The festive season is upon us at last. It isn’t too late to throw the best Christmas party of the year – all you need is a few essentials. Here, we explore some things to think about to help your Christmas party go off with a bang.
- Consider your theme
This time of year is the perfect moment to throw a themed party. Whether you want to celebrate the roaring 20s with a lavish do, or create a winter wonderland, a theme can bring all your ideas together. If you have a clear idea of the theme, you can create a dress code, appropriate refreshments, and entertainment to suit the atmosphere.
- Double check the guestlist
Christmas is a busy time, so getting your guestlist in order is a must. Sending out clear invites with an option to RSVP is a fantastic way to get a good idea of numbers. If you have time, ask people when their preferred dates are so that you get the best possible attendance.
- Get great entertainment
Entertainment is a true essential for a legendary Christmas celebration. Depending on your theme, you can find party musicians to fit in. Festive tunes will get everyone singing along, while party standards will fill the dance floor. Live music adds something really special to your party, so don’t forget to find the perfect performers for you.
- Don’t forget refreshments
Your refreshments will be one of the most talked about elements of your event. Whether you are going to hold a sit-down dinner or offer nibbles and themed cocktails, considering your offerings in advance can ensure everyone has something to eat and drink. Adding some edible glitter can create a magical festive feeling.
- Select a flexible venue
Unless you’re holding an office party in your building, you will need to hire a venue. Having inside and outside space available is a good way to make your event more flexible, and you could even add some fake snow! Remember to keep the weather in mind, and look for a venue with heat lamps if you’ll be outside. If you are looking to plan a Christmas party this month, don’t forget these vital considerations so you can enjoy some real magic and sparkle.
