5 Out-of-The-Box Christmas Party Themes You Need To Get Down With Now

Christmas parties can be a blast. But they can also be tired, uninspired, and lacking in the creativity department. This holiday season, don’t let your annual Christmas party fall by the ingenuity wayside.

Host an unconventionally themed holiday party this year for a creative lift. We bet your guests will welcome the fun change and you’ll love the reinvigorated Christmas spirit!


1) Masquerade Ball

There really just aren’t enough masquerade balls in our opinion. Take advantage of this unique idea by inviting guests to get dressed up for a holiday masquerade party.

With a theme like this, “top notch” should be top of mind. That means, be sure to have champagne, extravagant decorations, and fancy hors d’oeuvres at the ready. A pro tip is to also have plenty of extra masks on hand as some guests may need to borrow one.


2) Beach Themed

If you’re sick and tired of the cold and snow, take matters into your hands by hosting a beach themed Christmas party.

Tell guests to arrive in their finest Hawaiian shirts and hula skirts. Serve up plenty of mai tais, pina coladas, and grilled hot dogs & hamburgers. Decorate your Christmas tree with starfishes and fill clear ornaments with sand and seashells for an added touch.


3) Winter White Party

Diddy isn’t the only one who likes a Hamptons inspired white themed party.

While this theme is typically reserved for summer time, we think it’s a perfect winter season pastime as well. Christmas is already wintery-white (what, with all that snow and all…) making this theme perfectly on-point!

Invite guests to dress all in white, serve white foods & drinks, and decorate with winter white in mind. Flocking (fake snow) will definitely come in handy for this theme.


4) Woodland Fairy Tale Christmas

Woodland is a hot winter trend this year so now is a fantastic opportunity to incorporate it into your holiday party.

Easily pull this theme off with decorative antlers, natural accessories (cranberries, branches, moss, etc.), and cozy elements like a roaring fire place.

Essentially, just imagine how Snow White and the 7 dwarves would be celebrating Christmas in their cozy cabin for inspiration.


5) James Bond Inspired

What does James Bond and Christmas have in common? They both look good in gold. Well… there may be more, but this common thread makes this theme a sure fire hit for your upcoming holiday party.

Pay homage to the opulent James Bond character by decking out your venue in gold decorations, shaken martinis, and dressed up foods & desserts. Invite guests to dress up as their favorite Bond character to really bring the theme home.
