Christmas Party Invitation Letter Format

Christmas is one of the most eagerly awaited events of the year and an invitation for a Christmas party must be personalized in order to convey your excitement and emotions regarding it. However, if you are sending invitations to a formal party (inviting business contacts and colleagues) you may want to keep the letter formal and to the point. For informal invitations, you can draft the letter on your computer, which will allow you to add colors, text and appropriate clip-art to your invite.


In the intro paragraph, notify the reader about your desire to have him/her over for a Christmas party. Convey how important his/her presence is on this occasion and any other details about the party. It is recommended that you host the party after the actual day, since Christmas is often celebrated with close family and friends. In any case, you will have to mention the date and venue of the party, along with the expected timings.


In the second paragraph, you can provide additional details about the event. If there is any dress code which needs to be followed or any other arrangements that need to be made, mention them clearly. Moreover, you may reveal some of the activities which will take place on that day so that your guests come prepared for them.

You may also want to clarify whether the recipient’s family can come along or not.


In the final paragraph, ask the reader, if he or she has any concerns. Tell them to RSVP the event so that you know the expected number of guests you will be hosting.  Provide them with a deadline date for your own convenience. Moreover, if it is a potluck party, ask for recommendations or provide the recipient with contact details so that he or she can coordinate easily.


If the addressee is not a local, you may want to include a map to the location of your event. Your letter can be formal or casual, depending on your relation with the invitee; however, you will need to follow invitation etiquettes, where you avoid using abbreviated words and slangs.

Tips and Warnings:

– Wordings matter a lot, so be very careful make the reader feel special to you.

– Double check details like date, venue and time before sending the letter.

– Send the invitation well in advance of Christmas so people can plan their holidays according to their priorities.
