Snowflakes – snowflakes are a simple reminder of the winter season. It’s a statement that could be added to any part of the party – hanging decor, snacks and a tree! Snowflakes are a great DIY activity if you want to curb costs — all you need is some white paper, markers & scissors!

Silver/blue/white lighting – it helps to lift the winter mood by providing color tones that provide a winter feel. To avoid making the atmosphere too dark or ominous, opt for neutral colors that give a “cooling” winter effect — white, silver, blue, purple, magenta. These are great for a touch of color, but done correctly & can provide the winter decor you’re looking for!

Playlist of holiday songs – nothing says holiday season than playing your favorite holiday tunes — “All I Want For Christmas”, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” or “Dreidel, Dreidel”. Adding these to your party playlist will entertain you & your guests and potentially make for some good sing-a-long’s or karaoke (if there’s enough alcohol involved!)

Hot (spiked) beverages – nothing beats cold weather than a nice hot beverage. Provide your guests with non-alcoholic & alcoholic beverages to cater for specific wants & needs of your guests. Get into the holiday spirit and find drinks that taste delicious with or without liquor! Hot chocolate and apple cider are a few of many great suggestions!

Lights/candles – to set the mood, lights & candles can add the “romantic” element to any activity. String gold lights along the walls/ceiling or set floating candles along a fireplace, dinner table or bowl of fruit (apples, cranberries, strawberries make a nice touch for some holiday red!)

DIY desserts (s’mores), Secret Santa or karaoke are a few of some fun party activities to enjoy while you enjoy your winter party celebrations!
