Celebrate the Season with These Winter Party Ideas


If you’re suffering from the winter blues this post-holiday season, you can always try throwing a winter party in your apartment. Spending some quality time with friends and family is one of the best ways to combat that New Year funk. If it’s too cold to go outside and meet your loved ones at a bar or a restaurant, try bringing the fun to your front door with these inexpensive winter party ideas.

Throw a Winter Potluck

Skip the extravagant menu and have everyone on your guest list bring over something delicious to eat. You don’t have to spend a lot of money putting together an elaborate shindig; just clean your apartment and open your home to some of your favorite people. If you want to give your guests something to do, you can make the potluck about more than just food. Have everyone bring some old clothes they don’t wear, gifts they want to exchange, or something they created themselves.

Start a Book Club

It might be a cliché, but winter is the best time of year to dive back into reading. If you’ve been avoiding those unfinished books on your shelves, try organizing a community get-together where everyone shares their thoughts and reactions to a book. If you don’t have time to read through an entire book, focus on poetry or some short stories.

Host a Winter Movie Night

If books aren’t your friends’ jam, you can always host a movie night instead. Bundle up and gather around the big screen to enjoy some unusual flicks. Pick a few titles that some of your guests haven’t seen and create your own mini film festival. Simplify your hosting duties and ask some people to bring a few appetizers. It doesn’t need to be a large affair, just a few good friends trying to make the most of the season.

Bring on the Wine and Cheese

You can’t go wrong with a formal wine and cheese party. Find a few high-end cheeses that you can serve with some of those leftover bottles of wine you’ve been hanging onto. Don’t be afraid to ask some of your wine aficionado friends to bring some bottles from their own collections. Throwing a party is so much easier when your menu consists of two ready-made items.
