Then keep it going

Snow globes seem to be all the rage lately and the Giant snow globe photo booth is another example of creative technology that makes for wonderful entertainment at your Christmas event.

Santa’s little helpers

For a unique Christmas party edge that will keep everyone amused, hire some dwarf entertainers to dress as Santa’s elves and provide the doorman or concierge service.


Carol away

What’s Christmas time without some good old Christmas carols? Hiring some acapella performers to give your party an authentic atmosphere as your guests arrive. This sets the tone for the evening and gets everyone in the mood as the venue fills up. Everyone loves a good carol and it makes for a fantastic theme to start a conversation and get the festivities started.


Band together

The most sure-fire way to make your Christmas event a raging success is to hire party band that delivers a wow performance to your guests. Party bands can play to any size venue and offer bespoke sets that feature top tracks from timeless artists that everyone will recognise. Get your guests out on the dancefloor and experiencing the end of the year with some fun and excitement!


A DJ saved my life

A party band for your event is a great way to get things going. When they have played their set, then look to hiring a DJ to keep the party going all night long. They don’t need massive amounts of equipment and they can play music from any genre, including the Christmas classics. Make sure you talk to your DJ beforehand if you require requests or a bespoke playlist.


Christmas Paparazzi

Hire your own Paparazzi photographers and have them snap and flash away at your guests as they arrive and settle in. Get them to take the photos of your friends of the dancefloor and the rest of the festivities during the evening, then make the pictures available for download on your company website.

In living colour

Living tables are an amazing way to get your guests talking. Hire them and have them dress in a Christmas or Santa theme, then laden them up with snacks and have them walk around the room and mingle with your guests. They make for fantastic conversation starters.


Bad Santa

Everyone knows Santa to be a cheerful, happy, good guy. So break that stereotype with the Bad Boy Santa. They make for a hilarious alternative to the regular Chris Cringle we see at every Christmas party, so shake it up with a bad boy Santa and watch as they breakdance and entertain your guests!


The final word

Christmas is about fun, giving and goodwill toward others, make sure all your guests are entertained and serviced by hiring a concierge for the evening at your event. This will help everything run smoothly and give you the opportunity to get out there and have some fun instead of worrying if you guests are happy all night.
