How to make a winter birthday party extra special
If a loved one was born in winter, you can have just as much fun celebrating his or her birthday as all those summer babies. All you need to do is add personalized touches to the party to make the guest of honor feel extra special. Here’s how to do it:
Hot cocoa bar
Cold weather can make anyone want a steaming cup of hot chocolate. For a birthday party, you can set up a special bar with all the fixings so people can personalize their cocoa to fit their taste preferences. Set out bowls with marshmallows, homemade whipped cream, cinnamon sticks, peppermint candy and rectangular cookies. Also, go an extra step and customize travel cups for your guests. Write the name of the birthday person on each one or design them with a fun winter fact.
Take advantage of the winter season by hosting a roaring bonfire in your backyard. Everyone can bundle up and sit by the fire toasting s’mores and sharing stories. Hand your guests custom cocktail napkins so the gooey marshmallow doesn’t get all over their clothes.
When you’re done with the campfire you can have a snowman building contest. To prepare, head to a secondhand store and pick up used hats, scarves and gloves so everyone can decorate their snow figure. Once everyone is done, judge all the creations to see which is the most stylish.
Go ahead and decorate your home with snowflakes and evergreen trees. You’ll bring the outdoors inside and everyone will feel the spirit of the season.
Pick up a variety of winter-themed cookie cutters like snow angels, snowmen, snowflakes and pine cones. Then have all your guests take part in forming each cookie and decorating them once they come out of the oven.
