*I was asked to share some holiday party ideas from Tiny Prints, who I am an affiliate for with my readers.*
Naughty or nice, everyone loves a good party — especially at Christmas. Let’s face Christmas is pretty much a week away now.
And so far we have…
Baked up some meringue cookies this past weekend.
Plus the girls have written and mailed their letters to Santa.
And even met the big man, himself, too!
And yet as much as we have gotten done, I bet many are as stressed as I am right about now fretting the last minute Christmas preparations, but still there is hopefully time for some fun with family and friends.
So as you work to gather RSVPs, cook appetizers and assemble that festive playlist, let somebody else handle the entertainment to give you one less thing to indeed have to concern yourself with.
See there’s nothing better than party games to keep a crowd mingling, but what games should you play?
For inspiration, use this free Christmas Party Games generator. It pulls fun holiday themed activities to keep guests preoccupied and enjoying the evening.
Created by Tiny Prints, you can filter game results based on the type of party you’re hosting and what type of guests will be in attendance. Filtering by “kid friendly” and “high activity” brings up creative games such as Christmas Charades and Santa Limbo so kids can expel their energy while the parents can relax.
Hosting a primarily adults only bash? No one is too old for games! Choosing “just adults” pulls game such as Funniest Christmas Present and Name that Carol, which work as great ice breakers for a diverse and large crowd.
So you have the entertainment down, but what if you’ve been procrastinating on everything else?
I am getting there myself slowly, but surely, but still have so much to do in only a week’s time! Yet, I have to hand it to Tiny Prints for giving me some hints on how to go about this a bit easier now.
Here are some extra tips from Tiny Prints on how to plan for your holiday party:
- It’s not too late to send out a printed invite! If you see your guests regularly, simply carry the stack with you to hand deliver.
- Don’t forget to include contact information on your invite (phone, email or both) so guests can easily RSVP and ask questions about the party.
- Consider the timing of the event based on who will be attending. An afternoon party is probably more appealing to families with kids, while a late dinner soirée brings more adults.
- Schedules too packed to throw a Christmas or New Year’s Eve party? While most are packing up the holiday decor in January and February, host a low key “holiday unwind” party to relax and prepare for the new year ahead.
