PARTY FOOD IDEAS:
Bring Your Own Appetizer – Make It a BYOA Affair
Invite your friends by informing them that you have organized BYOA. In case your invitees are not aware of what to bring or don’t know how to cook, you can suggest them raw veggies and hummus, a fruit and nut platter, or a cheese and crackers plate. Along with that, you can even request them to take a container of mixed nuts.

Have a Midnight Supper
Invite all your family friends for a midnight supper. Get the dessert ready and don’t forget to bake large sized potatoes. This is the cheapest kind of meal but of course, there is no compromise with the quality.
FUN AND GAMES:
Ask Guests to Bring an Unusual Noisemaker
The best part of any festival is when you have to keep the memories in terms of time capsules and which can be done by filming videos.

That’s how you can make the time before your clock ticks twelve in midnight totally memorable.
“Hire” a Photographer
Photography has become an integral part of any festival. Similarly, for your Christmas party, there must be someone to capture the worthy moments. So hire a photographer or be one if you are passionate at this. Try to capture all the craziest moments and compel people to try different poses at different locations in the house. You may also try to organize a theme for the invitees like giving them unique attire to put on including props like scarves and shawls.
DECORATIONS AND ATMOSPHERE:
