Tables And Furniture For A Winter Party
Snuggle Up in Plaid…
The contrast between plaid and snowfall is truly beautiful. You can enjoy this setting anywhere in the world and make it feel like a party in the Scottish Highlands in the charming winter months.
…Or Enjoy a Festive Feast
A festive feast with a beautiful centerpiece made out of prunings from the garden, no less. This photo truly shows the joy of a well-laid table and a decorative centerpiece. Imagine enjoying Thanksgiving or even Christmas meals in this setting.
Grab Some Fur…
This is a beautifully natural-looking patio design that has a retro feel due to the fur, and a connection with nature too, something we all want to experience when enjoying an outdoor winter party. How comfortable does that bed look? Why not beat the chill with furry fun? Check out our video to see how to do it with your patio.
…Or Comfy Blankets
It doesn’t have to be fur, and there are plenty of beautiful blankets on the market that look great draped on your furniture. They are also wonderful for snuggling up and sealing in your body heat for an enjoyable time outdoors.
Gather Round for A Picnic…
Picnics don’t have to be just for summer, and neither do flowers! A special winter event can take place in a gorgeous space, and benches around a picnic table make an inviting space for your guests to gather. Frost-resistant bouquets of flowers are a lovely extra touch not often seen through the winter months.
…Or Take The Indoors Outdoors
Winter doesn’t always have to mean snow and rain, and if it has stayed dry outdoors then why not take your indoor furniture outside for an extra special feast or party! This is perfect for Thanksgiving dinner when you need to fit everyone around the table.
Embrace The Unusual…
This brilliant idea has embraced a tree trunk left over in the garden to turn it into a table! We love this excellent use of nature and the great outdoors.
…And Embrace The Inventive!
This is such a creative use of the winter conditions to create a comfy and welcoming space. A couch and a side table have been carved in the thick snow. Add some cushions and a throw and you’ve got an inviting space for your winter party that is bound to get people talking.
Use a Sledge As a Table
Use Your Sledge For Your Irresistible Christmas Hamper…
A picnic hamper can be a wonderful excuse for some Christmas indulgence, and the gorgeous presentation on a sled is a wonderful way to make that delicious food look even more appealing. Just be sure to bring a flask.
…Or For a Romantic Setting
This can be a truly beautiful way to enjoy Valentine’s, which is often in the coldest months depending on where you are in the world. A champagne dinner on a sled can be both inventive and romantic, sure to win hearts! Even if its a furry one!
Staying Warm With A Bonfire
Dine With a Fire…
There are few sights more welcoming than a roaring fire on a cold day such as this chimenea style wood burner and fireside dining setup.
…Light and Go!
This is an example of a light-and-go log in use. A wonderful kiln-dried stump that can be lit via a wick, also known as a Swedish flame (which you can totally DIY), and perfect for any month of the year.
…Or Light and Watch
A bonfire can be truly mesmerizing and magical on a winter’s eve and is great fun for all the family. Time to gather around and enjoy a bonfire party.
Food And Drinks For An Outdoor Winter Party
Pop Roasted Marshmallows in a Cocktail
There’s nothing like whisky to warm the cockles of your heart on a cold day! This beautiful cocktail makes use of a beautifully roasted marshmallow to create the perfect winter drink.
Experiment With Your Comfort Food…
Look how amazing these finger foods are! This is a modern take on comfort food and french toast is dipped in maple syrup, perfect for guests to grab and go.
…Or Prepare a Lunch Box
Imagine getting served a gorgeous lunch like this at an ice skating party! Cute little boxes with festive decorations are a great touch for your guests.
