On December 15, 2015, Event Solutions had the pleasure of producing a Southern California-based entertainment company’s annual holiday party, and boy, was it a “singing” success! Read on to see why…
Transforming the Warehouse
Before guests arrived, our professional team set up the event space from top to bottom; tables, chairs, a guest lounge area, lighting, and décor to accommodate over 300 attendees quickly filled the event space, transforming it from empty office space into a truly magical winter wonderland for guests. Our client’s extra office space in Burbank provided the perfect backdrop to create a sleek and modern ambiance.
After Winter Wonderland Theme Design
The luxe lounge area, situated directly adjacent to the dining tables, provided an opportunity for guests to mingle and chat informally, away from the crowd.
This gorgeous backdrop set the tone for the rest of the evening’s winter paradise; meanwhile, our DJ and entertainment manager geared up for a night of grooving on the 1s and 2s. Guests mingled about, feeling the good vibes and getting into the holiday spirit.
A Deliciously Good Time
Our client opted for a buffet instead of the more traditional seated dinner, which blended perfectly with the event’s modern, industrial feel. Guests chose from delicious entrée and hors-d’oeuvres options, including juicy prime cut tri-tip, fresh pasta primavera, flavorful garlic mashed potatoes, and rich fettuccine pasta. For dessert, attendees enjoyed our ice cream sundae bar, with virtually hundreds of customizable options for the ultimate cold sweet treat.
For those imbibing in adult beverages, premium beer and wine tickets were provided to keep the party going. If you’re considering providing a bar for guests at your next company holiday party, consider offering drink tickets for guests. It’s an easy, affordable and comfortable solution to maintain a level of fun AND professionalism within your social environment.
Read My Lips!
As the night progressed, guests were introduced to perhaps the most invigorating portion of the evening: The Official Lip Sync Contest!
Attendees had the opportunity to test their expert lip syncing skills live on-stage to a song clip of their choice; some even used provided props to create a truly memorable show.
Lights, Sound, Design, Oh My!
Here, a duo with rather ravishing hairdos lip sync Extreme’s “More Than Words” to perfection.
Others approached the challenge with a more all-inclusive mentality.
The crowd fell in love with the performances, the outrageous costumes, the fun, giddy atmosphere, and most of all, the unforgettable memories.
An excellent holiday party is one where no detail goes overlooked – this particular party was no exception. The buffet-style menu kept guests well-fed all night, while the bar with drink tickets allowed guests to enjoy premium beverages throughout the evening. Guests also enjoyed a professional photo booth to capture memories from the event, using fun props like feather boas, signs and oversized glasses provided by the Event Solutions team. Meanwhile, some guests cozied up to our winter wonderland-inspired décor for their own custom “photoshoot”.
“Wonder” in Wonderland
Overall, this party honestly put the “wonder” in “winter wonderland”! With a wide array of delicious food options, titillating entertainment, high-energy music, and a sprinkling of mischief, guests were transported from the office to a magical winter paradise filled with welcome surprises.
