12 Creative Holiday Party Ideas for Remote ,Hybrid or In Person Gatherings!

by Donna Lita on November 09, 2022

The best holiday parties are the ones guests remember for being creative, where they connect with others and share some laughs! 

The problem with holiday parties in 2022

  • Tired of Zooming
  • Accustomed to staying home
  • Perceived as too costly
  • Another awkward happy hour?

      What if you could plan a party that's simple, and focused on relaxed connections, creativity and laughter? What if your guests could leave with a memento of their own creation that they can look at to remind them of that shared experience with a smile?

      Here's our 12 Creative Holiday Parties - Remote, Hybrid or In-Person.


      1. Creative Cocoa Mug Painting - Paint mugs together while indulging in rich creamy hot cocoa. If gathering in person set up a Hot Chocolate Bar with hot cocoa mix, peppermint sticks, marshmallows, cinnamon sticks, caramels, cookies,and more!  Shippable Fun Mug Kit from Laugh A Lot Art Events include all art supplies plus cocoa mixes, peppermints, garnishes and treats!

      2. Simply Elegant Wreath Making - Begin with a hoop and wire, greenery, floral peices, and ribbon for a bow so guests create their own wreaths! Keep it simple is todays trend. They can embellish with their own baubles, to make it uniquely their's. Holiday tunes and scented candles set a warm holiday mood for this party. This is a nice morning or afternoon activity - choose a time that works for your guests.
      3. Festive Flower Pot Paint and Plant Party - Paint a pot to express yourself and celebrate the season. Add some life to the party with soil and seeds or make it evergreen with faux foliage.
      4. Woodland Ornaments - Rustic wood slices can be painted and hung with twine as ornaments on a tree or as mini door hangers. Make it a warm and rustic party with plaid decor, warm drinks or marshmallow roasting. 
      5. Cookies For Santa Plate - Paint a Plate and have a cookie party! Perfect for Cookie Exchanges. If for remote teams, send holiday cookies along with the plate decorating kit and meet online to share the joy of the season. You could even send a cookie decorating kit and douple the fun! Just make sure not to eat the paint!
      6. Christmas Canvas Painting - Choose a holiday or winter themed painting and have an artist come to your location (or meet online) as they guide your group step by step, entertain and connect guests with trivia and fun puns along with some songs of the season! Holiday treats are included in our shippable art kits.
      7. Winter Watercolors -Try your hand at watercolor painting, online or in person. Similar to the canvas experience but with a different medium. 
      8. Holiday Kraft Card Making - Learn hand lettering techniques using brush pens and create miniature paintings and craft unique one of a kind cards with  the guidance of an experienced artist and calligrapher. Great for family gatherings, remote teams or both! 
      9. Merry Mandalas - Relaxing and therapeutic, creating mandalas is a meditative practice but by no means will your art party be a snooze! With all festive paint colors, holiday music and yummy treats this activity can breathe life into your party and inspire guests. Our art kits include dotting tools, variety of paint colors, and items to paint, including stones, and wood ornaments.
      10. Spiced Up Wine Goblet Painting - Have a wine tasting party or serve up some Sangria and Mulled Spiced Wine with your guests and provide a space where they can paint their own wine goblets, using templates, following along with the art instructor. We provide shippable art kits with special paint for glass, seasonal templates, "Fun Pun" cards, and holiday treats. Wineries are also great locations for wine tasting and goblet painting parties!
      11. Craft Beer Mug Painting Party - Craft beer and craft parties are all the rage for in person and virtual parties. Much like the wine goblet painting party kits, we include, games, holiday treats and all the supplies you need to paint a beer glass. We can also combine the party so guests may choose between a beer or wine glass. Make it BYOB for virtual events. For local in person events, consider reserving a table at one of the many local breweries or tap houses in Austin, Texas!
      12. Sign of the Season Door Hanger - We love seeing what our party goers create and with this door hanger project, you get to personalize it! With a basic design and all the supplies provided, our instructor will guide you through online with shippable art kits or we can bring the party you if you are in the local Austin, TX area. 
        This party idea list has come to a close but we are always open to customizing your party to make your group experience unique and suited to your brand and culture! All our art kits are complete with all you need to creat PLUS holiday treats. AND INCLUDE SHIPPING.
