Host a winter wonderland holiday party

Holiday parties are a blast, but coming up with a decorating scheme can be tough for those who don't want the celebration to center around one specific holiday. After all, you want the space to look more festive than a typical cocktail party, but you don't want to rely on red and green decorations.

Luckily, there's a simple and beautiful situation – turn your home into a winter wonderland! The snowy setting is sure to fill guests with the holiday spirit.

When selecting the decorations, opt for shimmery white and silver pieces that will remind partygoers of snow and ice. Hang glitter-covered paper snowflakes from the ceiling and string up twinkling lights – your guests will feel like they are dancing the night away on a snowy hill under the stars!

For a fun twist, asks guests to forgo cocktail attire and instead don festive holiday sweaters, scarves and hats. At the end of the night, hand out a prize for the most over-the-top cold-weather ensemble.

Remember, not every guest will win a prize, but everyone can leave with a favor! Delicious party favors, like chocolate bars with personalized candy wrappers, will be enjoyed by all. Make sure the favors fit with your theme as well – select wrappers that boast images of snowflakes or festive snowmen.
