If you're hosting a Christmas party for your colleagues or friends, you've first got to finalise the function venue, catering and theme. Since the party is being hosted around Christmas, it's probably natural that you have a Christmas theme. While you've done a great bit of planning around the food and theme, you'll also want to plan the décor perfectly to throw the ultimate party –– a party that your guests will remember for a long time. Here are some imaginative ideas to help you plan the décor for Christmas themed party at a function venue.
Create a Christmas Photo Booth
Everyone loves the memories surrounding the Christmas holidays, so why not create an instant photo booth with tons of Christmas-like memorabilia for your guests to enjoy? With fun props, unlimited prints and tons of wacky poses, your guests will be laughing fondly at their photo booth memories for many years. You can plan a Christmas tree backdrop with Christmas gifts, reindeers, sleighs, Santa hats, elf caps, Christmas decorations, Santa beards and snowflakes for props. This amazing decorative idea is sure to get tons of visitors over the course of the party.
Put Up a Christmas Tree For Guests To Place Their Gifts Under
No Christmas party is complete without a Christmas tree in the room, so you must add a decorated Christmas tree for your party. Whether you're working with the decoration team at function venues or planning on your own, this is a great idea for your guests to have somewhere to place their gifts over the course of the evening –– especially if you are playing the Secret Santa game with colleagues or friends. Let everyone's secret Santa unfold under the Christmas tree for a few laughs and enjoyable moments. The Christmas tree is also the perfect place to store prizes for the games planned over the course of the party.
Add Christmas Table Runners with Pops of Colour
The classic green and red colours of Christmas are enough to bring a room to life, including function venues. Christmas-inspired table runners with images of snowmen, Christmas trees, Santa, mistletoes and stars will create pops of colour over plain tables to give the entire room a traditionally festive feel –– setting the mood for an unforgettable Christmas party. Finish off the table décor with bright red and green flower arrangements for a true festive feel.
Bring in the Feel of Snowfall
Christmas in Australia is warm, so you can add a thrilling twist to your Christmas party by replicating the look of snowfall using fishing lines, cotton balls and needles. You simply need to thread the needle with thin fishing lines and poke them into a myriad of cotton balls. Hang them from the function venue ceilings to replicate the snowfall look. You can create this feel throughout the room for a winter-like Christmas finish.
Most function venues are open to creative décor ideas, but you'll want to check with them in advance to ensure that you follow their policies conscientiously.
