Christmas Packages: Long Term Hire
With the event industry on a slow recovery, why not look ahead and get ready for Christmas…
2020 has been a year of uncertainty for the events industry. However, with restrictions easing, signs of life coming back to the events field. Perhaps by Christmas, we will be back to some sense of normality. We all know the demand is there, companies and individuals alike are all keen to shake off the isolation of lockdown and party! Venues have started to assess their options for Christmas and have even began taking tentative bookings. Things may look a little different, less attendees, table service as standard, and one-way walking systems put in place. The important element here is to keep spirits lifted and to deliver a party that guests can relish.
The lead up to Christmas has always been a hectic one for us here at Table Art. Bookings through July and August come thick and fast. By September/ October the Warehouse is production line of order preparation. November/ December sees our team up and down the country installing and derigging centrepieces. Obviously, this year so far has been vastly different. We have taken the time to reassess the way we do things. This blog looks at a new Christmas Package implementation, where we have streamlined the ordering process for long term hires.
Well worth a read if you want to make the end of 2020 a blow out celebration!
How Does It Work?
The concept here is based on the demand for long term hire. Commonly in effect over the Christmas period, this is perfect for venues hosting a series of Christmas parties through November- December. There is a growing trend to set a theme annually and sell tables throughout a six-week period. Venues direct their sales to companies and individuals looking to have a celebration before Christmas. Long gone are the day of awkward Christmas Parties organised in the office. Now it’s a fantastically simple process of locating a local venue offering Christmas packages and booking a date and set of tables to suit your needs. These packages include dining, drinks, entertainment, and dancing- what more can you want?! No painful organisation, everything is done for you.
With Venues focussing on this style of booking, there is a demand for exciting themes year on year. Last year saw a surge in circus themed parties thanks to the Greatest Showman Film. Previously there was a huge interest in our Dream Circus Concept, thanks to the trend set by the Brewery Venue. We at Table Art are masters at event styling and have developed a multitude of themes for this very purpose. Ordinarily we would speak to a client early in the year, take their brief and work on a package to suit. What we have now done is simplify that process even more. We have put together a dedicated ‘Christmas Package’ page directed at the Long-term hire market. In that page you will find all the themes highlighted and when selected, you get the details of what each theme can offer and how the various packages work.
Having simplified the ordering process, we hope that venues will be better able to access our services. We encourage you to explore that page and get a real sense of what we offer.
Here we have highted a select few of the themed packages we offer. Take a look at our dedictaed page to see the full range.
The Greatest Showman Package
|Concept: The Greatest Showman is a colossus of an event theme that shows no sign of slowing down. It’s no wonder that you want to use this theme for your next event! We have taken all the hard work out of planning by putting together a dynamic range of packages to dress your event.|
The Great Gatsby Package
|Concept: Inspired by the decadent soirees of the 1920’s, throw a party that would make Great Gatsby blush! With scenes straight from the pages of the iconic novel, we have everything you need for your Art Deco styled Christmas Party. Opulent Tiffany Lamps set a warm glow to every table with our led panels making a fabulous photo backdrop.|
The Steampunk Package
|Concept: A reimagined past that is a collision of old and new world. A Victorian aesthetic meets new age industrial chic. Steampunk is quickly becoming a go to trend for events. A fantastically unique look, it makes for a great motif that can be carried through every aspect of the event. We offer an unrivalled collection of industrial centrepieces and props which makes us the go to company when hosting a steampunk party.|
The Modern Christmas Package
|Concept: A sleek and contemporary approach to styling your Christmas Party. In what can be a season of excess and garishness, this is a clean cut look that looks fantastic in blue and white hues. Step away from the ordinary and choose Table Art to dress your Christmas Party. With the latest event technology at our disposal, we can provide a selection of centrepieces and props that will set your event ahead of the competition.|
Two key trends have bubbled up with us this year. The first being an interest in mixing themes to get something dynamic and unique. That is certainly something you can do here. If you like a couple of the themes, then select your favourite elements and we can happily work on a bespoke quotation to suit your needs.
The Second big trend we have found is an interest in a more custom style. Perhaps your venue has a strong sense of brand that you want to bring into the Christmas Parties. We offer bespoke table centres and props so again, simply get in touch with your ideas. The design studio then works on some preliminary sketches and follow that up with a detailed quotation.
We can create Christmas Hire packages that are as unique as your venue is.
It is fair to say that 2020 has started poorly. The Events Industry took a huge pause and as a group, we are all desperate to get it back to its feet. Optimism is key to this, with a touch of caution. Perhaps you aren’t ready to make a booking for Christmas but now is certainly the time to make an initial enquiry. Contact our team and we can work on some options for you to consider. Better to be prepared than rush to find something in the November.
Our team are ready and waiting to take your enquiry.
