Whether you love it or don’t, winter is here, but that doesn’t mean that you have to move the holiday party inside. You and your guests can enjoy celebrating the season right on your enclosed porch with outdoor patio drapes and this guide for winter party fun.
Warmth Is #1
You may have friends and family who adore winter, but even they will want to ensure they keep warm. Any holiday party can be held outside, as long as guests are dressed in layers. Enclosing your patio is a great solution if you’re wondering how to warm up an outdoor party. You can seal your patio from the cold easily and inexpensively by surrounding it with transparent vinyl panels. Then, simply add a portable heat source, and you’re set to go.
Fun Winter Party Activities
Now that you’ve transformed your patio into an outdoor winter party tent, it’s time to decide how you’re going to use it, and the possibilities are endless. Perhaps you want to reserve patio space for the serving of your holiday dinner. Or, maybe it can become extra space for guests who want to wander out for some quiet chatter. Whatever you choose, an enclosed patio allows you and your guests to enjoy more of your home and the season.
Get the Fire Going and Roast Marshmallows
Who says you can’t roast marshmallows in winter? All you need is a bit of extra time to get the fire going before guests arrive. Choose some sturdy sticks and place bags of marshmallows in strategic spots, and voila—you’ve set the stage for unforgettable winter memories.
Comfort Food Cooked Outside
Your grill can be the perfect blank canvas for a winter culinary masterpiece. Whether it’s kabobs or steak and baked potatoes, you can offer up comfort food a la carte. Or, simply place a grill atop your fire or chiminea and cook a hearty soup or stew right then and there. Your fire can also be the perfect spot for keeping cider or cocoa piping hot.
Fun for Everyone
For the kids, wooden puzzles, easy holiday crafts, and any small snow hill can keep them busy. Outdoor winter activities for adults can include a game of holiday movie trivia or outdoor charades. Set up a few holiday props around a bench or hay bale with a selfie stick, and you have an instant festive photo station.
If musically inclined guests will be attending, encourage them to bring their guitars, tambourines, or other instruments for a winter jam session on your enclosed patio. Another way to have some musical fun is with a holiday edition of “Name That Tune.”
