    Home for the Holidays: Four Locally Made Christmas Shoots to Inspire Holiday Cheer!

    We'd usually be spending this time of year busy with holiday parties and fun winter events! With all of those dreams gone out the window, we've been thinking how we can make our at home Christmas celebrations just as special as the ones we'd normally be taking part in.

    Let us take you through four mini celebrations inspired by a winter together at home! If you're looking to put a twist on old traditions, create new ones, or just want to really go for it this season, we hope these get you into the Christmas Spirit!

    Make sure to take a look at all of the local businesses mentioned in the beginning of each shoot! If you're looking for some sweet Christmas goodies from us this season, you can click HERE to check out our selection!

    Traditional with a Twist: Writing Letters to Santa and Sipping on Cotton Candy Hot Chocolates

    Candy: Sugar Cube YYC

    Clothing: Honey Dew Shop

    Party Supplies: A Little Confetti Shop

    Cookies: Black Dog Bakery

    Jewelry: Rosie Joan Jewelry

    Clothing: North Star Jerseys

    A full afternoon of winter activities lay ahead for Brittany Kolba and her family! Letters to Santa need to be sent to the post office by December 10th to get to the North Pole in time. It's also a great opportunity to have little ones write letters to Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles and other friends and family who you'd normally be spending the holidays with. 

    The family is decorating cookies from Black Dog Bakery and having some extra fun hot chocolates with sprinkles, Candy Canes, and Gingerbread Cotton Candy! Once this ends, she can kick the kids outside to drop their letters in the postbox and burn off their sugar rush. 

    This fun party supplies from A Little Confetti Shop ties the whole thing together! How often can you coordinate your cookies with your plates?! 

      How would your child put a tub of our special Holiday Cotton Candy to use? Let us know in the comments! Here's our top three guesses!

      • Create a stylish hairstyle for their gingerbread people
      • Let it melt into their Hot Chocolates and stir with a Candy Cane
      • Shove a fistful into their mouth

      The weather in December might get a little frightful so we decided to bring a bit of warmth indoors. With tons of florals from Chic Botanicals and Events, candles, and lots of soft pink and white decor, Simply T Events fooled us into thinking we're in a summer paradise instead of mere feet away from the chilly winter!

       The girls are enjoying some fluffy Strawberry Cotton Candy Puffs. We sell our Cotton Candy Mini Bags in batches of 20 and up but you can grab some Cotton Candy Tubs to really please those in your home with a real sweet tooth!

      Decorations: A Little Confetti Shop

      Baked Goods: Blue Eyed Baker

      Sweets: The Sugar Cube

       

      One of your Christmas traditions may have been to go see The Nutcracker Ballet. While we can't watch it in person this year, there's lots of options for you to stream it from your living room! Why not make it feel more like a night out than a family movie night with a Nutcracker inspired dinner?

      Caitie from Blue Eyed Baker made some delicious treats for the table and we made the table even sweeter with some Baby CandyGrams and Hammonds Candy Canes. Who needs popcorn when you have these goodies?!

      To really make us feel like we're in the Land of the Sugar Plum Fairy, A Little Confetti Shop set the scene with golds, whites and pinks to make us feel like we're in a little wonderland! We love how this turned out and we hope this could inspire a mini "night out" to the theatre for you and your family!
