Holiday party season is a GO. Before you put out a standard store-bought cookie platter and turn on the Christmas music, consider these totally fun party themes. We guarantee you’ll get an RSVP from everyone on your guest list. If you need more inspiration, check out all of Christmas party ideas for food, drinks, and decor.
Ugly Sweater Party
Classic, but still deserves a mention. You already know what you’ll be wearing, so now you can focusing on baking this insanely cute ugly sweater cake.
There will obviously be tacos and margs, but this Christmas cactus is the star of the fiesta.
Christmas baking is just better with your friends. At the end of the party, send everyone home with their freshly baked goodies in festive boxes.
Mad for Plaid Party
Plaid all day, every day. Breakout your fave flannel shirt, dress up your table in plaid linens, and make this insanely delicious liquid flannel cocktail.
Cheesy Mug Party
Cheesy mug parties are the new ugly sweater parties.
Gingerbread House-Making Party
Set up stations with various different toppings and frostings in red or green bowls and watch the Pinterest fails commence.
The mad love for this movie will never die. Turn your house into Whoville with quirky, whimsical decor, the soundtrack for party music, and some themed props like a sleigh and a Grinch cutout. For food, make Grinch-themed sweets (like these adorbs cupcakes), and serve a roast beast for dinner, obvi.
You can hang with your besties and DIY your holiday decor all in one.
Even if you don’t live where it snows, you can turn your party into a winter wonderland with all white everything. Bonus points if you get an actual fake snow machine.
Start with only red and white decor, add a killer dessert buffet with everyones favorite Christmas sweets, then sneak in candy canes anywhere and everywhere (like as stirrers in milk jars!).
