Getting You Ready To Celebrate The Festive Season!
With Christmas being one of the most popular times of the year to host parties and events, now is the perfect time to start think ahead and plan what you’re going to do to celebrate this period of good cheer!
Christmas parties have for many years now become the go-to event for various companies and corporations across the UK and overseas – the annual event to let your hair down and have fun with your colleagues.
Read on to find out the key elements that need to be considered when planning your Christmas event and get some of the ideas of things you can do to make it extra special for your guests.
Choose A Christmas Event Theme
Themed parties are a great way of bringing all the personalities in your office together in one festive party. Whether the theme is a traditional winter wonderland or the quirkier mad hatters’ tea party, your theme will contribute to making your company Christmas party one to remember. You want your theme to match everything that embodies your company and the staff. Here are some potential themes:
The Great Gatsby
The Great Gatsby theme is for the ‘work hard play hard’ office – the allure of New York’s cabaret and opulent parties will give guests the excuse to dress up in classic double-breasted suits and glamorous flapper dresses ready to dance the night away….which is often the best part.
The James Bond theme is for the gamblers and risk-takers – a traditional Christmas theme isn’t enough for the characters in your office and therefore you need something interactive yet classy, something exciting yet sophisticated to ‘shake’ things up for your guests. Grab your tuxedos and cocktails for a night full of extravagance and fun.
Charlie And The Chocolate Factory
If you come from an office full of foodies then it goes without saying that the way to their hearts is through their stomachs. This tongue-in-cheek party theme is a perfect way of showing your staff you appreciate their hard work with a golden-ticket to this tasteful festive event. Despite all being professional hard workers, you’re all kids at heart that wish to end the year on a (sugar) high right?
Lastly, the Winter Wonderland theme is for those who are all about cosy nights in front of the fire, classic Christmas films, a mug of mulled wine and waking up to a white Christmas. With this theme, you’ll be able to dress up in elegant gowns and dapper tuxedos with the addition of fairy lights and props that’ll help bring everyone the real white Christmas you’ve all been waiting for!
