HOW TO: Create a Christmas party with a difference

Just been given responsibilty for organising the office Christmas Party? Plamena Stanchev, Head of Sales at Thames Luxury Charters, shares her top tips…

It’s that time of year again when, despite the summer sun blazing, attentions are turning to the festive season. With that in mind, we are delighted to share our top tips for organising a truly memorable Christmas party – take note!

Choose a standout unique venue

It is always best to think outside of the box. Simply relying on the bar nearest to the office might be considered unimaginative, and may just be treated as an ordinary ‘after work drink’ by colleagues.

If you’re taking to the capital for your party, consider a venue with a difference such as a luxury boat on the River Thames. The Thames Luxury Charters fleet, in particular, can accommodate any group size up to 600 people, and their stunning surroundings are certain to leave a lasting impression.

Captivate your audience

Hosting your event on land makes it all too easy for guests to come and go as they please. There’s no such concern with a truly captivated audience aboard a floating venue. You can rest easy knowing that everyone will be in attendance all night long to fully enjoy the effort you’ve put in.

Make it original

Light up your event with beautiful finishing touches to make it more original than any other party you’ve hosted. This could include inspired food stalls, bespoke cocktails, show-stopping entertainment, and branded decorations. Let your imagination run wild throughout the planning process and we’re certain your guests will end up hoping the night never ends!

Make sure it’s stress-free to arrange

Christmas is always a super busy time of year. The last thing you need on your plate is the company party on top of your ever-growing to do list. To make your life easier, choose a venue with a friendly, experienced and trusted events management team who will take all the stress away. A quality event coordinator will assist you with ideas and delivery, meaning all you will need to do is simply enjoy the best Christmas party ever!
