Creating a Magical Christmas Event

June 8, 2013

Whilst it may seem strange to start thinking about Christmas when the weather is so hot outside many people in the events industry are beginning to plan their Christmas parties now. Organising a magical Christmas/winter event takes a lot of preparation and hard work so it’s always best to start early. At Rio Lounge we love helping to create parties that have a real “wow” factor so here is our guide to creating an enchanted winter wonderland party for your staff or clients this Christmas.

Firstly, find the venue for your Christmas party or winter event. There are an amazing array of places that you can now hold events in, ranging from football stadiums to museums and art galleries. If you are organising a more traditional event you might want to look at what local stately homes or historic buildings can offer you. However if you want something a bit different you might want to think outside the box and book an event somewhere unusual like an aquarium, a party bus or even on the London Eye! One thing is for certain though – all the best venues get booked up quickly so you will need to make sure you get your reservation in fast!

Secondly, how to create a magical theme for your winter party? At this time of year black tie events are always popular and guests enjoy the opportunity to get dressed up. A brilliant style for Christmas is a winter wonderland theme that really conveys the wonder of Christmas to your guests. Whether you are thanking your staff for all their hard work or showing your gratitude to loyal clients, you will want to make your party really special and here’s where Rio Lounge can help with some sensational furniture hire. You can hire the white chair for a sumptuous dining area and hire white sofas for that fabulous winter-wonderland theme!

We are experts in styling venues and love transforming the plainest room or marquee into a spectacular festive occasion. To create a winter wonderland you want lots of sparkle so one of our large chandeliers would look amazing as a centrepiece with the light reflecting off it. Our mirrored cube tables can also add sparkle to your event with the crisp mirrors adding an icy feel to your party.

Rattan Furniture for a contemporary Christmas party…

You will also want to create a relaxed area where guests can sit and chat. If you want to create a more contemporary look for your Christmas party, our rattan furniture hire selection can help to add a bit of chilled out glamour to the occassion and we would recommend our ever popular snow white Marrakesh Club Sofa Set. This smart seating is both comfortable and stylish and always looks fabulous!

As it’s bound to be cold you don’t want your guests to feel chilly so make sure you hire in some of our Athena patio heaters for the outside terrace. As a final touch you might want to light up the dark winter’s evenings with a selection of our lanterns to give a magical glow to the night.

We’ve been getting inspired for Winter by checking out the latest themes and ideas on Pinterest so why not have a look at our fantastic theme boards on the Rio Lounge page to help you plan your perfect Christmas party.
