How to Organize an Ornament Exchange Party


An ornament exchange party is a great way to get into the spirit of the holidays. You can get your co-workers, friends and family together to share in the spirit. This is a simple party to organize, and it can be affordable because your guests are bringing the gifts to exchange and you can serve as much or as little food as you would like. An ornament exchange party can be planned with little effort.

Things You'll Need

  • Invitations Food and beverage Ornaments
  • Decide on a guest list. It's best to invite a larger group, because not everyone will be able to attend. If you have a smaller group of friends, ask them to bring along a guest or two.

  • Write out your invitations. Include date, time and location for your party. On your invitations, state that guests should bring an ornament. Have them stay under a certain price, such as $10, and bring it wrapped in holiday paper.

  • Decide on food and beverages to serve at your party. If you are planning for a large group of people, have a lot of finger foods or even a small buffet that guests can help themselves to whenever. If you are having a smaller, more intimate party, you may choose to have a sit-down meal.

  • Collect RSVPs closer to the date to get an indication of how many people will be attending. Have enough chairs for everyone.

  • Enjoy your party. When people arrive, have them place their wrapped ornaments in a pile. Once everyone has arrived, you can start picking numbers. When a guest's number is up, she can pick a wrapped ornament and open it. You can have the option for people to trade later if they want to.

Tips & Warnings

  • The more people you invite, the better your ornament exchange party will be.
