Wintergreen-Inspired Holiday…

Tis the season! I always find it ironic when the weather is HOT! HOT! HOT!, the hobby and craft stores start stocking their shelves with red, green and sparkly holiday décor. The holiday season is the last thing you want to consider while sipping a mai tai in your beach chair when trying to squeeze the last few hours out of your summer vacation.

(wait for it…I’m going to burst your bubble!)

FOR REAL! The holiday season is FOUR months away!!!

Last year, we had the privilege of collaborating on a “wintergreen” themed holiday party for approximately 900 guests. Visualize sleigh rides, fresh pine, fireplace chats, chilly afternoon hikes and frozen noses! To pull off the wintergreen theme, we made sure to include organic details from burlap stockings to perfectly wrapped gifts adorned in brown paper and twine.

This event had quite a few moving parts…custom décor, two dessert/coffee stations, two craft and one edible action station for the kiddos and two hot cocoa bars!

My favorite part had to be the edible action station! The kiddos had a blast filling their individual treat bags with concoctions of sweet treats that resembled pieces of coal! Our client just happens to know a thing or two about coal…wink! wink!

Our hot cocoa bar was transformed into an ice skating rink, complete with skate rentals, blankets, mittens and of course warm wishes for the holiday season! To fully capture the theme, the fixings were placed on top of freshly cut wood rounds and enjoyed in personalized cocoa cups.

The mini desserts were displayed on three vintage sleds aloft blankets of snow. Guests also enjoyed the warmth of our signature drink, a “cinnamon coal latte.” Desserts included cake pops, chocolate dipped pretzel rods, chocolate mousse cups and s’mores marshmallow pops! Each dessert had a hand-crafted holiday-themed food picks.

We also can assist with “Breakfast with Santa.” Want a new twist? How about a “Santa in Pajamas” Party?!!

With the hustle and bustle of the season, thank your guests for spending it with you! Make your event memorable and add some fairy flair!
