Get Crafty With Driscoll’s Berries This Holiday Season!

8 Dec

20121208-112056.jpgHoliday parties have started and ideas for decorating and entertaining are always on my mind.  My girls love berries but I have never thought about using them for decorating.  Just before Thanksgiving I had the opportunity to attend a Driscoll’s Berry crafting event with my youngest daughter to jump-start the Holiday season with ideas for entertaining. Before crafting began, guests ate a yummy brunch. The menu included some of these “berry” delicious recipes:

Melissa Klein, Editor of Celebrations.com, led a Berry Tree craft session for adults after brunch.  The tree was very easy to make and my daughter periodically took a break from her craft to help me.   The Berry Tree makes a bright and beautiful centerpiece for a holiday party or dinner.  Melissa also suggested stringing Driscoll’s blueberries to make a garland to add to the tree.  Click here for directions to make a Berry Tree for your next Holiday gathering.

While adults were making trees, the kids were making adorable Rudolph cupcakes.  All you need is a chocolate frosted cupcake, red m&m’s, sugar eyes, pretzels, melted chocolate to hold antlers, eyes and nose in place and a chocolate covered Driscoll’s strawberry for the head.  A fun activity to do with your child(ren) and their friends to bring to a holiday bake-sale or a kids holiday party.
