It’s that time of the season when our front door can at times feel like a revolving door, bringing guests in and out with equal measure and gusto! We welcome friends and family from out of town, we host gatherings, and introduce neighbors… and while I pretty much feel like a good fete can be had at any scale, from laid back coffee chats to a full on event, there are a few party ice breakers that can help get any soiree off to a great start. 

5 Top Party Ice Breakers to Get your Holiday Party Going!

1. Build-Your-Own Food Stations

We all have our own preferences when it comes to food, these buffet style set ups allow everyone to customize their plate and it’s a great ice breaker because it gets everyone up and moving around, chatting about favorites, different food interests and more. Plus, it’s easier on the hostess, which means more time for chatting and introducing new friends, instead of hiding away in the kitchen!

A few of our favorite food station ideas:

    • Banana Pops Bar
    • Caramel Apple Bar

2. Activity Stations 

Giving people something to do gets them mingling and talking to each other. Find simple games that don’t take a lot of set up or instruction and set up stations around your space.

3. Conversation Starters

Disperse and set up little questions throughout your space to encourage mingling. We’ve all been to parties where you may not know everyone, so think of conversation cards as little wingmen. They are the bridge between you and your guests… or that person you think looks like a fun, cool new friend, but you might not approach on your own.

4. Jazz it Up with a Themed Party Drink 

There’s almost nothing better at making someone feel comfortable than putting a drink or an appetizer in their hand.

Have you ever noticed how awkward it can feel when you’re talking with someone and aren’t sure what to do with your hands? Is it appropriate to cross them? Put them in your pockets? Flail and hit someone as you talk with grandiose gestures?

Circumvent it all with a themed drink… one of my favorite party ice breakers!

We recently shared The Best Holiday Punch Recipe, and this is the perfect party drink that can be easily customized to your liking!

Plus, you can grab everything at Sam’s Club now at a great value on all those beverages you’ll need for holiday entertaining, so you’re ready and prepared when the time comes! AND save time during the busy holiday shopping season with Club Pickup! Order online, and Sam’s Club will have everything ready for you when you arrive.

Side note: My family LOVES when I get the Sprite® Mini Cans, which are new to Sam’s Club this holiday season, because they know I’ll save a few to make punch for entertaining… and they get to save some to sip on throughout the week! Also look for Coca-Cola® mini cans, Gold Peak® Sweet Tea, Dasani®, and Diet Coke® too.
