It’s the time for festive hosting! Whether you’re planning an intimate dinner or an open-house-style gathering with an extensive guest list, the aim is to create a Christmas party that leaves your guests eagerly anticipating next year’s event as they head out. We’ve assembled a selection of Merry Christmas party concepts you’ll want to borrow, no matter the style or size of your gathering.
Create A Spectacular Entrance
The first thing your guests will see is your front door, and it sets the tone for your Christmas party. To make a lasting impression, consider adorning your door with a festive garland and adding a matching one to your staircase railing.
Opt For A Pink And Red Color Palette
Diverging from the conventional red-and-green color scheme is a fantastic way to infuse a fresh vibe. Imagine gumdrops and candy canes, and consider embracing a pink-and-red color palette. The bonus? You can repurpose some of your decorations for a Valentine’s Day gathering.
Create Adorable Christmas Mice Crafts
Consider arranging a party favor craft station if you expect many kids at your party. These velvet mice with candy canes as tails make charming ornaments for your guests to take home, and they also serve as delightful decorative accents that can be placed on the buffet or amidst the batch cocktails, even if no kids are in attendance.
Decorate Your Chandeliers
Don’t forget to look up when seeking areas in your home to infuse some Christmas spirit before your party. Consider adorning chandeliers with evergreen garland and Christmas ornaments if you have chandeliers. Additionally, a chandelier provides a prominent spot to hang some mistletoe discreetly.
Create A Festive Mug Presentation
If you possess a cherished collection of vintage or favorite Christmas mugs, your Christmas party offers a beautiful opportunity to showcase them. Arrange them near your hot cocoa bar for practical use or visual appeal. They can even serve as unique cocktail glasses—why not get creative?
