Winter Birthday Party Ideas

By

I consider myself a winter baby because my birthday is in December. I was always jealous of my friends with summer birthdays because they were able to have fun warm weather birthday parties at the beach, pool or water parks. Now that I’m older and wiser, I’ve realized that winter birthday parties can be just as fun! Here are some ideas you can try for your winter babies:

Theme Ideas:

You can do a general “winter” theme or you can focus on certain ideas. Some options are snowmen, snowflakes, penguins, mittens and hot cocoa, Jack Frost, etc. There are endless possibilities for these themes when it comes to decorations, activities, food, etc. This snowman theme from Setting The Mood brings everything together!

Invitations:

Get creative and save money with DIY invitations. Use a mix of media (glitter, cotton balls, etc.)…whatever you can find that works with the theme. For inspiration, check out these popsicle stick snowflake invitations from Parenting.com.

Food and Treats:

The main food element is up to you…it really depends on what you think all the little picky eaters will eat, but winter parties are never short of yummy treats! You can do s’mores (with parental supervision), a hot cocoa bar (like the one above from Heidi’s Recipes), candy canes, marshmallow snowmen, decorated sugar cookies, etc.

Activities:

  • Snowball toss
