Easy Ways to Incorporate The Holiday Season into Your Event

With the holiday season in full swing, you may be looking to incorporate the festive spirit into your upcoming event or even at your wedding.

It’s not too late to bring the holiday feeling to life through your party with these simple yet seasonal ideas:

Through Food:

Serve everyone’s winter and holiday season favorites throughout your affair!

Think warm egg nog, apple cider, mini bowls of chili and potato pancakes (with applesauce!) during the cocktail hour and/or reception.

For dessert, consider mugs of hot chocolate with marshmallows and the forever simple classic, cookies with milk.

Don’t forget about s’mores though! S’mores are a year round festive favorite; consider a s’mores station for your guests to get all toasty with marshmallows and melting chocolate, building their own warm and delicious s’mores creations.

Through Music:

Incorporate background instrumental holiday music throughout your cocktail hour with or even without the vocals.

Through Color:

Make use of red and green in your color scheme to make the holiday season come to life.

Red is such a strong color statement and ignites the feelings of the holiday season especially when accented with green.


Blue is also a great winter color that is both icy and cool. There are a ton of shades of blue to work with as well such as light blue, pale blue, midnight blue and royal blue. Be sure to follow our color scheme board on pinterest for complete color inspiration.
