We are somehow halfway through 2018 already! As welcome as the warmth of summer may be to those living and working in London, event organisers will understand that we are also half way to an extremely busy season – Christmas!
It’s hard to imagine while the days are long and we enjoy the sunshine, but our Christmas dates are already selling out fast, and with good reason! As always, this year we have created two fabulous themes for our Christmas party packages; guests can either immerse themselves in the glamour of Christmas in Manhattan or can enjoy the weird and wonderful surroundings of our Alice in Wonderland theme.
By putting together themed Christmas party packages each year, we ensure we are making life as easy as possible for our clients. Here are four reasons a themed festive celebration could be ideal for you and your colleagues…
It saves you time and effort
There are so many elements to bring together to create a great party or event. Venue, catering, production and entertainment all need to interact for a memorable guest experience, and the sourcing and managing of these suppliers requires a lot of time and energy. When the venue has a readily installed theme, not only are you saved from struggling to make decisions on how to make the event look and feel, but the venue will have handled all production for you. At No.11 our Christmas packages include all theming and production, catering, venue hire and entertainment, saving you lots of time and effort.
Theming and prop quality will be higher
For our 2017 theme, we transformed the Garden Room, Courtyard, Orangery and Burdett into an old English Dickensian set. We went as far as to build a small street of buildings in the Courtyard complete with lamp posts and an old-fashioned pub to truly evoke a Dickensian atmosphere. In 2016 we transformed the space into an Italian canal complete with a gondola and Venetian bridge. We were able to go to these lengths because the props and production remained in the Courtyard for the whole of December. We can invest huge effort into using high quality props and production for you to enjoy because it is more cost-effective than doing so on an event by event basis.
Saves you money
Not needing to bring in and install theming for every individual event also saves a lot of expenditure, and these savings are passed onto you, the client! Our two packages have a price per head of £99.00 and £110.00; prices we can maintain by having a readily-installed theme along with using our in-house caterer - Food by Dish.
Guests love a theme
More than anything, your guests will love it! Attending an event with a distinct theme creates a thrilling sense of escapism and your guests will have fantastic time celebrating the festive season with colleagues.
Every year we change our theme, and over the past couple of years guests have stepped through the wardrobe into Narnia, marvelled at the cobbled streets of Dickensian London, embraced the cosy settings of a Norwegian Christmas, and partied in style at a Venetian Masquerade Ball. We believe our “Christmas in Manhattan” and “Alice in Wonderland” themes will be two of our best yet, so enquire today at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out our remaining available Christmas dates.
