Parties are a great way to socialize during the cold months in the winter season. This invites you to put on your thinking cap to come up with new and fun themes. Here are some ideas to consider while making your party plans.
Host a Fancy Dinner Party
Most folks like to dress up to show off their style and taste. Hosting a fancy dinner party is fun, especially if using a theme such as a black and white dinner party. Impress your guests with bite-size goodies and appetizers on a black and white themed table. The dinner table settings should reflect the theme. If serving alcoholic beverages, keep in mind how alcohol affects someone’s ability to drive and make sure everyone can get home safe. Have non-alcoholic drinks such as fun and fizzy beverages or flavored mineral water available for designated drivers.
Movie Marathon Party
Pick a movie theme that has several films focused on a series or a central idea that showcase certain actors, areas of the world, or type of animals. Develop a trivia game to play before the movie starts. Think of making snacks and drinks that are related to the movie theme. Remember to have theme-based prizes for the game winners and take-home party favors for your guests.
Favorite Basketball Team Party
Invite guests over to watch a basketball game encouraging them to represent their favorite player. Have them bring facts about the player to share in a trivia game. Offer delicious snacks that are based on the area of the team’s game and have pompoms, noisemakers, and team records for the guests to enjoy. Kids to adults like to get together to cheer on their favorite team. Offer chili or chowder for the halftime event.
Winter Holiday Party
Winter holidays, such as Valentine’s Day, are a wonderful time to have your favorite couples over for a dance-themed party. A Sadie Hawkins party lets the girl make the first move to ask a party date. After a large snowfall, invite the neighbors over to build snowmen in your yard while offering hot apple cider or marshmallow hot chocolate. For a great warm-up, put on a pot of chili with some homemade cornbread or biscuits. Keep quick recipes on hand for appetizers that are sure to please when planning a last-minute get-together.
Winter is a great time to throw a party to brighten spirits. Even though the weather may be cold outside, you can warm up anyone’s day with a fun party. With the right materials and a great theme, you can throw a party that everyone is sure to enjoy.
