Christmas Party Ideas To Steal

Awesome Christmas Party Ideas

Party season has officially begun...

Because we love any excuse for a party, we’ve put together three great Christmas party ideas that will instantly impress. Whether you’re hosting Christmas cocktails or a full-on house party, these festive party ideas will help you celebrate in style. First of all, as with any party, it’s important to ensure you have enough booze to see you through the night. From there, the decoration is essential to create the perfect party atmosphere. At Christmas, there’s no such thing as too much glitz and glamour! Also, you really can’t beat a maximalist approach to styling when it comes to a party... Therefore, our Christmas party suggestions focus on those decadent finishing touches that will make your home stand out this party season!

From festive fireplaces to the bar, you can create a sensational statement by focusing on a couple of key areas. While a house party sees your guests wandering the living spaces of your home, every guest arrives in the hallway. As a result, we love the idea of creating a fabulous feature for your stairs. This promises to impress everyone that steps foot in your home and makes a great focal point for the festivities. Also, as everyone’s first port of call at a Christmas party, you can’t neglect the bar! So fill it with your favourite tipples and wine glasses. Once this is organised, it’s time to create the atmosphere elsewhere. As with your staircase, a festive fireplace design helps make your Christmas party styling ideas to the next level. So, throw on a killer party outfit and get ready to dance until dawn…

Create A Seasonal Staircase

As the first thing your guests will see as they walk through the door, set the tone with your staircase! Great Christmas party ideas include everything from confetti to gorgeous garlands. However, one of our favourite ideas has to be creating a sensational, seasonal staircase! Furthermore, adding a few festive touches to your staircase promises to transform your home with the magic of the season.

First of all, an essential component of any seasonal staircase is foliage. While foraging outside for foliage never fails to impress, faux options are also great and can be reused again. Because foliage stands out on its own, sometimes all you need is a few brilliant baubles to complete your look. Also, don’t be afraid to layer up festive fir tree garlands for a fabulous staircase feature!

When it comes to Christmas, bigger is better and the presence of pom poms is a festive favourite at RSG! Available in a range of colours, hang your honeycombs from the stairs at different heights for a serious style statement. As an added bonus, these decorations also look amazing displayed elsewhere around the house, from the living room to the bedroom!

Christmas Party Cocktails

No chic Christmas party is complete without a bar. Therefore, whether you’re setting up a cocktail corner or boozy drinks trolley, your home bar deserves attention. Probably the most important part of any seasonal soiree, Christmas cocktails are essential to all great Christmas party ideas. So, stock up on bottles of bubbles and don’t forget to add drama with decorations. From fairy lights to paper decorations, stars and glitter straws, every great Christmas party deserves a little sparkle!

Above all, our Disco Ball Drinks Trolley comes into its own at Christmas. From festive tipples with friends to full-blown parties, Christmas is the time to be merry after all… Therefore, why not style your Christmas cocktail bar centre stage?! Layer the cocktail glasses, wine glasses & whiskey glasses and of course, all your favourite tipples! As an instant style statement, all you need next is a few decadent decorations. While glassware helps set the tone, don’t hold back on decorative details. Start by sprinkling confetti over your drink trolley and lighting a scented candle for atmosphere. Another essential for us is paper pinwheels and honeycombs for instant party vibes! Finally, when it comes to Christmas party suggestions, the details make all the difference. So, introduce a few glitter party straws to your bar setting for the final, festive flourish!

Festive Fireplace Party Ideas

If you’re lucky enough to have a beautiful fireplace then Christmas is the perfect time to play around with styling! First of all, there’s nothing quite like a fabulous fireplace display. As the centrepiece of your scheme at Christmas, decorating your mantelpiece adds cosy character and instant glamour. Maybe you’re looking to keep things simple with candles and layers of festive foliage? Or add bright pops of colour to create quirky Christmas party vibes? Either way decorating your fireplace is a great Christmas party idea that will impress your guests. While you can simply add a glitzy garland, we’re a fan of a more maximalist approach to Christmas…

Rather like our seasonal staircase Christmas party suggestion, foliage is key to your success with a festive fireplace. From vases filled with trailing ivy and seasonal foliage to gorgeous garlands or wreaths of holly, eucalyptus and winter berries. Therefore, we recommend using foliage as the base of your display. Above all, the idea is to create a unique and personal feature with wow factor. So, opt for decorations and details that you love and everything will come together perfectly!

A few of our favourite party ideas for a festive fireplace include beautiful paper stars and pinwheels. For the ultimate Christmas party scene, pair paper decorations with plenty of romantic candlelight! Alternatively, leave the mantelpiece clear and decorate a statement mirror above the fireplace with fairy lights and a gorgeous bauble garlands. Just make sure you leave a space for your Christmas stockings to hang!
