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.

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.

I created this recipe for a recent post with SodaStream. It is absolutely delicious, we couldn’t resist have a glass or two during our afternoon charcuterie.

I share the recipe over on this Instagram post (coming soon), and do think you should take a peak. The Lemon Ginger mix was from YesChef.ca too!

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.

I adore her work and think that it looks absolutely stunning within our holiday decor. If you are local make sure to check out her page and join an upcoming workshop to get creative with her.

  • “It’s never too early to begin exploring the world”
Whenever I share about our family off on another adventure I’m often asked about what it’s like travelling with three kids. Sometimes it will be comments like “brave mama” or something of the sort. Which I totally understand, it can seem so overwhelming to travel with kids. But I want to encourage you all to not hold back by how tired you might be ... or that you won’t be able to relax as much if your kids weren’t there. Travelling with your kids, seeing new places through their learning eyes is refreshing in itself. Tiring yes, but so so rewarding.
How do you feel about travelling with kids?
  • I made these for Mother’s Day and then decided to keep them
for myself. Ha!

Using my @canoncanada PIXMA Printer and
their restickable paper, I put together a quick and easy DIY that would make a perfect gift for someone.. or for yourself.
Personalized wine bottles!
There are even more DIY ideas at the link in my profile thanks
to Canon and their PIXMA Printers. #Sponsored
  • Favourite bathing suit, new necklace and a counter full of shells. Time to swim ✌🏻// link to swimsuit in stories
  • When mommy bloggers want to take a flower market photo 🤣 #lifewithkids
Thanks for ALL the recommendations for everything to do in Gibson’s and the surrounding area. There are SO MANY awesome locally owned shops we want to discover still. Today started with a 🛥 tour by @sunshinekayaking as we explored along @sunshinecoastbc and the surrounding islands, we grabbed ☕️ at @beachcombercoffee and 🍦 at @mikesplace2003 along with food at @black.bean.cafe #yum !

Explored a little along the 🏖 and then discovered everything within @gibsonspublicmarket — leaving with some 🧀 🥖 🍎 for afternoon snacks. See everything in my stories including some sea creatures from @nsmec 🦐 🐟 🦀 sooo cool!! A quick 🚎 ride home with @bc_transit for a rest before the kids start begging to go for a 🏊‍♂️ 🏊‍♀️... it’s definitely tiring travelling around all day with three kiddos but my mamas some sort of superhero and their eagerness to learn and love for exploring makes it 💫🙌🏻🥰
One more day to #exploreBCbybus — excited to see what’s to come.
  • I’m surprised you can’t see the wrinkles on our bodies from the camera after our three hour swim this afternoon. 
We got up at 630AM to make sure we had enough time to finish packing 🤦🏼‍♀️ and drive out to catch our @bcferries — after a quick ⛴ ride over we all hopped on the @bc_transit city 🚎 into Gibson’s and then further into Sechelt ... where we became water prunes. 🏊 
I’ve been asked to share an article for @bc_transit on our experience as we #exploreBCbybus 🚎 — the next few days I’ll be sharing on my Stories some of the places we explore too! I’d love to hear your recommendations on places to eat, thanks to a lovely follower for suggesting dinner at 🍔 @pklsburgers, we are pleasantly stuffed.

Where should we go next?? 🌊 ☀️ We’ll be around Gibson’s and Sechelt the next two days.

Also, just gotta add... my mom makes a pretty great #InstagramGrammy 🙌🏻🥰🤣
  • You don’t need to birth a child to be a mama. I don’t talk about being a step-mama very often, mostly because overall it doesn’t feel any different then being a mama to the kiddos I birthed. Everyone’s journey to motherhood looks and feels different, some may seem easier but each unique with their own challenges. Wherever you are in your motherhood journey today, I want to say that you are loved, you are appreciated and you are exactly what the child you are mothering needs.
