There are a lot of essential aspects that go into planning a memorable holiday party.
From picking the right venue to choosing an appropriate theme to create a festive, inviting atmosphere, everything plays a well-defined role when it comes to planning a memorable event.
However, one of the most important is the holiday party entertainment. A Christmas party is a perfect occasion to celebrate your team’s achievements and create precious memories – all in a magical setting.
And to orchestrate that magical setting, you will need the right, artistic touch.
Keep reading to learn more about how to choose the perfect entertainment to take your party to the next level.
1. Make Sure the Entertainment Complements Your Theme
Always take your theme into account when choosing the entertainment to make sure the two are in line. This will elevate your event and create a more immersive experience for your guests making a memorable event.
For example, say you’ve chosen A “Roaring 20’s” theme to ring in a new year.
In this case, you are booking a swinging jazz band such as The Gatsby Gang is the perfect way to add to the experience and design a setting that transports your guests to the Jazz Age.
Tip: If you’re unsure of what type of Christmas party entertainment would go best with your theme, consider working with an entertainment agency for guidance and advice.
2. Think about the Mood You Want to Set
Entertainment can help you set the tone of your event, so think about the overall vibe which you want to convey.
For example, if you want to create a chill, relaxed atmosphere which is still festive, upbeat holiday-inspired cocktail music is a safe bet.
However, if you want your party to be vibrant and high-energy, a live band such as The Valley Cats may be a better fit – especially if your goal is to get (and keep) guests on the dance floor.
And if you want your party to “scream” elegance and high-class, you can’t go wrong with choosing a group like String Angels to delights your guests with an interactive electric violin show.
Choosing the right tunes is one of the easiest ways to set the mood you want at your event, so be sure to take this aspect into account when browsing for holiday party entertainment.
3. Consider Surprising Your Guests for a Memorable Event
A Christmas party should be full of excitement, so consider adding an element of surprise into the mix. You can achieve that by being bold with your choice of entertainment.
Pick an unconventional act which your guests won’t expect to make your party truly memorable.
For example, picture this at your party:
A famous entertainer from the Czech Republic is introduced, and he starts belting out a knockout song from the ’70s.
Your guests think he’s a singer, but then he starts moving through the audience to choose three “unassuming” volunteers. Then, he makes a shocking announcement: those three volunteers from the audience are about to be hypnotized.
But what none of your guests know is that two of the three volunteers are, in fact, part of the act.
What follows is surprise entertainment at its finest, all engineered as part of a creative act called Hypno Twist.
