Reindeer Labels

The girls were under the weather yesterday, and we have taken stock in Puffs Plus.  They are already on the mend, thank goodness, so we should be back to business in no time. 

A couple things promised.  Feel free to print these labels if you are doing a reindeer food buffet this year.  For last year's North Pole party, I arranged the ingredients on a low table, accessible for kids.  We used inexpensive disposable bread pans to hold everything, and the kids were each given a small jam jar to make their reindeer food.  The ingredients are mostly self-explanatory other than "flying powder."  Of course, that's a magical ingredient, but I can tell you that it looks like flour.

I included a few blank labels if you'd like to create a new concoction. You should be able to click on the labels (there are two sheets), scroll over the photo in Photobucket, and "File" will appear.  From there, you can dowload original file).

Also, while Santa controls the elves that may or may not show up at your party, I've been told Party City has elf costumes this time of year for elves who show up without proper attire. 

I'm working on making things a bit more sharable for you. In the meantime, have a wonderful weekend!

So excited to have these. I started hanging lights in our sunroom and the party is two weeks away lol. Hope you share where you got the cool red and white striped paper leading up to your front door last year - it was the coolest entrance to everything!

We just had a TOTAL Ellie Christmas photo fail (she wanted to play with toys, NOT be wrapped in Christmas lights) so this was a perfect pick-me-up!

I loved your idea of the party and I'd like to do something similar this year; unfortunately kids in my family are more like vikings than like Santa's elves, so I think they'd probably throw everything on the ground, and someone would probably fall and... no, I don't really want to think about it.

Love this. Thanks for reminding me to make the most of childhood. We all need more magic, don't we?

THanks for this. Am planning to "knock it off" for our little girls on the 22nd. Maybe with a different twist? No scavenger hunt...I'm afraid it will be too cold! Looking forward to more tips and inspiration! And I hope the girls feel better!

i've been waking up early these days (stressing about our remodelling project and hoping we'll be settled by xmas)...and, without even having it on my mind at all i can feel the holidays coming. it's weird! i get up in the almost-dark, look out the window, and suddenly that holiday feeling comes upon me as if to say, "hey, chill out and get cozy - magical times are in store."

Hey, I recognise that reindeer! When I saw your labels I thought it looked familiar...then I checked - it's the same reindeer I used for our own North Pole Party... that was TOTALLY copied from your North Pole Party! Except ours had an Aussie flavour, if you remember from the pics I sent :) Glad to see it being used here, it's such a CUTE little reindeer - and I LOVE your labels x

Hi. I'm a reader always/commenter never ;) but want to thank you for sharing your beautiful stories and pics. I had been in survival mode parenting for years just trying to stay afloat and since finding your blog, I have totally been inspired to get my creative momma groove back on (I knew she was in there somewhere under the caked on baby peas). Much love to you and your darling family....

What a beautiful, beautiful party.

I am concerned about one thing. Could you perhaps substitute colored paper confetti for glitter, and advertise this choice? There are also beautifully colored red and black rices that might be good alternatives. Birds eat glitter, and it makes them sick or kills them. I love birds and it is an important part of our responsibility to the earth to help protect their world. Glitter should always be disposed of in closed trash bags.

I hope you and the girls have an absolutely amazing time . .. I can't wait to see the pictures.

Sincerely yours,

an avid reader

OMG, I cannot wait until my daughter is old enough for a party like this! And I LOVE the gluten free bread crumbs for Comet! My husband has Celiac, so my family can truly appreciate that! LOVE!

I love these labels and they would be perfect for my christmas party. I am having a difficult time trying to print from home using photobucket. Any hints?
