It’s time to start planning your annual holiday party and you’re tired of doing ugly sweater or cookie exchanges. Or maybe it’s your first time hosting and you’re looking for a simple idea that will be easy to pull together but loads of fun for your guests. We’ve pulled together some fun ideas that will help you make this year’s holiday get together the best one ever!
Girls’ Night In – Pack up that pile of gifts, grab your favorite beverage, and hang out with your best girlfriends for an evening of laughter and wrapping up all of your holiday goodies. Everyone can bring a treat or drink to share and you’ll have fun while checking off an important item on your holiday to-do lists.
Holiday Movie Party – Turn on your favorite holiday movie and serve popcorn and soft drinks or go all out and create a menu based on the characters and themes of the movie. A holiday movie party can be as simple as watching together with some popcorn or complex and elaborate with costumes and decorations.
Tree Trimming Party – Getting your friends and family together to help decorate your Christmas tree is a festive and fun way to kick off the holiday season! Cookies and hot chocolate can be served while holiday music creates ambiance. Dated ornaments make great party favors for your guests to take home memories of the year’s festivities.
One to Give, One to Donate – Take this year’s White Elephant party up a notch and ask guests to bring a gift for the exchange AND one to donate to a local charity that serves needy families around the holiday season. It’ll make everyone feel great to give back!
Crafting Party – Whether you set up a fun craft for everyone to do together or you ask your crafty friends to bring their own projects to work on, a crafting party is a fun way to enjoy the holiday season and show off your creative talents.
Decorating Contest – There’s nothing more fun than a little healthy competition, so try hosting a gingerbread house or holiday wreath decorating contest among your friends and family. Whether they decorate their items at the party or bring them along for judging, it’s sure to be a blast.
