Eight Christmas Party Themes You Should Try

Oct 26, 2022

‘Tis the season to be jolly, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la! ????

When it comes to Christmas, there’s no shortage of cheer. From parties and gift-giving to festive decorations and twinkling lights, the holiday season is a time to celebrate with family and friends. 

But what exactly makes Christmas so special? While there are many different reasons, one thing is for sure: Christmas wouldn’t be the same without its recognizable themes.

Every year, people all over the world begin to prepare for the holiday. One of the most important aspects of Christmas preparations is choosing the perfect theme. 

A Christmas theme can set the tone for the entire holiday season, and it can be a lot of fun to choose one that reflects your personal style. 


So look no further because here are eight Christmas party theme ideas that you can draw inspiration from.

1.  A Charlie Brown Christmas.

This theme is perfect for those who are looking to channel their inner child. There’s something about a Charlie Brown Christmas theme that just oozes nostalgia. 

For the holidays, there’s the never-ending list of things to do, the pressure to find the perfect gift, what food and pastries to be served, what wine or bubbly should you pour, and of course, how you’ll make your home worthy of the holiday. It’s enough to make even the jolliest among us feel a little Grinchy. 

Thankfully, there’s always a Charlie Brown Christmas to remind us that the true meaning of the season is far simpler than we make it out to be. With its sentimental story and catchy tunes, the classic animated special has been winning hearts for decades. 

 2.  A Very Cirque Christmas.

You don’t have to be in a circus to enjoy the festive atmosphere of the holidays. This year, why not get your family and friends together for a Very Cirque Christmas? 

Christmas is a time for friends, family, and celebrations with loved ones. But it’s also a time for fun and festivities, and there’s no better way to celebrate than with a very Cirque Christmas theme! 

You’ll need to make sure you have your circus-themed decorations up, your Christmas playlist ready, and your holiday recipes all set. 

If you have time, start planning what to cook, and how to decorate and wrap, so that you can have everything ready for your guests. Don’t fuss over what you’re going to serve because you’ll find the right recipe in just one Google search!

3.  A Dickensian Christmas.

For a more sophisticated affair, transport your guests back to Victorian England with this elegant theme. Serve tea and scones in dainty chinaware, and be sure to set out plenty of books by Charles Dickens for your guests to enjoy.

A Dickensian Christmas is a traditional English Christmas, celebrated on Christmas Eve. This Christmas tradition is based on the writings of Charles Dickens. 

You can decorate your party with old-fashioned Christmas decorations. You can even get some people dressed up as characters from Dickens’s novels such as Tiny Tim and Ebenezer Scrooge.

This holiday typically includes the Twelve Days of Christmas, which are days that are usually filled with different activities. Some of these activities can include a dance, a carol service, and a visit to Santa Claus. 

Traditionally Christmas is celebrated at home with family and friends, but it can also be enjoyed in a pub or hotel.

4.  A Hawaiian Holiday.

This year, why not have a Hawaiian Christmas celebration? The idea of celebrating a Hawaiian Christmas might seem strange at first, but it can be really fun to switch up your traditional Christmas celebration with something new. 

There are many ways to decorate your home in festive Hawaiian style and enjoy the island life. You can create a Hawaiian Christmas tree by using leis as ornaments and wrapping them with lights. You can also make your own Hawaiian Christmas wreath from pineapples and leis. 

This one is perfect for those who live in warmer climates (or those who are just dreaming of a warm Christmas). Put on your best grass skirt, floral tops, and hats,  and enjoy tropical drinks by the pool (if it’s warm enough) while listening to some festive Reggae Christmas tunes.

5.  A White Christmas.

Sometimes it’s hard to decide what to do for a theme, but there is no reason to stress over it because you can use a well-known theme, the White Christmas. 

Have a White Christmas theme by decorating your table with white, silver, and gold as well as using a white tablecloth and white napkins. You can also put white ornaments on your tree or a white snowflake on the top.

Embrace the cold weather with this winter wonderland theme. Decorate your garage, lawn, or balcony with sparkling white lights and icicles, serve up hot cocoa and roasted chestnuts, and don’t forget to put up a fake fireplace (if you don’t have a real one) for added ambiance!

6.  A Nutcracker Christmas.

The Nutcracker is a classic ballet that has been loved by many for years. It’s a story about a girl named Clara who is given a nutcracker doll by her godfather. The doll comes alive on Christmas Eve and protects Clara from the evil Mouse King and his army of rats. 

If you are a fan of the Nutcracker movie or ballet, this is a perfect theme for your family to enjoy. You can build a stage and have a play. You can also use props, costumes, or even your own handmade decorations to make your performance as unique as you would like it to be. 

There are many different traditions that make up a Nutcracker Christmas that the entire family will love, including dancing around the Christmas tree, listening to a Christmas story, and of course, watching the classic movie. 

This is a great family tradition to enjoy, so invite your friends and family over for some dinner and entertainment.

7.  An Ugly Christmas Sweater Party.

It’s that time of year when you’re thinking about what to wear for your holiday party. 

The Ugly Christmas Sweater Party is a great idea for the occasion. It’s a good way to show your holiday spirit without being too over the top. There are lots of ways to decorate for this party, so choose something you think will fit with your event and get creative!

You can also ask your guests to come sporting their ugliest holiday sweaters and to make things even more interesting, award prizes for the most creative and tacky sweater designs. Trust me, it’ll be a hoot!

 8.  A Festive Film Festival

This theme is perfect for movie buffs or anyone who loves spending time curled up on the couch with a good film.

Set up a projector in your living room and choose as many movies you like. Then, invite your friends over for an evening of films, popcorn, and cozy blankets. Just be sure to have plenty of tissues on hand – meltdown moments are practically guaranteed with this one!

There is a lot to be excited about.
