*Altert: Disgusting post ahead. I am talking about Christmas Parties in June*.
This week I’ve started working on an annual Christmas Party I do in London, and have started receiving invites to the varies different Christmas events which always come at this time of year. I’m not a Christmas lover, but I don’t hate it. I’m pretty sure I’d rather be on a beach somewhere, but then I’d miss out on the most fun event season, right?! If you’re an event manager, sick of using the same black and gold theme for your Christmas Party, listen up. Here are three different corporate Christmas event themes that you don’t see at every corporate event, every year. I got you.
1. Precious gems
Emerald, Sapphire, and Ruby. I honestly can’t say how much I’m living for this. The colours feel so rich and bold, but classy and elegant. Adding touches of gold gives that extra level of exclusivity. This theme would would beautifully with a mix of textures, depths of colour, and just a little drop of sass.
2. Go Swedish
The Sweeds have got a lot of things right, and Christmas is one of them. They celebrate slightly differently to us, with main celebrations on Christmas Eve, followed by an abundance of traditions. Their natural yet simplistic feel to decor is something which carries over into the Christmas style, and even though it is beautifully minimal, there’s something comfy and homely about it. The best way to create this look is by sticking to natural tones, colours and textures, but adding a hint of deep red in places. Not bright red, they’re a classy people.
3. Summer in Winter
If you want to be the anti-Santa, and I won’t hold it against you, go tropical! Winter is the time of year where we all want to escape the grey skies of London for the bright blue ocean and sangria. So why not make your Christmas party into the holiday you all wish you were on? Put in a Tiki bar, some massive tropical leaves, and you’ve got yourself a party. This one might be a bit brave, but how cool though?!
I hope that those boards have wet your appetite for more… If you want more corporate Christmas event ideas, get in touch. I’d love to hear from you.
