Snowman Breakfast Party

Yesterday we hosted a very simple snowman breakfast party.  Technically, we had this breakfast for dinner, but breakfast is flexible like that.

Although I purposely kept this one small and intimate and had a budget for food only, I couldn’t stop myself from doing a wee bit of decorating.  This is proof that you can create a party with a big cuteness factor if you have versatile serving pieces and a few craft supplies on hand.  Hoarding tendencies come in handy on a budget, too.  At least that’s what I keep trying to tell my husband about the mountain of clutter in our basement.  But I digress…back to the sugar…

We served pancakes, donut “snowballs” and “snowmen”, and yogurt parfaits with granola and fruit.  I made a big batch of THIS peppermint popcorn and it was the yummiest, most addicting snack ever.

I also set up a simple hot chocolate bar with marshmallows, crushed peppermint, and mini chocolate chip toppings.

Snowman peeps and candy canes are easy and cute in jars.  I made the snowflake garland by sewing strands of paper-punched snowflakes.

Cocoa mug cookies, sugar cookies and donut snowmen.  I used batting to create “snow” on the table and on the buffet table.  Don’t you hate it when people talk in “quotes”?

Each place setting had a take-home container of snowman cotton candy.  Because, you know, I just didn’t think we had served enough sweets.  Heh.  My daughter made the place cards for everyone.  See the peppermint popcorn up there?  I don’t know how popcorn fits in with breakfast, but it’s seriously good so let’s just roll with it.

This was a fun, simple & sweet little party and I was happy to have a stress-free evening to spend with my two besties and their little darlings.

Happy holidays, D.I.Y.’ers!
