Each guest brings a batch of their favorite cookie recipe to share at the party and an extra batch to divide up for each guest to take home. Offer light refreshments (don't forget the milk!) for guests to sip on as they indulge in all of the different cookie flavors. Set up a packaging station with holiday tins or cookie boxes for guests to fill with their favorite cookies!
Set out a small tree and ask your guests to bring an ornament to add to the tree. Add to the festivities by having everyone explain why they chose that ornament. You can even make a contest out of it by offering a prize to the guest with the most thoughtful or funny ornament story.
Invite your friends over for hot cocoa and a series of holiday movies while you wrap all of your holiday presents together. It is a great way to share creative gift wrapping tips with each other!
This is a great party idea for the kids. Make it a stress-free event by using pre-made gingerbread houses. Set out the gingerbread houses and bowls filled with a variety of decorations like gum drops, snow caps, and peppermints. Balance out all of the candy with nutritious nibbles like Grinch Fruit Kabobs (click here for the recipe!).
These parties can be a lot of fun. Guests come donning the most tacky holiday sweater that they can find. Encourage everyone to get into the spirit by holding a contest for the ugliest sweater with enticing prizes- a bottle of Beaujolais should do the trick!
