I have started my own events company. One of the parties I was most proud of that cost me virtually NOTHING and is STILL talked about was a Winter Wonderland party.
With polystyrene snowflakes, branches from my garden painted white, blue lighting, a few props and heaps and heaps of white polystyrene balls it truly looked like a Winter Wonderland.
South Africa - Johannesburg - has only seen snow once in my lifetime - in 1983. My guests partied all night and had the BEST time!!!
