No ski pass? No prob­lem. You can host this après-ski-in­spired af­fair in the com­fort of your own liv­ing room–turned–lodge.

Snow­shoe Server

To cre­ate a one-ofa-kind tray, have a piece of glass cut to fit in the mid­dle sec­tion of a vin­tage snow­shoe. (It’ll cost roughly $30.) Hold the sheet in place with glass bumpers.

Ski Slope Menu Sign

Point guests in the di­rec­tion of snacks with wooden sig­nage—sim­ple jumbo craft sticks with col­ored edges— glued to a stick from the yard. Stand in a piece of foam topped with fake snow (joann.com).

BEV­ER­AGE STA­TION

What’ll it be? A chilled beer (nes­tled in an ice-filled soda crate) or a help­ing of stove­top Warm Tea-and-Cider Punch (see recipe, page 89).

POUTINE PLAT­TER

Is there any­thing more in­dul­gent than this Cana­dian del­i­cacy fea­tur­ing French fries topped with gravy and cheese curds? Prob­a­bly not, eh? (See the glo­ri­ously rich recipe on page 89.)

Mit­ten Sil­ver­ware Gar­land

Fill cable-knit mit­tens (theirish­store.com) with folded nap­kins and flat­ware, and tie with pretty blue twine (ama­zon.com) and eu­ca­lyp­tus leaves. Hang from thick twine with clothes­pins, or place along­side plates.

Serve home­made hot tod­dies on a DIY snow­shoe server (pg. 33).
