December Party Of The Month - Winter Wonderland Party
Our December Party Of The Month has been announced and it’s the ‘Winter Wonderland Party’, quite fitting for this time of the year wouldn’t you say?
So over the next month what can you expect? Well, we are going to be throwing tips, tricks and some Tra La La’s your way to help you get the best out of your ‘Winter Wonderland Party’. So stick the log fire on, get yourself a hot cup of coco (or mulled wine, cheeky) and lets get planning.
Where to start? Decorations? Food? Party Bags? So much to think about, would be brilliant if someone were to write some helpful guides wouldn’t it? Oh, that’s my job isn’t it? Right, let’s start with Decorations.
Right you’ve booked your ‘Winter Wonderland kids party’ and your looking for ideas on how to make your venue look wonderful and wintery, well here are my top 5 tips for doing just that.
1 - Scene Setters
Scene Setters are an easy and quick way to turn a blank wall into something colorful and magical. You can get huge Scene Setters that will cover the whole wall or you can get smaller Scene Setters of wintery objects to place around the room if there is already stuff on the walls.
2 – Balloons
Balloons are delightful little things aren’t they?. They can really help decorate a room as people’s eyes are naturally drawn to them. However, don’t think about just going for the normal round balloons, why not spice things up, at this time of year you can get many different styles from snowmen to reindeer. You could even get a Christmas Tree made out of Balloons.
3 – Hanging Decorations
From Hanging Icicles to Vibrant Paper Chains hanging decorations are the perfect way to make doors and ceilings come to life. By hanging some frost white snowflakes to a doorframe your guests are going to start their fantastically fun journey before they even enter the room. You can also hang snowmen or penguins from the celling to go the extra mile.
4 – Tableware
Now, not many people see tableware as a decoration but this is where all of your guests are going to come in contact with your eye-catching décor. Making the table look as exciting and joyful as possible is key to setting the room off. Now you can use some of the other tips to help like adding balloons as table centerpieces, but lets try to be creative. First of all choose a colour theme, now with it being a ‘Winter Wonderland Party’ the best colours will be your reds, greens, golds and blues. Stick to these as a mish mash can really turn peoples stomachs, and you don’t need that. Start by putting some colorful tablecloths on the tables, this will help with tidying up as everything can be collected at once. Give each guest a plate, cup and knife, fork and spoon, and of course this need to fit your colour theme. Now I know your not going to have time to turn your napkins into a wobbly snowman but instead of just putting them on the plate, stuff them into the cup to add that extra sparkle. When it comes to the food bring them out on big platters, this saves you time as the guests can help themselves, just make sure the platters are all coloured to the theme you have chosen. Its small details like this that will give your party an edge over others. I will leave the food for another time.
5 – Photo Props
Now this may seem a bit of a weird one, but tis the season for trying new things. Imagine all of a sudden the reindeer or snowman that has been sitting in the corner the whole time is actually a photo opportunity. Before your guests leave give them the chance to have a photo taken with this beautiful winter creature and they wont forget your party in a hurry. Not only because how the place looked but also because they have a photo to remember it by. This truly is going the extra mile and is a spectacle that will get people talking.
