The Secret to Organising the Best Christmas Party

Nothing says Christmas quite like a huge party, but if you’re hoping to make sure your Christmas party is the best of the season, you’ll need to focus on the details.

Our Christmas party experts from Ultimate Experience and JD Parties have created a definitive list of party planning tips.

The Best Day

It can be difficult picking a date that the majority of your guests can attend. Thursdays have long been the most popular choices, but Wednesdays are growing in popularity too. To really make the most of your budget opt for a less popular day such as Monday or Tuesday, this will give you more funds to spend on anything from entertainment and décor to drinks upgrades.

Creative Christmas Theming

It’s not all about Winter Wonderlands – opt for something a little more unusual for 2017 and you’re guaranteed to get guests talking! A few of our recent themes have included a Midnight Garden, Mardi Gras inspired circus celebrations and a return to the 1920s with Prohibition parties. Visit to see all the themes for 2017.

A Festive Feast

When you ask anyone what they love most about Christmas they always mention the food! So don’t forget to put on a festive feast to remember. Talk to our caterer, Create Food & Party Design, about their tempting winter menus.

Innovative Entertainment

Of course you can’t have a Christmas party without a DJ and dancing, but there’s plenty more entertainment you could add too. Ultimate Experience’s Christmas party packages include a wide range of entertainment, from magicians and acrobats to photo booths and even dodgems.

Location, Location, Location

When considering your venue, it’s easy to get carried away with the look and theming, but for many guests the most important factor is location. Choose somewhere that’s easy for your guests to get to and from and you’ll ensure they stay much later and really get into the spirit of the occasion.

Getting Merry

Design your own themed Christmas cocktails, fill your venue with the tempting scent of mulled wine and spices or serve up warming drinks like hot chocolate and mulled cider and your guests will be merry in no time! Ultimate Experience’s Christmas party packages include a drinks reception and all-inclusive beer, wine and soft drinks all night.
