5 Christmas Theme Party Ideas

Rather than throwing a run-of-the-mill holiday party, make it a themed Christmas party and it's bound to be the most memorable of the season! A Christmas theme party gives guests a chance to put on their party shoes during a time of year when things can be more stressful than fun. Whether it's a family get-together or a corporate party, themed Christmas parties are a great way to get everyone into the holiday spirit and make fun memories together.

Five Christmas theme party ideas:

  • Choose a favorite holiday movie and revolve the theme around the characters, setting, and plot. A few movies to pick from are A Christmas Story, Bad Santa, Elf, A Christmas Carol, It's a Wonderful Life and Miracle on 34th Street.

  • Celebrate one of the biggest winter holidays in the Caribbean! A unique idea for Christmas themed parties is a luau complete with leis, palm trees, tropical foods and BBQ, and island-inspired decorations.
  • Make the Christmas party a black tie affair and give everyone an excuse to dress up. Serve tasty appetizers, stock the bar, hire local party staff, and let friends and family feel like celebrities.
  • Christmas theme ideas for holiday parties don't have to be traditional. Pick a favorite bar or restaurant and simply throw an informal cocktail party. Ask each guest to bring a toy or present to donate to an important cause and use this opportunity to catch up before all the holiday craziness.
