Baby It's Cold Outside

Guest Post From Doris!

“Baby, it’s cold outside” was a perfect theme for our January Luncheon. Everything outside was covered in beautiful white snow and light snowflakes were falling. 
 In our closet of supplies we had some foam flat snowflakes. The challenge was to make them into some cute stand-up centerpieces. Cutting half of the snowflakes down the middle and gluing them together they made a cute 3-D snowflake that would stand up. Easy and inexpensive!!

We were so excited to find the perfect paper placemats at Oriental Trading for the tables.  They added a lot of color and went so wonderfully with the theme. We find using the place-mats really saves on the wear and tear of our tablecloths

 When the Guests came in out of the cold snowy day they could help themselves to a Hot Cocoa Bar. We don’t have a lot of resources, and so we didn’t have a fancy Hot Cocoa machine, but adding some vinyl snowflakes to the Blue Container was pretty festive and the Hot Cocoa stayed so warm the entire Luncheon. Not a gorgeous Hot Cocoa bar, but very practical for our use.

The Stirring spoons were so fun and made the Hot Cocoa even tastier!! They were so simple to make. Just prop the spoons on the side of a dinner plate. Melt chocolate ( I used Hershey bars) and then pour a little into each spoon.

Besides the stirring spoons, we had crushed peppermint, marshmallows and whipping cream for them to add. Mmmmm Delicious!! The cute printables were found here , and here
