Being the goddess of the house, it’s the mommas who are generally endowed with the deal of planning and preparing a Christmas party- and they are always looking for ideas on how to plan a memorable affair. Are you into thoughts for your upcoming Christmas party? Well, the post below offers a brief on top 5 Christmas party ideas the mums can try this year.

Ski Christmas party idea

This is for those ourdoorsy bold moms who leave no opportunity to plunge into adventures and when it’s Christmas, there’s no better adventure than a ski holiday. You will find ski resorts all around ready to welcome you with your entire family with their special Christmas arrangements. The lovely ski chalets would be decked up in Christmas decorations and lights and the guests would be treated with traditional Christmas meals and complimentary drinks throughout the Holy day. One of the main attractions of ski Christmas parties is surely the Christmas crackers show.

Cruise Christmas party

A great bunch of cruises deck up in the festive spirit for the special Christmas celebrations and if you are looking for something different this year, try out Christmas cruise party. You will be welcomed with merry Christmas decorations and Christmas carols playing on the deck. And yes, Christmas cruise parties are popular for their special Christmas menu that complement the ambience to the T. If you are planning an elaborate cruise party with your whole family and friends, you can book the entire vessel. Otherwise some cruises offer the facility of partying on a shared basis as well.

Cocktail potluck Christmas party

Yes, you will have the Christmas wine ready at your home for the celebrations but some more spirit will be cool to double up the fun even more. Don’t worry, you won’t have to bear all the spirits here- rather you can ask your friends and relatives to turn up with their own cocktail recipes and ingredients. You can utilize the time in between to try out some experimental flavors- and if they turn out successful, your guests would love your spirited surprise this Christmas.

Victorian themed Christmas party

If you have a flair for things vintage, you can try out the Victorian-themed Christmas party this year. The said era was known for everything lavish and hence be prepared to deck up your home in pearly beads, silk roses, ribbon and tassels. Cream, burgundy and pink are the colors of Victorian décor. Celebrate the Christmas dinner in retro style with roast beef or goose and don’t forget to insert a thimble/coin/ring in your rich plum pudding. Finally, no Victorian Christmas is complete without Christmas crackers.

In-house simple Christmas party

Yes, you have a whole of party ideas to try out but then in-house Christmas parties have their special charm. You might not have enough time to prepare and arrange for special theme parties when your kids are really small and in such situations a quaint in-house warm Christmas party would be just adorable.
