Our winters in the UK can be pretty long, with the dark nights, short days and nippy weather – but they certainly do not have to be boring. In fact, we think they are one of the best times to arrange a party or celebration.

With calendars often much clearer than during the summer months, you can feel confident that finding a date to get your loved ones together will be simpler in the winter. As well as your guestlist, a winter party means you rid yourself of any pressure on the sun coming out with countless contingency plans for different weather forecasts. On top of this, you can create magical lighting concepts and suppliers and venues will have more time for you. All in all, there are some really good reasons why hosting a winter party is good idea.

Want to arrange a winter party of your own? Contact us at – we look forward to hearing from you.

Diaries are clearer

In the summer months, you are contending with family holidays, weddings and countless other parties. During the winter months, diaries tend to be clearer, making it far easier to find a date that works for all your loved ones.

Magical Lighting

With darkness comes a whole host of opportunities to create a magical lighting concept. With a whole host of different colours, styles and brightness of lights, you can create something truly magical.

Venue and Supplier Availability

With most parties taking place between April and September, your favourite suppliers and venues are much more likely to be booked out. Hosting an event during the quieter times means that not only will you be more likely to get your top choices, but you will also get more of their attention.

No Checking Of The Weather Forecast

We’ve all been there. Having arranged a party in the summer and all we have done for the two weeks leading up to it is check the weather to see you’re able to stick to the outdoors plan. It’s stressful and when the weather doesn’t go in the way you hoped it would, it can feel disappointing. A winter event takes all this pressure away.
