Why wait until Christmas and New Year to host a winter celebration? The cold weather is the perfect reason to gather your family and friends together for a good old fashioned party. And for me, a party is not a party unless it has a theme to tie it all together! But if you don’t want to go down the Santa hats and reindeer route, what’s left?
Cocoa and cabins! Embrace the cosy furs and warming wines against a backdrop of outdoorsy elegance. A rustic winter theme like this calls for tartans, fireplaces, wooden accents and stag motifs!

Serve crisp French wines and warm cocktails, alongside an evening buffet of marshmallows and tiny bites. Followed by hot chocolate or vin chaud. For seating, go for luxurious pillows and throws to get that mountain-top feel.
These gorgeous snowy wreaths look gorgeous hung behind your buffet table, and string lights are your best friend to create a warm and cosy atmosphere. And don’t forget those decorative skis!

Invite guests into your own personal snow globe – floor-to-ceiling white and icy blue with snowflake accents for a classic, elegant atmosphere.
Go overboard with your Christmas greenery and cover your event space with trees and garlands. Bring the outside in by spraying them with faux snow to really give your guests a feeling of living inside a wintery snowglobe scene.
These DIY cotton wool snow garlands can hang above your dessert buffet with twinkling fairy lights to create a magical feature.
Why go for snow when you could have the exotic, luxurious Orient? Bright Christmas red and green makes way for deep, opulent red and gold.

Instead of the busy, over-the-top traditional Christmas party, an Asian theme allows for a sleek, minimal design with lots of detail. Give the room an authentic look by decorating your tables with Chinese good luck coins and sweet paper fans.
Your party menu should be bite-size and filled with flavour. These mini tasting glasses from Party Pieces can be filled with a simple Asian noodle salad and satay, and fun fortune cookies are your solution for dessert. They also make for great interactive decorations!
