A Kitschy DIY Holiday

G&F x The Cakegirls

There is nothing quite like classic holiday traditions that can unite a party. Whether it is your grandmother’s secret cookie recipe or your mom watching A Christmas Story on TV while she wraps the final presents, those little nostalgic moments are what really make the season. And Goshdarnit!, we want some of our own here at G&F! To make it happen, we teamed up with our friends at The Cakegirls who helped us sweeten up some new (tasty) holiday traditions. Set in a vintage kitchen, we’re cooking up 1950’s treats that are sure to be crowd pleasers for your next Holiday affair. From a delicious—but NOT nutritious—Peppermintini cocktail rimmed in crushed mint candies to dressing up Ho Hos as charming yule logs, we’ve got simple DIY’s that will surely be holiday classics for years to come. Want to go over-the-top this season? Try your hand at the Ribbon Candy Cake or our handmade peppermint bowls and swizzle sticks.

Watch our DIY videos and create your own 50’s-inspired Holiday. Knock yourself out, Doris Day.
