Without further ado, allow us to introduce you to the meetings and events venue that will give you the best Christmas party experience in Central London!

OUR TOP 3 CHRISTMAS THEME PARTY IDEAS!

 

A  MASQUERADE BALL

 

There is something magical about the Christmas party theme, which means you don’t have to stare at the same faces of your colleagues! Invite your guests to a luxurious and mysterious masquerade themed Christmas party! Hold a feast with an appropriate theme and watch the mask be taken off and your true identity is revealed! After the meal is over, ask your guests to put on their masks again, then spin directly to the dance floor and continue dancing and having fun all night.

Winter Wonderland Christmas Party

 

For an extra special twist on the classic Christmas party, why not hold a winter wonderland theme party? Let your guests arrive at a venue with a mountain backdrop, fake snow, Christmas trees and flashing lights-this is the perfect setting for a night of celebration. Greet them with a glass of mulled wine and a live entertainment on arrival, and then let them sit down for a delicious three-course Christmas dinner! Make the dress code all white or festive colours, and let them dance with a live band or DJ at night. Be sure to get a photo booth with Christmas themed props to commemorate the evening!

Chocolate Factory Christmas Party

 

Christmas is one of the only times of the year where you can eat all the chocolate, candy and sweet treats you want without feeling guilty. So why not have a chocolate factory themed Christmas party! Decorations should be candy-themed; lots of candy colours and stripes. Place candy-canes at every table and huge cut-out cupcakes along the walls. Dinner food should be fun and funky.  For dessert, what better than a candy buffet or a decorate-your-own cupcake station? This is bound to get your guest’s smiling with excitement!

THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN PLANNING A XMAS PARTY!

 

 

SET THE DATE

 

Anybody who knows anything about planning a Christmas party knows finding a date can be tricky! We advise you plan and book a venue as early as possible.  

 

CONSIDER YOUR BUDGET

 

Budget is probably the most important element of your event, it will determine elements such as food, entertainment and even any potential themes. Always communicate with your party planner (if applicable) so that they can manage expectations and create the best night possible!

 

CONFIRM THE NUMBERS

 

Send emails around the office to let your employees know the suggested date. Ask them to reply within an appropriate time so that you can continue with your organising…
