Whether someone is tying the knot in the middle of January or hosting a product launch as February rolls around, there are countless ways you can set the stage for a winter extravaganza. Here are 5 of the most inspiring winter event ideas for both seasoned and aspiring event planners.
1. Ice Lounges
Combine intricately carved ice sculptures with hanging ice walls and exquisite ice centerpieces, and you have the perfect recipe for an unforgettable winter wonderland. Envelope a sitting room in wall-to-wall ice curtains, columns, and arches to immerse your guests in the spirit of the season.
Throw in an ice bar, an ice sofas, and some scattered ice tables to complete the scene. Add a magical (and personal) touch by adorning the dessert table with an ice-carved pagoda, a lion, a palm tree, or whatever other shape your imagination can dream up.
2. Blue Lighting
Cool shades of blue can evoke the depths and highlights of winter—azure skies, frozen lakes, hanging icicles. From gray-blue to turquoise, you have the full spectrum of hues from which to choose.
Weather permitting, you can create an incredible fresh-air scene with a tasteful outdoor lighting arrangement—think deep blue complemented by vibrant purple and green accents. If you prefer to shelter where the frost cannot bite, then you can create an equally stunning effect with tent lighting or other forms of interior illumination.
3. Blue Décor
When it comes to selecting wedding décor rentals, combine whites and off-whites with gentle shades of blue to create a beautifully understated color palette inspired by the season of snow and frost. Mix and match other colors—pastel pink, reds, greens—to enliven the scene and inspire a festive mood.
To nail the décor, pay attention to the details, the flower arrangements, the columns, the table numbers, and the candles. Add touches of blue and incorporate complementary colors. When guests walk in the room, they should be treated to a coherent picture that hints at the forethought and taste that went into its design.
4. Warm, Comfortable Furniture
Prepare your guests for the winter chill with plenty of heaters and a nice selection of spacious, plush furniture that encloses them in a pocket of warmth and sociability. From the classic charm of a Chesterfield sofa to the round, sumptuous curves of a modern starry-gold sofa, the right furniture can add both seasonal appeal and enduring comfort.
5. Furniture that Glows
Cube bars that glow electric blue. Sofas and chairs that emit a dappled purple light. Neon green pedestals that light up the night. Winter is the perfect time for glow furniture that radiates light, style, and excitement. Cool but vibrant colors balance winter freshness with illuminated warmth and exhilaration. The result is a modern yet mystical masterpiece of scenery.
