It’s that time of year again! The festive season is almost upon us and Odin Events has plenty of props available to hire that are guaranteed to add a touch of festive spirit to your Christmas event.
Christmas is all about having a blast with your loved ones and work colleagues, with lots of fun parties and themed activities to keep the festive spirit going strong all December long. There are endless lists of activities that all help to make your Christmas period the best it can be. In this blog post, we will talk about some ideas to inspire your next holiday-themed event.
Is it too early to decorate for Christmas?
Is that even a question? Well… If we’re being specific, yes it is. Technically, Christmas trees and decorations should go up on the first day of Advent, which is the fourth Sunday before Christmas. However, it’s not set in stone, and leading up to the festive season, you should start putting up your decorations whenever the inspiration hits.
What entertainment to have at a Christmas party?
Hosting a Christmas event can be a lot of fun, but it's also a big responsibility. With so many entertainment options out there, it can be tough to decide what to choose. Here are some of our favourite ways to bring the holiday cheer:
- Santa’s Grotto: What's a celebration without good ol' Saint Nick? By hiring a Santa’s Grotto with Odin Events, you'll get to hang out with Santa himself in a warm and cosy Lapland cabin. It's the perfect party addition for both kids and adults! Accompanied by Santa’s Elves and a collection of beautiful decorations and props, this immersive experience will be sure to bring a huge smile to your guest's faces! Only if you’re on the ‘nice list’ that is…
- Synthetic Ice Rink: Bring the ‘Wonder’ to your Winter Wonderland party with a synthetic ice rink. At Odin Events, our ice rinks offer a truly magical experience, complete with a realistic skating rink and a cosy seating area to relax and watch the fun. Whether you prefer the great outdoors or the comfort of indoor skating, we've got you and your Christmas party covered.
- Giant Snow Globes: Make unforgettable holiday memories with your loved ones using our amazing Giant Snow Globes! These globes are a whopping 3 metres tall and come with all sorts of fun additions, including a Frosty the Snowman prop, a 5ft Christmas tree, faux presents, snowballs for a thrilling snowball fight, and even biodegradable snow that's safe for the environment.
- Accessible Santa’s Sleigh: The sleigh bells are ringing! Suitable for everyone, our Christmas sleigh looks great in all venues, is wheelchair friendly and makes a great photo opportunity. The Festive sleigh comes in two sections and is assembled on-site leaving an access path through the centre for wheelchair users or those with additional needs. There’s enough room for the whole family!
What’s included in a Christmas trail?
A Christmas-themed trail is a brilliant way to get your guests on their feet. At Odin Events, we have a variety of trails available. The following are some of our most popular festive-themed trails, perfect for any town centre or large-scale event:
- Nutcrackers and Toy Soldiers: You may be asking yourself - what is the meaning of the Nutcracker at Christmas? Well, according to German folklore, nutcrackers were given as keepsakes to bring luck to the family and protect the home. Making them the perfect theme for a Christmas trail with your family! They'll light up your event with a traditional look and feel, and create an amazing atmosphere that your guests will love.
- Gingerbread Family: Looking for a way to sprinkle some sugar on your Christmas party? Why not hire our entire Gingerbread family as part of a festive trail? These High-quality Gingerbread Man Props look good enough to eat and will be sure to give a truly festive feel to your trail.
