The Partiologist: North Pole Place Cards!

North Pole Place Cards!

Because I won't be hosting Christmas dinner this year and I wanted to make place cards, I decided the perfect setting would be at the dinner Santa is hosting for his reindeer.  You didn't know Santa hosted a dinner party did you?  How else did you think the reindeer have all that energy to fly through the sky?
This year they're going to be flying high when they see how cute their place cards are.  And if you are hosting Christmas dinner, you can use your guests names.  Or let them pretend they are the reindeer...I would want to be a reindeer, so from now on please call me Vixen.
Santa's North Pole Place Cards!
I know there aren't many days before Christmas, which is why you need to get started on these NOW.
And it would make Santa proud.

Plus, what else do you have to do?
Did you notice someone's place card is missing?
Well, you see, Mrs. Claus is busy in the kitchen preparing the meal. 
She has no time to sit at the dinner table, sound familiar?
Here's why~

I (She) decided to make these cookies chocolate.

And used a small Altoid container for the cutter.

Plenty of those containers laying around with all that reindeer breath going on.

Flooded each cookie with red icing.

Once the red icing is completely dry, pipe on a bit of white across the top for the snow.

Sprinkle with white sanding sugar.

Turn the cookie over and brush off the excess.

Fill a  pastry bag with a #2 round decorating tip.

Add the reindeer names (or your Christmas guests names) to the cookies.

Now the work begins.

You'll need candy cane sticks.

Jumbo green gumballs.

Bright white candy melts.

Melt some of the candy melts.

Add a bit of the white chocolate to the top of the candy stick.

Hold in place until dry.

Place in a small bowl filled with sugar and refrigerate.

Making sure the candy melt is completely hard.

Add a glop of candy melts to the back of a cookie.

Place the candy stick in the candy melts and let dry.

Also place in refrigerator to make sure it is solid.

On a sheet of wax paper, spoon out some of the candy melts.

When the candy is just about to set, add the north pole cookie stick.

Hold in place until dry.  Don't shake.

Remember, wait until the melted candy is almost dry before adding the cookie pole or you'll be holding it in place for quite a while. 

Ask me how I know.

Make the red fondant bow with a mold and add to the top of the sign.

Cue the Sleigh Bells!
