Christmas Open House: Who to Invite?

Hosting a Holiday Open House is a great way to be able to see all of your family and friends without your house getting too packed. Guests can pop in for an hour or two according to their schedules. Also, there is no need to host this type of holiday party on or just a few days before Christmas Day. Feel free to schedule your open house any time before or even after Christmas! With a lighter load on your cooking--and on your wallet--you will be able to kick back and relax with your guests, enjoying the season along with your excellent company.

The real question is, who should you invite to your open house? Do you need to be sparse with your guest list or do you want to invite more? The key thing to keep in mind is the casual come-and-go atmosphere of an open house party. Even so, many guests will arrive and stay for the duration of the party. Here are some important things to consider when compiling your guest list.

  • Christmas Eve and Christmas Day: Who do you generally see on these two days? If you tend to spend the big days with extended family, then perhaps it is a better idea to keep your guest list for your Christmas Open House to friends and/or co-workers.
  • House Size: Even with guests arrive and leaving at different times, your house will have a general maximum. Be sure that you don’t push the guest list beyond the realistic limit of your house. While a cozy and busy party can be extremely fun, a cramped and stuffy party is not. Try extending the capacity of your house by renting a few outdoor heaters (for milder climates) to place around your backyard.
  • Kid Friendly: Do you have kids? Do you need your party to accommodate children? Make sure to keep this in mind when counting heads and planning activities. Likewise, if you plan on having an adults only party, be sure to make those with children aware of the atmosphere of your event so they can plan ahead for childcare.
  • Budget: Knowing how much you want to spend on your party will help in knowing if those few "maybe" guests can be included or best be left off. Each guest will require extra food, drinks, and dishes, so it may be turn out to be easiest to include or eliminate guests based on a dollar figure alone.

Invitation Wording Ideas

On every invitation, there are the "must" bits of information that need to be included. These generally include the date and time, location, and RSVP information of your party. You will also want to mention what type of party you are throwing (i.e. Christmas Open House Party) and your names as the hosts! Beyond that, a cute introduction or greeting ties the invitation together for a snappy and festive effect. With so much to include on the invitation, you will want to keep your greeting to a few quick lines that set the mood without wasting all of your space. Here are some ideas to get you started!

Christmas Hors D'oeuvres Recipes

 
 

At an open house you rarely will see an entire meal served. Some do go crazy and offer an entire buffet style dinner, but most will serve heavy appetizers for guests to enjoy. A wide variety of appetizers is important to offer your guests enough to munch to keep their hands busy and their stomachs happy. Try one of these light appetizers to complement the more traditional heavy ones you probably already have in mind! They have festive colors and flavors to keep the holiday mood in the air.

Cinnamon Fruit Skewers

    Ingredients:
  • 1 package 6" skewers
  • 1/4 cup cinnamon oil
  • 2 cups diced fruit (apples, pears, or whatever you like!)
    Directions:
  1. Soak the skewers in water for 1 hour. Towel dry.
  2. Preheat broiler. Carefully skewer all of the fruit alternating types.
  3. Lay out the pre-soaked skewers on a broiler-safe pan. Brush each of the skewers with cinnamon oil.
  4. Broil fruit skewers for 30 seconds to 1 minute on each side.

Decorating Your Tree

 
 

Tree decoration styles are as varied as regular home decorations, with so many options in different colors, styles, and things to use. Even the Christmas tree technology changes over the years to produce more effective, more realistic, and more beautiful fake trees. Whether you use the same fake tree year after year, look for great deals on new trees, or enjoy the fresh pine scent of a real tree, you will always need decorations. Give your tree a face lift this year with some different and easy decorations that will last.

At one time, fake snow was a huge deal for Christmas trees. Flocked Christmas trees flew off the shelves, along with cans of artificial snow. However, the messy sprays lost their appeal after a few years, even if the desire to mimic the crystalline look didn't. Try decorating your tree with faux icicles instead! These crystal clear or sparkling additions reflect the lighting from your tree to give it an extra twinkling effect. They also work with any decoration colors, so can be used for years even if you switch out the colors of your lights and ornaments. What's best is they make a great mess-free substitution for tinsel too!

Add a little variety to your tree by buying some completely unique ornaments. Instead of offering ornaments in bulk boxes, stores have begun carrying individuals so you can mix and match whatever style you like. Add some extra variety to your look by picking up a few singles with completely unique shapes or designs and disperse them through your regular decorations. You'll be surprised how different your tree will look! Your old ornaments will look like accents instead of the main decorations, and your entire tree will shine with the variation.

Embrace a little bit of glitter. Give your old decorations a makeover with some glitter pens or glue and glitter vials. You can add different colors, create whatever decorations you like, and even get your kids involved in the fun. Your tree with shine a little brighter and be more colorful than the previous years without buying all new decorations! Go a step further and try adding ribbons, bows, gems, and other embellishments to your designs with a little all-purpose tacky glue.

Holiday Pet Ideas

For most pet owners, pets are as much a part of our families as any other member. People will include the family dog in family photos, sign their pets names on greeting cards, and buy their pets gifts for holidays. Why not find other ways to include pets into your holiday celebration? We couldn't agree more! We asked some of our family, friends, and shoppers how they incorporate pets into their yearly Holiday Celebration for some funky ideas to share.

Donna says:
"Our dog loves to be in the middle of the gifts when passing them out. He used to trip around the tree us and poke his nose in everything he could! One year, we found a Santa hat for him and put his bed in the middle of the room in place of our coffee table in front of the tree. He must have thought he was Santa and ever since (with much encouragement from our kids) has played his role and laid down in the very center to watch us scramble around him."
Maria says:
"My kittens are like my children! Every year I send out Christmas photo cards of them and include some silly tag line like 'Meowy Christmas!' It gives me a laugh, so until I have kids of my own I’ll keep doing it."
Ralph says:
"I'm not big on dogs and cats, but I do have a rather large fish tank. I decorate it with Christmas twinkle lights and some garland. I also have this incredible aquatic Santa sleigh and reindeer that I found online, that I add to bottom instead of my normal decorations for the month of December."
