Need some ideas for that Christmas party? Here are some that are “tried and true”, and that will be fun for everyone this holiday season! 

Food 

Food is a the probably the most important part of the party, so make it fun or interesting. Something nobody would think of! A lot of times when we have people over, we almost always go with a breakfast theme. How about french toast?! Just yesterday, we had a party and the food was french toast, sausage, etc. So much fun! A little twist to a traditional meal!

Hot chocolate bar. This is also a great idea we’ve done before (and will be doing again). The best part for me is decorating! You can get really creative here. Set out some hot water or milk in, hot chocolate mix, fun cups, whipped cream, sprinkles, candy canes, anything! 

Entertainment

The close second important thing to a party. Entertaining can be fun, exhausting, or both. But here are a few ideas that are easy to put on and fun for you as well as everyone else:

Host an “Eggnog taste testing”. Buy all kinds of different brands/flavors of eggnog, and have the brave “taste testers” be 1) blind folded or 2) oblivious to what brand/flavor eggnog they’re trying. Then, have them use a grading system to determine the “best” eggnog. Make sure you have at least 2-5 people judging (everyone has a different eggnog preferences, so the winning eggnog should be the best of all worlds). 

Play a group game like…. a few games I would recommend for groups of any size are: Been There Done That (great for breaking the ice or getting to know everyone in a fun way), and Say Anything  (it can get pretty funny, pretty quickly). Click the name of the games previously↑ to see them on Amazon.

Gift exchange/white elephant. You can’t just exchange gifts…Here is a fun take on a White Elephant gift exchange: Everyone has a gift (whether it be their’s or someone else’s) and stands in a circle. One person (the host) reads a poem, but not any ordinary poem. Every time the word “right” is read, everyone passes their gift to the right. Every time the word “left” is read everyone passes their gift to the left. When the poem is finished, the gift you have left in your hand is the gift you keep! Click here for the poem. 

Well, I hope this was helpful in giving some ideas for your Christmas party. I know they are a hit at ours! Thanks for visiting, and Merry Christmas!

Until next time,
