Let it Snow Holiday Party
Let it Snow Holiday Party Details:
This is what Andressa shared about the party- “A snowman party is the perfect theme to kick off the Holiday festivities. For this party set up, I was looking for a cozy atmosphere that only the holidays can bring. With a touch of modern & rustic feel, I set up fun & functional stations so the adults and the kids could have a wonderful time sipping hot cocoa, enjoying delicious sweets and doing some craft!
I was excited to finally incorporate the adorable Snowman cake design by Miso Bakes I saw a long time ago via The Cake Blog.
Winter Holiday Theme
Josephine Rees, a beautiful and talented San Antonio lifestyle/food blogger was able to bring this adorable idea to life. I really wanted the cake to look like Miso Bakes’ creation but I also wanted to add our own spin. Once Josephine delivered her masterpiece, I added tree branches for a unique and realistic touch. I used a sled as the cake display to really carry on the winter holiday theme.
In addition to the eye-catching Snowman cake, I incorporated adorable decorated themed cookies designed by Blue Sugar Cookie & Co. and vanilla cupcakes I simply sprinkled with coconut flakes for a winter feel.
My plan was also to incorporate mini bites the guests could enjoy while mingling, but I didn’t want to overcrowd the dessert table with lots of platters and cake stands. I had the idea of displaying the mini sweets like a charcuterie board, but with Holiday sweet bites instead. I was so pleased with how it turned out!
Giant glittered snowflakes made the perfect backdrop. A beautiful flocked Christmas tree and holiday garland were the perfect finishing touches to the dessert station.
As much as I love paper supplies, I love to get the ‘fancy’ plates out of the cabinets for our little special guests from time to time. I found adorable mini snowman dessert plates, which made the perfect addition to the kids’ table. For a festive touch, I incorporated Christmas bulbs, candy canes, and glittered snowflakes throughout the table. Mugs are a must if you are serving hot cocoa to keep the little guests cozy and warm.
A Hot Cocoa station is always the highlight of a Holiday Party. Guests get excited to be able to create their own cup of cheer. For the guests to create their own holiday treat, I displayed mini marshmallows and cocoa powder in canisters and made a great variety of toppings available including crushed peppermint candy, snow cap chocolate chips, caramel bites, snowman marshmallows, pirouettes and more.
The Hot Cocoa Bar sign designed by Paper N’ Paper Flowers was the cherry on top for our set up. It’s simply gorgeous and oh, so eye-catching! To complete the décor, I incorporated a mini Christmas tree, a decorative pillow I created using my own images, and a sled to make the set up more inviting and festive.
Do You Want to Build a Snowman?
For a Let It Snow themed party, a ‘Build a Snowman’ Station sounded more than appropriate. I purchased bits and pieces, such as mini hats, scarves, snowman body and arms, and mittens. I even found a corncob pipe at my local craft store! This ‘building a snowman’ activity is an easy & quick idea to keep the little ones entertained. Even the adults are going to want to join in on the fun!”
