Everyone loves a fun, themed get together, ++ what better way to get into the spirit than with your CHAARG girls! Here are our favorite ways to throw the perfect CHAARGmas get-together —
What’s a party without some dessert?! Megpies are one of our fave goodies right now. These grab+go pastries are the perfect treat for any celebration. Baked in Brooklyn, these mini pies are the size of your hands + full of yummy fillings from Anarchy in a Jar. No matter how delicious, the jams are always made with all-natural ingredients + no extra preservatives. They’re made in small batches so they stay delicous + fresh! Trust us — they are incredible! [My mouth is watering just thinking about them ; )].
If you’re lucky + living in New York, you can find them at many specialty shops + markets. If not, you might have already seen them at your local Starbucks, available in flavas like strawberry, cinnamon, + chocolate. Megpies are high-quality desserts with high-quality deliciousness : ) — perfect for your CHAARGmas party!
A book exchange is not only an awesome way to give a meaningful gift, it’s a great way to get to know your bolt babes better. A fun idea for you + your CHAARGies is to each bring a book [that you’ve read already, of course] ++ trade up! This can be Secret Santa//White Elephant style exchange, or you could draw out of a hat! This gives your guests a chance to expand their reading without spending a dime.
While creating those amazing memories, you need a way to remember it all. Create your own DIY photo booth! Choose a spot in your party space + hang a fun banner to spice up the background. Pick up a few holiday-themed decorations from the dollar spot at Target or your local craft store + BOOM — you’ve got tons of Insta-worthy pictures just waiting to be taken! Don’t forget the goofy glasses, red + green feather boas + Christmas lights while you throw up the bolt — always #inCHAARG ; )
The holidays bring out the happiest moments for many… ++ usually the silliest : ) Create fun memories with your guests by leading a holiday-themed game! This loosens up your guests + is sure to get everyone talking + mingling. It’s a great way to get to know someone on a different level + can facilitate some fun conversation!
GIVE A RECIPE, GET A RECIPE
The key to our hearts — CHAARG + good food! Have everyone print out their favorite recipe on cards + bring enough for everyone. Try all sweet treats or assign different courses to different guests — such as drinks, appetizers, meals + desserts — so that everyone gets a little of everything. This is fun, free, easy + you get to leave with tons of new dishes to try! Bonus if you have your guests bring samples : )
CHRISTMAS SWEATER CONTEST
[Ugly] Christmas sweaters are an oldie, but a goodie ; ) Challenge your guests to come dressed in their most fun holiday attire, have a mini-fashion show + give a fun little prize to the winner — maybe this bolt ring from the CHAARG shop!
This is a time to have fun, relax + be thankful for all of the amazing people in your life. Grab your girls ++ get planning!
