You can pick up a set of these gorgeous liners from Designs with Distinction, an Etsy vendor.

  • Hang white sparkle snowflakes from your chandelier to tie into the winterly d├ęcor on the guest table below. These snowflakes can be found in a variety of sizes at Pat Catans and come with a clear fishing wire hook for easy hanging.

  • This butter cream frills cake was made by The Yum Yum Place and inspired by Jessicakes. Wrapped in snow white icing ruffles, it coordinates perfectly with the Let It Snow theme. The cake's height and blue icing ribbon accent will really capture the attention of guests and coordinates perfectly with the white and blue color palette.

  • Surprisingly, sometimes the best dessert ideas can be found in the inside aisles at your local grocery store. These simple white powdered donuts were piled onto a plate coated in white-flaked coconut. They look incredible on the dessert table and will probably become the favorite choice for your youngest guests.

  • These beautiful white die cut snowflake boxes from Oriental Trading Company are perfect for holding the glittery wine charms handed out to guests as favors. They have a little window in them so guests can peek at the goodies inside. The boxes are also the perfect size to fit a set of six wine charms.

  • These incredible sugar doilies from Sweet Deja Vu, an Etsy vendor, are simply the most elegant way to serve your sugar with your after-dinner coffee or tea. Their ornate design resembles a beautiful white snowflake melting when landing on the ground. Watch them slowly dissolve in the hot liquid. These would be also a fabulous hostess gift for all of your holiday parties.

  • These festive holiday cake pops are from Alexandria Cake Pop Company, an Etsy vendor. Not only are they super delicious, but their chic design (some with glitter sparkle dust) will complement the other desserts on the themed dessert bar. Place these pretty sugary treats up in front on the table so both the adults and children will get to see what they will get to enjoy for dessert.

  • Set the stage for your holiday bash with these festive Let It Snow invites from Mimis Dollhouse, an Etsy vendor. During the holidays people are often overwhelmed with commitments for gatherings so make sure your invites stand out with a beautiful themed invitation. Part of a holiday printable pack, these can be custom designed to coordinate with your color palette.

  • Nothing is more comforting than warm cheesy bread on a cold winter's day, which makes it a great bread option for your holiday dinner. These cheesy mini loaf beer breads from Jersey Girl Cooks are a great way to give everyone a nice individual portion (even can be split between two people) and are super flavorful. There are also time adjustments if you would like to use different size pans. After all, who doesn't love cheese, bread and beer?

  • These dazzling snowflake toppers from Cupcakes By Christy, an Etsy vendor, are the perfect sparkling accessory to these bright blue frosted cupcakes. They are absolutely stunning and would be fabulous toppers on homemade candies as well.

  • Melting chocolates have made it so much easier to add color to our themed dessert bars. Take blue melting chocolates and dip these pretzel rods into the chocolate. Here's the trick: use a drinking glass and fill it to the point at which you want the chocolate to cover the pretzel. Then simply dip it in and roll between hands to get excess chocolate to drip off. Then sprinkle on some sugar snowflakes and dry on wax paper until set.

  • Give these wine charms out as favors to your guests for them to use all winter long. These were incredibly easy to make using mini sparkle snowflakes from Pat Catans. Flank each side of the snowflake with different color beads to make a set of six for each guest.

  • Adorn the front of your dessert table with this customizable Let it Snow banner from Mimis Dollhouse, an Esty vendor. This company can also change out the colors of this printable package to fit your party needs. It includes lots of printable matching options, including this banner, cupcake wrappers, candy labels, food tags and invites.

  • This could be one of the easiest side dishes you will ever prepare during the holidays. Roasting really brings out the flavor of the vegetables and is so super easy to do. All you need is a good olive oil and some salt and pepper.

  • This is a delicious and easy main course to serve at your holiday dinner, courtesy of Taste of Home. The brown sugar and mustard really pair nicely with the ham and bring out the flavors of the meat. Serve this on a nice big white platter to show off the colors of the golden baked ham.

  • Take your potatoes up a notch and serve them Duchess style. All you need is a large star tip and a pastry bag or even a large gallon-size Ziploc bag, though we prefer to use disposable pastry bags, which you can find in the baking aisle of Joann Fabrics or Michaels. This yummy recipe from The Pioneer Woman will be incredibly impressive on your dining table. Serve them on a pedestal platter like this one from HomeGoods.

  • Stuffing is a holiday staple and likely a favorite among some of your guests during the holiday season. Spice it up a little with some Italian sausage, either hot or sweet.

  • This dessert is an easy kid favorite and will enable you to tie in the blue color to the dessert bar. Simply stick a short lollipop stick into the marshmallow, dip it into melted blue chocolate wafers, sprinkle on some edible snowflake confetti and sprinkles and then let dry on wax paper until coating has hardened. Place them on a white platter covered in flaked coconut for a snowy presentation.

  • Create this place setting by starting with these sea blue chargers from Web Restaurant Store. They come in a case of 24 so this would be a good item to split with a friend or two, but nonetheless a really good price. Their light blue color really pops against the wood table and sets the stage for the Platinum Crown china from Mikasa. Then use this snowflake ribbon from Joann Fabrics and wrap it through a silver snowflake ornament and tie around your shimmery napkin.

  • Hydrangeas are the perfect flower for this snowy dinner. Their big bulbs simulate snowballs and they are available in a variety of colors.
