Winter's arrival can leave us wanting to hibernate, but why not make the most of these snowy, white-blanketed landscapes?
Creating a small winter themed gathering outside in the fresh February air can be more fun than you realize!
Bring your closest family and friends together and celebrate a "Let it Snow" theme in your own backyard!
Toasty Food & Drink Ideas
S'mores and hot cocoa are always the first thought when people picture cozying up outside, as it’s an important sweet treat option. But, you can also expand on your menu with a quick curbside pick-up before you celebrate the cool, crisp winter air! Offering yummy options to warm the bones like Swedish meatballs or delicious Buffalo Chicken Dip can be an unexpected way to meet your hungry guests' needs.
Warm Their Toes
Aside from advising your guests to dress warm, there are some added touches you can supply to keep your guests comfortable. Offering blankets to cuddle up in and a fire pit to relax around will feed the winter warmth vibes! Have some extra hats and gloves on hand if you have them for those that come unprepared.
The Little Details
Kick up your celebration a notch by decorating your backyard space with accents that add to the ambiance. You can give it a warm glow with battery-powered tea lights set in mason jars around the perimeter of your entertaining space. Want to add flowers but not sure how well they will fair in the cold weather? Take some small bundles of flower heads and freeze them in small blocks of ice in advance. Set them out in the yard in various places for pops of color and an unexpected nod to a Spring that will eventually come!
Embracing winter with those you love and welcoming the crisp, fresh air of the season is a great way to celebrate this snowy time of year. If you are ready to give this winter celebration a try, don't forget to place your curbside order 48 hours in advance of your gathering!
