It’s currently T minus 5 weeks until Christmas Day – wow where did this year go!

However, don’t panic! It’s not too late to plan the perfect Christmas Party, and with our top 5 tips your party will be the most organised in the street!


What’s a party without attendees, am I right? Get your invites out ASAP! We recommend using websites such as Canva. Using already built in templates will have your design looking creative and professional – and like you haven’t just put it together in 30 mins! You can also send your invites via email so can have them sent out in less than 2 hours.

Set your budget

It’s very easy to go over budget for your Christmas party. Although it is the season of giving, it’s super important to stick to budget so you have some money to spend on other things – such as pressies for the family!

Keep it simple

Simplicity is key! Because you have left it quite last minute (sorry but it’s true) keeping things simple will help your party to be less complicated and easy going! Think of your 4 main priorities and execute them well – venue, invites, food and drinks!


What do you think when I say Christmas?? Christmas lights and decorations, Santa Claus, a Christmas tree and FOOD. Everyone loves Christmas food! Think: mini pavlovas, mini Christmas puddings, prawns, ham and of course, champagne!

Theming & Entertainment options

Okay so FINALLY are decorations. Christmas theming is quite easy considering almost every shop carries Christmas supplies! We recommend Kmart, Target and Ikea to grab a bargain. Another tip is to grab a few things that will be able to be used for years to come!

They are our top 5 tips to organising your Christmas party in 5 weeks or less!

Happy holidays from the team at Firefly Events and good luck planning your Christmas party!
