Unconventional Christmas Party Ideas
Want to break out of the mould with your Christmas party this year? It may be fun to come up with quirky, creative party ideas, and you’ll find that a unique Christmas party can be a whole lot more enjoyable than the classic office party you’ve held every year.
Here are a few to consider:
Toy Drive — Have each of your guests bring a few toys to the Christmas party, and have a wrapping station where guests can wrap the presents. Once the party is over, have a few of the organizers take the gifts to a local shelter or orphanage, and take pictures so each of your guests can see who their toys were given to.
Auction — Buy a few things that people would really enjoy, such as special gift baskets, tickets to sporting events, etc. Have each of the guests bid on the items, and the highest bidder wins the gift. However, the money you raised in the auction will go towards a charity of the guests’ choice.
Nightmare Before Christmas Theme —Instead of the classic Christmas theme, go gothic for the holidays. The Tim Burton classic makes for a great Christmas party theme, which feels just a bit like Halloween as well. Have spooky snacks, creepy decorations, and Halloween-style games for this quirky theme.
Willie Wonka Theme — Get creative with the chocolate this year, and let the guests choose their “death by chocolate”. Serve savory foods made with chocolate (curry, Mexican mole, etc.), and have all the chocolate samplers they could ask for. Have a chocolate fountain, and serve chocolate fondue. Don’t forget the chocolate-stuffed gift bags!
International Christmas — Just because we live in Australia, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy Christmas around the world. Serve the classic foods and beverages from as many countries as you can, and set up areas for each country’s specialties.
Get Out — Instead of being cooped up inside a building, why not look for Christmas party venues outdoors? You’ll find that it’s one of the hottest times of the year, so it’s a perfect time to hit the beach, the rivers, or the forests for some outdoor fun!
Find Unique Entertainment — Find a unique way to entertain your guests. Set up a murder mystery, have a caricaturist drawing hilarious pictures, make a photo booth available, hire a few dealers for a casino night, or get some stand-up comedians to perform their routines. The more creative, the better!
