The Joys of Christmas!

Christmas is said to be the most magical time of the year and naturally so are any events at Christmas time! Here at First Choice Conference & Events, we are the venue-finding experts. We know from experience that venues can transform over Christmas – turning sometimes plain interiors into a winter wonderland or magical grotto. Whether it’s a magnificent Christmas tree, a twinkling star-lit backdrop or a fake snow machine, Christmas theming really can make a venue extra special and magical.

A Christmas Venue Transformation

Christmas 2019 saw the lobby of Claridge’s in London transform into a frosted forest. The display featured a magical Christmas train and a breath-taking golden tree dressed with fairy lights and gingerbread stiletto shoes. The tree was topped with a gold-leaf crown-  upscaling the usual ‘cherry on the cake!’. The unveiling of the 2019 tree heralded the beginning of Christmas in the UK’s capital and acted as an inspiration catalyst for event organisers. Regardless of the captivating Christmas décor that Claridge’s always boasts, the hotel is iconic all year round as a luxury 5-star establishment. Claridge’s is the perfect venue for private dinners, board meetings and master classes (all of which team FCCE can book for you!)

FCCE’s Christmas Party

For our own Christmas party this year, we ventured to the splendid Cheltenham Town Hall which had been transformed from the already spectacular grand Regency venue into a German market wonderland. We were welcomed by a magnificent Christmas tree with white lights and ball balls so sparkly they lit up the room. From the mulled wine drinks reception, to the festive dinner, the post-dinner Oompah band entertainment to the Christmas Sleigh photo prop, a celebratory festive night was enjoyed by all!
