Make sure that they detail, in writing, exactly what service they will be providing so you know exactly what you are going to get.
Professional Christmas party organisers provide a service for companies wishing to arrange a corporate Christmas party as well as for individuals seeking festive party entertainment. Generally speaking, their services are employed for corporate Xmas events.
Popular themes for Christmas parties include Brazilian Carnival, Gangster, Glam 70s, 80s Rocking Good Xmas, Abba and the perennial favourite, Casino.
Venues ideally suited for Christmas parties include nightclubs and hotels, providing, as they do, a blank canvas that is ideal for theming of such events.
Food other than the ubiquitous roast turkey, Christmas pudding and all the trimmings is becoming increasingly popular as clients seek less traditional, more interesting menus for the Christmas party.
No organised Christmas party is complete without entertainment and popular forms of entertainment at such events include discos, bands, dance acts, casinos and magicians.
Budgeting For A Christmas Party
The cost of an organised Christmas party will naturally depend on factors such as the event venue, the event theme, the choice of catering, whether the drinks are all to be provided by the company or individual hosting the event as well as the entertainment chosen. A ballpark price per head for a professionally organised Christmas party would, however, be between £65 to £100 per head plus VAT.
Book Early To Avoid Disappointment!
Christmas party organisers provide a popular service to the UK events industry and their services are much in demand. It is advisable to book a organised Christmas party at the beginning of the calendar year, preferably in January, to avoid disappointment although it is often still possible to arrange a festive party as late as August/early September.
Why Use An Organiser?
Assigning the task of arranging your festive event to a professional Christmas party organiser allows you to cut out the headache of coordinating the whole event and delegate everything to the professionals. Xmas party organisers have ready made ideas and experience in dealing with venues and all the other ancillary constituents that go to make the perfect Christmas party. In the long run, companies and individuals who utilise the services of a Christmas party organiser often find that by doing so they save a lot of time, money and hassle.
To ensure that the Christmas party organiser is a reputable company it is always advisable to obtain testimonials from other companies or individuals to whom they have provided their service. It is also a sensible idea to call the venue that they suggest to check their credentials and possibly, for true peace of mind, run a check on their accounts.
The Do's & Don'ts
The do's and don'ts of dealing with Christmas party organisers are based on common sense. Make sure that they detail, in writing, exactly what service they will be providing so you know exactly what you are going to get. Insist that the party organiser shows you photographs of how the event will look, don't let them simply describe it to you. Ideally, visit the Christmas party organisers that you are considering employing to see them in action. Once you are satisfied that they are up to the job, trust them, they know what they are doing!.
