How To Host A Christmas Party

1. Make your list and check it twice! Figure out exactly who you will invite. Is it adults only? Are kids welcome? Write down every single name you decide to invite, including children. After this, it's time to order your invitations! Look up some #inviteinspo like ours below... invitations set the tone and the party really starts the moment your guests receive their invites!

2. Plan your menu! Are you a master chef or do you need to book a caterer? If you need a hand, call us for recommendations on booking Fresno's best caterers! Also, decide how you want to dine. Do you want a sit-down dinner or will you go cocktail party style? Let's chat...we can help you make that decision as well.

4. Game on! Here's our top 4 Christmas games to play with friends and family.

  • Everybody loves White Elephant. Click here for the Official White Elephant Gift Exchange rules
  • Unwrap The Gift. You'll need a small simple gift, roll of wrapping paper, scissors, tape, pair of oven mitts, and timer. Wrap the gift. Then wrap it again, over, and over, and over... Gather the players in a circle. Wearing the mitts, each person has 30 seconds to try to tear through the wrapping paper. If they can't get it within the time limit, they pass it on to the next person. The gift slowly gets unwrapped person by person. The last person who is able to unwrap the gift keeps it. But by then, maybe all they'll want is a drink. Bottoms up!
  • Charades/Heads Up. You can play the classic charades game with physical cards or just download the 'Heads Up' app on your phone and you are set to start guessing!
  • Stumbling Blocks is a Jenga style drinking game! It's available to purchase in store at RSVP Style in Fresno, CA.
