Holiday parties with a twist!

3Winter wonderland

It doesn't matter whether or not the snow is falling outside, your guests can enjoy the beauty of winter inside your home when you throw a Winter Wonderland party. Decorate in white and silver, with touches of blue thrown in if you need a little more color. Hang metallic or plastic icicles throughout your home, and throw some synthetic snow in the corners. Hang strands of white holiday lights from the ceilings, on windows, from the tables, and anywhere else you can. Cover the lights in draped tulle for a frosted effect. Set your table using a white tablecloth and all white tableware. Since your decor will have everyone feeling the chill, warm them up with your meal. Serve soups and cozy entrees to help your guests get into the holiday spirit.
