Snowy Igloo Cake
Serious eye candy! Give your guest a delicious and fun treat with a candy bar decorated with white fir trees and reindeer.
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.
Recipe: Serve Peppermint White Russians this holiday season. Smooth, creamy and very buzz-worthy.

Mark each place setting by writing your guest's name with a paint pen on the ornament of your choice and tie with ribbon.
Ornaments are the ultimate holiday decoration and work beyond the Christmas tree. Just stick to one color palette.
Cocktails: Make sure your champagne is kept well-chilled—keep several ice buckets like this one in cool hammered metal.

Layer gold and red plates for a more elegant take on rustic. For an adorable touch, use child-sized mittens as placecard holders, just write each guest's name to a label and attach.
