Don’t let the winter blues get you — it’s the perfect season to celebrate! It’s never too late to get a party going at the last minute, so take a look at some awesome holiday party ideas you can use no matter where you are:
Cookie-Decorating and Gingerbread-Baking Party
For a party guaranteed to delight guests of all-ages, try building and decorating gingerbread houses and festive cookies. It’s a great way to showcase creative talent while keeping warm indoors. Kids will have the time of their lives designing their own yummy treats, and you can even take it to the next level by putting their creations together to form a ‘holiday village’. Are your guests particularly competitive? Make a contest out of it by offering prizes to the best and worst baked goods!
Winter holidays aren’t complete without our favorite songs. If you’re hiring musical entertainment, you’re in luck. There’s no shortage of talented musical acts: cheery Christmas carolers who bring the holiday spirit wherever they go, adept pianists who perform classic songs that warm the heart of every guest, and so much more. Depending on your party’s theme, you can even hire a DJ to keep everyone dancing through the night.
Kids’ Holiday Party
Finding local entertainers to make a kids’ party extra special is easier than ever. Hiring costumed characters based on their favorite cartoons is a guaranteed hit, but so is having none other than Santa himself be the main attraction. Another popular party must-have is a photobooth with holiday props! Guests will be able to take home a keepsake that will remind them of all the fun they had at your party. You can also set aside the traditional goodie bag and use Christmas stockings filled with knick-knacks and snacks instead. You can even ask the kids to decorate them beforehand!
Warming Up With A Winter Potluck
No matter what weather you’re having, yummy meals are always welcome. What can beat a potluck featuring our favorite feel-good food? Let guests indulge in sinfully delicious hot chocolate, bowls of hearty soup and classic macaroni & cheese. Make it a get-together to remember by choosing a cozy, ski lodge theme (local decor pros are always ready to lend a hand!) When drafting invitations, don’t forget to ask guests to whip up their best winter meal for the party!
Use these winter holiday party ideas to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year! Bring joy and laughter into your heart and home by getting into the holiday spirit and throwing a memorable holiday party for your friends and family.
