Make a Christmas Gift Basket - Win the Plates and Napkins!

Is it really Thanksgiving next week? I cannot believe it!

When these CUTE polka dot red-and-green Christmas plates, cups and napkins arrived on my doorstep, it started to feel more like the holidays!

See my complete Polka Dot Christmas Party paper goods collection now in stock at Polka Dot Market.

I am thinking these holiday paper plates and napkins will add the perfect touch to gift baskets I'm making for our new neighbors and my daughters' teachers. (Actually WE are the new neighbors, but giving a homemade treat is a great way to meet the folks across the street!)

I have not decided which homemade goodies we will be making, but there are sure a TON of ideas, free printables and recipes out there in blogland this year. I am not even going to try to top their lists, so enjoy their hard work - to make your holiday planning and gift-giving a little easier!
