Originated in the alps, the Apres Ski Party took place on the last run of the day.  Skiers stopped at different chalets on their way down the hill to indulge in food and drink.
 
Whether skiing, snowboarding or sledding… Gathering in a warm cozy spot is the key.  Host a party that will have everyone boasting about the day's accomplishments or, more likely, messaging new found aches and pains.  Combine close friends, games, great food, cocktails, music and you’ve got an

Invitations

 
Make old fashion snow flakes using white or light gray construction paper.  Or, use a snowflake wood block stamp to decorate your invitation.  Each one can be different, just like real snow flakes.   Glue the snowflakes to folded construction paper.  Use colors that will go with the theme of your party.  Inside provide details for your event; date, time, location, etc.

    You've just spent all day in a winter wonderland, so here are ideas to keep the snowy winter theme going for your party:
    • Light a roaring fire in the fireplace
    • Vases filled with white flowers set on the serving table with a dusting of fake snow.
    • Candles wrapped in 'birch' will bring the outdoors inside.  Arrange scented pine cones around the candles.
    • Position old skis, snowshoes or sleds around the room.
    • Hang photos youy've taken on ski trips on the walls.
    • Ski posters (retro or modern), hung on a wall or two, will add a ski resort feel to the party.
     
    Activities
     
    Whether it's an adult only or a family party, gather around the fireplace and play a few games.  Then watch a Warren Miller ski film!!   
    • Bingo - A great game for any age
    • Twister - You're already limbered up, so this should be easy!
    • Warren Miller films - Always a big hit

    When the crowd arrives it's guaranteed that they'll be hungry, so have drinks and appetizers ready to go.  We love this beef stew that simmers all day in the slow cooker!
