After two years of muted gatherings, 2022 is the year we all come back together for a festive season to remember and to celebrate, we have created the ultimate guide to throwing an all-out Christmas party.
Choosing Your Theme
For many people, this will be their first festive get-together for two years so there might be an added pressure to get this right. Of course, you could stick to tradition by venturing down the Christmas jumper avenue, however, if you do decide on a theme, ensure that it reflects the personality of the group. There are many different routes to explore, so perhaps create a poll for people to vote, allowing the most popular to triumph. From Bohemian wear to Hollywood glam, the blank canvas at Knightor provides a rustic setting that can be styled to suit any theme.
Choosing Your Venue
With so many destinations offering a similar service, it can be quite overwhelming when deciding to host your Christmas party. The location, the atmosphere and the aesthetic are just a few things to consider then trying to select the most suitable option. For corporate businesses, it could be tied into the ethos of your brand and how the venue aligns with your values. Knightor’s central location, nestled a stone’s throw from the Eden Project, ensures easy access from all corners of the county. The atmosphere and aesthetic go hand-in-hand at the winery, as the rustic setting promotes a laid-back and relaxing approach.
Christmas Food & Drink
Quite possibly the most important aspect of the festive season (in our opinion), everyone loves a Christmas spread. Whether that is a buffet style or in the form of a more formal sit down dinner, selecting somewhere that provides food will more than likely be required during your celebration. The kitchen team at Knightor have curated a three-course menu especially for the festive season. Designed to leave a lasting impression, the bespoke menu uses the finest local produce which will be fused together with a mix of herbs from the winery garden. If you simply wish to toast the season, perhaps start the celebration with a wine tasting with a member of the wine-making team at the winery shop.
Private Hire or Join with Other Groups
For larger groups, you may look at exclusive hire venues so that you can control all variables and ensure that the celebration is tailored to suit your requirements. On the other hand, what better way to network or meet new people than over a few drinks around a Christmas tree! Knightor provides the option of both scenarios. Private hire will allow you to dress the venue how you wish and select the entertainment that will enhance the experience of your group, or leave everything in the capable hands of our events team to create a memorable evening alongside multiple celebrations.
Selecting your Entertainment
You want to host a memorable event for your group and selecting the right entertainment can be an integral part of that. Many venues will have either live music performances or a selection of festive favourties playing in the background during their dedicated party dates, however for a private affair, you may want something a little different. Whether that is an activity on the grounds in the lead up to an evening of frivolity or perhaps a specific performer on the night, the team at Knightor will be on hand to help create a memorable occasion.
