Having a party with a theme has become increasingly popular. Almost every celebration has been given a unique twist with the addition of a theme. And while many will argue that Christmas is a theme on its own, it didn't really come as a surprise to many that some of those celebrating Christmas or throwing a party for the occasion have started to look for party themes. If you are one such person, then you've come to the right place. Here are the five best Christmas party themes that are easy to prepare for, and are sure to be hits!
#1 Christmas Costume Party
A costume party is one of the easiest party themes in the world. You simply have to tell everyone to come in costume! Christmas costumes can range from a snowman, Santa Clause, and elves all the way up to shepherds, a star, and a character from a classic Christmas book or movie. Offer a nice prize for best costume so as to reward people for their efforts!
#2 Christmas Story Party
The story of the first Christmas is one of the classic party themes that will never go out of style. Decorate your party venue to look like a manger and hang a big star in the center of the room. Where the animals should be “sleeping”, set up tables with food from that animal on it. For example, you can set up a small table with roast beef on it and put the word “cow” on the table's front.
#3 Christmas Movie Party
There have been many movies made about Christmas, and everyone has a favorite. Throw a Christmas party whose theme is about Christmas movies. Grab some old movie posters and decorate the room with them. If you have a spare room, put a few Christmas movies into the DVD player and put them on loop. Make sure you serve the classic movie-like food!
#4 Christmas Carol Party
What would Christmas be without the Christmas music and songs? Have a party that is themed around Christmas carols! Tell your guests about it and have some of them prepare special numbers for the rest. Make sure there's someone who can play the guitar or piano as the song accompaniment. It can be a lot of fun to sit around, sing, and laugh at each other. Who knows? You may find you have a really talented friend! (Note: This is great for Christmas office parties)
#5 White Christmas Party
Did you know that “White Christmas” is still one of the best selling records of all time? That's because everyone loves a white Christmas. Throw a white Christmas theme by getting a white Christmas tree and decorating the room with silver stars, snowflakes, white table cloths and chairs, and silver colored centerpieces. You can even “frost” the windows with some leftover Halloween decorations to give the full effect.
Feel free to come up with your own Christmas party themes. Christmas is celebrated uniquely in different countries and you can take your inspiration from some of these customs. Make sure you really give your party venue the feel and look of the theme by putting up suitable decorations for your motif. Also, be sure you let your guests know about the theme in the invitation, so they too can join in on the fun!
