Christmas is around the corner. For the average person, this conjures up visions of presents, holidays, fun and excitement. For event professionals, this time means planning and executing unique and successful events to exceed client’s expectations… A little overwhelming to say the least.
Coming up with unique Christmas event ideas can be difficult. After all, most themes have been done before. You want your client to delight in your work, emotionally connect with the components of the evening and just become lost in the magic of it all… Any ideas?
“Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.” ~Norman Vincent Peale
A sophisticated Christmas themed event would create a feeling of warmth and happiness. Visions of Christmas in New York City come to mind. Here are a few little ideas to get the creative juices flowing:
1/ Arouse the Senses
The Christmas lead-up in New York City is 2nd to none. The entire city smells like Cinnamon and Candy canes. Create this atmosphere in your venue by placing Cinnamon and Peppermint scented table decorations around the room.
2/ Capture the Excitement
For me, the highlight of a New York Christmas is seeing the Radio City Rockettes show. They are the ultimate in both glamour and tradition at this time of year. Why not book a show inspired by these sophisticated ladies?
3/ Give the Magic
We can all remember the excitement of Christmas as a child. A simple wrapped package under the tree created a mystery and delight that isn’t easily forgotten well into adulthood. Re-capture the enjoyment by creating your own special tree at the centre of the venue with beautiful wrapped surprises underneath for your guests.
The possibilities are endless. Christmas never gets old, never gets boring and always arouses a feeling of happiness and anticipation. A Christmas event, planned with sophistication in mind, could be the beautiful unique idea you’ve been looking for. A perfect evening. Miracles happen – it is Christmas after all…
