Where did the month of October go ??!! Now we are only a few weeks from Thanksgiving and then the down hill slide into Christmas!!!! I love this time of year but hate how fast everything moves.
Each year I have a Girlfriend Christmas Party. I have been doing this party for many years.
Each year I have all my girlfriends come to my home on the first Friday of December to celebrate our friendship.
The idea of the party is each girl brings a girlfriend exchange gift where the proceeds had to benefit a charity in some way. The gifts the girls come up with each year are just amazing. The stories shared about why they chose their particular charity is so touching and up lifting.
The best gifts are given from the heart and it is even more special when your gift not only benefits a dear friend at the party but also helps someone else too.
Each girl wears her comfy Christmas jammies and we eat, drink and have a great time all together. Let's face it eating, drinking, laughing and having fun must be done in comfy jammies!!!

The past few years I have been doing walking tacos as one of my appetizers.
Have you ever had walking tacos? They are a crowd pleaser and yummy. So today I am going to share with you my walking taco preparation and a sweet treat idea too.
Walking Tacos are easy to do if you have a large crowd or small. Perfect for everyone and fun.
You take the small lunch size Fritos or Dorito bags and they become the base for your walking tacos.
I will set up a taco bar with chicken and beef taco fillings and several taco toppings.
Everyone gets a taco bag and then can fill it with their desired filling and toppings and you can walk and talk and have fun as you eat your taco.
Here is how I give the walking taco Frito bags a little more stability and fun.
|Here are some of the supplies I got to put my walking taco boxes together.|
|Found these cute reindeer tags at Home Goods to tie off my napkins and forks.|
|Easy Peasy to do. Wrap the fork up in the napkins and tie off with the reindeer tags.|
|So I glued the tags onto the front of the white boxes and then put in the Frito's and reindeer forks and napkins. All together and ready for the Taco Bar.|
|I put them into a white gift box that I will set on the Taco Bar. I will set this at the beginning of my taco bar fixins! That is it. Fun and easy and a real crowd pleaser. You can find lots of great ideas and recipes for Walking Taco's on Pinterest.|
Every year I have some kind of sweet treat for each girl to enjoy at the party or take home.
|Found these sweet little snack bag kits at the dollar bins at Target. Gotta love those dollar racks at Target.|
|Each kit came with heavy lined bakery treat bags, white doilies, and a tag that says So Very Thankful for Sweet Friends Like You.|
|So I just glued each of the bags with the doily and tag. Easy Peasy!!!|
|I usually do cupcakes for desert so these sweet bags will be nice for each girl to take home a sweet treat. Nothing like having a cupcake roader for the trip home from a party!|
|I found these cute napkins at Home Goods.|
This is one of my favorite sayings and so wonderful for my bff's at the party.
Just a few of the ideas I have gotten done for the girlfriend party. I will be working on some favors and fun party ideas that I will be sharing with you soon.
Are you thinking about the upcoming holidays and fun things to do for get togethers?
The time will fly with list making, decorating, shopping, and baking. I love this time of year. So much fun to get ready to share the love of family and friendships.
Have a great new week ahead.
