Today we’re giving up on fighting winter and embracing all of her cold, snowy wonder by revisiting this real party feature from way back in 2010. This backyard ice skating party is one of the most popular parties I’ve ever featured! Created by event planner Kate of Beautiful Days, it’s all the things I love about winter. A big frozen pond, a roaring bonfire, a few twinkle lights strung across the backyard, mugs full of hot cooca with homemade marshmallows, ice skating and yummy snacks like little paper bags stuffed full of popcorn. You can see more of the beautiful photos from Geneve Hoffman by visiting the original post. Here’s to staying warm, any way you make it work!
