5 Golden Rings Holiday Party

Last Thursday was my holiday party at work.  We've been following the 12 Days of Christmas for our themes and this year was 5 Golden Rings.
I made these Golden Rings with styrofoam wreath form from the Dollar Tree, spray painted gold.  Cody drilled a pilot hole in them for me and then I made the hole a little bigger.  I used disposable wine glasses from DT that went through the hole and held the ring upright.  A few gold poinsettias, an electric tealight and some sparkly dangles finished them off.  I loved this simple and cheap centerpiece so much! 
For some other last minute centerpieces, I used a gold charger with a small wreath and an electric candle. We used gold mercury glass candles on all of the tables with more tealights. 
The mantle was decorated with 5 wreaths (5 Golden Rings) that were decorated in gold.  We put gold overlays over the white tablecloths and even though I am not a fan of gold, this was a beautiful holiday party! 
I created the menu and made sure that everything was round in shape.  Shrimp cocktail ring, spinach and artichoke pinwheels, kielbasa coins wrapped in pastry, mac and cheese cups, firecracker chicken meatballs, veggie and cheese wreath, garlic rolls and a honeycrisp salad ring.  For dessert we had apple crisp cups and peppermint brownie bites.  Everyone raved about the food! 
Last years theme was 4 Calling Birds and I created a Woodland theme to go with it.  Instead of calling birds, I used Cardinals.  I created birch branches using empty wrapping paper and paper towel rolls and the centerpieces were tin buckets with burlap, red ribbon and an icy nest.  
Our menu was woodland themed deliciousness!
The theme for 2015 was 3 French Hens.  I created centerpieces using empty wine bottles.  I glittered cardstock Eiffel Towers and Fleur de lis that I attached to the bottle with some wintry greenery.  They were placed in the middle of an icy wreath.   
Our menu was French inspired and we even had macaroons for dessert. 
2014 was my first year working in this department and the theme was 2 Turtle Doves.  This time is was Winter Wonderland inspired and this is the only picture I can find from my centerpieces.  
Next year we will go with 6 Geese a-Laying.  If you have any ideas for me for that, please let me know!
