"Let It Snow" Christmas Party

Let It Snow, let it snow, let it snow…

Friday night was our 3rd annual Ladie’s Night gift exchange, and this year I decided on a “Let It Snow” theme with white, silver, and icy blue accents. Of course you can’t have a ‘snow’ theme without snowflakes so there were plenty of those as well. This is pretty easy to do because everyone brings either an appetizer or wine to share. I provided the sweets with a dessert and favor bar.
The centerpiece for the food table was a manzanita tree spray painted silver and adorned with icicle ornaments and a few snow birds. I also added some blue ‘leaves’ just to bring the color up. White poms and carnations surrounded the tree and blue ‘berry’ clusters added more color.
A different snowflake sticker was attached to each wine glass to carry out the theme and help identify the glass.
This is such a fun night and a great way to kick off the holiday season before everyone’s schedule gets too full. For more pics check out our Flickr Set, or our Facebook album.

    So good, Peanut. Can I come next year?

    I did a party this past weekend with lots of hanging snowflakes. Pictures up soon.

    Also, doing a dessert station similar to this on Saturday for another party. It's the Year Of Recycling as much as I can from my inventory because no one has any budget this year. Not as much fun for the party planner but wallet friendly for the hosts. : )

  15. Beautiful! I like the sticker on the wine glass idea.
