‘Tis the season for snow, cold, and a wonderland party. Parties are a part of the winter whether it’s a Christmas party, New Year’s Eve party, or a birthday party. When it comes to winter parties, the perfect party to throw is a winter wonderland party. Here’s how to get it accomplished!
There are so many things that I love about winter. I love the way the snow looks and how snowflakes fall, but I don’t always want to be outside in it. I also live in the South and so our snowfalls are far and in between. Recreating the mood for a winter wonderland isn’t hard and I love that I am able to do just that indoors.
Decorate with Handmade Snowflakes
If it’s a kid party, this is the perfect craft for getting kids involved and giving them something to do. Fold a few pieces of construction paper allowing the kids to cut shapes, and pieces out of the folds. When you unfold the paper, you have a perfectly unique snowflake. Hang your snowflakes on the ceiling.
Add Some Fake Snow
You can’t have a winter wonderland party without the snow. You can get 5 pounds of stuffing at a time at your local Walmart or craft store. Use this stuffing to strategically place your snow throughout the house. This gives you a beautiful snowy winter wonderland.
Make Snow Pretzels
Chocolate covered pretzels are the best snack for any party, but when you dip them in white chocolate, they transform into snowy wonderland snacks. Puppy chow with white powdered sugar is, also, another snack that can make your party a winter wonderland.
Christmas lights work perfectly at making your winter wonderland come to life. Hang icicles on the walls throughout the house as streamers. This will lighten up your beautiful party. Dim the lights for a more magical effect.
Turn the Heat Down
Let’s face it; winter isn’t as fun without a little cool weather. If your party is indoors, you can turn the heat down to make it a little cooler in your home. This will give more of a winter wonderland effect as your guests arrive. Keep your thermostat at around 65-degrees (you don’t want to be too cold).
