Christmas is almost here, and what better way to celebrate than with a party? To make sure the event is a great one, a lot of planning is required, and below we will reveal how to host the ideal festive event.
Choose a Venue
The first step is to choose a venue. There are lots of wonderful places for you to host a Christmas party. Private event rooms are available at all Barrio Queen Mexican locations and offer a great choice.
Decorate the Venue
No matter how stunning the venue is you need to decorate it to ensure it has that festive feeling. After all, what is a Christmas party without a Christmas tree and all of the other traditional decorations?
Decide on a theme, and this will help you to choose the right decorations. For example, if you want a traditional festive venue, your colour scheme will be green, gold, and red. You will look for all of the typical Christmas decorations, including holly, wreaths, mistletoe, baubles for the tree, tinsel, and so on.
Another stunning theme is ‘winter wonderland’. This theme consists of white and silver, and icy blue. The aim is to create a beautiful and elegant venue, reminiscent of the North Pole. You can use fake snow, snowflakes, and icicles. This is definitely the type of theme that will take people’s breath away when they enter the venue.
You may prefer a contemporary Christmas theme, which involves the typical festive decorations, but in modern and vibrant colour choices, such as turquoise and fuchsia.
Needless to say, one of the things we all love the most about Christmas is tucking into some delicious food. You will need to ensure there is a good assortment of traditional Christmas grub for your guests to enjoy. However, you may not want to opt for the traditional turkey dinner as the main course. After all, everyone is likely to be cooking this on the 25th, and so you may want to do something slightly different. Luckily, there are so many options with party food catering. It is important to ask your guests if they have any special requirements beforehand, for example, if they are vegetarian or have any allergies you should be aware of.
Games & Activities
Last but not least, consider how you are going to keep your guests entertained. If you are hosting a big party, you may want to consider some live music. However, for those who don’t have such a large budget, there is no need to fret. There are plenty of Christmas games and activities for you all to enjoy. Perhaps you could incorporate ‘Secret Santa’ into the occasion? Each guest will be given a name, in secret, and they have to buy a gift for that person – a small token present. You can give everyone a budget.
So there you have it: the complete guide to throwing a party around the festive season. Of course, if you are doing the whole last-minute thing this year, you will probably need to scale back and just go with whatever is available!
