Hot Winter Party Scenery


Before the winter chill sets in, start planning your winter event theme now! Whether you are setting the scene for a winter party, a winter play, a winter dance, or a winter photo shoot, there are numerous hot winter party scenery options to choose from to make your event come to life!

Winter Scene Setters
The winter wonderland room setter appears to take you through a white picket fence, down a snow covered path through the forest lined with snow covered trees. The top of the scene setter has the appearance of a banner with the words Winter Wonderland framed out by a snow flake on either side. This 65 inch wide by 59 inch high scene setter comes in two pieces and it is printed on thick plastic material.

The winter wonderland scene setter is a picturesque snowy winter backdrop with snow covered trees. This scene setter is made of a plastic material measuring 48 inches high by 40 feet long and can be easily hung up with double-sided tape.

Winter Party Backdrops
Customize your wintry scene with a party backdrop designed specially by you. You select the backdrop size to meet your event space requirements, and you choose the material: vinyl, cardboard, or mural paper. If you desire custom text on the backdrop, personalize it by adding wording in your choice of font, font color, and text placement.

  • The little cabin in the woods background illustration is an animated, cozy scene with two quaint cabins, set in a snowy scene with mountains and trees in the background.
  • The candy house background illustration features a vibrant gingerbread house decked out with delicious candy and snow covered ground with a pretty design on all four corners of the backdrop.
  • The gold tree backdrop features a small village of homes all in blue with snow covered rooftops. The sky is various shading of blue with snow flakes falling all around. Then in the right hand corner is a brilliant gold tree with gold decorations, which radiantly stands out against the blue and white background.
  • The Santa’s sleigh background illustration features a white, snow covered foreground with shades of blue hills and mountains added toward the background. Pretty white trees peek out from behind the hills and mountains. A blue starry Christmas tree appears in the right-hand corner of the backdrop. A bright, full moon is pictured just to the left of center with a silhouette of Santa swiftly driving his sleigh of reindeer through the night sky.
  • The winter background illustration is a photo quality backdrop which directs the eye down a charming main street after a heavy new fallen snow has blanketed the town. The lights from the shops, streetlights, and decorations brightly twinkle against the brisk winter evening scene.

Colorful 2013 New Year’s Party Supplies


New Year's Party Kit

New Year's Party Kit

New Year’s Eve is always one of the biggest celebrations of the year.  Everywhere you go around the world people celebrate the start of a brand new year.  Having a New Year’s party is fun and exciting.  It allows you to celebrate the holiday with your friends and family to make it a memorable night.  When planning a party you’ll need to stock up on New Year’s party supplies.

There are plenty of New Year’s party supplies to choose from.  Before shopping for the party first determine how many people you’ll be entertaining.  This is helpful in knowing the number of items to buy.  You’ll also need to know the approximate number of adults versus children since you may want to purchase some special favors just for the young ones.

When choosing New Year’s party supplies consider having a theme.  You can often purchase many items that coordinate together to help create the party atmosphere you desire.  Think about the supplies you’ll need to get for the party and make a list.  This will aid you in shopping for the things that are essential.

Some of the essential New Year’s party supplies include paper plates, napkins, cups, champagne glasses and serving items to aid in food and drink distribution.  Many people like to have a buffet style food service at their party.  For a buffet you’ll need to set up a central area that will hold the party food.  Opt for easy to eat foods in small appetizer servings that allow guests to try a little of everything.

When setting up the buffet table you’ll need to start with a table.  A large table that is located central in the room allows people to mingle and to reach food from all sides.  Decorate the table with fun New Year’s party supplies.  Cover the table with a disposable table covering or a tablecover roll that keeps in the New Year’s theme.  Then add some paper plates, napkins and utensils on the ends of the table where people can easily grab them.

Plastic Champagne Glasses

Some additional New Year’s party supplies include decorations for the walls and table.  A centerpiece is a nice addition to the table to make it look festive.  Put some decorations on the walls and hang some from the ceiling to add interest to the room.  Be sure to put some decorations on the door so people feel the fun party atmosphere as soon as they enter.

Create a special space for beverage distribution.  Try to keep the options simple to allow guests to get their own drinks.  Large plastic tubs are great for keeping beer, wine or non-alcoholic beverages on ice and ready for drinking.  Other New Year’s party supplies include plastic Champagne glasses for toasting at midnight.

Add some other fun New Year’s party supplies in the form of noise makers, party hats and  balloons to create a festive atmosphere for everyone to enjoy.  Using disposable or recyclable products makes for easy party cleanup.  Find out how to order New Year’s party supplies online by visiting http://www.Shindigz.com.

Countdown to Midnight — Party Games & Activities for Each Hour


We’ve put together a collection of party games and activities to keep a group entertained ’til midnight, perfect for a New Year’s party (but not just for New Year’s!).

Though we’re writing today mostly with adults in mind, these ideas can be adapted for teens and even younger party people who get to stay up late.

7 p.m. Guests are arriving. You’ll need some ice-breakers! Start the laughter and conversation right away by displaying a photo stand-in that goes with your theme: hula dancers for a luau theme, red carpet entrance for a Hollywood event, and so on. Station a designated photographer near the stand-in for hilarious keepsakes.

Another party trend that’s gaining traction lately is “Bring Your Own Appetizer.” If you try this, let guests know in advance that you’re going “potluck” in this area and how many servings of a favorite appetizer each person should bring. A natural complement to this is a “Make Your Own” bar for champagne cocktails or martinis. People will naturally share their recipes, concoctions and pleasure at trying something new.

Other must-haves for Hour One: catering party trays, Easy Carry appetizer plates and new Party Time martini glasses from Party Tableware.

8 p.m. Begin a scavenger hunt, road rally or geocaching activity. Arrange for designated drivers or alternative transportation if you’ve served liquor; or if it’s a teen party, set ground rules about traveling in groups.

Scavenger hunts do not need to be outdoors and could take place in a mall or museum. Also, items and landmarks on the list can be photographed instead of captured, which widens the possibilities.

If you do have an outdoor venue for a nighttime hunt, set out small LED lights and glow party favors for participants to find, just for fun.

Other products to consider for Hour Two: New LED Fairy Berries in Themed Lights.

9 p.m. Change the pace a little with cards, mad libs or bingo. Make them theme-related if possible, for example play blackjack or roulette for a casino theme, or create customized bingo cards to match a holiday theme with the help of online resources.

More considerations for Hour Three: Casino dealers’ vests and green visors and personalized photo playing card cases from Casino Party Favors.

10 p.m. Play “Guess the Celebrity.” Write down the names of celebrities on sticky notes, one name per sheet. To play, place a sticky note on a player’s forehead so that he or she cannot read it but everyone else can. The player must ask yes-or-no questions of the rest of the participants. If you like, you could place limits on each person’s time for guessing, or on the number of questions each player can ask. Reward successful players who guess their celebrities with party beads, Hollywood-style trophies or winners’ medals from Party Favors.

11p.m. Many people enjoy ringing in the New Year outdoors around a fireplace or bonfire. If this is not your scene (or it’s not New Year’s) pull out a trivia game for indoor play. From Pirates to Princesses, it is possible to find trivia games, questions and quizzes online for virtually any party theme you can name.

At any rate, we think a winter party nearing midnight calls for a soup buffet and really good bread to top off the night, no matter what the activity!

Other products to check out for Hour Five: Noir mugs from Personalized Party Supplies, party serving sets from Tableware/Catering.
