Winter Theme Party Ideas

I've always had a thing for themed parties. I find them cute and creative! A couple of years ago I had a winter themed party at my place for a few friends. Here are a few ideas:
 


I had lined the ceiling with these Styrofoam snowflakes I bought at Party City for very cheap. They were attached with strings at varying lengths.  

 This table was set up to function as a hot chocolate stand for the guests who were coming in. They had their drinks with cookies as they waited for the rest of the guests to arrive.

Here are some of the flavors that could be added to the drink




The cupcakes were s'mores flavored with Hershey's on top



 The party favors were also set on this table. They were ingredients to Chocolate Chip and M&Ms cookies displayed in a cone.

The appetizers included garlic bread, cream of mushroom soup, crackers with dips and these cute olive penguins:

These are made of small and large sized olives, cream cheese and carrots. The instructions can be found here


It's ideal to choose some main dish which is appropriate for winter. I made Shepherd's Pie as it was warm and filling. I made 12 individual portions for the guests as it looked cute. Also made some creamy pasta to go with this.

And for dessert, 12 personal sized Molten Lave Cakes! Recipe can be found here.

 These beautiful ornaments were hung year round from the ceiling in my old apartment. They are super cheap when on clearance and make a bold statement when in a central location, like above the coffee table in the living room. This also went well with the Winter Theme Party!

  4. My favorite is the penguins... but I'd feel sad to eat them since they're so cute! And I definitely want to try making the lava cake!
