The Holidays are Over but Winter is still here and "Winter Wonderland" will without a doubt ALWAYS be one of the most popular themes for Corporate Holiday Parties, Weddings and Events.
We have seen it a million times...but how can you reinvent the wheel - or snowball if you will...How can you add something new to elevate this classic event theme?
Below are our 3 Top Tips to Transform and Elevate ANY Winter Themed Event
Top Tip #1) Entertainment
"Plastic Ice" Skaters - No Ice? No problem!
These professional figure skaters set up shop with a portable artificial ice rink (sizes customized to fit any event space).
Works great for indoor events wanting to add a little figure skating winter magic!
If you prefer not to keep them contained, they can trade in their traditional ice blades and roll right onto any dance floor with custom rolling figure skates!
Living Snow Globe - A classic winter icon comes to life!
Imagine you are at a sit-down dinner. The lights dim, the music starts and a life size snow globe rolls onto the dance floor. "Snow" floats around the bubble casing as a Cirque du Soleil style acrobat performs incredible feats of contortion and hand-balancing inside of it!
Whether you choose to utilize this awe-inspiring visual accent as a featured act or perhaps as a photo op. to greet guests and roll around during cocktail hour, the avalanche of photos and impressed guests is sure to be a win.
Top Tip #2) Drinks and Libations
Ice Luge - Update that Ice Sculpture!
In this age of constant engagement, every aspect of an event is practically expected to have an interactive element - Enter: The Ice Luge...
Ice Sculptures come to life with a system of channels to transform the generic open bar experience. Whether you prefer the functional classic look to get the job done or you want to take that 5 foot ornate ice sculpture up a few notches, the ice luge will indubitably be a shivering chunk of fun times and frosty drinks!
Aerial Champagne Fairies - Bubbly poured from up above!
What is more awesome than entering an event and being served a bubbly beverage from an aerialist dangling upside down above your head? - Nothing.
There is no better way to greet guests and attendees! Whether serving champagne or wine for a cocktail hour, Shots or Beer for a less conservative crowd or frozen "mock-tails" (Sweet 16, Quinceañera, Bar/Bat Mitzvah) - No One can resist libations cascading from the sky into their glass!
The experience is completed with themed costuming and voila! This will, hands down, be the most memorable part of the party. It is a game changer and your guests/clients will be praising you for long after!
Top Tip #3) Decor
Frosty Florals - Recreate any Venue
A NYC nightclub is completely transformed into a winter wonderland for an epic private party. Of course the magic of lighting is essential, and the crisp white dance floor echoes a sheet of ice, but the most striking aspect of the decor comes from the floral team.
Trees with frosted branches and frosty twig centerpieces create a classic wintery ambiance to envy!
Living Decor Enhancements - Interactive, Fantastic and Photo Worthy!
Decor doesn't stop at lighting, florals and linens, oh no. As we've already confirmed, everything is better when it comes alive and becomes an interactive element of an event.
A Living White Carpet (as opposed to the traditional Red) greets guests and serves as a fun photo op as a Snowflake Champagne Dress strolls around delivering welcome cocktails to arriving guests!
Winter is embodied in these costumed characters that are a part of the scenery as much as they are a part of the experience:
While traditional event decor serves as the photographic background, these wintery live enhancements add volumes to the event aesthetic. They become the subject of photos to be shared virally on social media and beyond!
