Frosty snowman decorations from table decor to pinatas and favors.

It starts with table settings (1) that Frosty would love, like this one from A Purdy Little House. Winter-white table linens brightened with red plates, napkins, and candleholders. And warmed up with a cozy plaid throw and black “snowman hats” overhead with matching plaid trim.

For adorable centerpieces, assemble this snowglobe-style Frosty the Snowman (2) using this tutorial from An Alli Event. Two bubble ball vases are filled with mini ornaments and Epsom salt “snow.”
