Help for Winter Solstice (White Party?) Menu Planning

Tehama | Aug 10, 201710:19 AM     16

The sweltering August heat is making me long for cool weather, and
cooking for cool weather. I happened to remember an acquaintance of
mine hosted a winter solstice party every year and I was thinking that
would be something neat to plan for. Even though I can see the
possibility of the table looking bland, Pinterest is leading me to
imagine that an all-white (winter) table of decorations and foods
could be a possibility. I'm not married to that idea, but it sounds
interesting.

I combed through past posts on "winter solstice" and "white party" and
did not see a huge amount of conversations on the topics, so I wanted
to revive the topic for 2017. We've got plenty of time to plan, but I
would love your menu ideas for a winter solstice party.

It would be indoor (fire pit will likely be going on the terrace) and
a stand-up affair. I'd say probably 20 people or so. The winter
solstice is on Thursday, December 21 this year. Oh, and most of our
friends have kiddos, so the 20 is the potential adult number.

Thank you guys so much!
