Snowman Plates! Cute Christmas Table Setting Decorations

When it comes to decorating for the holidays, you can’t get any cuter than these Snowman Plates for Christmas Table Setting Decorations! I’ve featured cute snowman plate table settings in the past and have always wanted to come up with my own. When I got the Living Locurto Team together this fall, I created a Snowman Plate challenge and excited to reveal what we all came up with for you today!

Making snowman plates for your Christmas table is super easy! I packed up a bunch of white and light gray plates, various cloth and paper napkins, carrots, blueberries, flatware, ribbon and anything else I could think of that could be used for making funny snowman place settings. I then gave everyone a set amount of time and we started decorating!

It was so much fun to decorate snowman plates! These would not only make gorgeous table decor but a fun Christmas game with your family. I think my husband would really get into this tablescape challenge too! I hope you enjoy the ideas my team and I came up with at our retreat.

Another decorating challenge was to use fruit for table decorations. Either in a centerpiece, place card holder or as general place setting decor. Since red and navy was my choice of color scheme, we used bright red apples, pears and blueberries throughout our different tablescapes.

Cut the top off of an apple and hollow out the inside with a spoon to make room for a candle. Squeeze lemon juice over the apple to keep it from browning right away before inserting your candle. Use battery operated votive candles if you plan to keep them on for a long period of time.

Easy to Make a Christmas Tree Donut Wall

I’m a HUGE fan of donut walls for a party, but they always look so complicated to make. But since I really wanted one for my annual Grinch Party, I brainstormed a way to make an easy donut wall that was of course green and could be made with simple to find materials from a craft store. From that brainstorming came our  newest holiday party creation…. the Christmas Tree Donut Wall!

Seriously, how cute is this donut wall? It would be great for any holiday party because it’s small enough to take in the car and set up wherever you want!

Both kids and adults will go crazy over it! I’m sure my daughter will want to make one for her cheer team this year. What’s great is, this craft is even simple enough for kids to make!

Make this easy Christmas Tree Donut Wall for:

  • your family on Christmas morning
  • a teacher appreciation breakfast
  • a Christmas party instead of your usual dessert

Not only is this Christmas Tree Donut Wall SO EASY to make and looks adorable on your party table, it costs next to nothing. Literally the most expensive thing you’ll buy are the donuts! You can make your own donuts with my homemade donut recipe below to save money. We got ours made at a local donut shop for $15. Overall this project will cost you less than $25. Gotta love that!!!

For this tutorial, Living Locurto team member and party expert Annaliese shows you how to make our donut wall, along with a simple way to style this on your own holiday party table. I hope you love this fun food idea as much as we do!

What you’ll need for a Christmas Tree Donut Wall:

  • 1 White Foam Board (20″ x 30″)
  • 4” Lollipop Sticks (You will need 8 sticks cut in half)
  • Yellow Scrapbook Paper
  • Red Scrapbook Paper
  • Pencil
  • Ruler or Measuring Tape
  • 15 Green Glazed Donuts

How to make a Christmas Tree Donut Wall. This simple Christmas party food craft will wow your guests and make a great gift! Cute dessert, holiday decor and breakfast idea. LivingLocurto.com

Step 1

Turn the foam board vertically and measure to find the center. The board will stand up tall when completed.

How to make a Christmas Tree Donut Wall - Step 1. Easy Christmas Party Food Craft by Living Locurto

Step 2

Measure roughly 7” down from the center of the top of the board. This is where the top of the first donut will be placed.

How to make a Christmas Tree Donut Wall - Step 2. Easy Christmas Party Food Craft by Living Locurto

Step 3

Begin arranging the donuts in a “Christmas tree” shape on top of the foam board. Start with one donut in the top row, two in the second row, etc, until you end with five donuts in the bottom row.

How to make a Christmas Tree Donut Wall - Step 3. Easy Christmas Party Food Craft by Living Locurto

Step 4

Using a pencil, mark a spot inside the donuts’ holes right at the very top to mark where you will place the sticks from which they will hang. Remember, DO NOT put the mark in the middle, it must be at the top of the hole where the donut will rest on the stick.

How to make a Christmas Tree Donut Wall - Step 4. Easy Christmas Party Food Craft by Living Locurto

Step 5 

Cut each 4” lollipop stick in half and press firmly into the foam board on top of each of your marked spots. The sticks should stay put inside the board, but if you want to insure they don’t fall out, you can hot glue them to the board. If you plan to use this donut wall only one time, I wouldn’t bother with glue! Skipping that step will save yourself some time.

Step 6

Cut a star from yellow scrapbook paper and then hot glue it to the board directly above the top donut.

Step 7

Cut a 3”x3” square from red scrapbook paper and hot glue it to the board in the center of the bottom row of donuts.

Add all of your donuts to form a Christmas Tree. The end result is so adorable!!!

What You’ll Need for The Perfect Holiday Punch

First, you’ll want a large punch bowl to give this holiday punch the oohs and ahhs it deserves. A large pitcher will work fine, but I say go old school with a big ol’ punch bowl. Natalie, one of our talented party contributors, shot these photos and I LOVE her pretty punch bowl. You can find some gorgeous punch bowls similar on Amazon here and here.

Holiday Punch is Better with Fresh Fruit

A simple holiday punch must have beautiful fruit as garnish that makes people want to dive right into it. Adding slices of oranges, limes and fresh cranberries to this punch makes it a sure winner for your party! You can also get creative and cut your fruit into holiday shapes. My mom always used star cookie cutters for her holiday punch!
