On Your Marks, Get Set, Go! Christmas Is Coming!
Thu 11 Aug 2016
There’s no avoiding it, Christmas is fast approaching. Once summer becomes a distant memory, our thoughts turn to the Autumn wardrobe and ultimately Christmas. In just over four months the John Lewis, M&S and Coke-Cola festive adverts will have aired, the X Factor will be approaching its climax and the office Christmas party season will be in full swing.
Booking a Christmas party need not be a daunting task, as long as the planning and preparation has been done early. Naturally, the best venues do get booked up early and the reoccurring trend points to bookings being made during these late summer months, so check the myriad of options and early bird deals to secure the most attractive rates. The longer you delay booking your Christmas party or venue, the less likely you are of securing the date you want. This is especially relevant if you want to secure a Thursday or Friday night, as they’re usually the first to go during November and December.
There are many factors to consider when booking a Christmas party or venue, such as: budget, theme, catering, location, entertainment, wow factor and facilities to name a few. As we continue to operate in an uncertain post Brexit era, budget will likely be the most significant factor in the decision making process. However, with Christmas parties back on the corporate agenda, the longer you leave it, the less choice you’ll have and the more expensive it will ultimately become.
Everyone from the CEO to the intern will have an opinion on how their Christmas party should look, however one thing is certain, the event should feature exquisite food, seamless service and engaging entertainment. Smart Christmas Parties lead the way in hosting unique themed parties, managing and catering for up to 2,000 seated guests on a given night. All Smart Christmas Parties are catered onsite by the award-winning Smart Hospitality, under the watchful eye of Group Executive Head Chef David Ridgway.
