There’s something so nostalgic about the vintage Santa paintings and old signs of Santa drinking a Coca-Cola by the Christmas tree that they inspired me to create a vintage Santa party. I wanted to create a party for family that shows how I much I love them and care for them, and to thank them for being so important in my life.
Coca-Cola at Walmart supports the non-profit organization One Warm Coat in their mission to donate half a million free coats this holiday season. I LOVE what a difference this will make in the lives of others and was so inspired that I donated to One Warm Coat too. It was easy, took only about a minute to do, and is a good way to support such a great cause in the spirit of giving this holiday season.
Vintage Santa Party
To get ready for my vintage Santa party, I first picked up a Cocoa-Cola 2 liter, a 1/2 liter 6-pack, and a 6 pack of the glass bottles at Walmart.
I couldn’t resist those glass bottles because there on the front of the label and box packaging was the classic, vintage Santa that I love!
I found an amazing vintage Santa stand-up sign that I knew would be perfect for the party.
I added a small Christmas tree, then hung small sweater/coat ornaments that I was SO excited to find!
Aren’t they perfect for supporting the One Warm Coat initiative with Coca-Cola at Walmart? Presents were carefully tucked underneath the tree for my family members. I’m so grateful for each of them and wanted to layer on love for them.
Above Santa’s head is a pretty garland with mini red stocking hung with care, and filled with candy canes, Santa candy tube treats, and more.
I ordered an amazing personalized Santa bag for the family that fit in so well right next to Santa. A vintage style wooden winter sled was the perfect table for the glass Coca-Cola bottles. The other Coca-Cola bottles that I bought were there too next to Santa.
Santa’s belt boxes were filled with treats for all and placed around the party table.
I made some Santa’s whiskers and mustache suckers out of white chocolate, then placed them inside a glass mason jar filled with green jelly beans to hold them up and add some more fun Christmas color to the table.
Three different types of red, green, and white candy filled three Christmas tree-shaped serving dishes.
I also made some adorable Santa’s belt treat cups that were SO easy! Follow along below to see how to make them….
Santa’s Belt Treat Cups
- Red cups
- Black card stock
- Gold card stock
- Glue gun
Step 1. Cut a strip of black paper. Cut a rectangle from the gold paper that is slightly taller than the black strip. Use scissors to cut out a rectangle in the middle to create the belt buckle.
Step 2. Glue the belt buckle to the black belt strip, then glue the black belt to the middle of the red cup.
Step 3. Fill the cup with treats and give away. You can give the treats to those at your party, or you can instruct those at the party that these were for them to give away to someone else to keep the giving going!
Aren’t they fun? It just doesn’t get much simpler than these cute treat cups.
I hope you enjoyed our vintage Santa party and got a few ideas on creating your own holiday party and how to help others this season.
