I have been making herb butter and Cranberry orange butter to give as neighbor gifts this year and I am so happy with how they have turned out. I didn't have to bake a million cookies and I was looking for something savory and unique and this was the perfect thing!
The tags and baking twine just finish the cute butter logs off perfectly. You can find these super cute gift tags on Lia Griffith blog she has sooo many cute things to download and print at home you really should check out her blog! These tags are on a PDF that allows you to change the names on the to and from!! They are hosted on world label ready to edit and print off from a PDF file how nice is that!
The herb and cranberry orange butter are just about the easiest things to make in your Cuisinart!
I used butter from Costco because they had the best price on butter. I used 4 sticks at once in my Cuisinart mixed with fresh herbs. I used about 1/4 cup chopped Thyme and Rosemary but you can use whatever combination you like. You can't go wrong with fresh herbs of any combination.
For the Cranberry Orange butter I used about 1/2 cup or more of fresh cranberries, 1 tsp of orange rind, 1 Tbsp orange juice, 1/4 cup of powdered sugar and mixed it in the cuisinart and it turned the pretty pink color.
You can watch my video of how to make the perfect sized little butter logs and watch until the end and see my blooper reel....
just keeping it real!

I love this cute napkin fold for Christmas! You may have seen it on my Winter wonderland tablescape that I did last week...it just makes the place setting look a little more special.
I start with a square napkin
Fold in half
fold in half again to make a square
You will end up with a triangle that has layers
Next...flip over and fold each side of the triangle to the opposite side one over the other.
It becomes a bundle.
Flip over once again so you can see the layers of the Christmas tree.
Fold in each point of the layers underneath each other
Once all the points are folded inside you are done!
You can add a candy cane or a small chocolate for an "ornament" for your guests.
Here is my quick fast tutorial of the Christmas tree napkin fold
Hope you use this fun napkin fold this Christmas!

I love using bright colors like lime green, red, pink and turquoise at Christmas!
I set this tablescape using my rattan chargers from Ikea...best deal around I think they are $3.99 ea..cheapest ones I have seen mixed with my Ikea white dinner plates.
I have had the lime green and red Christmas salad plates for years..I bought them when we lived in Texas and I just LOVE them! I folded red cloth napkin into a Christmas tree and placed a candy cane on top. Tutorial for Christmas tree fold on blog tomorrow. Green goblets were from Pier 1 a few years ago that I bought on clearance for $1.99 ea!! They work all year long for me.
I used fresh pieces of garland strung through my chandelier and hung a few ornaments from the chandy as well.
The centerpiece was quite simple and faux green wreath with a small Christmas tree
My talented daughter Madeline chalked this adorable Walking in a winter wonderland snowman for me! I wish I could write well but alas not my talent.

I have had so much fun making these adorable
Christmas Cupcake toothpicks this year!
I made some for my Niece's Unicorn and Mermaid baby shower! I will show that shower tomorrow it really turned out amazingly cute!
I actually made these for my sisters Craft Fair she is going to!
I love how they turned out in the pastel pink, green gold and red.
Even the girl at the UPS store wanted to buy some when I went to ship them to my sister!
I am thinking of starting to sell them myself.....what would you be willing to purchase a set of 12 for?
If you don't have Cricut machine you really ought to ask Santa for one this year they are AMAZING!
