If you are going to be hosting a Christmas party, you probably want to come up with a fun theme. After all, with the right theme, you can set the stage for an event that neither you nor your guests will probably ever forget. Of course, there are a ton of potential themes that you can use, but these are three that can help you get your creative juices flowing when planning your party.
1. Ugly Sweater
Ugly Christmas sweaters are nothing new, but they have seen a surge of popularity in the past few years. In fact, there are even websites that are dedicated to helping you choose and order the perfect ugly sweater for the holidays. An ugly holiday sweater party can be a good option if you are going to be using a small venue or if you don't have much time to put together decorations. Instead, you can just ask everyone who attends to wear their favorite ugly holiday sweater; this can provide enough decoration by itself. One fun idea is to host a contest so that those with the most original or most ugly sweaters win a small, holiday-themed prize.
2. Santa's Workshop
You're never too old to love Santa, and a Santa's workshop theme for your holiday party can be a ton of fun. You can set your venue up so that it looks much like Santa's workshop by constructing a "toy factory" out of cardboard or wood and paint. Red and green decorations are perfect for this type of theme, and you may even want to add in a few elves and reindeer. This can be a really good theme option if you are going to be hosting a kid-friendly party, but adults are sure to have a ball with the festivities as well.
3. Winter Wonderland
If you are looking for a party theme idea that can be a little more romantic, you may want to consider opting for a winter wonderland-style theme. There are many ways that you can pull this type of theme off, but one fun way of doing so is to add lots of white holiday lights for some pretty mood lighting. Then, you can add fake snow decorations all over the venue, whether you're hosting the party at your house or elsewhere. With this type of theme, light blue colors and snowflake decorations work beautifully. As the name of the theme suggests, the whole goal is to turn your venue into a beautiful winter wonderland.
Hosting a holiday party can be a whole lot of fun. If you don't have a good theme in mind, however, it can be tough to get started with planning for decorations, color schemes, food and more. These are a few of many theme ideas that you can try for your big party. Then, you might find that the whole event is a huge success, and that it's a lot of fun to plan and execute along the way.
