Looking for great Christmas party theme ideas?
It seems that everybody wants to have a party at Christmas and having a party theme takes it to the next level.
Don't worry. It will be easy!
Even those who aren't usually interested in having parties, or going to parties for that matter, get into the spirit and start thinking of ways to share time with friends in a fun and relaxing atmosphere.
These pages will help you with inspiration, tips and tidbits.
Of course, you don't have to have a special theme, because Christmas can be the theme itself.
But you'll want to consider what type of party you are going to have when you begin taking the steps of planning a Christmas party.
What types of Christmas parties are there?
There are lots of interesting, creative ideas for Christmas parties.
Below, and on the following pages, you'll find the top ten Christmas theme party ideas to choose from...
Lots of lights are in order and some Christmas music playing in the background.
What is your favorite?
In addition to carols, there are Christmas music collections from every genre of music - classical, country, rock, big band...actually probably any type of music you can think of, there will be a Christmas collection of music for it. So choose what you and your friends will most like to hear.
At this party you can serve a buffet dinner, snacks or just appetizers.
Make it clear to your guests so they'll know what to expect, especially if they have other parties they are juggling the same evening.
Add some fun games from our remarkable Christmas party games collection.
Gift Exchange Parties, whether it be for a cookie exchange, ornament exchange or "white elephant", are very popular at this time of year.
With a White Elephant Gift Exchange, everyone brings an unwanted gift to exchange with others. A friend has one of these parties every year and it is huge, with over 30 gifts being exchanged during the evening. There are some really interesting things that are brought in!
Another popular exchange is to have everyone bring an ornament and exchange them following a set of guidelines to make it more fun. See our page of party gift exchange games for suggestions on how to make your gift exchange party the highlight of the Christmas holiday party season.
You'll also find ideas for doing other types of "exchange parties" as well.
This one is really fun.
One of the top favorite parties is to have an ugly Christmas sweater party. Read about one here.
Give prizes for the best (worst?) Christmas clothing.
One party I went to that did this and not only did everyone wear their craziest Christmas sweater, but it was also a "Fake Moustache Party". Everyone wore fake moustaches too.
Don't ask why - but it was just fun!
I love to dress up for parties, and Christmas is just as good a time as any!
Pass out prizes for the costumes that bring out the best Christmas spirit. Enjoying each other's costumes will be a highlight of the evening!
On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me...a Twelve Days of Christmas Party!
This one has lots of decorating opportunities, from partridges and pears to five golden rings, as well as activities based on the song built right in!
Turn the traditional centerpiece of every home's decoration at Christmas, the Christmas tree, into your Christmas party theme by hosting a Christmas Tree Party.
