Unique Party Ideas For The Holiday Season


The wintertime is the most magical time of the year. The snow, to most, is an unwelcome guest that routinely and annually wreaks havoc among the streets. The holidays themselves, however, are worth any trouble the snow or the cold weather might give us. Thanksgiving and Christmas are two of the most magical and important times of the year.

For Thanksgiving you get to indulge on a multitude of delicious food and then after you’re full you continue to eat an even more filling dessert. And for Christmas, you get to feast your eyes on some of the most glorious holiday light decorations that coat most houses in your neighborhood. You get to decorate your own house, both inside and out.

The holiday season is generally an all around great time and what better way to celebrate the jolly season than with a theme party! Check out these party ideas below and see which one best suits you.

Ugly Sweater Christmas Party

Everyone enjoys ugly Christmas sweaters, even the people who say they don’t enjoy them. An ugly sweater Christmas party is one of the more common themed parties you might see popping up around the holidays.

All the guests in attendance have no choice but to show up donning their best, or worst, ugly Christmas sweater and have an all around ugly time. A fun extra idea for your party is to offer a prize for the best dressed!


Thanksgiving is that one time of year that almost your entire family, close or not, come together for one thankful dinner together in celebration of unity and togetherness. Seeing your family is all well and good but do you ever just wish there was a version of Thanksgiving but instead includes you and all of your friends?

Friendsgiving is definitely for you. Plan a night together with all of your friends to eat a Thanksgiving dinner and put everyone in charge of their own dish. It’s a great way to have a memorable night with your closest friends as well as an enjoyable dinner that everyone helped create.

Holiday Movie Marathon Party

One of the best parts of Christmas is the holiday movies that come with it. The Santa Clause, The Polar Express, Miracle on 34th Street – There’s literally too many to name! I could start naming them right now and wouldn’t be finished until well into the New Year.

A great way to bring holiday movies into your party is to just throw a party specifically for watching holiday movies. Pick four, five, or even six movies that you and some friends can all enjoy back to back. You can rent a popcorn-popping machine so everyone can enjoy as much as they want! The Christmas movie combination ideas are endless!

Thanksgiving Cocktail Party

A unique idea for a Thanksgiving dinner is the Thanksgiving cocktail party. If you’ve never been to a cocktail party, it’s a party that leans more on the fancier side. Everyone dresses up and hors d’oeuvres are passed around for everyone to enjoy. Hors d’oeuvres are usually smaller portions of food that act almost like appetizers but end up being the only food available.

A Thanksgiving-themed cocktail party follows the same template. Everyone dresses fancy and hors d’oeuvres are passed around except they aren’t regular hors d’oeuvres. Instead, all of the food being passed around is smaller portions of Thanksgiving food. The cocktails being served can also be Thanksgiving-themed. They can be made to taste like pies, and other sweet after dinner treats.
