Milk Sandwich & Winter Snow Party Time!

Here in the South, we don't see much snow (when it snows), and when it falls, it's usually a mess and no one wants to drive, so we all joke about stocking up on milk and bread before any winter weather comes our way.  Maybe we're all planning on having PB&J sandwiches with a glass of milk while the roads are icy, or maybe we're all planning on having Milk Sandwiches while we have snow parties at home (because schools and offices usually shut down at least for a few hours). We've also heard that the bags that sandwich loaves come in make excellent waterproofing agents to keep toes dry in that wet snow.

...All that said, we think it's time to plan a Snow Party!...

A Snow themed party would be fun on a day when you're huddled inside because it's too cold to go out and play, or it would be a fun theme for a winter birthday party, baby shower, wedding shower, or company get-together. At Deborah's, we're always brainstorming fun party activities, so we figured this week, we'd help you out with some delicious milk and bread snacks and a few fun snow games.

Check out some of the great ideas we've found (and some we've tried!) to host your own Snow Party!




This White Hot Chocolate looks tasty (and we're tempted to try it this weekend whether it snows or not!) With only 3 ingredients (that you may already have assuming you picked up some milk this week), it would be a quick, delicious, warm treat for kids and adults.

While we're thinking about white chocolate (doesn't it make you think of snow??), check out this White Chocolate Bread Pudding (handy recipe to have around in case you manage to get an extra loaf before it's all sold out).

As you're sipping on hot cocoa and your bread pudding is cooking, run outside and set a clean bowl on the deck so you can collect the main ingredient for this next recipe....SNOW CREAM. There are several varieties of snow cream recipes floating around, but this is one we've used in the past and we love!


We love this idea of stringing some cereal and raisins on some yarn and decorating trees outside.  The birds and squirrels will love you, and the kids will have fun decorating! (Bonus: You won't have to un-decorate like you just did for Christmas!)

As always, the forecast has been changing as the weekend approaches, so it may turn out that we only get lots of cold rain.  In that case, here's a fun way to make your own "snow"!

In fact, this would be a fun activity for kids (or the perfect decoration) for a snow-themed party! We've been compiling a few ideas on our Pinterest board...like this gorgeous ribbon and crystal chandelier we can create for a snow-themed party in a tent!



You could even set up a fun photo booth with a "snow" backdrop and some fun snow themed props and get your guests to upload their pictures to Snapchat with a custom Snapchat filter designed for your party or wedding!

Assuming we get the winter weather we've seen forecast this week, stay safe and stay warm! (And maybe set a bowl out tonight, just in case :) ).
