Winter Wonderland Party Theme

Take advantage of winter’s whimsical ambience.

About the Theme

Break out of winter hibernation with a blizzardy bash, or celebrate Christmas in July with a winter-inspired fete. Winter-themed parties can be spun into a few different themes: Go the enchanted forest route for something whimsical, incorporate metallic glamour for a New Year celebration or create cozy ski lodge ambience for a playful get-together.

VIBE: Glamorous


Venue Settings


Host this glamorous affair in an equally glamorous setting: a ballroom. Ballrooms offer regal architecture, high ceilings and plenty of space for eating, mingling and dancing.

White-Themed Menu

Lean into a monochromatic color palette for appetizers and dinner: white queso and mini quesadillas, brie crostini, pita and hummus, cauliflower soup shooters—the possibilities are endless.

DIY Hot Cocoa Bar

Set up a DIY hot cocoa station where guests mix up a glass of gourmet cocoa perfectly tailored to their tastes. Set out a few different mix-ins, like hot water and steamed milk (and almond milk for a dairy alternative), with marshmallows, mint, peppermint sticks and whipped cream. Add a couple bottles of bourbon for a boozy signature sip.
