With nearly 30 years of event experience, we know what it takes to make a Christmas event stand out from the crowd.   Here are a few things to think about when planning your festive occasions.

Theme

What better way to bring the magic of Christmas to your event than by having a creative theme to get your delegates in the festive mood.

Why not open a suggestion box for your employees to submit ideas, allowing them to be involved in the design.  Award prizes for best idea to incentivise them.

There are many theme ideas, but Après Ski, Enchanted Forest & Winter Wonderland are a few. From candy canes and snow machines to breath-taking props and table centres, we can help transform your venue to create a ‘wow’ Christmas setting.

Catering

Incorporate your Christmas theme into your food and drinks solution by adding novelty food elements – everyone loves a meringue snowman or a brownie and strawberry Santa hat.  But always remember to cater carefully for your guests with special diets!

As well as the obligatory festive drinks bar, why not have a hot chocolate station in-keeping with your theme to keep attendees feeling warm and comforted.

Entertainment

Don’t forget to keep people buzzing with entertainment.  If you have the space, you may like to consider a Christmas themed aerial show for that wow factor or if you’re going with an Après Ski theme, a photobooth with retro ski photo props? Or for Winter Wonderland, maybe some hired elves and carol singers, there are so many options to build the event engagement, entertainment and interaction.

Photo Opportunity Stations

People love to take a selfie or have a professional photo and what’s better than having a Christmas themed selfie station for your delegates to capture photos as a memento from the event. Inflatable snow globes allow guests to go inside to pose for photos which will be a big hit with everyone. Inflatables also provide branding and sponsorship opportunities and with the snow that is blown in for that falling effect in the photos, it’s a focal point for any event. On the other hand, your Christmas winter wonderland scenery can be abundant with magical trees, props and photo opportunities such as an ice throne, hidden photo booths and secret food and drinks stations to discover.

Whatever your budget, there’s always a solution to create an experience.
