Winter Holidays  Back to Events

You can't go wrong with good friends and food, especially when you can order everything from dinner to a complete party at our in-store Holiday Event Planning Center. Visit us soon to place your order or orders, and then pick everything up in one place in store. You'll have a delicious time along with your guests.

Dazzle guests with a simple centerpiece made by lining up pillar candles housed in glass hurricane lamps; wrap ribbon around the lamps. Or bring the outdoors in with our cranberry centerpiece.

Get kids in on the decorating.
Get out a box of non-breakable decorations they can arrange on their own. Or have them stamp winter designs onto plain tissue paper. For a fun gift swap, use the tissue paper to wrap inexpensive gifts in multiple layers. Have guests sit in a circle. Each person unwraps one layer of paper as a gift is passed around. The person who peels off the last layer of paper gets the present inside. Rent a karaoke machine and belt out your favorite winter and holiday tunes. Keep younger guests busy with an activity bin brimming with crafts, games, seasonal videos, and toys. For specific decorating and entertainment tips, try our Christmas and Chanukah ideas.

Find more time for fun.
Whether you prefer a formal sit-down dinner or a casual open house, your neighborhood Publix has everything you need for a special celebration.

The Perfect Gift Made Easy

Use our to help you pick the perfect gift card online and put it on your grocery list. Then you can breeze through the aisles and buy just the card you wanted in our store.

  • Hire a photographer to take formal pictures or give guests disposable cameras to capture informal shots.
  • To make gift-opening a game for everyone, ask the kids to sit in a circle with their gifts. Place a spinner from a board game in the center of the circle and spin it to determine the order in which the birthday child opens gifts.
