How To Make Your Christmas Party Stand Out

If you want to celebrate Christmas in Wiltshire, we have all the tips you need to make your Christmas party unforgettable.

Christmas is the perfect time to eat, drink and be merry. But in a season where everyone’s party strives to be better than the year before, what can you do to make your Christmas party stand out?

Create unusual invitations

Boring invitations? A thing of the past! Why not create a mini marketing campaign with little reveals in the lead up to your Christmas event? Avoid anything overly festive until November – that way your guests won’t be fed up of Christmas lingo before your big party. Plus, it will generate excitement and get them in the yuletide mood.

Pick an inventive theme

Did you all dress up in Santa hats last year? If you want to make your Christmas party stand out, then why not consider a more inventive theme? Stick with something jolly like candy canes and presents, or go for something a little more outside of the box like ‘dress to impress’ or ‘Great Gatsby.’ Conduct a poll in advance of your party to get a feel for what people would like to try out or go with a theme that is sure to bring a few laughs – ugly Christmas jumpers, Scrooge or celebrities at Christmas can certainly get people’s imaginations working overtime.

Try an unusual location

If some people at your company or your group want to go out for drinks in your local town or city and others want to do something a little more adventurous, why not choose a venue that offers the best of both worlds? If you’re looking for party venues Wiltshire is the perfect location. Conveniently located between Bath and Salisbury just off the M4 and A36, we have four stunning function rooms that can accommodate parties of up to 120 people. When you also include dining options from The Mulberry restaurant you can enjoy all the exclusivity of a high end event without having to compromise on your budget.  

Here at Bishopstrow we understand the importance of great food and drink over the Christmas period, which is why Head Chef, Jon Los, passionately prepares our Festive Dining menus using fresh, locally sourced and free range produce from the surrounding counties as much as possible.
