Winter is just around the corner and you’ll want to plan a few big parties to carry you through the cold months! Fortunately, we have already looked into it for you and are here to offer the best winter entertaining theme of the 2012-2013 season: A Fire and Ice Gala.

Venue

Summer parties can be hosted in your own home and guests can spill out into the backyard and have plenty of room for movement; during the winter, you do not have that option and your home may be too small to host as many guests, so find a venue that can host all your guests comfortably!

Invitations

Make sure to send out your invitations well enough in advance, this can change depending on the size of your party. The larger it is, the sooner you want invitations to be sent out! Make sure to include the dress code: red, black and white, and the request for an RSVP!

Decorating

This party theme is both exciting and thrilling! Decorate the entire venue with red and white, including table settings.

Crystal decorations and accessories should glitter on your tables and ceiling for the ice effect; a main ice sculpture centrepiece would truly amaze guests and look incredible!

For the fire aspect, I recommend large torches in the corners of the room and red roses in glass vases atop each dinner table. A smoke machine after dinner, while people are dancing, would have  a very dramatic effect!

Food

A great idea for your meal would be to have grilled foods with cold foods; caterers would be able to fulfill this order without a problem, or you can do it yourself! If you don’t want to serve this type of meal, pick your favourite dish and incorporate the theme into its presentation!
