Parties are the heart of any festival, and Christmas parties are among the best and biggest. But getting together to celebrate the holy season brings with it many to-dos & yes, stress too! So, here’s a plan to help you host the perfect party ever without tearing your hair out. (To begin with, how do you even choose from trillions of Christmas party ideas? We tell you how.)
Here are some practical ways to nail your perfect Christmas Party.
Create a guest list
It is wise to streamline things a little early instead of rushing to do things last minute. Get your planner or use your Google doc to list out the people you are considering inviting. First, the immediate family members and your circle of close friends, followed by colleagues and finally, acquaintances you would like to socialize with. Once you have a list in place, think of a way to invite all of them.
Send out invitations
The first question here is, “which medium?” Do you want to print and mail your invitations? Or e-invite them? Or perhaps you want to send a personal text to each one of them? Take some time to reflect on this and decide on a medium that best suits your personality. Once you have picked, come up with a great Christmas-themed invitation message. Personal, the better. Make them feel they are truly welcome at the party.
Next stop, décor!
How do you want to go about your décor? Is it going to be a vintage Christmas setting? Or Traditional Red themed interior? (which is a classic choice by the way!) Or perhaps a contemporary theme with neutral colours and geometric Christmas motifs? Pinterest can help you pick the right vibe for this (Christmas party ideas come alive here!). Go through the pins to get an idea of how you can experiment with your décor or choose one that speaks to you the most through images. Once you are done, go shopping!
Ah, a party without games is no party at all! Entertaining our guests is an essential factor in ensuring they are having a great time. Depending on the number of people you plan to invite, explore some game ideas that can break the ice. For instance, decking the Christmas tree could be an ideal game plan given the theme, and since the game is played in teams, the healthy competition can bring so much life to the party.
