Winter Wonderland Theme Party: Winter Wonderland Decorations, Snowflake Decorations & More
Ah, winter at last! The days are shorter, the air is crisp, and you're spending more time indoors under layers of warm clothing. You may be contemplating, as you drain your fourth cup of hot cocoa and drift to the land of Wynken, Blynken, and Nod, that it's time to host a big Winter Wonderland party like the one you held a couple of years ago. The party that was such a smashing success. Host a winter party while the snow still glistens and winter has a magical appeal. Have it while everybody still enjoys the winter, and some of the harsher realities haven't yet sunk in.
Early in the season, the wonder of winter is fresh in your mind, but come February, you may be wondering how you ever survived yet another winter. By then, you're digging your car out after the third blizzard in as many months. Timing is everything. Carpe hiems!*
Ergo, the Winter Wonderland Theme Party, brought to you by Party City! Open door number three, so that the astonished audience may take it in. Unfolding before us is a sparkling Winter Wonderland of silvery tinsel trees and wreaths, snowflake decorations as thick a snowdrifts, and elegant silvery snowflake tableware – beautiful but disposable, just like the snow in your driveway. We refer to the scene partly in jest, since we're on our 50th footer since Halloween, but these Winter Wonderland decorations, plates, centerpieces, and backdrops truly are a step above the usual holiday party fare.
Winter Wonderland is Party City's most popular winter party theme by a long shot. It's a complete theme, from the tableware to the decorations, costume accessories, and party favors, and it's an exceptionally gorgeous theme. So gorgeous, you might even be intimidated, the way you were intimidated in 7th grade by the kid who was physically four years ahead of you. But take comfort in the knowledge that however you put the party together, you can't go wrong.
Winter Wonderland: Elements of the Theme
Snowflake tableware: Delicate filigree snowflakes drift across silvery plates, cups, napkins, and table covers, creating a dreamy tablescape of a long-lost winter past... Okay, so this is nonsensical hyperbole, but the idea here is that your entire table setting will be winter-themed, from plates to personalized wine glasses. No matter which winter plate line, snowflake tumblers, and snowflake chargers you place on your table, your setting will be in perfect harmony, like a winter landscape under a blanket of new snow.
Winter Wonderland decorations: The deepest and best class of products in this theme are the winter decorations. They're hard to resist! – even if it never crossed your mind to host a winter party until today. We're talking about hanging snowflakes and snowflake lanterns, winter party room decorating kits, giant backdrops, and more, decorations that as a collection transform a room into something mystical and fantastic. You're bringing the magic of winter indoors, minus the wind chill factor.
Winter Wonderland party kits: Yay, a shortcut to the theme party of your dreams! Party City has assembled three types of party kits for Winter Wonderland: tableware kits, tableware kits with decorations, and decorating kits.
- Winter tableware kits give you the correct count of plates, napkins, cups, table covers, and plastic cutlery for a specific number of guests, say 50. If your guest list is anywhere within that range, it's much easier and cheaper to purchase a kit than to hunt and peck in a category and add products to the cart one by one. Deluxe kits for large parties may contain chafing dishes as well.
- Winter tableware kits with decorations include a decoration or two with the tableware you buy – usually a table decoration like a centerpiece.
- Winter decoration kits offer a core set of decor to create a small winter scene of some sort or to deck an entire room in an extravagant winter display of hanging snowflakes, silver garlands, snowflake banners and centerpieces, and more. Each kit has a different assortment of products; how much decorating ammo you get depends on the size of the kit.
Winter-themed baking supplies: Snowflake cookie cutters and icing decorations ensure that even your cookies, cakes, and cupcakes adhere to the party theme.
Winter-themed party favors: Keep the kids entertained with winter sticker sheets, stamper sets, finger puppets, and more. Personalized wine glasses ensure that the adults will have fun; let the children have theirs, too.
