Day 22 and over at MHH we are talking Theme Parties in our Second Christmas in July Give Away thread.

ConnieChristmas suggested a

Let It Snow Party –

I have a pretty good snowman collection going. So I decorate with my snowmen every where. Little white twinkle lights all about. Hanging snowflakes all over the place. My tablecloth would be silver and decorate with snowflake ornaments and centerpiece with silver candles. I think an old sled decorated with lights leaned in the corner some where or in the entryway! (Turn down the heat so the air would be a little chilly!)

Menu for Soup Supper -

Sleigh Ride Stew - White Chili
Tummy Warmer Potato Soup
White Snowflake Dinner Rolls
Hot Chocolate and Eggnog
Snowmen and snowflake Cookie Platter
White Chocolate Mousse Trifle

I would have and activiy table to cutting papers snowflake. And a prize for the one voted best!

Christmas Music of course!

And Texan suggests....

a Get in the Mood For Christmas party theme!

I have a "Get in the Mood for Christmas" party each year on the Sunday following Thanksgiving. Everyone is encouraged to bring a few gifts to wrap. I pull out all of the wrapping paper, packaging decorations, tags (and materials to make your own). Of course, scheduling this assures that I will have my house fully decorated for the season! The invitation is a poem encouraging everyone to start their Christmas shopping. The food is festive (including Cranberry infused wine and Cape Cods with Ginger infused Vodka--yum!)--mostly finger foods. Of course there are Christmas cookies! Christmas music is a must. As most of my friends are last minute shoppers, this helps them get started before the lines and crowds get to be too much. For party favors, I have provided those wrist tape dispensers and 'spa at home' bags to relax during the season. It is great to get together before the 'busy-ness' of the season gets in full swing.

If you are interested in theme party ideas ...make sure you check out this thread...what a great resource!!
