Make your party winter wonderful with these great December party ideas.

December is one of the busiest months of the year, so if you were born then, you might sometimes feel shortchanged. People born in December may feel overshadowed by Hanukkah, Christmas, New Year’s Eve, or just the stress of holiday season in general. You might even lose out on presents, getting one combined birthday/Christmas gift instead of two.

There's no need to feel slighted this time of year, though. Try throwing yourself — or a friend or loved one with a December birthday — a special party, customized for the holiday season but not in any way lessened by it.


Whether you need party favors, activities, or themes, we’ve thought of it all to ensure this birthday is full of December spirit for all age groups. With the first snowfall looming (or already coating the ground), you may think snuggling on the couch, eating comfort food, and watching Netflix is the best birthday idea. We here at The Daily Meal, however, know that deep down you want a party. Thankfully, it’s possible to throw an easy and incredible December-themed party with these entertaining ideas. From cocktails to tasty treats, we’ve got you covered so your December birthday party is full of winter wonder.
