Winter Warmer Party, Featured By Austin Woman Magazine

I am so excited to FINALLY be able to tell everyone what I've been working on! In early November, I was asked by Austin Woman Magazine to design a winter party for its January issue, which hit the newsstands today! They asked me to come up with a theme for the party, style the party, and write an article about the party!

Since its cold outside, I thought what better than a Winter Warmer party, with a hot chocolate and marshmallow tasting bar!? Yum! I was lucky enough to be able to enlist my good friend, Bird, from Bird's Party to design a set of custom party printables to match my wintry theme, using frosty blue and white snowflakes, with hints of cocoa. Thanks Bird!

Here is what the article looks like (you can read the whole article in the digital edition of the magazine, by visiting their website at

The central concept of the party was a hot chocolate mixing station, where guests could create their own custom blend of hot chocolate, using one of several flavors of hot cocoa and a variety of toppings. Here are some more photos of the hot chocolate tasting bar.

The magazine has asked me to write a second article for their February issue! Yippee!! So be sure to check back next month to see the details from my "Bee my Valentine" kids party, with a cute little pink and black bumble bee theme. Bird will once again be collaborating with me, by designing custom party printables for the party!
