How to Host a Christmas Party

Imagine...the guests are gathered in the living room, complimenting your fantastic taste in festive décor, sipping mulled wine and looking forward to a delicious meal sat at the table adorned in sparkling Christmas tableware

We’re here to provide endless Christmas inspiration and offer a guide on how to throw a Christmas party that’ll go down in history with your guests.

Step 1: Decorate your space

It might be tricky knowing when to decorate for Christmas but it’s never too early!

Create the perfect Christmas scene in your home with our huge range of Christmas decorations. From wreaths to bunting and lights to balloons. We have something to suit every taste and set the joyful festive atmosphere in your home this year.

Top tip: Foliage is a great way to instantly transform your space into the home of festive abundance. Hang a wreath on your front door to immediately set the tone of Christmas spirit as guests enter.


Step 2: Dress your table 

The Christmas table is where guests gather to eat, drink and be merry! So, it’s important to make sure the tableware reflects that festive spirit. Dine in luxury with show-stopping festive centrepieces, candles, plates, lighting and more. Don’t forget placeholders and crackers for the finishing touches!

Top tip: Having a centrepiece will tie your entire festive tableware together. A foliage or candle centrepiece is a great finishing touch.

Step 3: Look the part

Get Christmas photo-ready with our array of fun novelty dress up! Whether you want silly headbands or subtle touches with festive earrings, we have everything for any taste. It’s time to shake your tinsel on the dance floor!

Top tip: For a great Christmas photo, it’s best if everyone sticks to a similar colour palette. So, for festive dress up, make sure you pick a theme first!

Step 4: Plan Christmas fun

Entertain guests with fun Christmas games and activities. Whether it’s a puzzle for the kids or a game of charades for everyone, make sure your Christmas party has festive activities planned. Drinking mulled wine and dancing to your favourite albums counts as a Christmas activity too! 

Top tip: Playing games is a great way to get everyone involved and out of their shell at parties.
