Boutique Hotelier’s Eamonn Crowe suggests value for money is likely to be a top-of-mind factor when you’re arranging this year’s company Christmas party. That doesn’t mean cheap and in certain cases uncheerful. Conversely, he suggests your boat might be floated by options that are: “…cost effective, while still having the wow factor.”
So, whether your priorities are easy access and sustainability, or flashing the cash on epic festive fayre, here’s just a few wildly popular trends that are already pulling in the punters ahead of the 2023 party season…
- Think Pink – Barbie continues to represent a finger on the pulse of popular culture. So, go all-in with pink everything, from décor and dress code, to canapés and cocktails. And top it all off with a life-sized Barbie box for creating those Instagrammable moments.
- Conscious Christmas – Shortlist venues that source locally produced food and re-usable or compostable napkins. Ditch traditional crackers stuffed with paper hats and plastic tat in favour of re-usable cloth versions containing artisanal chocolates or miniature short from a local small business. And time your party right, so your people can confidently use public transport to get home safely.
- A Self-Care Christmas – Transform your office in to a spa for the day, including indulgent facial treatments, massages, meditation, and yoga. And when it comes to eating, drinking and being merry, think Christmassy vegan ‘charcuterie’ platters, cheeseboards and mouthwatering smoothies in place of roast potatoes and Christmas pud.
