Theme submitted by Patty, Sayreville, New Jersey
No matter what the weather outside, bring winter indoors with white snowflakes, cozy fireside moments and food to combat cabin fever.
Both adults and children will go wild over a snow cone station. Simply set out shaved ice and a variety of flavors for guests to make their own snow cones. Roasted chestnuts are also wonderful for this theme, and can be placed in bowls throughout the rooms. For a simple winter dish, cook chili in slow cookers and offer toppings like sour cream, cheese, crackers and onions. This is a wonderful way to take off the chill from the snow cones.
- Begin with covering all tables and surfaces with white tablecloths. Then sprinkle faux snow and glitter down the middle of the tables for frozen touch.
- Cut snowflakes from white and blue cardstock to decorate walls, hang from ceilings and adorn tables. This is a great project for kids, and can even be done during the party.
- For a natural touch, find a variety of pine cones to add to the décor. They can stay brown or consider spray painting them silver for a modern twist. You can either scatter them throughout the room or use fishing line to string them into a garland to hang in doorways.
