It’s that time of the year! Children playing, people singing, gifts, and family reunions make Christmas the perfect time to host a themed party. There’s no doubt about what music to play, food and dessert are specially prepared for this time of year, and decorations are accessible and cozy.
If you are planning to throw a fabulous Christmas party for your family or coworkers, here are some ideas that you can get inspired by. From ugly Christmas sweaters to gingerbread house competitions, you have the opportunity to create an unforgettable night!
Christmas Theme Dress Code
The easiest way of organizing a fun evening is to make a theme around it. Some of the most common items are socks, hats, gloves, and, of course, the iconic ugly Christmas sweater. Christmas-themed apparel will put everyone in a casual and relaxed environment where there is no need for formality and where people can be silly together.
This idea is an excellent option if you are also low on a budget because you can create your clothes and customize them as you want. If you want a chill, lovely party where people can have fun and enjoy the holiday feeling, an ugly Christmas sweater-themed party is the way to go.
Christmas Movie Night Trivia
This would be a great game night idea if you and your guest grew up with memorable holiday season movies on TV. Who doesn’t remember the classical Christmas movies from early 2000, like “Home Alone,” “How the Grinch stole Christmas,” and “Polar Express”? And who can forget the entire movie sagas that are made just for this season, like “The Princess Switch” or “A Christmas Prince.”
There are plenty of quotable phrases or famous pop cultural characters that you can use to create a trivia game. And if you want to spice everything up, you can make it into a competition. The winner can get a special gift from Santa or anything else you think will amuse everyone.
Unique Secret Santa Gifts
You are probably familiar by now with the classic Secret Santa that families and coworkers organize every winter. Most of the time, people that don’t know each other so well find it challenging to get excellent gifts for their partner.
But there are other ideas that you incorporate into this holiday season. Instead of gifts, you can try this year’s “cookies exchange party” or a buffet where people bring their family recipes and share them together.
The spirit of Christmas is much more than gift-giving. It is about sharing and caring for your community. Homemade food is a straightforward and lovely way of showing care, not to mention that it is a great ice-breaker.
A party with no activity is rarely fun. Suppose you want to use this Christmas party in order to bring people closer together. In that case, a decorating competition is your best option.
Depending on your ideas, you can choose anything between tree ornaments, cookies, and gingerbread houses.
Christmas is a wonderful time of year, and one of the best ways to get into the holiday spirit is to decorate your home. However, if you’re thinking of organizing a decorating competition, you might be wondering whether you still need to decorate your own home. The answer is yes!
Who knows, maybe your house will be chosen as the winner! For the indoor decorations use lights, garlands, and wreaths, and leave your Christmas tree undecorated to embellish it with the contest ornaments at the end. For the outside decorate your house with traditional lights and not-so-traditional, but very impressive inflatables.
Christmas inflatables like a giant inflatable Grinch, a snowman, a Santa sack, and an inflatable Christmas tree with built-in lights are a great way to add some holiday cheer to your yard, and they’ll also help you stay competitive. Inflatable Christmas decorations are easy to set up and take down, and they come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. With a little effort, you could end up hosting an incredible decorating party for friends and family.
Letting your guests be creative and enjoy their time while listening to Christmas carols sounds like the best party idea! You can choose the materials before or let the guest start from scratch, as long as everyone has access to everything they need. This is a great idea for team-building and better communication, and it’s also enjoyable.
