Who does not love a good party? And if it’s Christmas, that too in Sydney which is the only place where you get to celebrate Christmas in the summer. No wonder Sydney is bubbling with tourists at that time.
With Christmas around the corner, you may be puzzled over how to throw a memorable party for your guests? Everything you can think of seems so very worn-out and cliched. That’s why we have come up with seven unique ideas for your guests and their kids entertainment. Here you go-
Decorate your house with candles: –
If you are throwing a Christmas party at night, decorating with candles might be the best idea. It’s simple, budget-friendly, but elegant and charming. Furthermore, it gives a gorgeous and plush look to your walls.
Want to get creative while decking with candles? Buy glass jar candles from the local store and decorate them with burlap Christmas ribbons. Place them on the corner- tables beside the photo frames. The aroma will permeate your whole house and set the mood for celebration.
Christmas games: –
Games are the best ice-breakers for guests, not just for kids but also for adults, because festive spirit allows us to cherish the child in us. Silly as it may sound, ‘Who Am I’ is quite popular among adults. You can also have a cookie-recipe taste-off or wreath-making games. For the little ones in the house, why not host a scavenger hunt? A good way for your kids to mingle with and make new friends!
Go gaga with Christmas songs: –
Yes, a Christmas carol is a passé. We get it. But Christmas music is not only limited to carols, right? Play your favorite vinyl CD or pick a retro playlist from Spotify; because no one likes a dull and drab Christmas party. Or even better, rent a karaoke set up and bring back the 90s vibes with your favorite teenage albums. Oh, yes! Keep an extra mic in case of any surprise duets.
Movie marathon: –
Invite your friends to binge-watch the classic Christmas movies. From Capra’s It’s a Wonderful Life to Home Alone, When Harry Met Sally, or even Die Hard- there is no dearth of Christmas movies. Keeping care of kids entertainment is also essential, for which you can even hold a Christmas movie trivia quiz contest for your guest’s children.
Throw a BBQ party: –
Most Aussies like to spend their summer days around barbeque hangouts. If you are throwing a Christmas party at your home, why not cook delicious and savory barbeques for your guests? Surprise them with your culinary skills.
You can take a short lesson from professional chefs and learn how to smoke, marinate and flavor it like a pro. Sydney is also famous for exquisite dine-outs and roof-top restaurants, which offer a stunning view of the cityscape in addition to delectable dishes.
Cook exotic dishes: –
Christmas is a festival of rejoicing and embracing. Want to try something new this time? Why not celebrate it like the Italians with a sea-food-centered meal. It is popularly known as Feast of the Seven Fishes. Or like the Danes cook a rice pudding- rise made, they call it. But, don’t fret if the name does not roll off your tongue easily; it is an extremely easy but delectable dish to make.
If you want to go further down this road, you will be astonished to find the myriad number of ways people celebrate Christmas around the world. Surprise your guests with an exotic dish from another country. If you don’t want to go for the hassle, popular restaurants in Sydney are always ready to take your orders.
Beach party: –
As we said before, Sydney is a unique place- the only place where you can hold a Christmas party and a summer party together. So, why not make your Christmas party a beach party. New South Wales boasts of the most picturesque beaches in the world. Basking in the mid sun while tucking into barbecues with a sprawling view of the sea before you is undoubtedly a dream Christmas for anyone in the world.
To add a dose of entertainment to the party, you can also plan a hula hoop competition.
Holding an epic Christmas party is easy if you start planning. Make a list of items you need. Send invitation cards well ahead, so it does not clash with their other programs. We hope that some of these ideas must have convinced you that you can host an epic party without any hassle. Merry Christmas!
