5. White Christmas
Perhaps the easiest theme of the bunch, a White Christmas theme is elegant and simple, and works great when working with a large range of age groups. White chocolate truffle cake pops and cheesecake bites match the theme perfectly (and taste great!) Add a pop of gold to the decor to provide a classy contrast to complete your classy affair!
Some of the best parts about entering the winter season are the bonfires, warm blankets and hot chocolate! Throw a bonfire backyard party this December complete with tons of blankets, some hot dogs and marshmallows to roast, and of course a fire pit!

7. Camp Fire
Can’t throw an outdoor bonfire this winter? Throw an indoor campfire party indoors! Complete the theme with campfire essentials like s’mores, hot chocolate and trail mix, and create simple fabric tents to really tie the theme together. Have kids take turns telling their best made up fireside stories!
8. Candy Land
Throw a Candy Land themed party this December complete with heaps of colorful candies like lollipops and gumdrops and plenty of brightly colored desserts like sprinkled donuts or cupcakes! Candy Land is suitable for young children as well, so it’s a great board game for children to play during the party. Feeling crafty? Recreate a life-size version of the game for guests to enjoy during the party!
9. Winter Solstice
To us, the Winter Solstice marks the day with the shortest amount of daylight, but it was once a holiday that signified the “turning of the sun”, and helped to establish a working calendar to signify when the summer months would be arriving. Now, the winter solstice can be celebrated alongside Christmas or simply on it own. Invite family and friends to celebrate the turning of the sun with good food and company, and keep the decor minimal and natural with some string lights and garland.
