Winter Party Ideas | The LV Guide

The holidays are becoming a distant memory and long winter days are still ahead. From Murder Mystery themes to a Spanish Tapas night, we’ve got your list of party ideas to beat the blues with a mid-winter bash!

Party Theme #1: Guest DJ

Ask your guests to be prepared to make requests! Whether you have your own dj, spin your own vinyl or simply sync up your spotify, your guests will get their chance to be the star of your party! Start a list of all the songs played (Spotify will do this for you) and then you can save your playlist from the night and send it to your guests once the party is over! | Learn more about Spotify

Party Theme #2: Murder Mystery Night

Whether you choose to buy an official game online or create your own story, hosting a murder mystery party will leave your guests roaring with delight! Gather your Gatsby era costumes, grab your magnifying glass and get ready to figure out who-done-it!

Party Theme #3: Glamping

Camping gets even more glam when you don’t have to leave the comfort of your own home to enjoy all the perks of a night in the wilderness. Stoke up the fireplace, grab floor pillows, blankets and turn down the lights – bring the outside in. We love this idea of a Smore’s Bar as a finishing touch!

Party Theme #4: Game Night

Whether you choose board games or game shows, a rousing evening of competitive play among friends will have your friends asking you to host another game night before you even know who won the night! From Cards Against Humanity or creating their own version of the 1960s game Password.

Party Theme #5: Tapas!

This may be the best & easiest party to pull off! Tapas are a traditional spanish small dish meal…you get to try a little bit of a lot of different things. Each guest brings one dish and the recipe copied for each attendee. This is definitely a case of the more the merrier…more guests = more recipes. Recipe ideas: Cauliflower & Manchengo Hand Pies, Garlicky Shrimp with Olive Oil or even cold plates of mixed olives & cheese.
