Holidays are always interesting not solely for their meaning and origin but also for the opportunity to throw a party. Christmas Eve is proper time to have fun with friends but it is hard to organize cool party because cool party has to have original script and interesting games. Those games should be funny, interesting, exciting and of course not boring.

There are different ways to throw the party. That depends for whom you want to organize that. Here are some party and game ideas that will help you to throw the best party ever. Just read and remember.

Part 1. Top Party Themes for Christmas

1. Fairytale


Christmas is a magical holyday. Everything is beautiful, houses are full of nice flavors and Santa is coming at night. It's very funny to organize a party as a fairytale. You can choose a fairytale like "The snow queen", and you should dress like the heroes or you can mix several fairytales. You also can organize a journey through the tales. The fairytale-party will remind you about your childhood; you can have very interesting, funny and touchy time.

2. Hot Christmas

Hot Christmas

We always think about snow and cold when we talk about Christmas and that is normal because we celebrate Christmas in winter but there are some countries, where winter is not like in our country (cold and white). There are many countries where is hot in winters. So, it is very interesting to organize a Christmas party in summer clothes as a Beach party. We can organize a journey through the exotic countries. Just open a world map and choose any hot country. You also can create a beach in your house, play nice summer music and your Christmas party will be original, different and warm.

3. 20s


Just forget about everyday life and imagine how nice it was in 20s. When people were different, without boring technics. Remember how nice it was when we could be surprised. Christmas Eve can give you the opportunity to throw a party "20s style". Just imagine the music of 20s, dresses, all those interesting conversations about art. Only perfect mood and nostalgia without any technics like iPhone, cool cameras and Smart TV. The only thing that can be in that party is modest tape-recorders.

4. Impress the Host

Impress the Host

We all know that Christmas table is full of delicious yummy things and it is hard to accept that we see almost the same food in different houses. That's sad. This party is the most delicious one because all those people who are invited to the party have to bring with them really original food. It has to be very original and sometimes weird, something that we never see in Christmas table.

5. Vampire Party

Vampire Party

One of the most popular topics today are vampires. That's very weird because almost 100 years ago vampires were scaring monsters but now they are perfect creatures and they are not scaring at all. Of course, vampire parties are very popular and youngsters are very interested in parties like that. So, if you decide to organize a party in vampire style you can be sure that you will have many guests. You have to use only two colors – red and black. Food and beverage have to be in the same color. Of course, don’t forget about Christmas. You can use some vampire stuff to decorate your Christmas tree, can draw vampire teeth on balloons. You and your guests must be dressed properly, like vampires or Dracula, werewolves and other scaring characters from vampire movies.

6. New Year's Masquerade

New Year's Masquerade

For example, you need to decorate your house (or another place where you want to organize a party) very typically using fans and heavy velvet curtains like in theatres.

The culmination of your party can be exciting firework that can give you the energy of Christmas.

Soundtracks from the movies will help you to feel inside of that magical atmosphere of Christmas movies. Unusual script of your party and decorations will allow your guests to feel on the other side of the screen.
