Hilarious Holiday Pet Party – People can be so boring sometimes, so this year you should have a holiday party for all of the special pets in your life. This is especially fun since cats and dogs loved to be dressed up in funny and adorable outfits, right? Imagine having all of your friends, with their pets, all dressed up in Santa or Elf hats, or wearing other holiday costumes. You can even serve special holiday animal treats along with your human ones. For extra fun, set up a mini photo both area so your guests can have an awesome keepsake from the big event.
Re-gifting Swap Party – If you’re like most people, you probably have a few gifts that you received that you really do not care too much for. This is a perfect opportunity to have a gift swap party. Think of it as a way for your friends to get together after the holidays are over to swap out the rejects. Just have all of your guests bring a gift or two to add to the pile.
Reverse Christmas in July – Why not have Christmas in July as your holiday party theme? Just crank up the heat and have everyone come dressed for a beach party. Use the beach and tiki style to give your decorations that summer feel. Play some beach music, have beach balls, and serve margaritas on the side.
Dress as Your Favorite Drink – Instead of having an ugly sweater party, have a dress up party where everyone that comes wears something that represents their favorite drink. It can even be like a holiday costume contest. Here are a few ideas to give you some inspiration. A glass of champagne could be represented by a woman wearing a sparkling light colored dress with glitter makeup and other sparkling accessories. Someone wanting to represent a stiff whisky drink might dress up like an old-fashioned cowboy. A lady wanting to dress like red wine could wear some deep red lipstick and a red velvety dress.
Hopefully, this awesome list that we provided above will help you figure out some last minute holiday party theme ideas. Just remember to have fun with it and remember the real reason for the holiday season – celebrating friends and family. Happy Holidays and New Year from everyone at Catering by Design!
