Roving and canapé style events are still popular options for Christmas and end of year celebrations, with unique, alternative takes on traditional favourites.

Decadently styled grazing and food stations have also featured prominently this year and will be favoured alternatives to traditional sit-down events, particularly for end of year functions.

Niche experiences as part of an event, such as dress up themes or unique photo walls, continue to play a key role at events, particularly with our ever increasing love for sharing personal experiences via social media.

What colours, textures and features will be popular event style choices this Christmas?

Fairly neutral and monochrome colour palettes will feature more prominently this festive season. Think shades of white to grey, with hints of dark green and a touch of metallic, or varying shades of greens paired with earthy browns. Authentic, natural textures will feature, incorporating a touch of naturistic elements such as feathers, shells, dried florals and branches, matched with modern, elegant plateware and props. Keeping with the 2017 minimalistic trend, stand-out features, such as unique styled centrepieces or decorative elements will feature as stand-alone pieces.

What do you think makes a Christmas party really special?

Good food and excellent company are a must for any great party, but let’s not underestimate the importance of ambience at an event! Creating an overall sensory experience through styling the setting to suit the event, plays a key role defining the mood of the function. From beautiful plateware and place cards, to tailored seating and cutlery, the finer details play a crucial part in creating lasting, memorable experiences.
