My studio Christmas recital was this past weekend and it went extremely well! I was very proud of all my students!
After each recital, I always have a reception. I provide the punch/coffee and all the paper goods. Each family in my studio brings a goodie to share. It's also a night that I give each of my students a Christmas gift so I thought I would share with you what I did this year.
On December 26th last year (yes I bravely went out to check out the sales with the girls in my family and a very dear friend). While were out, I found these adorable bells for half price!
With a bit of wire and some beads I had on hand, here's a look at how they came out!
And the response? They loved them! They loved their name on the ornaments, the fact that they were bells and were very excited to hang them on their trees!
As a side note, I did give my older teens iTunes gift cards which were a bit more expensive obviously, but even those don't need to be much to make teens happy!
I hope this helps give you ideas if you give out gifts as well. Oh...and don't forget to check out those sales on the 26th!
