When Ally turned 10 we knew we needed a fun theme. We settled on a Winter Wonderland party with ice skating, hot cocoa and a color palate of blush pink, mint green, cream and mixed metals!
For her 10th birthday, I wanted something special that screamed Winter Wonderland so we sent her invites inside snow globes.
As I packed up Christmas, I set certain pieces aside for Ally’s party. We used mercury glass and bottle brush trees? as part of the table centerpiece and copper lanterns filled with Illume‘s mercury glass candles to give the room a cozy ambiance.
Since her party was fairly short, we settled on a hot cocoa bar and desserts. No need to bring in a whole food table when the kids are only interested in ice skating and the sugar anyway!
Instead of goodie bags, Ally treated each guest to a hat, gloves and scarf to keep warm while ice skating. We stocked up during Old Navy, Gap Kids and Forever 21’s after Christmas sales!
Ally’s dessert table was relatively minimal since we had such a small group and also because I was going for more of a dainty look. I made Ally a sugar crystal coated cake, stacked mini cakes, sugar cookies, and cake balls shaped as snowballs.
The desserts were placed atop a vintage dresser alongside a copper lantern and one of my grocery-store-chic flower arrangements.
Over Christmas break, my kids and I made popsicle stick? snowflakes with a glue gun, white spray paint? and pom poms?. We glued them to a gray tablecloth? making a darling photo backdrop!
