Create an event that will be something unique and keep people from checking the time as they long for the door. By putting some extra fun into your Christmas party, you can make it exciting and memorable, rather than simply obligatory. Fun, unique Christmas party ideas can liven up the corporate event or add a special touch to a gathering among friends. Ensure that all of your guests have a great time this year!
1) White Christmas
For a party that is sophisticated and elegant, create a winter wonderland of white and silver decorations for a stunning display as soon as guests arrive. You can even encourage guests to wear white to add to the atmosphere of the evening. Serve white foods and beverages, such as White Russians, eggnog, and white chocolate. Even dinner can suit the theme with a white sauce entry and light coloured sides. After all, you wouldn’t want any foods that could stain all your guests’ white clothes. Carry the monochromatic theme as far as you can for the greatest impact. A live band playing Christmas themed music is the perfect backdrop for your celebration.
2) Casino Night
This is a theme that works for almost any large gathering, but can be even more fun as a unique Christmas party. Let guests collect chips that they can cash in for the chance to win great prizes or fun Christmas themed novelties. Music and dancing for those who prefer traditional entertainment is a good idea, while other guests try their chance at cards or roulette. Combine this with a 12 days of Christmas theme and offer guests 12 “stations” of entertainment, decorating each game table with a different day’s theme. Green velveteen casino tables will compliment your Christmas theme. Finger foods work best for your menu, allowing guests to move from table to table with ease.
3) Cookie Swap
Encourage guests to bring a few dozen cookies to trade. Each guest will go home with the same number they had brought, but they will be chosen from among the wide variety of options that everybody supplies. Allow for homemade and store-bought goodies so that those who are busy or not skilled bakers don’t feel left out. Provide colourful bags for everyone to take home their loot in. As an alternative to calorie packed cookies, you can ask guests to bring their favourite appetizer to share. If you don’t like asking your guests to cook, consider a recipe or wine swap instead.
4) Coffee and Hot Chocolate Bar
What could be better as guests arrive from the chilly outdoors than a warm, cosy beverage bar loaded with coffee and hot chocolate? Fill your buffet with flavoured creamers, whipped cream, sprinkles, and cinnamon so that each guest can design a delicious custom creation. Provide spoons dipped in white and dark chocolate for stirring a little more yumminess into each drink. If it is appropriate for your venue and audience, you could even offer tasty shots of Buttershots, Irish Crème, or Pepperment Schnapps as add-ons to that hot coffee.
