Planning a Christmas party can be difficult. There's lots to organise such as party decorations, party games and of course, Christmas party bags.
So if you feel confused, don't worry; here is a quick list of 6 tips to help you organise an awesome Christmas party.
- Set Yourself A Budget
Before you start thinking about decorations, party food or anything else; set yourself a budget. Christmas can be a very expensive time for many families and setting yourself a budget is a good way to help keep track of the costs. It might also be a good idea to split your budget into sections. After you have decided the amount of money you want to spend on the Christmas party, delegate amounts from that budget to different sections, for example food, decorations, games, gifts etc.etc.
- Decide On Fancy Dress
Fancy dress isn't just for Halloween, many people have lots of fun dressing up in fancy dress costumes at Christmas parties.So if you're planning a Christmas party and you have room in your budget, perhaps you could make it a fancy dress party. This can be a fantastic way to add an extra level of fun to the party. However, if you're worried about the additional cost of organising a fancy dress party, you could look at some guides on the internet for homemade Christmas fancy dress costumes.You could also add a little bit of Christmas fancy dress fun without opting for fancy dress costumes by making the party a 'Christmas Jumper party' where everyone wears a Christmas themed jumper.
- Be Creative With Party Decorations
There are lots of Christmas party decorations to choose from, however with such a large selection, some people can feel overwhelmed; especially if you're trying to save some money.If you're skilled with arts and crafts, you could make a lot of the decorations yourself. Also, you don't have to use Santa themed decorations to create a Christmas atmosphere; there are lots of 'Christmassy' colours that you can choose: red and green together, lots of silvers and whites for a snowy feel, and maybe some gold.So if you want to make your party stand out from the rest, get creative and add that special homemade touch to your party decorations.
- Choose Some Tasty Party Food
There are many different ways that you could approach the food at a Christmas party. You could choose to serve food similar to a 'normal party' with a buffet selection of different treats. Maybe some gingerbread people with white icing to make them 'gingerbread snow people'.However, you could also approach the food like a big Christmas dinner with all the guests eating 'family style'. This could be a fantastic option if multiple families will be attending the party. If you wanted to increase the feeling of community at your party, you could make the meal a 'pot luck' style meal and ask every family attending to contribute a dish, that way when everyone sits down to eat, everyone can enjoy each other's food and each other's company.However, if you are considering a 'pot luck' style meal, make sure that when you ask all the guests for any allergies and intolerances that they may have, you share this information with everyone who is providing a dish; that way you can avoid dishes with ingredients that guests may be allergic or intolerant to.
- Add A Christmas Twist To Party Games
Just like with other festivities, you can put a Christmas twist on many party games. For example, many people enjoy playing the game, 'two truths and one lie'. However, you can make this a fun Christmas game by making the questions Christmas themed. If you're unfamiliar with the rules, a question is asked and the guests take it in turns giving three answers to the question, two are true and one is a lie. So for example, "What are the three strangest Christmas gifts that you have received; two truths and one lie".There are lots of other fun party games that you could add a Christmas twist to. For example, you could have a Christmas game of 'who am I', or you could also have an 'egg and spoon race' but instead of an egg on a spoon, you could put a Christmas bauble on the spoon.If you're searching for some fun Christmas themed prizes for the winners of the party games, you could browse through our selection of Christmas themed party bag fillers.
