I saw this idea in one of my old magazines from Matthew Mead and I absolutely loved it!
I took a fishbowl (brand new) and added the face on the punch bowl by melting chocolate and using my fingers made circles for the eyes and mouth. I then used white chocolate and tinted it with gel food coloring to make it orange for the nose. I placed the punch bowl on a tray and put tons of mini marshmallows all around the base of it! So precious!For the glasses I used clean rootbeer bottles and added a powdered donut hole on the top with the straw going through it to hold it in place. I used mini chocolate chips for the eyes and a "jelly belly" jelly bean...cut in half for the nose.
Then I decorated the necks of the root beer bottles with some left over orange fluffy trim for a scarf.
We served Eggnog in the punch bowl because it was cold and wouldn't melt the face off the snowman. You could try different a punch to serve in there for a festive look.
Can't wait to see what has been the centerpiece of your week!
