It may well only be the beginning of September but with children returning to school, Christmas is only just around the corner. And if it is your responsibility to plan the office Christmas party but you haven’t already booked somewhere, now really is the time to tick this one off your ‘To Do’ list.
To theme or not to theme?
That is the question. Having a theme for your party is a great way of creating a focus for your event, with everything from décor to dress being in keeping with the theme. Here are a few ideas;
- A Caribbean Christmas with stilt walkers and fire-eaters
- Your own winter festival with street food vendors
- A decade-specific silent disco
- A Christmas murder mystery
With stunning drapes, spectacular lighting and a blank canvas venue, whether you choose to theme your event or not, you’ll have the perfect backdrop to showcase your imagination.
Shared or solo?
If you’re organising a Christmas party for a small group, do you decide to party alone, or do you join in a bigger event with your group? Whatever the number of people, a perfectly sized space will help to create a real party atmosphere. Why not book a private dining room to make your Christmas meal out with colleagues feel that extra bit special? You can relax, chat and laugh away all in the exclusive privacy of your own room.
Why not add an element of team building into your Christmas party? How about;
- An indoor games competition
- Beer or wine tasting
- A cookery class in learning how to prepare a delicious Christmas lunch, which you can then tuck into at the end of the session
You can even include an ugly Christmas jumper competition to turn up the festive fun another notch!
If your Christmas get-together is for a senior management team or needs to include an element of meeting time with an overnight stay, then the exclusive hire of a stunning house with rooms is a fabulous alternative to simply booking a hotel. With all the comforts of a luxurious home, they offer the discrete space needed for serious discussions to take place and room in which to relax when work is done.
Whether your group is large or small; whether you theme or not, choosing a venue that kicks off the evening with a real ‘wow’ is a great place to start. There’s no need to opt for the usual, when the unusual, the quirky and the quite simply amazing are available too.
