They say that Christmas is the most special time of year, and there are very good reasons for that. After all, this season might represent the best opportunity of the entire year to spend an extended period of time with your family, friends and loved ones.
But as celebratory as the festive season may already feel by its very nature, you may have also considered how you can make it even more so with a little help from the most suitable events venue.
Unfortunately, with Christmas rapidly approaching, you don’t have much time left to determine your most urgent priorities for a celebration venue and pick out the right one. So, here are a few aspects that you will need to think about.
Can you strike the right balance between your heart and your head?
When you are contemplating the venue at which to hold your festive celebration, it can be easy to fall into the trap of thinking you have to choose somewhere that is utterly enchanting but also utterly impractical, or a venue that is easy to reach, but also deeply uninspiring.
You don’t necessarily need to make such a false choice, however, when there are so many venues out there that actually offer the best of both worlds.
You might have imagined, for instance, that a French chateau couldn’t possibly be a practical place to hold a Christmas party, not least given its presumed geographical isolation.
But this isn’t always the case – the delightful Château Bouffémont, for example, may be situated in the heart of the idyllic Montmorency Forest, but it is also a mere 30 kilometres away from the centre of Paris, and 20 minutes from Charles de Gaulle Airport.
When you also consider such characteristics of this French chateau as its refined interior decor, impressive surrounding gardens and diligent team of staff, it shouldn’t surprise you to learn that it is also among the most in-demand wedding locations near Paris.
What venues are offering the best deals right now?
Let’s face it – if you’re seeking a festive celebration venue for this year at such late notice, there’s a strong likelihood that a lot of very fine venues will be trying to tempt you to book a party with them at a reduced price.
It’s therefore well worth keeping a lookout for any venues – perhaps visually impressive ones in unfashionable locations, or those situated in a major town or city but surrounded by strong competition – that may be offering discounts on Christmas celebration bookings right now.
However, we would also urge you to avoid simply plumping for a ‘bargain basement’ or poorly-suited venue on the sole basis of the cut-price deal they may be offering you, as this could prove a false economy.
In any case, you don’t necessarily need to rule out even many of the most prestigious Christmas party venues when you are keeping an eye out for special offers.
The aforementioned Château Bouffémont is a case in point again, with a current festive-season offer that enables you to enjoy the complete luxurious two-night break during December or early January 2019 with your loved ones.
A genuinely great Christmas party venue can be within reach
Be fast in making your reservation, but also firm about what you desire from your chosen Christmas party venue and fair when considering what constitutes the right price, and you can still look forward to a brilliant celebration away from home this Yuletide – even at this late notice.
Don’t forget, too, that it isn’t just the venue that you need to think carefully about. You may therefore also wish to peruse these tips from Eventjuice on how you can organise the most successful company Christmas party.
