Posted by: White Lion

It may be July, but now is the time to start thinking about planning your Christmas party nights in Suffolk

Whether it’s with friends, family or colleagues, the highly-anticipated Christmas party is a highlight on anyone’s festive calendar. As with any big date, planning is required to steady the ship, get everyone on board and ensure that all attending will have the best time possible.

We know a thing or two planning events (especially over Christmas!), and can take a lot of the stress off your hands when it comes to arranging your festive occasion. Here are our top tips for planning your Christmas party with us:

1. Invitations
Make sure you have a number of guests in mind and find out who is interested in coming. A cap on numbers is recommended to avoid any problems with late confirmations and interest.
2. Have a budget
Ensure that you have a cost per head in mind and make sure everyone is comfortable with it.
3. Book early
Avoid disappointment and make sure you book early!
4. Dress code
Set an appropriate dress code for all attending guests to avoid any confusion.
5. Extra touches
Think about the extra touches that can make the occasion that bit more special. Crackers on your table, or games for guests? Here at The White Lion all of our Christmas party nights have decorations galore...
6. Plan your transport
Arranging your transport beforehand is advised and takes a huge weight off your guests’ shoulders. Again, book early to avoid disappointment.
7. Create a table plan
Plan where everyone is sitting, which will help to maintain a smooth flow to the evening when it comes to dining.
8. Take people’s food orders
Send out the menus and take people’s orders as soon as you can, let us do the rest.
9. Enjoy it!
Once all has been planned, sit back, relax and enjoy your night! Let us look after you.
