Four Winter Party Ideas to Delight Your Friends

‘Tis the season to celebrate! The colder months of the year can lead to the best event inspiration. Embrace the long winter nights with friends and family and partake in some frosty fun! To help get you into the winter wonderland spirit, our party planning experts at J&J Tent and Party Rentals put together four epic winter party ideas. 

Christmas Character Party

Get dressed up as your favorite Christmas characters for a night of holiday fun. Have themed food and desserts inspired by movies, and of course, have some of those movies playing. Spaghetti and Meatballs from Elf (maybe not the Buddy kind though), Eggnog inspired by National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, and Sugar Plum Cake inspired by The Nutcracker. Make sure to have something for the best-dressed winner to take home at the end of the night, like two free movie tickets!

S’mores and Some More

Nothing says “Winter Party” like a good ol’ bonfire with all the s’more fixins. Step up your S’mores game for your guests and elevate it however you’d like. Switch up the traditional graham cracker for Rice Krispie Treats, Oreos, or chocolate chip cookies. If you want to keep the graham cracker, add Nutella or peanut butter. Guests can bundle up as they enjoy the new twists and continue to spice up the evening with some fun games around the fire.

Hearty Outdoor Party

Provide warm wool or fleece blankets and throws for guests to wrap around themselves, and we would recommend some outdoor heaters. Make cozy zones throughout your backyard with a tent (or tents) and café lighting. Have a warm drinks station with hot cocoa, tea, and coffee. Comfort food is always a hit for outdoor winter parties – BBQ, pizzas, hearty soups, macaroni and cheese, and build-your-own potato bar!

Holiday Mash-Up  

Happy Christmahanukwanzakah to you! There are so many great holidays to celebrate in winter…Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and New Year’s, to name a few. Embrace the differences between your closest friends and family members. Have them bring something of cultural significance to them, or something that reminds them of their youthful holiday celebrations. Games, food, clothes, the possibilities are endless!
