Who said you could not organize an outdoor party in winter? And as the event planner, you’ve probably heard news about the cold and how the party is usually dull compared to summer, but with the right preparation, you can make it as fun and memorable for your guests. Here are a few ways to keep your guests warm at an outdoor party.
There’s no way we would have created this list without mentioning fire, because how would you keep people warm outdoors (in winter) without fire? I think this type of setting can lighten up the mood of everyone around. Imagine your relatives or friends who you hadn’t seen in years, all bundled up around the source of heat, sharing stories and laughs.
Patio heaters are one of those outdoor heaters that are easy to set up. There are several options of patio heaters, which include tabletop, standing, and the hanging option. You have gas, propane, and electric, with electric patio heaters being the most commonly used for the types.
They’re eco-friendly and don’t discharge odor, noise, or gas. So, it’s a great option.
Outdoor parties in winter are not the time to give out ice tea or anything with ice. But you can share something like hot chocolate, coffee, and spicy cocktails. For food, you can always whip out a barbecue in the spirit of an outdoor party. Or soup, kebabs, and hot dogs.
As the event planner, you should go all out in ensuring that everyone is warm and safe because outdoor parties in the winter can be very tricky.
Part of getting your guests to feel warm is making the environment feel right. And you can’t go wrong with candles and soft lighting.
When you can provide these or your guests, and with the right music playing, be rest assured that it would be a memorable night. Because they’ll loosen up and be ready to party!
Most of these points are pretty obvious, but it’s essential to do your research correctly so everything can be in place.
If your guests will be around a fire or it’s going to be a movie night, then giving the blankets for extra warmth is necessary.
Outdoor events can prove to be a lot of work, but it will go down in the books as one of those memorable events with the right preparation.
