By Monica Langley

It’s that time of the year again! Awaited and the most sought-after! Christmas is the time for celebration and spreading goodness around. If you are planning on throwing a party for your beloved ones on Christmas and can make do with a tad bit of help, you are at the right place. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

Have a budget:

This is the most important step of planning any party or a big event. Zero down on a budget, and stick to it. It is good to be a little flexible with your expenses, but take care to not go overboard with it. Having a budget will give you a clear idea of what your party will look like. The venue, the food, the entertainment and the return gifts must all be planned with an expense ceiling.

Sending out invites:

The invite to the party is equivalent to the trailer of a movie. Make your invitation stands out so that all your friends and family choose to attend your party and not anyone else’s. If you are having a friendly party then a good idea is to include a shopping list on your Christmas invitation cards and have your friends hand them back to you. This way you can live up to your guests’ expectations and will not have to rack your own brains.

Food is the way to go:

Make sure the food that you include in your party is suited to the likes of your guests. Urge your guests to eat as much as they would like to, but don’t encourage wastage. Also, have arrangements made to send the leftovers from the party to places like orphanages for the less blessed ones. Go parallel to the idea of Christmas at your party, which is sharing and spreading love.

Get creative with entertainment:

Here is when you need to actually put in work to make your party come alive. Dancing and singing must also be in accordance with the likes and tastes of your guests. You can have a theme for your party which can be anything ranging from a certain way of dressing, styling, or any other current trend. You can experiment with something new too, for instance set up a bookshelf for your guests. The introverted and the book lovers would love to flock to that place and make friends with others of similar ideas.

Pay attention to transportation:

As per the venue of your transport have arrangements made to carry your guest to and fro to the place. If you are hosting the party at your own place or in a hotel in the middle of the city, you needn’t worry. But if it is, say a lawn party amidst nature or a barbeque party away from the hustle and bustle of the city, you should look into how your guests are going to make it to the place. You can have them stay the night or offer them a ride back home, if they are really in need for one.

Be true to your word:

This is the rather overlooked part of any party or organization. Be true to your promises. If you offer to have a certain dish made or you mention of having a certain way of recreation for your guests in your invite, you better live up to it. if you have told your guests to not worry about reaching or leaving the venue, it is then your responsibility that you cater to them. You never know who is relying on your promises, and you don’t want to let your guests down on Christmas.


There are many more aspects to a Christmas party than the ones mentioned above. In addition to these factors you need to pay detailed attention to your guests’ likes and dislikes, and make them feel at complete ease and comfort as long as you are the host. The key is to treat everyone with respect and kindness irrespective of their attitude towards you.

Remember that Christmas is the time for spreading love and joy around. So, let love and positivity take the front seat, while hatred and negative vibes ride at the back. Don’t hold grudges against those who couldn’t make it to your party. Follow these little rules, and you will never again have to worry about planning a Christmas party like a pro.
