We know that kids adore a Christmas party. Even more so one with a magical Winter Wonderland theme! So to help keep your party-styling hands a little less full this holiday season, we scoured the web for fabulous finds from table decor to favors to festive desserts to pull together such a fun theme. And surprise, surprise! The palette we chose isn’t the usual wintry silver and blue, but a crisp and cheery red and white! Take a look at these colorful winter wonderland party ideas for kids. Guaranteed to be a kid-perfect celebration!

DIY Decorations for a Winter Wonderland Kids’ Party

Winter wonderland for kids decorations

1. One sure way to set a festive mood is to know which hues to mix and match. For a winter wonderland party, have white as the basic color. Then sprinkle magic in the air by adding festive touches of red, as in this lovely party setting featured on Jenny Cookies!

2. A Christmas party wouldn’t be complete without a Christmas tree. On Revedecor, we found one that’s perfect for this theme. It’s a white Christmas tree with glossy red decorations. We love how the red just pops against the white!

3. Even a mini backdrop adds a lot to the overall party ambiance. Take this lovely wall decoration we found on the blog of Chris Nease of Celebrations at Home, which would suit this purpose perfectly. A design of Christmas ornaments was mounted in an ornate mirror frame. How creative! And if you have the luxury of time, it would be fun to hand paint a design like this with your kids. Be sure to check out the colorful details of Chris’ styled shoot using printables from Love The Day, too! Photography by Laura Gordon.

4. Jump start the party the moment the kiddie guests arrive on your doorstep. Something as simple as this snowflake-adorned wreath from BHG will do the trick. What a charming welcome!

5. Fill the party venue with white and red ornaments, like this whimsical mantel display from Making Home Base. Bring favorite Christmas kiddie fantasies to life by decorating your space with little tin soldiers, reindeer, cute Santa figures, and candlesticks. If the items you have are multi-colored, simply spray-paint them white to match your Winter Wonderland theme!

Lovely Desserts and Favors for the Kids

6. Even if the party is for kids, the table setting should not be taken for granted. The littlest of details can be a big thrill. This place setting idea from Home Ideas Mag, for instance, has the plates and cutlery assembled like a snowman—sure to make eating time even more fun!

7. A whimsical cake is definitely one of the things that kids look forward to at every party. For this wintry theme, do away with the traditional chocolate cake and go for a red velvet one instead! On Raspberri Cupcakes, we stumbled upon this delightful cake decorated with macaron snowmen on top. Perfect for a winter wonderland birthday, too!

8. Given this winter wonderland motif, you can be extra creative with the dessert station! Give the kids a blast of sweet ‘snowy’ treats, like these Christmas candy cane cake pops we were lucky to have found on Niner Bakes.

9. Keep the fun going from the beginning to the end of the party! One way to do that is to have Christmas stockings that are brimming with goodies. This classic stocking originally from Feather and Black and found on Pinterest is a delightful example, decorated with a gingerbread man.

10. Make the kids ten times happier with holiday party favors like these white chocolate dipped peppermint sticks from Sweet Paul, found on Jack*s Master Design. They may not remember what they’re called, but they will definitely remember the yummy minty-chocolatey burst in every bite!

11. For party drinks, kids will surely love chocolate milk served in bottles dressed up a la jolly little snowmen! Pottery Barn Kids did just that, and shares the simple tutorial, too!
