Travel 3500 miles across the pond this Christmas and celebrate in the 'big apple'. New York conjours up so many memories and imaginative thoughts for people. From the gritty Bronx to glamorous Broadway, a real contrast can be offered in this theme. We recommend break dancers for street entertainment and a Radio Rockette's style Broadway show. Food can be inspired by New York's finest street food traders and washed down with Manhattan's finest cocktails. Take a look at the fantastic party Smart Christmas Parties are throwing at Willows Farm in St Albans.
Lights, camera action and the glitz and glamour will commence. As ladies arrive in their elegant gowns the red carpet will be rolled out, and your guests welcomed for a glamorous night ahead through the flashing bulbs of paparazzi. The stars of Hollywood are out to impress your audience, with dramatic stage shows and wandering acts from eras gone by.
This would be a Christmas party to be seen at.
