incredible opportunities. This latest one with @coquitlamcentre has been so fun! Excited to share that I am their next and final 'Girl In Focus' -- head over to their feed to see the first video that was created.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Also, sending a big kiss out there for all of you, for being encouraging, inspiring and simply for just being you. If there's something on your heart that you have been wanting to start, but you feel like you don't know how.. maybe you are scared.. maybe you are worried of judgement. Trust me, it's worth putting all that aside and just trying. Just starting. Because in all honesty, starting is always the hardest part.⁠⠀

PS my outfit is from @rw_co, shoes @callitspring at @coquitlamcentre — I couldn’t leave without them! #girlinfocus #workingit #stylebyCQC
  • Who snacks more, you or the kids?
.
I used to think it was the kids, but since getting Invisalign I've realized more and more how much I love snacking, as I am willing to take my liners in and out every time. #worthit

A new snack I've been trying out from @patiencefruitco are their Active Blends, my favourite blend being the Seasalt & Pepper. Check out my stories to see all three flavours. *sponsored #patiencefruitco
