Uncategorized // Holiday Favors + Free Printables + Giveaway with QVC

Are you ready to seal the deal to be the hostess with the mostess? Whether you are hosting a holiday dinner at your home or attending a holiday party, we are prepared to set you up for success.  Right now free printables are all the talk. I especially love how printables give you the opportunity to communicate a positive message.  Because QVC‘s holiday motto is “All the Joy, None of the Craziness,” we came up with this festive printable tag that will pass on the joy to loved ones. I am so excited to tell you that we are sharing these printables, which are available for free download in three different sizes, to suit any of your holiday needs.


First up I created a duo-stacked holiday favor including fun holiday treats from QVC.  We included Cheryl’s Brownie Assortment and Harry London Signature Holiday Truffles inside the boxes.  I love the square presentation of the brownies.  I also admire the assortment of color and delicious flavors inside the Harry London Signature Holiday Truffles: eggnog, gingerbread, cinnamon spice, pumpkin pie, and milk and dark chocolate. It doesn’t get much more festive than that! I lined each box with a chevron print party favor bag, attached each box to one another, and wrapped them with twine. Then I attached a printable tag and a festive bow. The entire duo-stacked favor boxes took only four minutes to assemble. What a simple way to spread joy!


Are you attending a holiday party and need a fabulous hostess gift to show your appreciation?  Look no further than QVC’s Junior’s Chocolate Dream Layered Cake. This box of cake is literally the whole package.  It even arrives in this festive red and white striped box.  All I did was tie twine on top, attach a printable, and add a festive bow.  This literally only took two minutes to assemble.


In the spirit of QVC‘s holiday 2012 motto, “All the Joy, None of the Craziness,” these fabulous entertaining ideas are sure to pass on the positive energyI printed all printables on photo glossy paper to achieve the highest quality resolution.  To add a glittery background, I glued each printable onto glitter paper, which can be found at your local craft store, and then I cut each printable out in the shape of a tag.

  38. Julie P November 8, 2012 at 9:42 am #

    I add the joy by making doubles of everything and graciously telling my husband to please go with his children to his mom’s and then the girls other grandparents for the day. Being the second wife isn’t easy but since the girls lost their mom as teens I feel he should go. So I go be with my family and he goes with his. We do manage to spend Christmas Eve together and that is what matters to me, on top of Everyone being happy. Spending time with those that you love is the most important.

    Thank you fo sharing the printable!

  40. Donna Ingalls November 8, 2012 at 2:07 pm #

    I add joy to my holidays to make time to give to the less fortunate. I will be donating to Hurricane Sandy victims this year. This puts everything in perspective.
    Spending time with family and friends is what brings me joy over the holidays too.

  41. Susan M. November 8, 2012 at 2:24 pm #

    Enjoying the fun from the perspective of my 2 and 4 year olds. It’s easy to just look at the holidays from the adult perspective and forget the magic seen by the child’s eye. :)

  42. pam douglas November 8, 2012 at 4:08 pm #

  43. Ruth Gannon November 8, 2012 at 4:19 pm #

    I add joy to my holidays by spending them with my family and friends. I love watching the joy on the faces of my grandchildren when they see what Santa has brought them. This year will be an even more special because we all survived Sandy, and hopefully we can bring some of ourselves to those in need.

  44. Kathy S November 8, 2012 at 6:05 pm #

    12 Days of Xmas tradition I started with my son is the highlight of my Xmas season, including a Xmas eve scavenger hunt with the family, and of course dinner, family time, and blessed to receive gifts on Christmas day. I have something new for Xmas eve this year, and very excited!

  53. Danae November 8, 2012 at 9:29 pm #

    I add joy to the holidays by hosting Thanksgiving & Christmas dinner & having each guest bring a side dish or dessert that is special or nostalgic to their holiday memories. This way no one feels homesick or like they’ve missed out on their family traditions. This non-traditional approach makes my guests feel at ease and takes the burden of the day off of everyone. it also makes them feel like they have contributed to making the day extra special.

  54. mindy November 8, 2012 at 9:57 pm #

    The added joy of the holidays in our house is baking/cooking with my mom & daughter & following our traditions:)

  57. vickie November 9, 2012 at 1:58 am #

    Like so many others have stated, and as a true generation Southener I/we add Christmas joy to our holiday’s with great traditional food! We still go out and get a real tree and decorate to classic Christmas music (antiquated to some I think). The best part is just sharing with friends and families…making memories to pass on and remember those who have gone on too. A tradition my mother started over 30 years ago is to give each of us a special Hallmark dated ornament…this is my most anticipated and cherished gift of all each year.

  58. Peggy November 9, 2012 at 6:22 am #

    I add to the joy by printing out coupons for services for friends (shovel the snow, mow the lawn etc.).

  59. Mayra Rivera November 9, 2012 at 8:09 am #
