*Welcome to the winter celebration challenge, so fresh and so clean. Where four designers have styled handcrafted party scenes to compete for a readers choice award + one incredible grand prize. This is stylist number four, do you think she should win? Vote and tell me why (you can vote for as many parties as you’d like this week!).

A winter white picnic designed by Courtney, editor of the very successful site Pizzazzerie. She styled this sweet spot for snuggling up with a loved one and sharing hot cocoa, sweet treats, and luxurious blankets under the trees. What a perfect plan for the weekend ahead!

Courtney’s picnic featured a few amazing treats, she served mini dark chocolate cups filled with marshmallows and hot cocoa alongside coconut truffles and petit fours from A Perfect Bite in Nashville, TN. They went perfectly with the color scheme and the extra glittered crystals added an extra sparkle. Local Nashville chocolate was served along with heart shaped mini marshmallows. Small “mints” were added to give the hot cocoa a fresh mint flavor!

Keys were a subtle theme throughout the picnic, hung alongside the fence and scattered throughout the design. Keys have such an old, vintage romantic feel which Courtney found intriguing to contrast with the fresh and clean theme. The scrumptious sweets rested on a handcrafted wooden tray, perfect for holding your treats and mugs at a picnic.
