It’s Christmas time and I am sure you must’ve invited friends and family over to your place for some really good, soulful food and just spend some time with them. But what if there was a way to elevate that experience by a whole lot? Well, then you’ve come to the right place looking for that.
There are tons of holiday themed party ideas out there but sometimes, it might be very expensive or just not something that you might be looking for. It could vary in a plethora of price ranges and it might not be feasible for everyone to be able to afford it. That’s where downloading and hosting your own Christmas holiday party would be a much better idea than actively looking for something that might be super expensive.
For starters, if you’re on a tight budget, you could start off by not adding too much decorations around your home. You might have already decorated your home for the holiday period anyways and it doesn’t make sense to add too much decorations on top of it. Besides, simplicity is key to decorating your home. Add too much and your place could become like a flea market, and no one wants that, for sure.
You could also skimp on invitations though, that is really up to you. It doesn’t necessarily make sense to make invitations but it’s really up to the host. If you do plan on calling a lot of people, you could make an evite since for starters, it is easy on the environment and you don’t need to spend so much money printing it and things like that. Just a simple evite would definitely help, if needed.
Next up is food. Obviously, if you’re inviting them during the holiday period, chances are, you most definitely have food prepared though if you don’t, you could order some home-made food from restaurants or you and if your guests love cooking, you could whip out a dish that most people would definitely love and you could cook it with them! If you want to serve alcoholic beverages, limit the choices to wine and beer. This will help reduce your cost. For non-alcohol drinkers and designated drivers, you can always keep it simple and set up dispensers or pitchers filled with iced water with fruit slices and freshly brewed iced tea or serve hot cocoa with all the fixings such as marshmallows, candy canes, whipped cream, etc. And since it is the holiday period, eggnogs are popular as ever and can be used as well!
One interesting game you could pick up is Secret Santa. You and your guests can pick a draw with each other and that’s where the fun begins! You could set a spending limit as low as you like and let people get creative. That way, your guests will only have to buy one gift instead of a gift for each guest. Also, if your budget allows, you could send your guests home with gifts such as ornaments or special sweet treats like fresh baked cookies or homemade candies.
Another interesting party you could have is basically a wholesome Christmas movie! For instance, Home Alone has a reboot now. and it’s everyone’s favorite Christmas movie (well, almost.) There are plenty of movies that a family could watch together and it’s better if you have a subscription service to something like Netflix, Hulu or something along those lines, you’ll most likely have content curated for the holiday theme as well, so that’d be a great idea.
But another great idea is basically just chilling around and playing a ton of games that everyone can enjoy regardless. One of them is basically our own games, here on Fat City Entertainment. We have Trivia which is actually one of the most popular games we have in our store. There are various topics to choose from and the feedback we’ve received has been incredibly great! You can check them out here if you ever are interested in that. We also have a Christmas Special Game Pack, which includes a simple knowledge trivia with 5 Christmas themed categories. Plus, it also includes bonus rounds as well! Another game includes Music Trivia which includes final challenges and bonus rounds as well.
We also have a plethora of music trivia games and music bingo games as well! Music bingo is essentially a different take on bingo where instead of crossing out numbers, you cross out music based on what music the caller/DJ plays.
That’s some of the games and holiday party ideas we have. We’d love to know if you have any more ideas. Feel free to mail us at email@example.com if you have any questions!
Time to party!
Nostalgia and great music? Well, this is the right place! MUSIC BINGO FEATURING SONGS FROM MICHAEL JACKSON, QUEEN AND MORE! THE GREATEST MUSICAL ERA!
Feeling nostalgic? Want to travel back to the greatest era ever? Now you can! It's the 80s themed Music Bingo!
The 80s was truly a great time to live and people who were born and grew up in that time would agree. It was simpler and the music made then was simply great! It still is timeless and even the current generation of artists are producing music that is reminiscent of the older style. This playlist features popular singers, including Michael Jackson, Phil Collins and famous bands like Queen, Wham! among many others. Some could say that this was the golden generation of music and some would agree. And most would certainly agree that an 80s themed music bingo party would definitely be an amazing idea!
So to start things off, you’d need decorations. Decorations are key to any and every party. They set the mood and help people get into it as well. Imagine it being something like a kickstarter for a party. And for an 80s party, getting people into the mood is something that should be paid close attention to. During the 80s, neon colors were incredibly popular and was basically the theme. Every invite, every club back in the day was filled with neon color decor. You certainly will be hitting the brief of an 80s themed party. Consider using black as well for contrast. Another cool thing that can be used as decor is essentially an arcade game or even a photo booth. That’ll be nailing the brief!
Of course, if you have a themed party, you need the right dress code. People during the 80s wore, what we would consider today, to be some of the wackiest and weirdest clothing options available. They’re loud and bright and everything in between. Some ideas are scrunchies, ripped jeans among many others. Ask guests to come in their favorite 80s creations. Be prepared to see plenty of legwarmers, neon, animal prints, and hot pink. Or if you want, ask your guests to come dressed as their favorite 80s actor, actress or even their favorite movie character! The possibilities are endless when it comes to playing dress up! Look at some pictures and get inspired!
