The Ultimate Christmas Party Playlist

There is nothing better than a good Christmas party. Ugly sweaters, festive cocktails, a white elephant gift exchange, and good friends are just about all you need to host a great holiday gathering! That being said, even the most carefully-planned Christmas party can fall flat without some holly-jolly tunes to set the scene. The music is one of the first things your guests will experience at your party, but all too often we get so busy with cooking and decorating that it gets overlooked or left until the last minute. If this happens to you, look no further! I’ve put together a fun and festive Christmas party playlist that you can pull up on Spotify here. I’ve included both old classics and more modern renditions that still have a quirky, upbeat feel without being too overbearing. It’s like a Christmas mixtape (who remembers those?) from me to you! So listen away, and enjoy your party! Merry Christmas!
