How to Celebrate the Winter Season with a Snowman Party

Get cozy this winter with a party that celebrates flurries, frost and fun! Next time you order groceries online a from Loblaw banner storethrough PC Express, add the essentials you'll need for a festive snowman party.

Create a stunning, edible centrepiece for your snowman party table. Buy candy in shades of white, silver and cool blue. Think silver foil-wrapped chocolate drops, jelly beans, silver ball sprinkles and candy sticks. Layer your candy into a large, clear vase. Spherical vases reinforce the snowball theme.

Set the party scene with a white tablecloth scattered with silver snowflake cutouts and glitter. If you're having a dinner party, create sparkling, snowy place settings with silver placemats and napkins. DIY some snowflake napkin rings with craft paper rings, glue and a simple snowflake stencil.

Decorate windows with snowman paper cutouts and old-fashioned paper snowflakes. This is a great craft for the whole family. Show kids how to fold paper and cut a pattern using child-safe scissors, then open it up to reveal intricate snowflakes they can display at their party. Try creating snowman and snowflake paper chains for a festive party garland or hang metallic paper snowflakes on ribbon or white string to hang above your party table.

Want to really wow your guests? String up to 10 cotton balls along a piece of thread and hang from the ceiling. Do this again and again until your living room or dining area looks like a winter wonderland (without the chill!). Don't want fake snow hanging above guests' heads? Hang your snowfall in your windows.

Need more snowy, sweet-treat inspiration? White icing on cupcakes goes a long way. Adorn with silvery blue sprinkles or make cupcake snowmen with chocolate chip eyes and carrot noses. White, frosted doughnuts and big bowls of fluffy popcorn are simple and striking, especially when displayed in shimmery blue bowls or atop metallic-grey paper napkins.

Finally, it’s time to bundle up and head outdoors to get the ball rolling -- literally! Bring accessories for the snowman, like hats and scarves, buttons for the eyes, a carrot for the nose, and twigs for arms. Find the fluffiest patch of snow and get to work.

Once back indoors, make sure guests feel cozy rather than cold with soft throws at every seat. And continue the warmth by serving hot cocoa, complete with snowy toppings, such as mini marshmallows, whipped cream and sparkling sprinkles.
