With a smaller number of relatives, it’s time to consider a theme. Depending on your location, themes such as winter wonderland, frozen fantasy, let it snow are great for winter while you might be considering a vintage or monochrome theme for a warm weather. Make sure you inform your guests to dress up for the theme!
