Top Tips for Throwing the Finest Festive Fiesta!

The festive period is a time for generosity, and what better way to treat your family, your employees, (or yourself!) than a scrumptious festive feast here at Bishopstrow? As one of the top hotels in Wiltshire, we offer two delicious festive menus which you can view here. But food alone isn’t going to give you the Christmas party of the year, so we’ve put together a little guide to throwing one of the best Christmas parties in Wiltshire!

Festive is fun!

It’s important to keep things relaxed and entertaining, especially if you’re throwing a work do. Having a fun festive dress code (ugly Christmas jumpers anyone?), or even something as little as personalised place settings will all help to keep those festive spirits high. And they won’t be difficult to maintain once the wine arrives…

Make it tasty…

Ok, so food might not be everything, but it is pretty important! Our festive dinner menu at Bishopstrow’s exquisite Mulberry Restaurant offers such delights as ‘Beetroot Cured Fillet of Scottish Salmon, Lilliput Caper & Fennel Salad with Watercress Pesto’ and ‘Orange and Clove Glazed Breast of Duck, Pomme Fondant, Spiced Plum, Celeriac and Cavolo Nero’. Um, yes please!

Step outside your office

This year at Bishopstrow, we are offering a Mixed Company Festive Party Night on 15th and 22nd December. This will give you and your colleagues a chance to not only enjoy each other’s company, but the company of lots of other merrymakers too! Complete with a three course meal from our award-winning chef and music from out in-house DJ, it promises to be an excellent night of festive fun. Don’t forget your Santa hat!

Secret Santa

Everyone loves getting presents but buying everyone a gift can get costly. So why not organise a Secret Santa? Names from a hat and every gets a present- fair and fun! It’s probably best to set a price range too so that everybody gets something of equal value. If Linda from accounting gets new earrings but Mark from HR only gets a bag of Doritos, there’s going to be trouble…!

Safe and sound

Hosting your Christmas party at a hotel not only makes it accessible for taxis etc., but also enables people to stay if need be. There’s usually a lot of ‘merriment’ at festive events, so making sure everyone gets to bed safely is key! Bishopstrow is nice and close to Bath so you’re not too far away from civilisation, but far enough that you still get the decadence and seclusion of a country house hotel.
