Pick a Theme

How to plan a Christmas party? First of all, pick a theme. A great Christmas party is usually associated with its great piece, and that’s why setting the theme for the Christmas party always helps. However, this is not always the case, especially for Christmas. Christmas is about the special moment shared with loved ones. Therefore, make sure to keep the theme cozy and straightforward so that everyone can focus on the warm atmosphere, but make it specific so that it is focused and easy to prepare.

Arrange a Movie Marathon

Light the fire, relax, and immerse in the spirit of Christmas with family's favorite Christmas classics such as The Polar Express, Home Alone, or the Miracle on 34th Avenue. Then, enjoy a holiday treat with a warm drink and some snacks like hot chocolate and biscuits. To make things even more fun, ask guests to play Bingo together!

Set the Table Dress to Impress

Now, how to plan a Christmas party with a great dinner? There’s one important thing we can do for the Christmas’ dinner table, and it has to be a great centerpiece because the table is the source of an evening’s atmosphere. For example, a colorful flower arrangement and a candle in the center will create a lighthearted mood and transmit that feeling to guests. Set the table a night before the Christmas party to avoid last-minute scrambling.

Prepare Food in Advance

Try to prepare food ahead of time, as much as possible. For example, prepare sauces, salad dressings, and vegetables the day before the party. This is so that the workload can be optimally minimized on the day of the Christmas party.

For appetizers and snacks, it is better to choose an easy meal to serve, cold or at room temperature. Therefore, extra oven time can be avoided. A box of luxurious butter cookies, like Danisa Butter Cookies, can be a perfect sweet treats for Christmas party.  The irresistibly delicious taste comes from high-quality butter and other fine ingredients baked to crisp and rich perfection. Small but flavourful, Danisa Butter Cookies are absolute delicacies which can accompany your precious moment with loved ones during Christmas.

Simply follow those easy steps, and be prepared to be amazed by how the dinner party magically comes together. Just keep it fun, casual, and straightforward. If things don’t go as planned, just laugh it off and go with the flow. Any mistakes will provide a funny story to share at your next Christmas party.
