Frozen Winter Party Table

Frozen Winter Party Table

Frosty frozen parties have been the rage this year. I think due in part to a singing snowman and ice queen. I do love a nice winter wonderland-esque party, and for my article in the winter issue of Yum! Food and Fun for Kids magazine I put together a Frozen Party table in icy blues and white. The thing I love about it is that it is really budget minded for all you out there with little princesses out there that may need a little inspiration for birthday parties.

The table runner was made of “snowballs”–which was just a bag of cottonballs spread down the table. A few ornaments and cloches gave the table some sparkle.

I think this is quite possibly the worst picture of my son ever–but his sweet girlfriend Ruby really loved the whole “frozen” party idea. She did indeed treat us to her rendition of “Let It Go” that day. You can see these two at Valentines Day last year–they were a hoot!

Place settings–this doesn’t have to be hard! A piece of cardstock makes a great placemat, and for a fancy-type napkin holder, just do a quick fan fold of a white paper napkin and put a snowflake cut out on top to hold it down. Done!

Snowman Glasses

Some fancy snowman glasses were a must. This is just ribbon, felt and a few glue dots to make these. Tie a 2 inch ribbon around the top of your glass (you might need a glue dot or two to make it stay) and roughly cut a few circles out of black felt to stick down the front of the glass for the full snowman effect.

While it did look cool when it was done, it took an awful lot of them, and it took a really really long time to do. Plus, they tangle like mad–you can not let them fall from the ceiling or come near each other or you’ll have a giant snowball instead of a gentle snow fall! Effort would have been better off on a different sort of detail.

My surprise craft item this year was these darling snowmen! I was going to build one out of Styrofoam balls, but all the work had been done for me, and the snowmen came in blanks from the craft store to decorate as you see fit.

A detail I can’t help but have at party tables is a chair back. Again, super simple! A little silver netting (from a roll) and a pre-cut snowflake created the perfect amount of frozen party glitter and a good polish for the winter tablescape.

This wintry table is good for any time of year; January snow parties or a Frozen birthday party in the middle of summer. In fact, we enjoyed this one in July!
