A Winter “One”-Derland Themed Party

17th December 2013

We had such a lovely Birthday party for sweet L. I knew I wanted a Winter Wonderland theme with her birthday being so close to Christmas. Plus we don’t really get a Winter here in Florida, so I wanted it to be special, fun, festive and bring winter here to the sunshine state. I was inspired by snowflakes and silver with cool blues, mints, and mauves. I wanted it to have a wintery, icy feel.

I loved getting creative with the food and naming them things like “muddy snowballs” for the meatballs, “Ice chips” for the chips and dip and “snowflakes” for the popcorn. I made all of the party crafts myself out of card stock and I made the serving platters out of antique silver trays glued atop crystal candle holders.
