If you want to have a Winter Solstice party but are on a budget, you still can still have a party that reflects your theme without breaking your wallet. The holidays are such a special time of year that you shouldn’t have to miss out because you can’t afford to do it the way you’d like to. You just need to improvise to have the Winter Solstice you want this year. This article will detail five things that you can do to decorate cheaply.
Inexpensive Winter Solstice Party Decorations #1: Philips 36-Light LED Holly Berry Lights
For a beautiful lighted look, buy Holly Berry lights from Target (in store). The strands of lights have holly berry leaves with holly berries in the center. The berries are the lights. 36 lights are on each strand and they are LED which are energy efficient. These would look beautiful around a doorway, a railway, along the edge of an entertainment center, etc. You can buy them from Target for $11.99.
Inexpensive Winter Solstice Party Decorations #2: Silver Foil Wrapping Paper & Paper Snowflakes
You can use wrapping paper in your Winter Solstice decorating. Simply buy some silver foil wrapping paper (or white paper with snowflakes if you can find it) and wrap picture frames that you have hanging on the wall. Glue or tape a large paper snowflake that you’ve bought or made into the center of the picture. You have an instant decoration that took you only a few minutes.
Inexpensive Winter Solstice Party Decorations #3: Yule Log
Buy or chop a round log to be your table centerpiece decoration. You want one that is small so it won’t take up all the room on the table. Wrap evergreen around your log (you can buy an artificial strand at Christmas time) and some red and/or white ribbon decoratively around it. Make sure that you cut the wood at the bottom in a way that it won’t roll off your table.
Inexpensive Winter Solstice Party Decorations #4: Holly Berry Strand & Candle
Make your own candle decoration by buying a strand of artificial holly berry (if you can’t find holly berry, you can substitute with some other kind of red or purple holiday berry) and a white pillar type candle. Wrap the berry strand around the candle and then display on shelves or on the table.
Inexpensive Winter Solstice Party Decorations #5: White and Red Placemats
To further spice up your holiday table, buy red and white placemats. Alternate them on the table. For example, Guest A receives a white placemat so Guest B receives a white one. You can pick up affordable placemats at Wal-Mart and sometimes even your local dollar store. You can also use placemats to put under your other holiday decorations like your Yule log or candle.
