There’s a reason why food is essential to almost all of the major holidays—we all love food, especially food that accentuates the celebration or time of the year. When planning your Christmas event, keep this in mind, because just as spectacular food can turn an okay event into an extraordinary event, bad food can ruin an event regardless of all of the other successes.
The following are some great food ideas to take your party to the next level.
- Peppermint Brownies – Nothing gets the holiday spirit going like rich brownie layers sandwiching cool and creamy mint cheesecake and topped with mousse and pieces of peppermint. Schedule to have this holiday treat at your event.
- DIY Hot Chocolate Bar – This is a fun, versatile, and interactive holiday option that is sure to wow your guests. Hot chocolate bars—fully loaded with a range of toppings like chocolate chips, marshmallows, candy canes, crushed Oreos, and other delectable treats—are perfect for company holiday parties or intimate family gatherings.
- Gingerbread Decorating Station – There is perhaps nothing more emblematic of Christmas than making gingerbread men. Bring this tradition to your party. Setting up a station stocked with gingerbread men, icing, sprinkles, candies, and other sweets at your event will have your guests, regardless of their age, feeling like kids on Christmas Eve.

Embrace the Giving
The holiday season often brings out the best in people. Oftentimes, it seems to be the time of the year when people are most inclined to acknowledge all of their blessings and give a little.Take advantage of this collective generosity and provide your guests with an opportunity to donate to a worthy cause. This might include setting out a collection box for a good local organization, hosting a silent auction, or devoting a portion of the day to volunteer together in your community. To get the most out of this, brainstorm some of the causes that you and your guests might have a connection to.
While it’s impossible to absolutely ensure that your event is a success, there are a number of things you can do to improve the likelihood that your Christmas party is fun, entertaining, and enjoyable. Keep this list in mind when planning your holiday party. With that said, also remember to not overthink it. You don’t have to throw an elaborate party to have a good time. By simply adding some personal touches, nice gestures, delicious food, and creative ideas you can create a fun and festive atmosphere.
