If you are busy and you don't have a lot of time to prepare for a Christmas party, or perhaps you would also like to spend time only with your family, you can host a short Christmas tea party.
This way you can see your friends and have fun with them before going to a more traditional and official Christmas dinner. You can serve tea and cookies and have a lovely chat with your closest friends.
Make sure you have a various types of teas such as black tea, green tea and Christmassy teas as well as flavored teas with cinnamon, nutmeg and other spices, orange, ginger and so on.
Set the table for the tea party using candles and teacups
preferably white ones that are fit for Christmas. Use Christmas theme napkins, such
as ones with reindeer, snowflakes, hollies and ribbons. Light a few candles
around the table and put on some Christmas music, but play it low. Don't forget
about a Christmas tablecloth either! You can tie a Christmas ribbon around each
teacup to make the atmosphere more festive. Use a large wreath for a
centerpiece decorated with hollies.

Organize a gift exchange, but specify that each gift has to be somehow associated with tea. For example the guests can bring as gifts teacups, saucers, tea bags, tea bag holders and anything that they can think about. Make sure that you agree in an approximate price range for the gifts.
You can also combine this short Christmas party with something useful. For example, you can all do some Christmas decorations together. You can ask each guest to bring some supplies, and together you can make decorative wreaths, decorations for the tree and the house, depending on what the majority decides. At the end everybody can take home their decorations.
Look for Christmas invitations with a teacup or tea set on them. There are plenty of these. Make sure you choose one that fits to the color of your decorations. You can write a Christmas poem or a Christmas verse on the invitations.
