Although the holidays are celebrations, sometimes, they can be stressful or boring if you’re going through the motions. However, one way to spice things up this season is to throw an alternative holiday party.
If you aren’t sure which ones to try out, don’t worry; we have you covered. Here are some alternative holiday party themes to consider.
Ugly Sweater Party
If you want to try out a hilarious holiday party theme, you should have an Ugly Sweater Party! Everyone has seen an ugly holiday-themed sweater on the racks at a store or the back of a loved one. Embracing the charm and humor in wearing ugly sweaters can help set the mood of good tidings and cheer.
The best part is that you can ask one of your relatives to see if they have an old one you can borrow. However, if you can’t find any in your grandma’s basement, you can always stop by your local secondhand store to see what they have to offer. At the end of the night, you can award the best sweater wearer with a prize to take home, such as a bottle of wine or a gift card.
World Holidays Party
Almost every religion, culture, or nation celebrates some holiday during the winter. If you want to host a holiday celebration that is inclusive to all, you can host a gathering that acknowledges many winter holidays worldwide.
From Christmas and Hanukkah to Ramadan, Bodi, and Kwanzaa, you can designate certain areas in your room for each holiday and have everyone enjoy the best that each has to offer. Also, you can bring everyone together by hosting a potluck where each friend brings cuisine from a specific culture. This will ensure that there will be food that suits everyone’s tastes, and it will give you a chance to try something new.
Murder Mystery Party
Murder Mystery Parties are fantastic for building teamwork among friends and family. If you host one this holiday season, it’ll also be a great way to ring in the new year as well. At the beginning of the party, someone will get “murdered,” and the rest of the party will need to figure out who the culprit is by asking questions to each of the characters that your friends and family will play.
At the end of the party, you’ll have to guess which person did it. If you want to make cleaning up easier for your holiday party, try using elegant disposable party supplies for some old-fashioned charm.
Overall, the holidays are a special time for all of us. And you can keep them interesting with changes to enjoy the celebrations even more. Now that you know some alternative holiday party themes to consider, you shouldn’t have trouble keeping things fresh and exciting!
