Winter brings a lot of fun activities, but it’s also when everyone bundles up inside, going a bit stir crazy. It may not seem like it, but it’s a great time to throw a party! We have a few unique and exciting party themes for winter that your guests are sure to love that will create lasting memories.
Scotch Pairing Party
You’ll be hard-pressed to find a winter party theme more decadent than pairing warm spirits with hearty and rich foods. This theme is perfect for a more intimate party of people who will appreciate comparing the different flavors and how they work with their food. Ask your local wine and spirits representative for recommendations regarding the various scotches.
Winter Solstice Party
Why not celebrate the longest night of the year? Invite your guests to enjoy an evening together, kicking off the beginning of the long trek toward spring. Create a menu of earth-inspired dishes that you’ll dine on in candlelight. Build lanterns and luminaries by the light of the yule log. Set up a DIY table for guests to create homemade feeders or orange pomanders to take home to the wild animals.
Winter is the season of blue! Hold this party as a potluck to see how your guests interpret “blue.” They can bring dishes that are blue—blueberries, blue potatoes, or blue corn. Or they can make blue plate specials, such as mac and cheese, fried chicken, or meatloaf. Create blue cocktails or mocktails and enjoy a playlist of the blues. Ensure your guests know to wear their favorite blue outfits.
A bonfire during the winter? Why not! You will host a memorable and unique bonfire party that guests will talk about for years to come. Greet attendees with a blanket and a thermos full of something to warm them up as they walk into the party. Roast s’mores and hot dogs on the fire while everyone sings songs or plays fire-safe games. Serve dishes that require utensils when it’s time to warm up. Individual pot pies are the perfect crowd-pleaser.
The cold weather is known for its dreary and depressing season, but these unique and exciting party themes for winter are sure to perk up your friends and family. Gather everyone together for a mid-season pick-me-up.
