Christmas Party Ideas for a Festive Family Gathering | #Blogmas Day 12

Christmas is almost around the corner, and if you’re worried about organizing a festive family gathering – welcome to the club, you’re in the right place! Here are four amazing Christmas party ideas you should take into consideration this year, so check them out and nail this task like a real pro!

Go for a festive Christmas candy making…

We can all agree that there’s no Christmas without delicious candies, which is exactly why you should organize a fabulous Christmas candy making event. We can freely say that nothing says holidays like a batch of truffles, fudge, or toffee (or all of them), and the first thing to do is to invite your family members and their kids so that everyone can feel the Christmas spirit in the air. As for your candy selection, there are a lot of easy-to-make recipes that are definitely worth trying, such as gingerbread fudge, peanut butter pinwheel candy, or candy cane hearts.  These are extremely simple yet so yummy at the same time, and we’re sure that you won’t make a mistake whichever recipe you go for!

Or even a holiday bake-off

On the other hand, if you’re up for a full-on holiday bake-off, you should opt for it this Christmas! This is a fantastic idea, especially on the dreadful winter day, so get ready for a magnificent fusion of festive scents and irresistible tastes! If you want to make your ultimate bake-off even more exciting, you should plan it to the tiniest detail and divide all your guests into separate groups. The groups will then compete against each other, preparing the delicious meals everyone will be glad to eat on a Christmas day. Of course, you don’t want to make it too complicated, so stick to simple Christmas lunch recipes and your bake-off won’t end up like a complete disaster. As for the dessert, you can always ask your guest to bring their favorite one, so that everyone can enjoy your favorite dessert after lunch.

Organize an awesome pampering party for your ladies

Even though the holiday season is undoubtedly the most wonderful time of the year, the truth is that it can also bring a lot of stress and anxiety at the same time. Everyone is rushing to find perfect Christmas gifts for their loved ones and getting their homes ready for upcoming family gatherings, which often leave no time for people to relax a little bit. If that’s how you feel right now, too, you should certainly take an awesome pampering party into consideration this year! Just take a break from the holiday hustle and invite your mom, aunts, and daughters to an afternoon of pampering. Start with getting your nails done, and then do each other’s hair and makeup. And don’t worry about the cooking – the male part of the family can do it (which is highly unlikely), or you can simply opt for catering services provided by companies like Fast and Fresh Catering. From fresh salads and pasta to canapé and finger food catering – possibilities are truly infinite, and we’re sure that you won’t regret it if you go for this option!

Holiday game night: oldie but goodie

Last but certainly not least, a holiday game night is an unavoidable part of celebrating Christmas for many families, and this is actually a part of the tradition that will never go out of style. If that’s your cup of tea, you should definitely kick off the holiday season with some friendly competition. You should come up with a selection of classic games, but with a little twist – Christmas Bingo, for example. Of course, you can change it up a little bit, and using popcorn instead of ordinary place-markers is a fantastic way to spice it up and enjoy the Christmas spirit at its finest. On the other hand, if such a game isn’t really your thing, you can go for a Christmas movie trivia quiz. Trust us when we say that everyone will love this one!

As you can see, there are a lot of fabulous ways to organize a festive family gathering everyone will enjoy. All you have to do is to stick to our tips and guidelines and you’ll make that happen, without a shadow of a doubt!
