How the Grinch Stole Christmas Themed Night!!!

How the Grinch Stole Christmas Themed Night!!!




I was excited to find this idea on Pinterest and then I added my own twist.  I made a menu, sign, place cards, and used Red & Green paper goods.  I had a Grinch Activity Book I found last year after Christmas to make my table complete!!!


I downloaded the Grinch Font and found Grinch Clip Art to Create a sign... Then Made A Menu



Table Setting:



Food:
Who Pudding, Rare Roast Beast (Ham), Who Hash (Hash Recipe), & Grinch Punch (I added cherries and the syrup which made it pink so then I added green sugar sprinkles)


Then I "Grinched" some photos for fun!!!




We had a BLAST with Dinner and then we watched How the Grinch Stole Christmas and did some activities from the Grinch Activity Books.  This was how we spent the 5th day of our Christmas Activities...  This was my first Grinch Themed Dinner and now it will be added to our activities for years to come.

Rare Roast Beast: We just did a Glazed Ham, but you can make any meat or main course...

Here is a link to my menu, table sign, and table tents:

  1. How cute! Every year at Christmas, my adult brothers alway call my Prime Rib roast "Rare Roast Beast." I'll have to dress up one of our Christmas tables next year (we have more than one for our family gatherings.) Thanks for sharing your ideas.

  3. It is the Who Pudding. The recipe is linked above. It was easy to make. I put the mini m&m's on top. Kids loved it. We had a great time. This year I am doing the same theme night and will try to go a little more over the top.

  7. I love this!! What a wonderful idea to kick off the season. I am going to surprise my family with "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" theme night . I was wondering where you downloaded your font - it is awesome.
    Thank-you,

  9. Hi Aimee

    My name is Sammi and I wanted to write you a short note about this post. I found it through Pinterest, and I think ​the ideas look super fun! I am brand new to the blogging world, and the learning curve is HUGE! I want to be sure that I do things the proper way, because I know how important it is to earn the respect and friendship of other bloggers. My best friend and I have called our blog Grounded & Surrounded and it is about all things “Healthy! Heart, Home & Habits.”

    I have decided to do a regular series on our blog called “Pinspiration”, and this article will be coming out on Monday December 15th. I have included your article as one of 5 Fun Christmas Traditions and only included an image from the post and why I loved it, people will have to come to your blog for all the details. I wanted to check with you before I publish to make sure that this is okay with you. You can preview the article at this link:

    Thank you so much for your time and I look forward to getting to know you better through your blog.
