Yesterday we had the winter "one"derland party. The party started at 10 and guests were invited to come in their pajamas. We served doughnuts and coffee and set up a few activities. We kept the guest list very small since it was in our home and the party was for a one year old. Since the food was not gourmet and the guest list was short I was able to focus on the fun details.
Here is our console decorated for the party.
The snack bar consisted of jars of cheerios, goldfish and a snowman trail mix. The red and white paper cones held blue popcorn. There were small paper cups and acrylic scoops for everyone to help themselves.
(Rainbow scarf, pretzel stick arms, chocolate chip buttons, Oreo hat, carrot nose, and marshmallow body)
We also had a hot cocoa bar. I am thinking that next Christmas I am going to leave this on my counter so it will always be ready when friends stop by.
We also served milk with snowman straws.
The cupcakes were shaped like tiny doughnuts. I found the idea here.
I used the shutters to display pictures of the birthday boy from every month of the past year. I found tiny red glitter clothespins at Michael's.
For the activities I put out some snow books, filled our touch table with fake snow and snowman parts, supplies to make a clay snowman. We also hung donuts from a string and had the kids try to eat them without using their hands. It was very funny to watch.
And finally the favors..... Mini tins of hot chocolate and boxes of marshmallows. I displayed them in a tiny radio flyer wagon.
Sorry for the long post and so many pictures! I hope you enjoyed everything as much as I enjoyed putting it all together!
