{PARTY TIME} Winter Wonderland!

This was such a fun theme to work on! It was more of a winter party than a Christmas party but there were a few festive elements thrown in. The colour scheme was sparkly gold, silver and white and the party was jam packed full of fun activities. 

The layers of gold, silver and white worked really well in creating a sparkly, wintery feel. We scattered around lots of different styles of glittery gold, silver and white trees to add to the sparkly winter feel. Our Baby It's Cold Outside light box was a fun whimsical addition to the food table. The cute little present boxes sprinkled around the food table were a wee festive touch. 

On arrival the gingerbread houses were all ready for the children to start decorating. We recommend if you are going to make the houses yourself that you get a gingerbread cookie cutter set as it is so much easier and  a lot quicker. However, if you just want to make a few then there are loads of good templates you can download from the internet. 

After getting their fix of sugar from eating more candy than they stuck onto the houses the children moved on to make their own Winter Wonderland. This is a great activity for all ages. Each child got to choose what they wanted to put into their Wonderland and then went about assembling it. This is a fun activity for all ages and produces great results. 

The for the last activity before dinner the children got to make their own gingerbread men necklaces. Both the boys and girls enjoy this activity and again it is suitable for a wide range of ages. 

Lastly, party food! The food was kept festive and light. The cranberry meatballs and pasty stars were a nice play on the traditional sausage rolls. There was also a splash of cranberry added to the turkey and cheese roll ups. Home made cheese and olive pizza (not pictured) was also on offer for those not keen on festive fare. For desert the spiced cookies were a big hit along with the adorable pumpkin spice cake.
