Top 10 Christmas Party Theme Ideas
Looking for ideas for your next Christmas Party? Look no further – the Avalon Rentals team has some ideas for a fun and festive holiday party:
Party Idea #1: Bad Gifts
There’s nothing more fun than getting a good gift unless it’s giving a bad one! Set a budget and have each guest bring a wrapped gift. Gifts are assigned and everyone gets a chance to “steal” from someone else. Let the chaos begin!
Party Idea #2 Movie Marathon
Forget the high heels, ties and formal wear – dress for comfort! Get extra chairs and pillows (or rent some couches) so everyone can settle in for a few good movies. Suggestions? National Lampoons, Die Hard, Home Alone, or hit a few classics like It’s a Wonderful Life, A Christmas Story and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer!
Party Idea #3: Potluck Party
Take the stress out of cooking for your Christmas party by asking that each guest brings a dish. You can add a “theme” on top of your party (such as Mediterranean, Sweet & Spicy, or Desserts Only!). Don’t forget your holiday-themed table settings and decorations!
Party Idea #4: Happy “Petmas!”
If there are a lot of animal lovers in your sphere, host a holiday pet party! Your guests can bring their pets, and you even request that they wear their holiday best. Offer refreshments for pets and people, plus activities and prizes for the winners!
Party Idea #5: Christmas in July
Brrrr!! If the idea of snowflakes and icicles leaves you shivering, host Christmas in July! You’ll have to get a space that can be warmed to a “July” temperature and then create a tropical feel with palm trees, hanging lanterns, Hawaiian music, and tropical treats! Everyone can wear their best tropical wear and have fun forgetting all about the white stuff outside.
Party Idea #6: Cookie Swap Party
This is a terrific idea for a gathering, and also provides each guest with the potential for holiday treats to enjoy later. Each guest brings a few dozen of their best recipe, and you can spend time sampling and trading recipes. Then you all go home with a portion of each recipe to eat or gift!
Party Idea #7: White Christmas
As an opposite feel to a tropical party, embrace the coolness with a White Christmas Party, where all your decorations, table settings, and guests are clad in white. As a plus, your food and drink will “pop” against the surroundings, and white Christmas lights are perfect for a classy feel.
Party Idea #8: Cocktails
Who wants to try their hand at creating a new Christmas cocktail inspiration? You get the supplies, glassware, and a few recipes, let your guests do the rest. Everyone can test out and vote for their favourites, or try out their own concoctions.
Party Idea #9: Costume Party!
Whether ugly sweaters, Santa’s Workshop, Christmas movie characters or other, there are tons of terrific themes for a Christmas costume party. Don’t forget the dancefloor and holiday music so everyone can cut loose!
Party Idea #10: Gingerbread House Party
Get a few tables, some graham crackers (or gingerbread), icing, and candy – now you can have a decorating contest! This is an easy, low-key holiday party for a laid-back crowd, and everyone gets to leave with their creation.
These are just a few terrific Christmas party ideas for your next event, once you’ve made your choice you'll find all the party rentals you need here to create the perfect party atmosphere!
