Throwing a Christmas Party

Last Updated: October 27, 2022By Tags: ,

Part of the joy of the festive season is the opportunity it provides to get your favorite people in the world together, and to share some quality food, drink, and music. A good Christmas party will be remembered for years to come, and more than justify the effort you put into organizing it. Let’s take a look at how you might get your Christmas party organized.

Planning ahead

The more time you give yourself to plan your celebrations, the better. If you try to bring everything together at the last minute, then you’re setting yourself up for stress. What’s more, your guests will need notice if they’re going to show up at all. Remember that this is an unusually busy time for most people.

Send out your invitations – be they physical or digital – and keep track of the guestlist as you go.


If your Christmas party isn’t appropriately decorated, then you’ll be unable to create the right vibe. This goes whether you’re at home, or in a venue you’ve hired. Make sure that you have an idea of the space’s dimensions, and decorate accordingly. Draping tinsel, lights, and wreathes will all work nicely. Ideally, you’ll want to settle your theme around a particular kind of Christmas. Combining festive greenery with cold LED lights tends to work nicely. You can pick up outdoor Christmas lights online, so this will work wherever you’re hosting the gathering.

Make it interactive

Just having your guests mingle for a few hours is probably not going to cut it, even if there’s alcohol involved. For a truly memorable party, plan a few group activities. Pin the tail on the donkey (or reindeer) and karaoke both tend to go down well. Try to avoid anything with complicated rules that need to be explained several times.


If your party doesn’t have Christmas music, then it won’t be a Christmas party. You might put together a playlist on your favorite streaming service ahead of time, or you might simply use one of the pre-selected ones. You can even allow your guests to chip in with their own suggestions – but be aware that this might be a recipe for chaos.


Without the right food and drink, your Christmas party isn’t going to feel very Christmassy. Here’s where you can get creative with a range of recipes, prepared in advance. Offer a choice of vegan and non-vegan options, and alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. Certain kinds of food and drink, like Christmas cake and mulled wine, will always work. If you’ve arranged your party in the aftermath of the day itself, then you might find that you’ve got leftovers to get through – try to find a creative use for them!
