Make a cozy snow day at home even more special with a cup of coffee, an all-day fire in the fireplace, and new pink and white thrifted dishes.

One of my favorite things ever is a cozy snow day at home. How about you?

Today, coastal Maine received about 7″ of snow. The wind is blowing hard, and the temperatures are quickly dropping.

10 Cozy at-Home Snow Day Ideas

A cozy snow day is the perfect opportunity to relax, enjoy the beauty of winter, and indulge in some cozy activities. Here are some ideas to make your snow day extra cozy:

  1. Warm Beverages: Brew a hot cup of cocoa, a comforting mug of tea, or a steaming pot of coffee. Add some marshmallows, whipped cream, or a dash of cinnamon for an extra cozy touch.
  2. Snuggle Up: Grab your coziest blanket, fluffy pillows, and a good book or your favorite movie. Curl up on the couch or create a cozy reading nook where you can relax and escape into another world.
  3. Light a Fire: If you have a fireplace, light a fire to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. Sit by the fire, roast marshmallows, and enjoy the crackling sounds and comforting warmth.
  4. Bake Something Delicious: Spend the day in the kitchen baking your favorite treats. Whether it’s cookies, brownies, or a warm apple pie, the aroma of freshly baked goods will fill your home with warmth and coziness.
  5. Play Board Games or Card Games: Gather your family or friends and play board games or card games together. It’s a fun way to spend quality time and create lasting memories while staying warm indoors.
  6. Have a DIY Spa Day: Pamper yourself with a DIY spa day at home. Take a long, relaxing bath with scented candles and bath bombs. Treat yourself to a facial mask, give yourself a manicure or pedicure, and just enjoy some self-care time.
  7. Cook Comfort Food: Prepare a comforting and hearty meal, such as a pot of soup, a slow-cooked stew, or a cozy casserole. The warmth and aroma of a home-cooked meal will make your snow day even more enjoyable.
  8. Get Crafty: Engage in a craft or DIY project that you’ve been wanting to try. Whether it’s knitting, painting, or making handmade decorations, getting creative can be a cozy and fulfilling activity.
  9. Enjoy Outdoor Activities: If you’re up for braving the cold, bundle up in warm layers and head outside for some fun in the snow. Build a snowman, have a snowball fight, or go sledding. Just make sure to dress appropriately and stay safe.
  10. Decorate: Use the quiet and serene atmosphere of a snow day to decorate with your favorite thrifted finds, clean out an attic space, set the table, or rearrange your favorite space.

A cup of blueberry coffee in my favorite lobster mug starts off this cozy snow day at home.

And just the thought of staying in pajamas all day long makes me so happy.

Let’s grab some wood and start an all-day fire in the fireplace.

Yesterday I went out thrifting and I found two sets of pink and white dishes. And they are now sitting on the counter just waiting for me to style them on our dining room table.

Vintage Dishes

I ran the dishware through the dishwasher and spent the better half of my cozy snow day at home styling yesterday’s thrifted finds on our table; see this “Romantic Table Setting | Pretty in Pink” here.

On this cozy snow day at home, I had the unique advantage of spending it alone.

This doesn’t happen very often, so I embraced every minute of it, “Dabbling & Decorating.”

Like moving around this old green chippy apothecary cabinet that I found “Thrifting with the Gals” over the summer.

And now for a bit of a break to tend to the fire in the fireplace and flip through some of my favorite home decor magazines that I have on hand, like:

Traditionally, I love driving to the beaches around town to see the surf on cozy snow days at home. But today the snow didn’t stop until after dark, so it will have to wait until tomorrow.

    We haven’t had a substantial snowfall here on the “elbow” of Cape Cod for years!! Looks like Mother Nature is making up for it this weekend!!! As we speak, we are in the midst of a true blizzard. Snow accumulation is expected to be between 24”-30”!!!!
    I LOVE IT!! The wind is whipping through up to 60mph. We are fortunate to have a generator so we can just enjoy it from the inside of our cozy home!! As we, too, sit in our PJs loving it’s beauty, we pray that all essential personnel as well as plowers and electricity crews from near and far stay safe!!

    We got about the same amount here in MA, Ann! I would love to convince my husband that I need a fire during the day but it never seems to happen. We enjoy them at night though! Haven’t worn my pj’s out in the snow but it sounds like fun! Love those dishes! Jan in MA
