Planning Your Christmas Party
It's never too early to start planning your Christmas Party, especially if you are organising a Corporate Xmas Party and are looking to hold it on a Thursday, Friday or Saturday in December. Venues, hotels and Join-a-Parties generally get booked up pretty quickly for these key dates.
Additionally, especially if you are planning a private celebration, you may wish to consider holding your Christmas event in January as venues and hotels sometimes offer rates in the New Year that are more affordable than through December.
Once you have your date in place, visit your venue and see what they can offer before you sign your contract:
- On a complimentary basis - what they might have in-house
- Christmas Party Package - exactly what it includes
- Table Decorations
- Christmas Crackers and Novelties - it's always an idea to ask if they can match the colours of these to your theme
- Chair covers with sashes or bands
Then you need to think of a theme, perhaps in keeping within a traditional theme, for instance Winter Wonderland or A Christmas Carol. Or, perhaps a theme where guests may come in costume - for instance, a tribute to Moulin Rouge, Bollywood, Glitz and Glamour, Hollywood or our latest theme Steam Punk. A list of some of the themes we offer may be viewed here.
Having decided on your theme, you can then think about your entertainment for drinks arrivals - Paparazzi Photographers, dinner - Close Ups (magicians, caricaturists, balloon artistes), and after dinner - Cabaret Shows - Illusionists, Surprise Singing Waiters, Silks and Trapeze before you finish with a great Party/Tribute Band and DJ who know just how to make your party rock.
Here at 1 Stop Events we have all the room dressing, theme props and entertainment ideas you may be looking for, including your very own Father Christmas and his helpers.
