A dinner party might be a lot of work for you, but it is fun for the guests.
If you feel that it is too much work to make dinner for all your family and friends, you can ask the closest ones to come and help you the day before.
This way you can have some fun and share the cooking and baking.
A Christmas dinner party doesn't have to be a huge dinner.
You can also make a very casual buffet with food that everybody likes such as pizza, chicken, baked goods, salads, meatballs and so on. If you would like to make it more traditional, you can also have a sit down dinner around the dinner table.
Since a dinner party is centered around the table (and most probably you will be sitting around one), focus on decorating the table. For this you should have Christmas theme napkins and tableware, candles and a centerpiece as well. The centerpiece can be assembled from pine cones sprayed with silver paint, some evergreen boughs such as holly, candles and a star. The tableware can be regular tableware, just focus on choosing the right colors. For example you can choose red and silver, and then have silver napkins with red plates.

After the dinner, have a gift exchange. You can announce this on the invitations, so all people know that they have to get a gift. You can either have a tree and put the gifts underneath, or you can have a gift exchange table. After dinner you can place the gifts there and have someone who sits there and hands the gifts to all the guests, one by one. You can also make a more interesting version of this. Everybody still has to bring one gift, but they won't know who they are bringing it for. You will write down the names of all the guests on the paper, and everybody has to draw one of the papers with the names (you can use a hat or a box for this). The person they have chosen will get the gift that they have brought.
You can use simple Christmas party invitations, but you can also focus more on the theme that you have chosen. For example you can put the menu on the invitation to make people even more excited about coming. Another idea is to look for printable invitations online that are especially made for dinner parties for Christmas. These usually feature fancy tableware in a Christmas festive setting.
