Send Out Themed Invitations
The first step when planning any party is making a guest list. And once it’s time to gather up the whole gang, there’s no better way than to send out these adorable Snoopy invites. Drop them in the mail a few weeks before the big day.
Set Out a Festive Spread
Speaking of dessert tables, you’ll want to set out a festive spread for your party guests. We love this look from Party Pinching that includes the iconic Charlie Brown Christmas tree, a Santa Snoopy and tons of snacks! These tasty recipes were inspired by all of your favorite Christmas movies.
Cozy Up and Enjoy the Show
No Charlie Brown Christmas party is complete without a viewing of the classic film! Buy or rent a copy, or schedule your party to coincide with the annual television screening. For an extra-cozy touch, encourage guests to wear pajamas (we love this Peanuts collection!) and provide tons of cozy blankets, pillows and stuffed toys.
Add a Little Pop to Your Party
You can’t watch a movie without popcorn! This adorable printable popcorn box comes from Chica and Jo—and it’s just the beginning. They have everything you need for a Peanuts party—including banners, favor bags and more. (Fill up the boxes with our gourmet popcorn recipes.)
Keep the Party Going with Christmas Trivia
After the movie, keep the excitement going by playing a round of Christmas-themed trivia. Keep all of the questions related to the classic or branch out and include other holiday favorites. Here are a few questions to get you started:
- What is the song in Charlie Brown Christmas? (Christmas Time Is Here)
- How much is a visit with “Doctor” Lucy? (5 cents)
- Who sang the Charlie Brown Christmas song? (Music by Vince Guaraldi Trio/Vocals by a children’s choir from St. Paul’s Episcopal Church)
- What does Lucy want for Christmas? (Real estate)
Don’t Forget the Snoopy Snax!
Your guests won’t be able to get enough of this tasty combo of puppy chow, peanuts and yellow-coated candies from Momma Told Me. Snoopy Snax is perfect for party-time munching, but you could also pack it into individual goodie bags to send home with your guests.
