5 Things You Need to Know About Booking Your Christmas Party

Winter’s on its way, and we’re pulling together some of our most incredible Christmas parties yet. If you’re thinking about organising your own Christmas party we’ve got some great tips to help you on your way, from venue finding tricks to exciting entertainment. Here are five things you need to know about booking your Christmas party:

1. IT’S ALL ABOUT THE VENUE

Choosing your venue and party location is one of the most important decisions you’ll face. Consider not just the look of the venue but its flexibility, its theming, the packages it offers and most importantly the location.

2. PERSONAL TOUCHES COUNT

Think about the demographic of your guests. For smaller offices you could take over a pub and create an incredible party with bespoke theming, or if your office is larger think about more presitigious venues such as the Natural History Museum or One London Wall.

3. THERE’S MORE TO CHRISTMAS PARTIES THAN DINNER AND DANCING

From a seated menu to a more unusual event centered on a team building activity – or an event centred on entertainment – the possibilities are endless! And don’t forget to nail down a dress code.

4. THEMING CAN TRANSPORT GUESTS TO ANOTHER WORLD

Give guests a taste of what to expect by running your theme from the invitation to the day after the party – it’s not just about the night itself. Bacon baps for breakfast anyone?

5. YOUR MENU MATTERS

You don’t have to stick to traditional Christmas menus, this is a great chance to have some fun! You could choose street food, canapes or even food which fits your chosen theme. Make sure there’s plenty of food for your guests to avoid a nasty bar bill at the end of the night!
