Today, I’m so excited to share with you my final idea on “How To Host A Chocolate Holiday Party”! I started the fete off by doing a very tasteful Chocolate Tasting Station. Then I created a Chocolate Centerpiece that is fun, pretty and effortless. And now, for Part 3, I wanted to share with you the idea of making your guests some delectable DIY Truffle-Pop Place Cards – that doubles up as party favors! Yup, twice the fun!

I think by adding this final touch, it will create a party that is not only thoughtfully put together, but also help spark a little joy even long after your guests leave the party.

Since you’ve all been sharing your favorite chocolate box with me, I guess it’s only fair that I share mine. My favorite, no doubt, is the GODIVA Signature Truffles! This gift box comes in 12, 24, or 36 pieces. I love the rich flavors and the beautiful assortment, which comes in milk and dark chocolate with a touch of chic and modern flair. My mouth waters the moment I open up that box. :)

Since the holidays is all about giving and sharing your favorite things, I thought these Truffle-Pop Place Cards will do just that. You can share your favorite chocolate as a chic tabletop decor, while guests can also take some home to savor as party favors. Isn’t that just simple and sweet?

I love that this idea, again, is so effortless, and you don’t need to spend a lot to make an impression. Here’s what I used and how I did it:

MATERIAL

// Place cardsI like getting the ones with heavier stock like the ones I found from Paper Source. 

// Lollipop Sticks + Wrapping Kit

// GODIVA Signature Truffles. You may purchase your box on their online store or their in-store boutique. 

// Washi tape

// Metallic Sharpie

Optional 

// Holiday stamp + Ink pad. Since I’m not very good at drawing art, I thought using a stamp would add a nice decorative touch.

// 1/4″ Ribbon. I think this gives it a special touch to wrapping the party favors especially for the holidays.

STEPS

1. Decorate your place cards with a stamp and write names.

2. For the lollipop sticks, I created a color block effect by rolling the top part of the stick on a gold ink pad. You can easily do this by coloring with a Sharpie too.

3. Put the place card about half way down the stick and use tape to keep it in place. Since the guests around the table will see the back of the place cards, be sure to use a pretty washi tape!

4. Hold a GODIVA truffle in one hand, and firmly push the lollipop stick on the top of the truffle with the other hand. *Just remember not the bottom of the truffle as it has a flat surface and that’s where it will stand.*

5. To make it into a party favor, simply put the truffle pop into a clear bag and tie it in a ribbon. You may also leave the clear bags and precut ribbons out for your guests so if they decide to save their truffle-pop for later, they can wrap it up and take it home with them!

So, there it is! My last but not least, DIY entertaining idea, all centered around my favorite GODIVA chocolate! If you didn’t get a chance to check out Part 1 and Part 2, be sure to do that!

I hope I’ve inspired you this season to throw a chic chocolate themed party. There’s no reason why to hide that chocolate box in the cupboard and not share with the people you love! Open up your favorite box and have the happiest and merriest holidays of all!

Thank you all so much for tuning in! I had the most fun creating these ideas for you. I really hope you enjoyed and find it helpful!

Stay tuned as I will announce the winner to the $250 GODIVAJoy Giveaway on this post after 12/24!
