How to make your outdoor party extra special

We've talked about setting the stage with a campfire, outdoor skating rink and serving soup in thermoses with bannock bread, but how do you make your outdoor winter party extra special?

It's always in the details!


To create these large marbles, that would be lovely lining the path to your party place, simply fill balloons with colored water and set them in the freezer. The only thing that I would change would be to stick to one color to create a cohesive look.


Pick up some bales of straw from a local farmer and cover them with blankets for a great seating area.


Use your summer patio furniture as props! Cover it with snow, like the folding chair shown above, and hand a lantern from the seat or back. Then, place teapots full of steaming teal and carafes of delicious hot chocolate on the seat for a serving station!
