Christmas Party Planning!

Planning this season's best Christmas party!

Dare we mention the word Christmas yet? If you’re hoping to have a Christmas party this year, however big or small, we would say you need to start talking about it and planning needs to start! Whether you’re looking to host a Christmas dinner party, a festive afternoon tea, or a drinks and canape soiree, now’s the time to get into the holiday spirit and start organising it. Always popular, they’re a cheerful way to get your loved ones together, spread the festive cheer and pass on your season's greetings in person.

Having been in the full swing of lockdown last Christmas, with parties and celebrations cancelled for all, there’s a lot of festivities to make up for. With everyone wanting an extra special Christmas this year, our advice is to plan nice and early to ensure all your loved ones have the date firmly penned in their diaries.

Here at The Great Big Event, we’ve been putting on Christmas bashes for many years, and we know how to plan a good party! If you want to feel like a “guest” at your own party, you’re in the right place – do contact us by calling +44 (0)1483 230466 so we can get started right away with planning your party.

As to inspire you and get you into the Christmas spirit, we’ve summarised below some useful hints and tips for your Christmas party.

Picking the Date

First things first, you want to get your date booked in so your nearest and dearest know to keep that set aside. December is always a really busy time of year, and this year, we think that after the lack of celebrations in 2020, it is going to be even more booked up than usual. The earlier you can nail down a date, the better.

Your Invite List

Next up is deciding on your invite list. Not only do you need to get this covered off early to ensure that the invitees can keep the date free, but you need to know how many guests and who they are before you decide on what type of celebration you will host.

The Theme

Whether you are looking for a stand-up canape and fizz extravaganza, a dinner party for a more intimate group, or a big party with all your loved ones in a marquee, whatever the size of your celebrations, having a theme ensures that all components of the party are on the same page. Whether you are looking for a classic Christmas theme, a winter wonderland party, you’re hoping all your guests don Christmas jumpers, or looking to arrange something totally original, here at The Great Big Event, we can make sure that everything marries well together from the food to the decoration and music.

The Food

Every party needs great food. A Christmas party more so than ever. As everyone is celebrating, it is the one time of the year that over-indulgence is expected, and so no tasty treats are out of bounds! Whether you’re looking for catering for 200, or a dinner party for 20, as self-confessed “foodies”, you can be confident that you are in good hands with The Great Big Event. Filled with ideas, and using great quality local ingredients where possible, we create nutritious and delicious food that will leave your guests wowed.
