6 Christmas Party Theme Ideas That Will Totally “Sleigh” This Year- We are bringing you the most fun Christmas Party theme ideas that will make you a hit with friends and family!
This year has been pretty rough and you’re probably in need of some holiday cheer. But so is everyone else in your life! So why not throw the jolliest party ever?
After all, Christmas is all about celebration, cheer and making beautiful memories with the whole family.
Now, if you don’t know the first thing about throwing an epic holiday bash, then I got a couple of Christmas party theme ideas that will have you believing in the magic of Christmas all over again.
6 Christmas Party Theme Ideas That Will Totally “Sleigh” This Year
Drink and Roast by an Open Fire
The weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful, especially around a cozy living room fireplace!
A fireplace is one of the highlights of the holidays, so if you happen to have one, throw a party around it.
Put on some Christmas themed music, gather everyone by the fire and roast some chestnuts or marshmallows while you sip some wine, egg nog, or some non-alcoholic Rudolph’s punch for the kids. Take turns catching everyone up on what’s been happening in your life and enjoy each other’s company.
Throw a Wreath Making Party
Make sure to get all the necessary supplies to throw your own Wreath Making party, such as wreath forms, fur, pine branches, wire, wire frames, and glue guns. Your guests will be responsible for bringing all the decorative pieces like ornaments, cones, gifts, Christmas party favors, and ribbons. But no party is complete without some gingerbread cookies, eggnog, or some punch.
Swap Some Christmas Ornaments
A is a lovely way to celebrate the holiday season and it’s simple to plan, too. You can either have guests bring 6 or 7 unique gift-wrapped ornaments if it’s a small group or one large gift-wrapped ornament for bigger groups. Think of it as a Secret Santa exchange but instead of gifts, you exchange ornaments. Best of all? Everyone gets to take something home to hang on their tree and remember you by.
Throw a Holiday Potluck
Instead of freaking out about all the elaborate dishes you have to make, (and pleasing everyone, which is a major nightmare!) throw a Christmas potluck party, which is also known as an “Americana” in some Spanish countries.
That way, all you have to worry about is making the turkey, baked ham, or chicken. Meanwhile, everyone else will bring the side dishes like roasted red potatoes, green bean casserole, and desserts like gingerbread cookies, s’mores, caramel apple pie, Bûche de Noël, or chocolate truffles.
Pro tip: Make sure to check to see what everyone’s bringing ahead of time so you don’t wind up with two of the same dishes or one too many desserts.
Have a Holiday Themed Game Night
Throw a holiday-themed game night that will have everyone having a holly jolly Christmas. You can take turns playing traditional games like Pictionary, Scrabble or Monopoly. Or you can play Christmas charades, where everyone will have to try guessing what favorite holiday movie or Christmas character (i.e. Santa, Frosty or Rudolph) you’re miming.

Set Up a Holiday Cocktail Party Station
No one can resist a good cocktail party, especially when there’s fruit punch with an extra kick to it. So, set up a station full of mixers, spirits and a couple of fruits like cherries and orange slices by the punch bowl. Then have everyone serve themselves. But don’t forget about the little ones! Make some Christmas-themed non-alcoholic drinks for the kids, such as Candy Cane floats, creamy Eggnog, or this delicious frothy Holiday Grinch Punch.
