While Christmas in 2020 wasn’t quite the festive experience we all know and love, the signs are there that Christmas 2021 will see a welcome return to the norm, with parties very much back on the agenda. If you want to make up for lost time and put on a festive feat to remember, here are 5 Christmas Party Ideas to get you started!
Blow away the cobwebs with some outdoor activity
We’re all used to sitting in an office, or more recently, working from home – so why not start your party with some outdoor activity, to get the adrenalin going and a bit of healthy competition? Whether it’s clay pigeon shooting or paintballing, or something more relaxing like golf or fishing, an active start to your party can then lead to dinner and drinks, with the winners getting to celebrate their success in style.
You spend a lot of time working with your colleagues – can you tell when someone is lying or bluffing? A murder mystery is a chance to showcase your investigative skills, role play and generally have a good laugh at everyone’s attempts to get into character. Can you work out who dunnit?
Theme it up
To give some structure to your event, create a theme that shapes your evening. Whether it’s a masquerade party or Christmas jumpers galore, choose a theme that can feed through to your menu, your drinks and your music.
Dance like nobody’s watching
If you don’t like the idea of a formal sit down, choose a lighter menu and make it all about the dance floor. At Delamere Manor, guests can live it up in our private nightclub, dictating the music, lighting and dance moves if they want to!
If you’ve made it to the end of the year and you’re all stressed out and exhausted, a high octane, energetic party might not be the right choice. Instead, head in the other direction and make it all about relaxation – book in some masseurs, enjoy a thorough pampering and finish your day with a fantastic meal and drinks, leaving you refreshed and ready to head off to your next Christmas party!
At Delamere Manor, surrounded by rolling hills in the Cheshire countryside, we have a private venue perfect for your corporate event, with a dedicated team on site to help you create a bespoke Christmas party to remember.
