Have you ever thought about having your Christmas party in January? The most wonderful time of the year is just a jingle bell away. Perhaps you’ve always thought that there’s snow place like December for the annual work’s shindig? But Christmas parties in January are becoming the not so best kept secrets of the season, for many gift-wrapped reasons.
So, all isn’t lost if you’ve got your tinsel in a tangle this year and left your Christmas party planning too late. A Christmas party in January might be a stellar solution to beat the holiday hustle and bustle.
How? Why? Here’s just a few of the outstanding benefits that are making the Christmas party in January wildly popular.
A Christmas Party in January Gives You More Bangs Per Buck
Tightening the purse strings? A Christmas party in January is a savvy way to make everyone very merry at a fraction of the cost you’d expect to pay in December. In addition, there’s a better chance of securing availability with the best venues and event suppliers in town that you might not have stood a cat in hell’s chance of booking in December.
What’s more, you’ll still be spoilt for choice by the good / better / best event hire ranges to suit different price points, for example –
- Basic round tables and trestle tables that you can dress up with eye-catching cloths and table décor
- Top of the range ornate Chiavari chairs Chiavari chairs in a stunning choice of black, gold, lime or silver washed finish, and red, blue, gold, black, ivory, moss, steel and purple chair pads.
When is a Christmas Party in January Much More than a Belated Christmas Party?
Combining a Christmas party in January provides the perfect platform for casting a glance backwards and focusing forwards. It’s a win:win an all-in-one company conference and / or a reward and recognition event to acknowledge who’s been naughty or nice.
“Christmas is a time to look back on the year just gone and reflect. This is fine, of course”, said Jonathan Spall at Silk Street entertainment agency. “However, shifting the focus of the event to the New Year means that the message becomes about looking forward and having a great year ahead.”
Just don’t forget that you’re mixing pleasure with business. So, prepare to put on your disco dancing shoes and burn the dancefloor once the day’s work is done.
An Inclusive Christmas-less Christmas Party
Traditional, fun-filled, sparkling Christmas parties are heart-warming and magical. But the baubles and bells of the season – not to mention the sheer busy-ness – aren’t for everybody. For these reasons, putting your party on hold till the new year means you can still enjoy a night to remember, without a Christmas tree or Santa hat in sight!
In addition, it gives you the opportunity to choose whatever theme you like – or no theme at all, enabling you to send winter wishes to all of your team members, regardless of any cultural differences.
Going for a cocktail making competition in the office? Then you’ll need martini, margarita and pina colada glasses for shaking it till you make it.
A cracker-less buffet or dinner dance at a fabulous venue? Bring your tables to life with some fancy coloured glassware to match your theme, or table linen in your company colours, rather than the reds, greens and golds associated with the festive season.
