Christmas can be a very busy time, with party food, Christmas party bags, and Christmas fancy dress. So when organising a Christmas party for your child this year, don’t forget this list of 5 tips for saving time.
Save Time When Organising A Children’s Christmas Party
- Set Your Budget
The first step in organising any party is deciding your budget. This is especially important for a Christmas party as it is especially important during the Christmas period to manage your funds.
So, before you organise the party, set yourself a budget. Make sure that you have enough money set aside for other expenses during the holiday period, and then organise your budget to different areas of the Christmas party, providing mini-budgets for different areas. It might also be a good idea to set aside some emergency money just in case you need to make last moment changes to the party plans.
- Choose Readymade Party Bags
If you’re concerned about not having enough time to make your own party bags for the children’s Christmas party, don’t worry because our online store has a vast selection of readymade Christmas party bags, including bags for children of various different ages and different genders.
You could also take the party bags to the next level and opt for filled Christmas themed party bag that’s also a Christmas stocking. If this idea interests you, visit our Christmas section and check out our Filled Christmas Stockings & Sacks.
- Keep Party Games Simple
When organising the party games for your child’s Christmas party, remember you don’t have to go the extra mile and spend lots of money to plan some great games for the children to play.
For example, you could put a Christmas theme on ordinary party games. Such as a Christmas themed ‘two truths and one lie’, or you could put a Christmas twist on ‘who am I?’, or an ‘egg and spoon race’ but instead of an egg on a spoon, you could put a Christmas bauble on the spoon.
Another great way to save some time when organising party games is to choose some simple prizes for the winners from our selection of Christmas themed party bag fillers which includes treats such as tree decorations, Christmas yo-yos, Christmas crackers and more.
- Fancy Dress - Stick To The Classics
Whilst it can be fun to ‘go all out’ and choose an extravagant fancy dress costume for a Christmas party, if you want to save time, it might be more advisable to choose a more classical or generic Christmas fancy dress costume.
For example, you could opt for a budget Santa or Miss Santa costume, dress up as a Christmas elf, or choose a costume from the Nativity for a more traditional Christmas Costume.
- Serve The Food ‘Family Style’
Since the party is a Christmas party, why not take advantage of the occasion and serve food ‘family style’. This can be a great way to save time if multiple families are attending the party as each family could contribute a dish and when everyone sits down to eat, everyone can enjoy each other’s food and each other’s company.
This style of party food is often referred to as a ‘pot luck’ style meal. However, if you are taking this option for your Christmas party, make sure that you ask all the guests for any allergies and intolerances that they may have and share this information with everyone who is providing a dish as it is very important that dishes do not contain any ingredients that guests may be allergic or intolerant to.
