How to plan a family friendly Christmas party

Event organisers know the key to a successful party is the preparation, and Christmas is the time of year when parties can be anticipated and enjoyed by all. It makes sense then, to make planning a family friendly Christmas party as easy as possible.

There are many aspects to a Christmas party that guests will remember for a long time after the event, but what are they? Here, we look at the different elements of a party and show you how the ALS Group can help.

What does every Christmas party need?

Picking your venue is usually the first step towards your Christmas party and with this being a particularly busy time of year, it is always recommended to book early. The same should be applied to all the other things on your tick list so your guests have the best experience possible and you are able to secure your preferred date to avoid disappointment.

Party themes

Themed party hire is extremely popular year-round, but particularly during the festive season. For family friendly parties, we offer a children’s Christmas theme party package that includes a children’s disco, themed bouncy castle, fun activities and prizes, plus a visit from Santa himself. Where venue space allows, or for parties where children are older, our Christmas themed party is perfect. Create the perfect ‘White Christmas’ atmosphere with our snow machine hire and treat your guests to a visit to Santa’s grotto. They can have a turn on our popular rodeo reindeer, or they could try their hand at snow boarding on a simulator, the choice is yours and both our Christmas packages can be bespoke created to suit your venue and guest list.  

Event décor hire

Both our dedicated Christmas party packages include décor for your venue, but if you have chosen a non-traditionally festive theme, we offer themed décor packages to complement our party themes. These include casino theme décor, Harry Potter theme décor and a package for The Greatest Showman themed parties.  

Catering services in Lincoln for a Christmas party

Whether you opt for a formal, sit down meal for your guests with a la carte catering or a relaxed buffet experience, the ALS Group can help. Greet guests on their arrival with a choice from our canape menu, followed by a choice of Christmas buffets. A cold Christmas buffet offers a selection of festive sandwiches plus a choice of savoury and salad items and Christmas desserts, while our hot, carvery-style buffet offers a choice of carved meats.

Party entertainment

Of course, a family friendly Christmas party needs entertainment suitable for guests of all ages, and we can provide an array of activities and games that everyone will enjoy. Guests can dance until they drop with our disco hire or karaoke, with experienced DJs in attendance where required. If you need to tailor the entertainment you are offering to suit a wide ranging guest list, we can create a bespoke package just for you, to include any combination of our entertainment items.
