Moms of Winter babies, we feel your birthday party pain. Summer kids get outdoor extravaganzas to celebrate their days, but cold weather calls for some more creative party planning. To help, we rounded up some of the best Winter birthday party themes around. Some use the season as a jumping off point, others embrace the holiday spirit, and some are just packed full of awesome inside entertainment ideas. Check them all out and give your Winter kid the party the n”ice”est party around!

“Even though we live in Los Angeles, and it”s not technically freezing over here, I still loved the idea of making a Winter wonderland-themed first birthday party for Ariella, our little Winter baby,” says Emily Klaparda, mom of two and the creative mind behind Emily K Paperie. “I didn”t want to re-create those typical Winter parties with penguins, polar bears, and igloos. Instead, I had the idea in my head for a rustic, shabby-chic party that had the Winter feel, but was a bit more girlie and sophisticated — just like our little girl!”

With gorgeous and cozy details including Manzanita branch centerpieces, glittery snowflakes, a sweet hot cocoa bar, and lots of sparkly silver and pink trees, this party makes us wish it was Winter all year round (minus the freezing temperatures, of course).

Amanda of Australia-based event-planning company Red Wagon Events creates absolutely beautiful, detail-filled parties, and the modern penguin party she dreamed up for her son”s second birthday is no exception. Full of creative wintry details, some absolutely outrageous sweets (the three-dimensional igloo cookies are blowing our minds!), clever signage created by Ham & Pea, and the coolest backdrop we”ve ever seen, this party is penguin perfection.

Melanie Holt of New Zealand-based event design company All the Frills designs gorgeous, whimsical events for grown-ups, so it”s no surprise her kids” parties are equally lovely and elegant. That sophistication — combined with a heavy dose of sparkle — had us falling head over heels for the adorable peach and silver party Melanie planned for her 1-year-old daughter, Sienna, and we think all the sparkle and the cool color palette would make it perfect for a Winter bash. Click here to see all the beyond-beautiful details, including the amazing DIY scalloped backdrop.

Gretchen Brittain, mom of three and the creator of adorable party printables shop Three Little Monkeys, created an amazing fossil-themed party for her son that”s full of creative, fun indoor activities.

We also love how this party is styled to feel like an old fossil excavation site with a vintage map backdrop, replica fossils, and old books, trunks, and camping gear. Click here for all the dino details.

What to do when not one, but two of your kids have birthdays during the most wonderful, chaotic time of year? Find a theme that they both love (in this case, Angry Birds), and run with it!

“December is a busy enough month as is, but add birthdays for two children to the mix, and you”ve got downright chaos,” says Jennifer Carver of Banner Events. “To simplify things this year, we decided to host a combined birthday party for my son Jacob (turning 11) and my son Landon (turning 5). Since they are both huge gamers, we knew this theme would be perfect!” And Jennifer thought of every single detail — from an amazing Angry Birds cake, cupcakes, cake pops, and more sweet bird-themed treats to some supercreative themed games like Capture the Egg, Bird-O Bingo, and Slingshot Lane. Click here to check out all the party details.

Birthdays seem magical when you”re little, and for the lucky lil lady who celebrated her fifth birthday with this whimsical, sweets-filled bash, they probably always will.

A cool color scheme and lots of lovely details make this a party that would work year-round, but we think it would be especially sweet during the Winter months.

When Chelsea Wood”s son turned 6, she knew she”d have to combine his love of superheroes with some vintage comic books she”d found at a flea market. The result was a comic superhero party that brought all of the kids together! Guests arrived dressed as their favorite heroes, posed in front of a homemade backdrop, played games, and walked away with their photos in comic-book frames! Super fun without a single outdoor activity!

Using on-trend neon as a theme, this bash was as beautiful as it was a blast. We love the indoor playhouses and balloon display, which makes this party easy to re-create when it”s cold outside.

Stephanie Keeping of amazing party site Spaceships and Laserbeams designs creative events just for little guys — seriously, if you”re a mom to boys, you have to check them out — but we”re betting both sexes would be equally smitten with this “Little Chef”-inspired birthday party, which would definitely appeal to a Ratatouille fan. Full of awesome and adorable food (we”re loving the marshmallow chef”s hats) and cute printables, this party is perfect for any birthday boy or girl who loves spending time in the kitchen. Throw in a cooking activity and a movie viewing, and you have an awesome cold-weather party! Click here to check out all the details.

When we spotted this awesome chevron-patterned and striped football party, thrown by Valencia Cheatham of Jewel Box Creative Studios for her 2-year-old son, Alden, we were totally hooked. A boys” party full of graphic patterns, sweet details (some of which will soon be available on Valencia”s Etsy shop), not a single video-game character, and just a touch of football (a sport that doesn”t wrap up until February!)? Yes, please!

When her almost-4-year-old daughter, Charlotte, requested yet another princess birthday party, Nicole of Million Dollar Smile Celebrations decided the old theme needed a new spin. “We watch Project Runway together, and she has quite the eye for fashion,” Nicole says. “So, when I suggested Charlotte”s Royal Project Runway fashion show, I had her attention. When I told her the “challenge” would be to create a look inspired by a princess to walk the runway, I had the judges” approval!” This inspirational Project Runway party is so detailed and over-the-top that we”re guessing little Charlotte will be talking about it for many birthdays to come. Make it work, birthday girl!

Whether your kids are ready to tackle a whole gingerbread house or just a few little men, this party will inspire you to make the baking, icing, and decorating a memorable affair! Glory Albin of Glorious Treats kicked off her holiday season by hosting a gingerbread house decorating party for her daughters and 10 of their little friends with The TomKat Studio”s custom printables, yummy treats — made from Glory”s awesome recipes — in traditional holiday colors, and lots of candies.

While Gloria hosted the party just to celebrate the season, it would work equally well for a kid who has a birthday in December! Click here for all the gingerbread fun!

“When I think back to my childhood memories of Christmas, I immediately think of the warmth and comfort I would feel when seeing images of the North Pole,” says Maureen Anders, the cofounder of one of our favorite party firms, Anders Ruff. “From Santa and his reindeer to the stockings, mittens, and candy canes, these were all symbols of the “feeling” of Christmas.” Maureen decided to bring the nostalgia of the North Pole to her own family — and to yours — with a North Pole party full of printables perfect for a cookie exchange, baking party, or a December birthday bash.

Gretchen Brittain of Three Little Monkeys always creates personal, creative parties for her kids, so when her daughter Reese decided she wanted to become a magician, a magic-themed birthday party was definitely in order! Of course, a magician made a stop at Reese”s seventh birthday party, but Gretchen also incorporated the theme into sweet treats (disappearing bunny popcorn, magic wand cake pops), a cool marquee light backdrop, and more party fun. Click here for all the magical details!

For Darcy Miller, editorial director for Martha Stewart Weddings and a mother of three young daughters, the New York City Ballet”s George Balanchine”s The Nutcracker is a holiday tradition.

The ballet inspired Darcy to create a Winter wonderland party filled with ballerinas, snowflakes, nutcrackers, and angels to usher in the season. Click here to see this dreamy party, which would delight any little Winter-born ballerina.
