Ideas for Planning the Perfect Holiday Party

Hosting a holiday party? Here are some ideas to make it a memorable event!

1. Try having a themed party! You can make it a costume party with a Christmas theme, a PJ party, an ugly sweater party, a white Christmas (everyone wears white), or a Christmas spirits party (like a wine tasting or cocktail hour).


2. Serve your guest themed foods and drinks. For some great Christmas party foods check out our post here!


3. Plan some winter games! Check out our post on Christmas games here! You can also have a white elephant and play "musical gifts". Everyone passes the gifts until the music stops and that is the one you get!


4. Center your party around helping those in need. Guests can bring toys or winter coats to donate to a shelter, you can go caroling at a local nursing home, or host a packing party for Operation Christmas Child, a ministry through Samaritan’s Purse that sends a shoebox of gifts/personal items to a child in a Third World country for Christmas—which is often the only gift the child will receive.


5. Host a trim my tree Gathering if this is your first Christmas in a new house- Putting up your first Christmas tree as a bona-fide grown-up is a momentous occasion. Why not have a tree-trimming ribbon-cutting, of sorts? Just set up your mini-evergreen (real or fake!) with lights and garland, and have your guests each bring an ornament to hang on your tree. To get extra-hokey, put everyone on the spot and make them tell a story about the ornament they chose. When the last one is hung, you do the honors of adding the tree topper and plugging in the lights!

  1. Wow!! This is such a fantastic. I am waiting for this year’s holiday event. Keep sharing these updates dear! Well, I have also been thinking to host an outdoor holiday party at party venues in Atlanta this year. Actually I have organized only indoor parties so this year I’ll be hosting a rocking outdoor party!
