She’s 7! Here is my last minute “winter” party we put together for Boo’s birthday last weekend. It turned out better than I thought it would for the late start I got!
The background I made using burlap. The snowflakes I cut out of a large roll of drawing paper….as well as the popsicle stick snowflakes:
She’s so big!

I made the t-shirts at the last minute…Mr. LBB is always a good sport wearing his:
I made the banner in the background so that it can be reused over and over for different purposes. I cut little flags, folded the edges and sewed them over the jute string so that they slide along it. I cut out the letters from white cardstock. To make it easy I just spray painted staples white and stapled the letters to the flag…and removed them after the party!
The cupcake toppers are available for free download at the bottom of the post:
Ok I thought this was a little disturbing but Boo loved the idea of serving “Melted Snowman” instead of water:
Cute snowman string cheese. I found the idea at No Biggie. I cut little scarves out of fabric using a rotary cutter and the faces and buttons were drawn with orange and black Sharpie. The hats are just black construction paper that I taped on using double sided tape:
Styrofoam balls made “snowballs”….these were a hit with the kids playing in the yard:
The cookies! These were made locally by Ooh La La Baking Co.
Boo and Lisa’s daughter Elle (hot air balloon top from Matilda Jane):
I made a ton of these snowflakes one night for the decor:
They were easy to make using regular popsicle sticks and wood glue. I just used a wood circle as the center and used scissors to cut the “mitre” edges. I used parchment paper to create them on so that they wouldn’t stick.
I went with an easy “non-mess” craft activity. Everything fit into a cardboard box that I printed with the same snowflake that I used for the shirts:
Inside each box was a chalkboard letter and instructions on how to draw a snowflake:
I got the letters from Michael’s and spray painted them with Chalkboard paint. I created the little “how to draw a snowflake” and printed it on kraft colored cardstock. I used a razor blade to cut the slits for the chalk. Everything fit nicely in the box:
Boo might be the pickiest kid on the planet when it comes to food….which makes the cake easy: plain vanilla cupcakes.
Thank you snow much for reading!
