It’s almost upon us once again – the time of year when we embrace the festive spirit (and various other kinds of spirits) by glamming ourselves up and embarking on a couple of fun-filled weeks of Christmas parties. Whether they’re office dos, cocktail evenings with friends or large family get-togethers, Christmas parties are the perfect excuse to buy a new outfit, indulge in the mince pies and festive tipples and let your hair down with a dance and some great music.
If you’re the one charged with organising such an event, the task can sometimes seem an uphill struggle – how do you cater for so many different tastes and make sure everyone has a fantastic time? If you’re looking for Christmas party ideas and inspiration for Christmas party entertainment, here are a couple of suggestions to get your creative juices flowing.
Music has got to be the key feature of any Christmas do and we all have our favourite Christmas songs which really get us in the spirit and draw us out of our shells and on to the dance floor. They’re great booming out from speakers, but even better if you can find a top quality band to play them live – nothing fills a dance floor faster than live music, and a professional live band can inject the glitz and the buzz every social event needs to be a roaring success.
Once the music is sorted, you often find everything else falls into place naturally. The band might create a great focal point to your Christmas party entertainment, but when you’re thinking about the decorations you might consider including an ice sculpture to really impress the guests. This is a quickly developing and increasingly popular art form, with sculptors creating some truly breath-taking and unique centrepieces and even crafting entire bars from solid ice. Many are also surprisingly competitively priced, so do some research and pick a real showstopper.
So, whether it’s Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas or the classic Band Aid single, get ready to dance the night away and indulge as party season gets into full swing once again!
