Use snowflake toothpicks to dress up your hors d'ouvres, just like these coconut "snowballs." So fun!

A traditional gingerbread house, but with an icy blue look that's ideal for a winter wonderland.
Mark each place setting by writing your guest's name with a paint pen on the ornament of your choice and tie with ribbon.
Cocktails: Make sure your champagne is kept well-chilled—keep several ice buckets like this one in cool hammered metal.
