Hey guys, I offered to host a table for this "Womens Christmas Tea" thing, and I think I'm gonna go with light blue and silverish colors. It's this Saturday, and all I have is a silver table cloth and some light blue plates (Or some clear plates that my Aunt mentioned she had, havent seen them yet, so I haven't decided on the dishes for sure yet) Anyways, I'm supposed to have a centerpiece in the middle. I was thinking maybe snowman, or snowflake themed. I also need to have some sort of party favor, there will be 8 people at each table. I had the idea of some of the wire snowflakes, that someone on craftster just posted.....but I wanted to see if anyone had any other ideas, for centerpieces, favors, anything cute I can do to dress up the table. Also, it cant be tooo time consuming or expensive....help!

I've made these white paperbag snowflakes that Martha Stewart made on her show a few years ago, they are easy to make and really spectacular, we hang them in our front window every year!  Since they're quite large you could use them as a centrepiece (just slip one over an empty wine bottle).

I think that making a snowman for a centerpiece is also a FANTASTIC idea!  As for favours, you could always bake large cookies shaped like snowmen or snowflakes, ice them and then put them into little celophane bags - too cute!

Good luck with the party!

It can't be time consuming OR expensive? Yikes! If it's not one it's usually the other, lol!
Did you see the movie Elf? I love the decorations in that movie - they strung cotton balls on string, lots of white paper chain-link style grarland (I'm thinking computer paper, which we all seem to have a lot of) and those snowflakes we made as kids by folding paper (again, the ever present white comp paper) all over. It was really cute, probably not at all expensive and would be less time consuming if you have friends,kids, little bro's or sisters or neighbors to help out, besides, it would be a fun Christmas "together time" type thing!
