This Month’s Party Tips - Winter/Early Spring Entertaining
fun places to go

Don’t let the cold weather keep you from having loads of fun. Grab a partner and go out and enjoy all that this winter season has to offer. Here are a few fantastic ideas…

Cross Country Skiing

Cross-country skiing in the City – if you live in New York you can cross-country ski around Flushing Meadows Park's Meadow Lake, or along Forest Park's winterwonderland trails. Otherwise, pack a basket with lunch and drive off with your sweetheart to a local ski resort. Enjoy a lovely day bundled up while skiing down the slopes.

Sledding

Go Sledding – bundle up the kids and go out for a day of adventure. Find a nice hill with a steep slope where sledding is allowed. Then begin at once to fill your winter memories with fun. It is sure to recapture your snow days off from school as a child.

Indoor Pool

Indoor swimming – nothing takes you back to the thoughts of summer like a nice warm pool. Escape the cold brisk air for a bit and sneak off to a local fitness club for a refreshing and relaxing swim.

Strolling through the park

Stroll through Park – take a winter walk through the park on a snowy day. It is beautiful when the snow accumulates and glistens everywhere making the park look like a winter wonderland.

Ice Skating in the park

Ice-skating in the Park - Ice skating in the winter transports you back to a time where all you needed to celebrate winter was the cold crisp air and the festive city lights. So get on your warmest hat, lace up those skates, and be prepared to relive a little magic from your childhood.

party theme favorites

Winter is a great time to gather family and friends to create warm memories. Try one of these wonderful themes to capture the essence of this cold season.

Winter Sports Party:
It's easy to plan a winter party around a favorite seasonal sport. Ice skating, sledding, skiing, snowboarding, and winter hiking are athletic options that can be accompanied by group lessons or trying a completely new chilly sport. To complete your theme, why not host your party at a cabin or use decorations that mimic the look of a cabin.

Winter Wonderland:
This magical theme incorporates the season's fantasy aspects along with simple snow details. Sleigh rides, ice sculptures, ornate snowflake decorations, and iced drinks are perfect for this elegant theme.

Winter Wonderland Scenes

It’s a Snow Party:
The purity and simplicity of fresh fallen snow is perfect for an easy winter theme. The party could include a snowball fight, making snowmen, cutting paper snowflakes, snacking on snow cones, or just enjoying the beauty of the season with white decorations and ice-blue accents.

Warm up with a Hot Cocoa Party:
Warm up the season with a hot cocoa party. Guests will delight in unique flavors of chocolates and warm teas, and hosts could arrange a hot chocolate buffet with different mixings such as peppermint chips, whipped cream, marshmallows, cinnamon, butterscotch, caramel, and other decadent treats. Chocolate scented candles and chocolate dipped mixing spoons are tasty accents. Try these LMK Gifts winter favors to go along with your party:

Penguin Party:
Penguins are the most popular cold weather animals, and an entire party could be themed around these quirky birds. Penguin movies such as March of the Penguins or Happy Feet are the perfect entertainment, and guests could wear all black and white to blend in with the flock.
