Boy’s Winter wONEderland 1st Birthday Party

By  | Last Updated:  

A boy’s winter birthday party can sometimes make it challenging to come up with games and activities for everyone to enjoy.  Why not embrace the weather and incorporate it into the theme of the party?  That is exactly what Cooper’s talented mom, Heather Stine, of Party My Way, did when planning her son’s winter wONEderland 1st birthday party.  Heather created the penguin and snowman graphics used throughout the party plus the food, the colorful décor, the favors, and the cupcakes. Heather even devised entertainment to include wintery snow themed boy birthday party ideas. Kelly Long Photography braved the cold to capture all the details.

Guests were greeted upon their arrival by a beautiful custom sign incorporating the theme into the snowy backdrop of the yard.  Blue ice balls added to the frosty welcome and hinted at the silver, blue and white décor featured inside.

Heather incorporated the theme into the games and entertainment as well.  She made adorable felt penguin masks for all the children to wear while playing a snowball toss game (custom made by Heather’s talented mother-creativity obviously runs in the family).  Each child received a “surprise snowball” which included small gifts wrapped in layers of white crepe paper. What a fun idea!

And imagine the excitement on the faces of little guests when a team of horses and a wagon arrived to take them for a ride!  Heather hired a local company, Running Springs Farm, to provide her guests with entertainment I’m certain they will talk about for years.

What snowy birthday party sleigh ride would be complete without hot soup and cocoa to warm everyone up? Following the sleigh ride guests were treated to homemade, creamy tomato basil soup with grilled cheese croutons and a hot cocoa bar.

Guests were offered an elaborate display of food that would entice even the pickiest of eaters! There was definitely something for everyone.  Careful thought was put into the planning of the menu to incorporate the snowy theme into every detail.  The menu included a “cold” cuts platter, ski slope sliders (Philly cheesesteak), bundled up buffalo chicken bites, and piggy blankets. The pasta salad was made with snowman shaped pasta and even the veggie tray sported an eggplant penguin!  There were juice boxes transformed into little snowmen, olive penguins and cheeses were labeled “ice cubes”, and fruit was displayed inside a snowman shaped watermelon; every item on the table was part of the theme!

Before heading home in the cold, guests were even given Snowman Soup favors.  The Snowman Soup included a packet of hot cocoa, mini marshmallows, a peppermint candy and chocolate wrapped in a cellophane bag and sealed with a bag topper including the sweet poem instructions.  .
