What Makes The Perfect Christmas Party?
When you want to throw the perfect Christmas party there’s no one thing that will make it amazing: there are a whole host of things you need to focus on. You might find that a little bit overwhelming, but if you pick up the baton and run with it you’ll be amazed at how well the night goes. Take a look at a few of our ideas below and you’ll have a notepad full of ideas before you know it!
An Amazing Festive Theme
When you want to know what makes the perfect Christmas party the first thing you’ll need to think about is the theme. No party without a theme will as memorable as one without it, so embrace it and bring the festive cheer to the fore. If you want to be able to create memories that last a lifetime then what is a better way to do it than by looking into Christmas Prop Hire? It’ll give you plenty of ideas about how to dress the venue to impress, and it’s also a great way to get in the festive swing of things. Take a colleague or friend along for the ride and you’ll be able to bounce plenty of ideas off each other.
Something No One Else Has Seen
If you really want to throw a party that will be talked about for years, you’ll need something that will make people stop and look. Think along the lines of a Giant Inflatable Snow Globe and you’ll be halfway there. If you erect it in the entrance to the venue, you’ll be able to turn heads the moment your guests start walking through the door. It could be the ideal icebreaker that gets people in the mood from the get-go and has them ready to dance the night away. It would also serve as a great backdrop for photos and selfies that people will use to remember the event. All you have to do now is find your own snow globe!
Plenty of Festive Food
Everyone loves Christmas and if you ask them why the chances are the food will be in everyone’s top 3. Mince pies are top of the list and are a must if you’re throwing a buffet to keep people dancing late into the night. You could throw in plenty of the old school party classics like cheese on a stick, sausage rolls, and big bowls full of crisps too. It’s not all about gourmet finger food, sometimes the occasion is enough to create a night to remember, and Christmas is just such an occasion. If you want to add a little festivity to the buffet then think about Reindeer themed paper plates, Christmas crackers, and those paper party hats you only get at this time of year. And no matter what, make sure you don’t run out otherwise you’ll have plenty of grumpy guests on your hands.
We all love a dance and bit of Christmas boogying, so why not build your playlist around the Christmas classics that everyone loves? By all means, fit in plenty of the latest chart fillers as well so that there’s something for everyone. But if you get people up and out of their seats with the sounds of Christmas the evening will be all the better for it. There are plenty of sites online that will have example playlists for the Christmas classics. You could download a few and play them through one evening and see what you think. It may feel like a bit of a daunting task to be in charge of, but if you just give it a go and play your prospective playlist then you’ll be amazed at how easily the ideas begin to flow. Before you know it you’ll have plenty of ideas to give to your DJ for the night and they can take care of the rest from there.
Loads of Mulled Wine!!
We all love a little bit of mulled wine at Christmas, don’t we! If you’re hiring a bar or using a venue with a bar built in then make sure they have plenty of it available. You’ll want to arrive a little bit early and make sure its warm through and ready to drink. You could even give one of your festive helpers the job of handing out cups full to the brim as people arrive. Not only will this get people in the mood for a great night ahead, it will also allow you to warm your guests up as they make their way in from the cold.
Party Bags That Send People Home Merry
When you want to be able to send people away happy there’s no better way to do it than a party bag. Stick a Christmas cracker in there, a party hat, couple of party poppers, a hand full of pick n mix sweets, or even wrap up a few of the leftover mince pies, whatever you choose to pop inside it will leave your guests appreciated and supplied for the journey home.
People aren’t expecting designer gift bags to rival the giveaways at The Oscars. They’ll be delighted that you’ve put some thought into giving them something to take home and show the family. You could even put in a little note or selfie card so that people share the night on Facebook on their way home in the taxi. Perfect for drumming up plenty of excitement and interest for next year’s Christmas party!
The most important thing about the perfect Christmas party is that everyone needs to enjoy it, and that includes the person organising it. It’s normal to feel a little stressed about how it will pan out in the hours before, that’s understandable given how hard you’ve worked on it. But when the time comes to open the doors just let it happen and go with the flow.
Now that you know the secret ingredients that go into making the perfect Christmas party all you have to do is get started and enjoy the ride. Make it festive and make it fun, that’s all you need to do.
