Holiday Party Planning Tips

Every great holiday party has a few key elements: fun activities, festive decorations, and an outfit that makes you feel your best. And with holiday party starters from AE, you can plan ahead for every get-together this season.

Whether it’s a Christmas or Hanukkah dinner with fam, a gift exchange with friends, or a blowout with your work besties, these games, décor, and accessories will help you throw the most amazing holiday party ever.

 

Tip #1: Plan Activities

What better way to get your guests on the fast track to becoming BFFs than party games? Set out some games and toys and watch as your party becomes the one everyone can’t stop talking about. And if you’re looking to mix up those low-key family nights during holiday break, keep a board game or puzzle handy, plus kitschy cookie cutters for all that baking!

Tip #2: Decorate Your Space

Liven up your space with decorations that set a merry and bright mood! Add a little holly job with an elf photo kit, twinkling string lights, and holiday-themed kitchenware that makes everything look and taste better.

Nothing livens up your party look like holiday-themed accessories. Whether you’re hitting up an ugly sweater contest or a chill get-together with friends, create a naughty AND nice look with finishing touches like Santa hats, tinsel earrings, and light-up candy cane glasses.
