If you’re not traveling during Christmas, don’t feel glum. Plan for the perfect travel themed Christmas party at work or at home and feed your travel bug.

Choose a color palette.
Colormind Desktop Screenshot – After generating a color palette, I locked two colors that I liked for my travel themed Christmas party, and kept ‘generating’ a palette until I was satisfied with the results.
If you can’t come up with colors you’ll like to use in your travel themed Christmas party, use a color scheme generator. My favorite is Colormind because it not only generates random color palettes, but you can also lock colors and upload images. Colormind will take this image and extract the colors that complement each other best to generate a color palette.
Think about a theme.
Yes, it’s a travel-themed Christmas party. But don’t be too general. Some ideas are:
Christmas Around the World
Following Santa’s Sleigh
Mythical Creatures of Christmas
Make travel themed Christmas invitations.
With a Cricut Explore Air 2, the only limitations are in your imagination. After choosing a color palette, get some cardstock, and start printing, cutting and folding. With your Cricut, if time allows, you can easily create most of the party decorations too.
Plan a menu.
Decide if you will be taking care of all the food, or if it will be a potluck party. My suggestion is that if you have guests from different parts of the world, a potluck is in order. If not, maybe it’s better if the host takes care of the food and guests bring drinks or side dishes if they like.
If you prefer to stick with your country’s traditional food, consider buying a Snack Box from Around the World to divide between your guests and expose them to international flavors.
Buy paper goods and decorations.
If you’re not making your own, you can’t forget to purchase decorations that will help set up the ambiance. The following are a few of my personal favorites:
Take some pictures.
Travel Themed Photo Booth Props Kit
Let your guests share how great your party is and have some fun with this Travel Themed Photo Booth Props Kit. Find a location with perfect lighting, DIY a backdrop, or get this gorgeous Vintage World Map Backdrop and your party photo studio is ready to go.
Keep your guests entertained with board games and games from around the world. Explore the World (boardgame) is fun and educational, and will test your guest’s knowledge of the natural and manmade world.
It is completely false that only old people enjoy playing bingo. Because of that, it will be smart of you to get GeoBingo World and GeoBingo USA for your travel themed party.
Let your guests brag about where they have traveled with this Scratch Off World Map Poster. You could even give out a special prize to the person that has traveled the most, and one to the person that has traveled less.
Give out favors.
This is the perfect time to tie together Christmas with your travel themed Christmas Party by giving out travel themed Christmas ornaments. Take a look at this Bon Voyage Suitcase Ornament and this Stacked World Signs with Globe Ornament.
