Tips for Holding a Special Event at a Restaurant Offering Igloo-Style Dining

by Gilbert Lopez

If you're looking for a unique place to hold your next special event, consider reserving a restaurant venue that offers igloo-style dining. Dining in an "igloo" is ideal during the winter months when you want to eat outside but it's too cold.

The dome-shaped structures are made to look like real igloos and feature clear plastic or glass walls to resemble ice. Event-goers will be able to easily view the outdoors as they eat, mix, and mingle. In cold climates, the igloo-shaped structures feature heaters so that guests can dine in comfort.

To make the most of this one-of-a-kind dining experience, you can give your event a winter wonderland theme, complete with sparkling decor and icy touches. You can use this enchanting theme to enhance almost any type of special occasion, including birthday parties for winter lovers, holidays, bridal and baby showers, and graduation celebrations.

Romance-inspired soirees, such as anniversaries and wedding receptions, will also be right at home in an igloo-inspired venue. With the right lighting elements and ambiance, you can give the space a warm, cozy feeling that will make guests feel welcome.

Here are some more tips for holding a special event in an igloo-style dining venue.

1. Comfort 

Since you'll be hosting your event outdoors during possible inclement weather, including freezing temperatures, wind, and even snow, it's important to make sure partygoers are comfortable. The restaurant will provide heating in the structure, but you may want to bring an additional heating source, such as a space heater, for extra warmth. Confirm that the eatery will allow it prior to the big day.

Another way to keep guests toasty is by supplying plenty of warm, soft blankets. You can place one blanket on each guest's chair and send them home as party favors. Have the blankets customized to reflect the event, such with the date and celebrants' names.

2. Food and Decor 

Other ways to give your guests a magical "winter wonderland" experience in the igloo is through food and decor. As one idea, cover the dining tables with silvery tablecloths and wrap napkins in snowflake-shaped rings. Fill clear glass vases with silver spray-painted branches as centerpieces. Decorate the branches with shimmering icicle ornaments. 

When it comes to food, you can go wrong with anything that warms your guests up. Some examples include a hot chocolate station featuring marshmallows, sprinkles, and whipped cream. For main courses, consider a variety of homemade soups, cheese fondue with a variety of vegetables and meat, and hearty stews or casseroles. For dessert, serve snowflake-shaped cookies.
