The Event Hire Company – Christmas Parties
Finally, after such a long wait, we’re on the home stretch to Christmas! I’m sure the exciting build-up to the big day is beginning to set in and you’re just itching to enjoy the festive treats, presents and relaxation the season has to bring. Some of us, however, also love the creative side of Christmas where we can design and plan away to our heart’s content!
So here’s an early present for all of you event profs, Christmas party organisers & festive décor fanatics; some cool Christmas themed parties that we’ve recently worked on!
Let’s start off with something we did recently – this was an event at the spacious Truman Brewery where we and our friends at Seasoned hosted an ice cool Christmas party. We decked the hall(s) with our favourite ice Chiavari chairs and set the tables with awesome globe table centres. These plus a cold blue light, gave the event a chilly yet cosy winter theme!
Hosting something more intimate? Why not opt for something like this Christmas table centre? It looks amazing on a dinner table and includes stunning handcrafted pieces like the Christmas trees!
What’s even better is that the trees are actually candles! Not only that, they are accompanied by even more candles in the form of candelabras to alleviate the need for any harsh artificial lighting.
How can we forget the place setting? Check out those fantastic gold charger plates! They’re always a trusted choice for dinner events as they make everything that little bit more special. I mean, who wouldn’t want to eat their dinner from a large gold plate!
Finally, a special little touch that we just love is adding a miniature Christmas tree on top of each of the plates! If your guests weren’t feeling Christmassy when they first came to dinner, we’re sure they will be as soon as they sit down!
Corporate events always offer a perfect opportunity to let our creative side run free, especially around this time of year. The venues are filled with groups of merry people looking to celebrate Christmas with colleagues, so decoration must be both sophisticated enough to resemble a corporate event whilst being festive enough to embody the Christmas spirit.
That’s why we’re really proud of one of our recent events held at the Big Top in Bloomsbury. This event combined the festive feeling unique to Christmas with the highly decorated, lavish styling of a corporate event.
The venue was decorated with attractive fairy lights hanging from the ceiling, while below there was a large circular table big enough to seat at least 10 people! To finish off the furnishings we added a firm customer favourite, Chiavari chairs. This, as well as a large breakout area was the perfect formula for an amazing Christmas party.
Here’s a lovely festive table centre that was used at a Christmas dinner party one of our clients hosted. We love this table centre because it just screams Christmas, with the silver baubles and snowflakes. The flowers are wrapped in a stylish silver banding alongside gorgeous weighted candle holders – perfect for creating an intimate dinner experience. Pair this table centre with, you guessed it, our very signature ice Chiavari chairs and you have yourself a winter wonderland theme. We also recommend going the whole hog and adding in some silver charger plates to make that dinner just a tiny bit more special. Why not throw some fairy lights into the mix too? They’ll give your table that Christmassy feel and they look amazing with extravagant table centres.
