Holiday parties are the perfect way to get everyone together for some fun festivities. But if you’re looking to give your yearly Christmas pot lock a makeover, look no further. We have some unique themes and party ideas for you to try this year.
All aboard! Jump on board to style your own Polar Express party this year. There are so many ideas you can use from train ticket invitations you can create on your laptop and printer to having the first gift of Christmas, the symbolic silver bell, as a party favor for your guests. Obviously, the drink choice for this party will be hot chocolate. Try this creamy recipe you can make and serve from your KitchenAid 6-Quart Slow Cooker.
If all your friends have dog children, let them bring their pups along for a pet-themed party. Prepare paw and bone-shaped cookies for the humans and dog treats for the fur babies in your KitchenAid Artisan Series 5-Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer from Buydig.com. Have the cameras ready to catch some Christmas card worthy shots.
Christmas Cookie Swap
Christmas cookies are undeniably one of the best parts of the holidays, so why not have an entire party based around them? Tell your guests to bring a plate of their favorite recipe then spend the evening trying every single one.
Ornament Decorating Party
Sometimes it’s fun to get some craft time in with a little wine of course. Buy a few packs of plain ornaments and art supplies and have your friends decorate something they can take home and cherish forever.
Christmas Cocktail Party
An entire party for the purpose of drinking multiple holiday-themed cocktails? Yeah, sounds like a hit. Get creative with your menu whether it’s cranberry Moscow mules or peppermint martinis, and encourage guests to invent their own drinks. Then host a taste-testing competition to see whose festive beverage beats the rest.
This holiday party theme is centered on charity. Make the theme of your holiday party “giving back.” Ask that each guest bring a toy for a child in need this holiday season. At the end of the evening, all gifts will be donated to a local toy drive.
Christmas Around the World
The holidays are celebrated across the globe. Take a trip around the world with an international food-themed holiday party. The best way to incorporate multiple countries is by creating a series of food and beverage stations based on different cuisine served around the world. Do some research for your decorating because every country that celebrates Christmas, Hanukah and Kwanza has its own traditional decorations.
This theme is all about making your guests feel like they are outside in the winter, without the cold of course. Decorate with white Christmas trees and cover furniture with sheer white fabric and place clear twinkling lights underneath to make it look like snow is everywhere. Use silver and white tablecloths and place mirrors with silver and clear candle holders with white candles on top. This would be a particularly fun theme for a tropical climate. Ask your guests to wear white or silver and your pictures will turn out great!
