Snow Party

Well, I'm going to host another gathering at my house. Remember the Harvest Party? This one won't be as elaborate - but I hope it will be a lot of fun!

I was inspired by this magazine - and the section on adorable snowmen and planning a party around the theme that I decided to have a snow party! Plus, I love snow!

So, I'll be sharing my ideas - here is the first one. The invitations! I used a plain white envelope and drew a little face with the word "snow" on the front. Then I cut a piece of orange cardstock and traced a quarter, nickel and dime for the snowman body and cut out of white felt. A small clipping of orange paper glued on to make the nose and some black puffy paint made the eyes. Glue felt on with tacky glue and let dry. I wrote the details on the back of the card.

We'll be making a snow-themed placemat, learning about snow and having a devotion and sharing lunch! Stay tuned for more ideas!

Oh, what a wonderful idea!! I wish I could come! I will have to live "vicariously" through the blog posts. I can't wait to see all the wonderful things you have planned.

Very cute! I love how the snowman pops against the orange papers.

Fun, fun, fun! My kids love snow but we haven't had any good snow yet this year. We might have to do something like this if we don't don't get any this month. Thanks for sharing!

Dear Monica -- I wish I could send you some real snow to use for your party! We have LOTS! Dad is out shoveling right this minute--

Let it snow...let it snow...let it snow!
