No matter the theme or the menu, it’s always nice to have some helpful tips on hand for  planning a Christmas party to make sure you’ve thought of everything. Follow these pointers—and a few from dinner party expert Marcie Pantzer—and you’ll be feeling calm, cool, and cheery when the guests begin to arrive for your amazing meal.


Step 1: Decide on the style of your Christmas dinner

The style of your Christmas dinner can make a significant difference in the amount of planning and preparation you’ll need to do. 

  • Potluck: An all-out potluck can take most of the cooking off your plate—but you will need to coordinate who’s bringing what to ensure you don’t end up with 10 of the same dish.
  • Traditional: Traditional Christmas foods can include lots of options beyond the usual ham and mashed potatoes, depending on the style of cuisine you’d like to incorporate. 
  • Multicultural: Consider combining dishes from your own family’s traditions, your favorite restaurants or chefs, and traditional Christmas fare from around the world.
  • Casual: If your ideal Christmas party involves heavy apps and watching your favorite holiday movies, your Christmas dinner may not need all of the fixings.


Step 2: Set your cooking schedule

If you’re planning to do all the meal preparation yourself, constructing the menu in advance can help you stay organized. 

  • Plan recipes: Carefully read over each recipe to find steps that can be done ahead of time. 
  • Batch prep work: For example, chop all your veggies at once, then split them up into baggies for each recipe and store them in the fridge until it’s time to cook.
  • Freeze foods: Any foods that freeze well should be made several days to a week in advance. Baked cookies and cookie dough both freeze very well and can be made days before the party. Even cake layers can be baked in advance, then thawed and decorated the day of.
  • Consider dietary restrictions: You may want to offer a plant-based main course for vegetarian guests, or gluten-free options for those who can’t eat wheat. (Find out what restrictions you should keep in mind by requesting guests to share these in their RSVP or on your holiday party invitation’s Comment Wall.)


Step 3: Plan and send invitations early

Ms. Pantzer takes the guests into account before anything else. “You have to have the people there that you want to celebrate the holidays with—people that you love, your dear friends, family,” she says.

To ensure they can all make it, send your invitations at least four weeks in advance. With so many events happening at this time of year, it’s helpful to get your party on the books as early as possible. 

Paperless Post has hundreds of beautiful Christmas party invitations, so choose something that fits the tone and style of your Christmas party theme. Online invitations are the easiest method for tracking opens and replies, RSVPs, and messaging your guests all in one place. Add a Details Block to include all the delicious tidbits about your holiday menu, and use Guest Questions and Surveys to ask guests about dietary restrictions and other logistics.

Some of our favorite ways to tell guests about a dinner party include:

  • Text message invitations: Sending invitations by text—an option with all Paperless Post invitations—is a simple way to quickly get the word out to guests who always have their phone close by. It also makes replying fast and easy, so you’re likely to get RSVPs sooner. 
  • Share a link to your invitation: Is Whatsapp or Messenger your favorite method of communication? Try a shareable link invitation. Drop it casually into a group chat or share anywhere and everywhere for your potential guests to see.
  • Animated Flyers: Throwing a more casual dinner? Try a cheery holiday-themed animated Flyer. You can even upload your own favorite gif for a personal touch. 


Step 4: Prepare your Christmas party schedule 

Like planning an agenda for a meeting, a dinner party timeline can help you coordinate what happens when, allowing you to anticipate guests’ needs and keep from scrambling around on the day of. Here’s an example of what your Christmas dinner party timeline might look like:

  • 6:00 pm: Guests arrive and remove their coats
  • 6:30 pm: Serve appetizers and cocktails
  • 7:00 pm: Guests sit down at the table; serve more drinks
  • 7:15 pm: Serve first course
  • 7:30 pm: Serve second course
  • 8:00 pm: Clear plates and offer coffee, tea, or more drinks
  • 8:15 pm: Serve dessert


Step 5: Enlist help from family or from other guests

Delegating tasks to your kids or your best friend doesn’t just get chores off your plate—it’s also an opportunity to make sure everyone feels like part of the fun. 

  • Even if you aren’t doing a potluck, ask your bestie to contribute a favorite recipe or festive cocktail to the table to get one more dish out of your kitchen.
  • If you’ve got a baker in your friend circle, ask them to handle dessert so you can focus on the main course.
  • See if loved ones can arrive early to help you set up, or stay late to clean the party area—and wash a dish or two.
  • Let the robots do the work! Enlist Instant Pots, slow cookers, and other automated appliances in your kitchen to cook while you focus on more detailed prep work.
  • Kids especially love to contribute in ways that put their special skills and interests to use. If your kiddo is artistic, let them help with decorations.


Step 6: Clean early to lighten the load

Get a handle on the cleaning with these quick tips. 

  • Before-party cleaning: Rather than one marathon cleaning session that leaves you frazzled by the time the doorbell rings, clean the house a little at a time in the days leading up to your party. 
  • Make a cleaning schedule: Plan the cleaning list in order of how fast grime accumulates. Dusting can be done a week ahead, the floor mopped a day or two before, the bathroom cleaned in the morning, and so on.
  • Prioritize dishes: If you really want to use vintage china or crystal that must be hand-washed, opt for dishwasher-safe silverware or disposable table décor from Paperless Post Party Shop.


Step 7: Set the scene the day before

Use the day and night before the festivities to do as much as possible so you can ease into the celebration without hectic day-of tasks. 

You can do the following ahead of time:

  • Tidy and decorate
  • Lay out flatware/glassware
  • Set up tables and chairs
  • Food prep—this can include pre-chopping vegetables for a roast or presetting trays of snacks that will keep in the fridge
  • Test your sound system
  • Set up games, activities, or other supplies for your party’s events


Step 8: Make a seating chart and set out place cards for guests

While seating charts are optional at smaller, more intimate dinner parties, there are plenty of reasons you might want to include them.

  • You can seat people next to others you want them to meet: Know your friend and neighbor have something in common and may hit it off? This small Christmas dinner idea is the perfect way to introduce them.  
  • It’s a thoughtful way to welcome your guests: Sitting down to a seat with your name on it can show just how much the hosts anticipated and prepared for your arrival.
  • It can avoid the shuffle of finding seating before the meal: Having pre-set seating can make a smoother transition to dinner and prevent any questions of who should sit where.


Step 9: Enjoy the festivities!

Set the scene with just the right finishing touches. “It’s important to set the stage from the front door,” says Ms. Pantzer. “Make sure you’re lighting a beautiful candle. I’m a huge fan of dimming lights. Everyone looks prettier when it’s a little bit darker.”

With your last boxes checked, your goodies on display, and the mistletoe hung strategically, it’s time to sip your favorite winter beverage and wait for the guests to arrive!
