Snow Theme Party

My daughter is having a "snow" theme party for her 12th birthday. I have some ideas but more would be welcome!

We got some glittery blue and white showflake ornaments and garlands to decorate the house. I also have a lot of snowman decorations already, so it all fits in well with that.

She wants blue streamers as well. We got snowflake plates and napkins, and I found some plastic cups with snowmen on them.

I found coffee mugs at the dollar store with snowmen and penguins on them so I got those for "favors." We will put candy canes, a packet of cocoa, and a lip balm in each of those.

Now to make the cake. She would like a snowman cake. First I thought I'd draw a snowman on a 9X13 cake, but she thinks she would rather have a "shape" cake. I told her she could have a snowman head with hat. I will use an 8' round pan for the head, frost in white and decorate with Hershey Kisses. I will have to draw on the carrot nose--I offered to use a fruit roll-up but she nixed that idea. (Maybe I will just use a real baby carrot!) For the hat, I'm going to use a mini loaf pan for the crown of the hat, and a long skinny loaf pan for the brim. I will frost that in chocolate and decorate with M&Ms for a hatband.

Sounds like you already have some really cute ideas!

You can use coconut on or around the cake for a snowy looks.

For gag gifts:

Melted Snowmen
Take a rock - any rock - preferably a slightly round rock, and paint it white. Paint on a snowman face, happy or sad. Add a little black hat made out of felt and two thin sticks for arms and you have a melting snowman.

Snowman Poop:
Put tiny marshmallows or white packing "peanuts" into a plastic bag, accompanied by this poem:

Santa checked his list not once, but twice.
He found you've been naughty not nice.
Since coal is so expensive, Here's the scoop.
He's filled your stocking with Snowman poop!!!

Are you serving dinner? There's always snowmen (meatball) subs or spaghetti w/alfredo sauce and snowballs(meatballs) with broom stick bread.

What are you doing for the activities during the party?

Dinner is pizza!

It's a sleepover party. There are no "activities." I think DD is asking her friends to bring their favorite Christmas movies to watch. They can also play DDR. And I got a bunch of nail polish (and a plastic tablecloth for sitting) so they can do nails.

The guests are 11 or 12 so they will basically be entertaining themselves.

What about serving an angelfood cake with white icing and coconut?

You could also make tortilla pinwheels since they are white. You can alter the ingredients to the liking of pre-teens. You could call them snowballs squashed snowmen, or something that would be appealing to kids.

Here's the cake! I used Hershey kisses for the eyes and mouth, M&Ms on the hat, and I warmed up a Starburst and shaped it into the nose.
