Holiday and Christmas Party Theme Ideas

Hosting a holiday party is a great way to get in the spirit of the season, but if you're fresh out of holiday party invitation themes it can be a little stressful. Since your holiday or Christmas party invitation theme should match the party theme, we are full of fresh ideas you can make your own. You can host a classic and traditional Christmas party or you can surprise your guests with a new theme that hasn’t been experienced before. A stylish and fun holiday party invitation can serve as a source of inspiration for your Christmas activities and set the tone for guests before they partake in the holiday festivities!

  1. Gingerbread House Party

    Everyone loves a gingerbread house, so why not host a gingerbread house building party? Get your guests to bring supplies and you can provide the space and the icing! Your invitations can hint at the fun to come by featuring a gingerbread house or candy-shaped design. A gingerbread house inspired invitation should be decorative, cheerful, and colorful.

  2. Caroling Party

    Mix up a huge pot of hot cocoa and invite your friends to go caroling with you. This old-fashioned fun can make for a night of hilarity, and your neighbors are sure to be impressed. Invitations can feature sheet music, a packet of hot cocoa mix, or a sled-shaped invitation.

  3. Santa Costume Party

    Invite all your guests to dress up like Santa and give prizes to the best, most hilarious and most unlike Santa-style costumes. You should encourage guests to be as creative as possible and add a new twist to the traditional Santa costume. Your invitations should be Santa-themed with a Santa head, Santa's gift bag or a sleigh full of gifts.

  4. Classic Holiday Party

    If you are hosting a classic holiday party, your invitation options are endless. A classic holiday party invitation should remind guests of all the wonderful things that the Christmas season has to offer. You can have a humorous invitation such as a dancing elf, or you can opt for classic Christmas wreath, tree, gift box, snowflake, or mistletoe themes

  5. Cookie Exchange Theme

    A Cookie Exchange is the perfect theme for your party if your family loves to bake! Baking cookies during the holiday season is a common tradition and you can transform this popular holiday activity into a gifting party. Family and friends can bring their own cookies and everyone can fill up decorative holiday tins with their favorite treats. Your cookie exchange holiday party invitation should be decorative with stripes, patterns, baking symbols, or cookie graphics. You can even choose an invitation that has a traditional sugar cookie recipe on the front to inspire your guests in advance!

  6. Deer-Themed Winter Party

    A deer-themed holiday party is a contemporary holiday theme that offers a new take on winter-styled parties! You can choose an invitation that has beautiful deer antlers on the front to match all of the creative antler dècor that can be used at your party.

  7. Christmas Sweater Party

    A Christmas sweater party is a fun and interactive theme for your holiday party! Family and friends can wear their favorite Christmas sweaters or you can opt to go with an "Ugly Christmas Sweater" party. You can choose a colorful invitation that has a Christmas sweater on the front along with fun Christmas symbols and ornaments.

  8. Formal Holiday Party

    If you are hosting a formal holiday party, your invitations can feature a beautiful winter scene including ice skating or a family cutting down its Christmas tree. You can also have your own unique snowflakes printed on your invites.

Perhaps the most important thing to remember about holiday invitation themes is that they should fit your personal style above all else. Don't settle for something that's less than ideal. Personalize your perfect themed invitation for an event that's flawlessly festive instead!
