Although we all thought winter was on its way out, it is about to sneak up on us again with tomorrows storm. So when it is too cold and snowy to go outside and make s’mores by a campfire, why not bring it inside for everyone to enjoy?!
This dessert bar is so easy to do at home for your next party – and also perfect for chilly days like tomorrow. All you need is: a fun display, some glass vases, a shallow wooden box, lots of rocks, sternos, and all of your s’mores elements. You can be as creative as you’d like with your display – but make sure to use a good amount of rocks around your sternos, so they stay nice and secure.

We hope that you enjoy this warm winter treat! Happy snow day!

His Hollywood theme was full of amazing decor and so many special touches.
His escort card display really POPPED, and we recreated a quick version to show you just how easy it is for you to do at home in celebration of your favorite awards show! All you need is a clear acrylic tray and some popcorn kernels. You can use any shape escort card that you’d like, but we felt the directors clap board was just perfect!
