There may be many different ways you can spend (the days leading up to) Christmas, but one of the most popular is to throw a party. It’s the perfect time to celebrate, after all, and if you are looking to enjoy the season with your friends, colleagues, and family (not necessarily in that order), then one of the best things you can do is to have a Christmas event. But if you want your Christmas party to be remembered long after it is finished, you’ve come to the right place – and your party will be oozing with elegance in no time. We’ve got lots of ideas for you, and all you have to do is choose – and be inspired. Here, then, are the most elegant ‘around the world’ themes for the best Christmas party of all.
Christmas celebrations around the globe
Of course, we have our little traditions here in the UK; if you incorporate those, it’s fine. But if you want to celebrate the season on a grander scale, why not celebrate it with the traditions of other countries? This will give your event a more cosmopolitan flair, and you can decorate your party with flags, Christmas décor, and ornaments from the other countries featured at your event.
This party theme is ideal for company affairs and those with global connections – and it’s perfect for anyone wanting to celebrate Christmas with a one-of-a-kind theme.
- A Scandinavian affair
If you want to incorporate a Scandinavian theme into your Christmas party, you can do so by decorating the place with gnomes scattered around – under the Christmas tree or on the shelves would be ideal. Ornaments made of straw are common in Scandinavian countries, and you can put them as centrepieces on the tables or place cards. Another great activity is to have an arts and crafts booth where your guests can make typical Scandinavian crafts.
- An evening in Paris
Of course, a European-inspired celebration wouldn’t be complete without a tribute to the City of Lights. Your guests will appreciate the elegance of a Christmas evening in Paris with lots of lights of different kinds, be it string lights, lanterns, candles, and more. Champagne or mulled wine would be perfect as an aperitif, and you can also place roasted chestnuts and gingerbread on the tables. If you can, get a big Eiffel Tower to stand on the floor, or place a smaller one on the dessert table. You can make the evening more festive with some game booths and stalls, and providers like We Are Tricycle would be happy to provide you with funfair stalls for hire.
- A gorgeous luau night
If you are looking for something out of the ordinary, you can’t go wrong with a gorgeous luau night – complete with all things tropical! It’s the perfect way to bring the sun, sand, and the tropics to your Christmas celebration, and you can set up a Hawaiian-themed Christmas anywhere you fancy – in the office, at your home, at a pub, or any other venue. For starters, you can spice up the drinks and beverages with a tropical punch or two, and on the menu, a hog roast would certainly be a welcome thing! Then, make the décor extra festive with palm and coconut trees, and ask your guests to come in their favourite Hawaiian shirts and grass skirts.
