It’s the season for giving and sharing, and even if it’s still a few weeks away, there’s no doubt that the Christmas spirit is more felt now that the Coronavirus is a thing of the past! Now is the time that we can truly celebrate, and things are back to normal (or as normal as they could be after the nightmare that was last year and the year before). If you are planning a big Christmas celebration, you’re not alone. Since we can all gather again, this is the perfect time to go all-out on our Christmas parties and shindigs. But one way you can celebrate Christmas in style is to have a theme – and believe me, there are plenty of themes from which you can choose – each one better than the last! When you want to choose a theme for your Christmas party, here’s a list of top ideas for the best Christmas bash.
- A Hawaiian luau
The Hawaiian luau is an excellent idea for a theme (and it is on-trend and making waves in offices as we speak). And honestly, what’s not to like? You can celebrate all things tropical and bring a beach vibe to your Christmas affair! Don’t forget the fresh fruit and luau specialities like roasted pork, rice, pineapple, poke bowls, and Spam musubi (if you haven’t heard of this before, you’re missing out on a culinary delight). Of course, it’s also the perfect time to ask everyone to come in costume, and the grass skirts and Hawaiian shirts say it all.
- A Grinch Christmas
Another theme that’s on-trend nowadays is the Grinch Christmas, and your guests can come dressed in their favourite Whoville character and bring the evening to life. Prizes are in store for the best dressed, and by the end of the evening, your guests will know what Christmas is all about.
- A charcuterie and wine party
A theme that is gaining in popularity (especially as an office event) is a charcuterie and wine party, and the best part is that it’s easy to plan (and equally easy for the food to be served). For example, you could make a grazing table with crackers, cheeses, grapes and other fruits, meats, and more. You’ll have fun decorating your spread – or better yet, have a professional do it to give it more pizzazz, and you can make it more special when you plan it with help from party planners in Oxfordshire like Oasis Events.
- A Christmas cook-off
Here’s an idea that will save you tons of time – and will surely be a big hit with everyone! Ask everyone to contribute a holiday dish of their choice, potluck style. And then, before the evening ends, have everyone vote on their favourite dish, and the winner receives a special prize. You can even level it up by awarding prizes to the ‘most appealing,’ ‘the tastiest,’ ‘the best dessert,’ and so on.
- Pet Christmas party
There’s no reason our beloved pooches and cats can’t have a merry Christmas too, and why should they miss out on the fun and enjoyment? Of course, you can also celebrate with a pet Christmas party, along with treats, toys, and everything nice for your four-legged babies! But, of course, it would be amazing if your furry felines and canines could dress in costume, too – and make sure to hand out awards (and treats) for the best-dressed pets!
