The holidays are fast approaching, which means Christmas parties galore on the agenda. If you’re hosting, but want to break away from the same old scene—and can’t imagine wearing yet another ugly sweater (us either!)—we have just the thing to add a little more cheer to your celebration. Gather your girlfriends, sisters or out of town guests, pick out a new favorite pair of pajamas and get ready for a fun and cozy night in. Here’s our guide to throwing a wonderfully festive pajama party.
Set the Tone
Just because it’s casual, doesn’t mean you should forgo the little details. Set the scene by sending out invitations with all the pajama party info and ever important dress code! Check out sites like tinyprints.com and minted.com for inspiration. And be sure to give your guests enough time to find the perfect pajamas.
Look the Part
As host, your attire should be on point (that’s right, faded flannel won’t cut it for this occasion). Treat yourself to a new pair of holiday-exclusive pajamas, matching slippers and an ultra comfy robe for that extra snuggle factor. If you’re in a warmer climate, Cool Nights pajamas have breathable fabric to keep you cool and dry as you entertain. If you’re expecting chilly temps, then Embraceable pajamas will keep you cozy all night.
Make the Menu Memorable
Keep with the theme when it comes to your menu. Bake gingerbread cookies, indulge in hot chocolate or egg nog while watching a holiday classic, and of course ensure the champagne is flowing as you toast to the season. (If you love bubbly as much as we do, you’ll love these and these!)
Wrap Up Cozy Gifts
Play some cheerful holiday music and have everyone bring their most decadent wrapping paper, bags, bows, tags and tissue for a gift wrapping party. You’ll have so much fun sharing creative ideas while checking one more thing off your holiday checklist!
Don’t Forget the Selfie
Snap a few photos of all the fun you’re having so that you can look back on them for years to come. Then, upload your Soma pajama pics, during our #PAJAMASALLDAY Giveaway, for a chance to win a $100 gift card. Get the details at Soma.com.
