Winter Party Ideas

As soon as you start piling on the sweaters and coats, you know winter is about to grace us with her mystical, snowy magic. There's something amazing about winter that can only be found in falling snowflakes and nights spent warming up by the fire. Celebrate the coldest season this year with a sparkling winter party. All of these ideas embody a winter classic, so your guests can truly get into the spirit of the season.


A Nutcracker party is a fantastic way to celebrate the winter season and create a beautiful party. The Nutcracker is one of the few ballets we associate with the winter season, making it the perfect theme to get everyone in the winter mood. Make sure you add ballerina slippers, nutcrackers, and plenty of pink to make this dreamy ballet come alive. You could even take everyone to see The Nutcracker if it's being performed in your town!

Winter Solstice Party

For a slightly more outside-the-box winter theme, why not throw a party celebrating the official start of the season on December 22? Decorate your house in plenty of green to symbolize nature's beauty, and fill the house with candles to keep the light going as the sun sets on the shortest day of the year. Be sure you and all of your guests go outside to watch the earliest sunset of the year during your winter solstice party!

Winter Wonderland

Winter Wonderland, a classic theme for any winter gathering, celebrates everything we love about the season. Decorate your home in all silver and white with homemade snowflakes and icicles. Serve winter cocktails and warm foods at this gathering to get everyone in the spirit. You can also spray paint tree branches silver to look like miniature trees and hang small tea lights from the trees for a beautiful, elegant look.
