Winter Wonderland !

Yesterday before the snow blew in, we had a party at school celebrating January birthdays. My room and the two third grade classes were responsible for decorating the staff lounge and bring- ing treats for all staff. When we do this, I am in charge of the theme and the decorations. I chose a "Winter" theme since it is January. As you can see in the photo above and the one below that I went with a blue and white color scheme with some silver thrown in for BLING! The large vase was filled with silver sparkly and other silver ornaments with blue glitter on them. It was placed in the middle of the table on top of white table coverings, around it I made a ring with the dark blue ornaments, the snow- flakes were scattered about the table along with the pom poms. Any extra ornaments were also scattered about. I also bought the York Pepper- mint Patty Bites because they are blue and white AND yummy. Plus Hershey Kisses because they are "BLINGY." Blue and white paper goods were used as was "crystal" plasticware. Just imagine several tables set up horizontal in our lounge and then you'll have some idea how it was decorated. I enjoy doing this so much and it is interesting listening to comments being said. They are all great. This is an up close shot of one of the snowflakes. Isn't it pretty? I didn't get pics due to leaving for school early, leaving the camera at home and being distracted by the upcoming storm we were going to have. But I know that my friends have great imaginations and can work this through the brain waves. I bet you thought I was going to post about our storm. :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) ~Keep on Dreaming~


  1. Wow how pretty!!!! I am sure everyone just loved how you decorated. We are getting lots of snow tonight--our schools are already posting delays for the morning. I wouldn't be surprised if they cancelled all together. Well stay safe and warm...

  2. Wow, the bling really "makes" it! I'm sure the staff just loved the finished look.

    We are cold, COLD here, but not a lot of snow. Guess it must of all blown your way -- sorry 'bout that!

  3. I bet you and your class just 'wowed' all by the beautiful presentation. I'm sure everyone enjoyed your special touch.
