Want to spice up your end-of-year Christmas party? Whether it’s a work do or a family get-together, these great holiday party theme ideas are as fabulous as they are fun.
Take the festivities outside for a garden party. Have your guests come dressed in pastels and floral dresses, serve champagne and strawberries and host the event outside, either in a beautiful park or just in the backyard. The weather is sure to heat up around Christmas so keep the fluids pouring and the snacks and nibbles at the ready. Scatter some picnic rugs, pillows and deck chairs to keep everyone comfortable and put up some colourful brollies to keep the sun at bay.
We may not have a white Christmas in the Southern Hemisphere, but it can be so fun pretending. The white Christmas party is a great idea, whether it’s a family get-together or a big work party. Make sure the air conditioning is cranking and have the guests come in their favourite Christmas sweaters and beanies, then serve eggnog and mulled wine. Keep the decorations simple, think white on white, emphasising it’s a very cold white Christmas celebration.

Christmas movie marathon
This is a great one to do with the family, especially if there are kids involved. Why not host a Christmas movie marathon? Organise a series of Christmas movie favourites, from the classics to the new flicks, turn the lights down low, get the popcorn ready and relive all those great Chrissy memories.
Great for the family and equally fun with workmates, a Christmas karaoke night is a great way to let your hair down during the silly season. We all know the lyrics to all those Christmas carols, so it’s no excuse for all our karaoke-fearing friends not to get involved.
Have your guests get dolled up as Mrs. Claus, or perhaps as one of the elves, at the next Christmas party or get-together and get ready for some laughs and a lot of fun. Yes, you can go as a sexy version of one of Santa’s little helpers, if you really must.

Let’s embrace the warm-weather Christmas and go with a Hawaiian-style Christmas party. Put on your grass skirts, get your coconut shells ready and hang ten. You might even want to take the festivities to the beach, or just recreate that beach vibe at the party with a fun playlist, delicious cocktails and tasty finger food and hors d’oeuvres.
Nothing beats a good old-fashioned Christmas dinner, so why not organise a Chrissy dinner party? You can go all out with the traditional dishes, including turkey and ham, or go for something more contemporary and simple.
