How to Plan for an Outdoor Party During Winter
Throwing an outdoor party during the winter season can be challenging, but if it is done right, it is a good experience since you will be able to do activities that cannot be done in summer. Here are a few tips to help you plan for your outdoor party during winter.
Create a warm environment for your guests by setting up a bonfire. Creating a fire will attract people to gather around and chat as they have their drinks. Besides, it is entertaining to do outdoor cooking over the fire. In order to build a fire, you need to create a fire pit or buy a portable one. A great way to create a fire is by building it on top of a cement block rather than on top of grass.
Ensure that there are enough blankets and pillows for everyone to cuddle and stay warm. Invest in good quality woolen blankets that will add more heat to the body along with the fire. Some guests may not come prepared to tackle the harsh weather, therefore, it is a good idea to have extra warm clothing so that each guest can enjoy the party.
Another great way to warm the outdoor party and light the way is by using heavy-duty candle holders and luminaries. This is particularly important because, during winter, the sun does not stay up for long. Therefore, make sure to brighten up your party by wrapping the lightings around trees.
Serve easy and hot meals in order to warm your guest’s souls. You can have an impressive meal that is cooked over the fire either using a grill or just an open fire. Serve the dishes and drinks in cutlery that is going to maintain its temperature. Whiskey and wine are perfect drinks on a winter day since it will keep them warm and entertained as you laugh over the fire. If there will be children, you can warm them up with tea which should be stored in thermoses.
When hosting an outdoor party in winter, do not give your guest seats that are made of metal because they will freeze and make it very uncomfortable for them. Metal chairs get cold quickly and you will end up sticking to the chair. Make sure to throw some pillows and cushions form the indoors to keep them warm and cozy in the cold winter. You can use old blankets to cover hay bales which act as seats especially if you don’t want to invest outdoor furniture.
Keep the children and the adults entertained through lawn games. Traditional games such as croquet, snowball fight and snowman competition will keep your guest entertained. Besides you can have a memorable experience watching a holiday movie in your backyard.