Next up, food. If you run a bar, you’d definitely have a lot of tables. The centerpiece for any table can be a simple Rubik’s Cube, 3x3 of course. Why? Well, during the 80s, Rubik’s Cubes peaked and you could find those nifty little thingamajigs in everyone’s hand, trying to solve it. And you can also set up a bar with some really colorful drinks. Swap out classics for some really bright and fun colored drinks, like a Midori Sour, for example. Besides, you can also have a candy bar for people that want to indulge in some of their favorite 80s candies, like Sour Patch Kids, Push Pops, Chupa Chups and more! It’s pretty evident that these candies can actually invoke nostalgia in the party and adds to how immersive the party is!
And of course, the main thing - the music bingo! While playing the song, you can ask the guests or contestants or audience to dance to it if they want to. You could have some space allocated for that if you do have that much space. If you also wanted to, you can add a karaoke machine which would add a lot of fun and ask the audience or your guests to sing to it. People would love it if they could sing along to the song and also just create a fun atmosphere. A fun little touch to the party would also be to add the music bingo sheet on a neon colored paper. As a prize to the winner, you can hand them a Rubik's Cube which was, like we mentioned earlier above, was incredibly popular in the 80s.
Finally, you need the invitations. If you’re the kind of person who goes all out, you know that invitations can bring a party together. It just feels like the bow on the tie. If you wanted to, similar to the music bingo sheets, you can print out the invitations or to be more precise, design the invitation around neon colors and splatter paint on it.
You can also come up with your own amazing 80s based ideas and ensure that your guests have an amazing time! If you do have any great suggestions, feel free to let us know in the comments section below and if you need our playlists, you can find them on all major platforms like Spotify, Amazon Music, etc.

Imagine not being able to perceive colors, things will certainly be very very drab and dull and it’ll feel like everything’s monotonous... Good thing that music exists! Check out Music dobOFF Bingo Card Print Pack "Colors" now.
By adding a dash of color to something, it always makes things so much more interesting. Did you know that different colors convey different emotions? And similarly, we here at Fat City Entertainment have different songs with colors in their titles, a different take on the classic Music Bingo that we have with our awesome theme appropriate playlists. We have all the songs from the Pink Panther Theme to hit songs like Back in Black and many more!
We have amazing ideas for you if you plan on hosting a Color based Music Bingo contest or a simple party soon so let’s take a look at some of those.
One awesome idea is that to stick with the theme of colors, you can print our PDFs using thick stock or colored paper. It makes things so much fun and goofy and also resonates with the theme, colors! Using a different colored paper compared to the age old white would certainly add character and it also shows people that you also put in the thought to plan your music bingo party. If you want, you can print it all on the same colored paper but you can always go the extra mile, where it’s less crowded, and print it on different colored papers for each paper. It’s a much welcome change from printing on the age old white paper. Besides, it wouldn’t hurt printing on different colored papers. If you have a guest list, you can print the PDFs on colors that they love! Now that’d be so cool!
So, now that you’ve sorted out the paper thing, you could decide on the dress code. Most people love dressing up and once they’ve heard there’s a dress code at a party, they’ll most definitely dress to impress! One simple idea for a dress code is to ask your guests or bar customers to dress up in the brightest and most fun colors they have in their closet! It’ll be so fun to see everyone in their best colors and to make things even better and more interesting, you can certainly add in another prize (on top of the winner of the bingo contest) to determine who’s the most colorful person in the room and gift them an awesome prize, like a colored drink (more on that later!) or if you’re a very crafty person, you can design a lovely phone case for them in their favorite color.
Pride month is a special month and celebrates the rights of those who identify themselves under LGBTQIA+. If you run a bar that openly supports the LGBTQIA+ people, you can certainly host a lovely colors themed music bingo night! This would also help boost your business and also make them feel very included! You can certainly add a lot of Pride Month themes for your bar or restaurant. Besides, people love to be represented and they also would enjoy this! You can also use colorful decorations and make people more comfortable in your restaurant or bar.
Another interesting aspect to keep things interesting is to stick to a sub theme or play color based games. For instance, Guitar Hero and Beat Saber, some of the most popular games available out there, have some really amazing themes. If you want, you can also consider Osu! and have a small contest on who’s the superior player. All of these games are one of the most colorful and beautiful games out there.
And finally, this tip is for those who make their own drinks and own bars and restaurants. You can make dishes and drinks that have the colors as names. It certainly helps stick with the theme of colors and makes things interesting. You can go one step further by learning new dishes and adding natural color to cupcakes or drinks. It only adds to the theme and what’s more, it’s also a good time for you to flex your cooking muscles and dazzle them with your cooking.
You can also come up with your own amazing color based ideas and ensure that your guests have an amazing time! If you do have any great suggestions, feel free to let us know in the comments section below and if you need our playlists, you can find them on all major platforms like Spotify, Amazon Music, etc.
Happy colorful music bingo!
