While holiday parties are a lot of fun, it can be hard to keep them from getting monotonous. But instead of throwing the traditional Yuletide cocktail soiree, why not throw a festive theme party? It's a fun way to celebrate the season, and best of all it's exceptionally easy to plan!
Use beloved holiday movies as inspiration for your fiesta. Ask guests to dress as their favorite characters from a holiday film of their choice. Note on the invitations that there will be an award handed out at the end of the night for the best costume, which will ensure that partygoers show up in some seriously creative ensembles.
Fill the room with the sounds of your favorite Christmas movies. Soundtracks are available for some films, such as White Christmas and How the Grinch Stole Christmas. You can also set up a television to play some of your favorite DVDs on loop throughout the shindig.
The decorations for your holiday party can remain traditional – holly, twinkling lights and mistletoe are fan favorites. In addition to hors d'oeuvres and drinks, have lots of Christmas candy on hand, such as candy canes and chocolates wrapped in festive-colored foil.
