Winter Wonderland Party Ideas
photo credit: athome.kimvallee.com/ Even with all the effort we put into great food and entertainment, sometimes it’s the décor we remember the most from holiday parties. And when this is the case, it’s not the store bought bling or rented displays that stand out in our memories for years, but the clever unexpected decorations. All it takes is some imagination and a bit of pre-planning to invite your guests into a winter wonderland they’ll never forget. Here are some ideas for some over the top party bling: photo credit: wedwebtalks.com Table center: Make every table its own fairyland. Collect tree branches from Aspen or Manzanita trees, remove the leaves and bundle together. Spray with white paint, anchor in a deep vase filled with rocks, and hang clear snowflake ornaments on the branches. Put floating candles in glass jars at the base of the vase, light, and watch every branch and ornament twinkle like a magical winter night. photo credit: inspiredbythis.com Walk ways: Spark the magic from the moment your guests arrive with inviting walkways from the driveway to the table and après dinner fire pit. String antique chandeliers on wires over walkways and in your trees. To point the way to your powder rooms, buffet or your dessert bar, sprinkle orchid or rose petals on your walkways. photo credit: ruffledblog.com Narnia style: Literally serve your drinks “on” ice by using ice molds to create cups made entirely out of ice. Keep drinks cold from the outside in. With just a little imagination, you can create party decorations that bling up any party and create a sparkle that will last long after the guests are gone. Happy Holidays!
