This winter we gathered some friends and threw a cocktail party at our little apartment. I love extending the sparkle of the holidays into the New Year to help brighten the darkest days of the year! We have lots of great things to look forward to this year and this was a fantastic way to kick it off!Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand-and melting like a snowflake… - Sir Francis Bacon
For a frosty effect, I pooled together my most sparkly Christmas decorations and my white and metallic everyday items. This included my ever expanding mercury glass collection comprised of candlesticks, vases, and ornaments. I used the pieces in little groupings on the food table. To continue the winter effect into the living room, I created a tall arrangement for the coffee table using found sticks and white carnations. It was very easy and was inspired by this post from Gibson King!
Awhile back I had scooped up some beautiful multi-tiered serving dishes from Home Goods and couldn't wait to use them for a beautiful dessert display. For this party, I was very excited to use them to create an all winter white Dessert Bar! I paraded them 3 in a row down the center of a runner so they could double as decoration!
Here are some "Winter White Dessert Bar" Suggestions...
- Sugar Cookies
- Mini Vanilla Cupcakes
