Christmas is a special time of year, full of traditions and family. But sometimes it's fun to mix things up and get creative. This year, try a '70s Christmas theme celebration. From the Christmas decor to serving fondue, your family and friends will have a great time celebrating the holiday with you.

Decorate your house to look like Christmastime in the 1970s. Hang a disco ball in the middle of the main entertainment room. Use mini disco ball ornaments to decorate your tree. If you can find the big-bulb, old-fashioned Christmas lights for your tree and house, use those rather than the mini ones. If you can find love beads, especially silver, gold, red or green, hang them up in a doorway. Instead of a regular wreath for the front door, make one from the disco ball ornaments, or turn your wreath into a peace sign by adding an extra piece of greenery down the middle and diagonally off to the sides.
Fondue was very popular in the 1970s. With a fondue kit (yes, you can still find them these days), you can make a fondue party. Cheese fondue, meat fondue, and chocolate fondue are all popular. There are also a number of '70s side dishes to have out when your guests arrive. Some ideas: Deviled eggs, cheese popcorn, cocktail weenies or pigs in a blanket, classic, Chex mix, Pringles crisps, Bugles snacks. Salad bars are also very '70s. Different types of salad fixings and choices of dressings and croutons are key.
Try to find gifts that are inspired by or really are from the '70s: Anything disco-related, like disco music, disco-inspired platform shoes or accessories, stationery, fondue sets or other home goods with '70s-inspired patterns will work. Gifts that are actually from that decade can be found in vintage and thrift stores and online, at auction sites like eBay. Vintage clothing and accessories are a great gift for this theme. Many '70s home decor items can be found in thrift stores. Seventies artwork (think black-light posters and paintings on velvet) is a unique gift as well.
For extra punch, try to find vintage or seventies-inspired wrapping paper. Silver or gold wrapping paper also works nicely. Have some fun with the gift giving. You may even want to do a seventies themed white elephant gift table.
