Set the Mood!
To set the mood you’ll obviously need things such as reindeer decorations and tasty food items. Easy decoration ideas might include a reindeer pinata, helium balloons with reindeer faces are drawn on them, or a North pole welcome sign that greets your guests as they arrive.
Cute Reindeer Candy Bar Favors (pictured above) are a simple DIY and make an adorable addition to any Christmas party tablescape. Guests will love going home with one, two, or three of these cute reindeer favors!
Dress the Part
Kids love playing dress up, therefore, help them get into the spirit of things. When sending out invitations, ask each of your guests to wear something reindeer related. Items such as reindeer headbands, reindeer slippers, a kids reindeer sweatshirt, bathrobes that resemble reindeer, and other articles of clothing that highlight the overall reindeer theme. Or, to really dress the part, they may want to wear an entire reindeer costume!
If you want to take your reindeer party to the next level, consider recruiting that talented someone who likes to do face painting. Most kids love it, but I warn you ahead of time, they may not want to wash their face for a few days! Lol
Not only do children love to play dress up, they love story time! A fun way to start a reindeer party is to read a funny reindeer story. (Psst… this is a fun way to get a dad or grandpa involved!)
Adorable, soft, plush reindeer are a huge hit at a reindeer themed party and can be used as decor, door prizes, or take-home gifts for the game winners. The kids will LOVE winning and naming a cute plush reindeer!
What would a Christmas party be without playing a few games? How about a fun reindeer ring toss game, Christmas Bingo, or a quick and easy board game? There are also fun DIY games you can easily make yourself such as: Pin the Nose on Rudolph, a reindeer mini bean bag toss game, or a homemade Santa and his reindeer quiz game.
Most children love making a few easy Christmas crafts.

Include the Whole Family
If your pets do not mind having strangers or small children around, then consider including them in on the fun. Dress them in a festive pet reindeer costume too!
It’s always a good idea to have a designated area or photo booth where your guests can snap some fun and playful photos. Children love acting goofy while their picture is being taken. Psst… remember to include their parents!
In the end, it seems both young and old enjoy a lighthearted, memorable and Darling Christmas Reindeer Party!
