A Midwinter Christmas may not be an official holiday, but it’s always a great way to warm up the winter months. As June approaches, you might be planning a celebration for your workplace. Or perhaps you want to gather friends and family, especially those who may come from the northern hemisphere and haven’t quite got used to a Kiwi summer Christmas. So, we thought we’d share some ideas to help you plan your event. We can also recommend the perfect midwinter Christmas party venue… Beachside Nelson, of course!
Enjoy a fun, festive event at your favourite midwinter Christmas party venue:
Getting the Numbers Right:
When it comes to planning your midwinter Christmas party know your budget and stick to it. If it’s a work event, you’ll want to consider whether partners are included on the guest list. If your work budget is a little leaner, you could always charge for an employee’s plus one.
Do have a good idea of numbers before you book your venue hire. You don’t want to pay for a space that is too large, nor do you want to feel the squeeze. When you choose Beachside Nelson for your midwinter Christmas party venue, you can choose from several different function rooms. Discover more about the number of guests we can accommodate HERE.
Feeding a Crowd:
Beachside Nelson is the permanent home of Gourmet Catering. Local hospitality aficionado, Carol Shirley, is at the helm of both Beachside and Gourmet Catering. Carol has been serving up innovative food throughout the region for over fifteen years. So, she’s the perfect person to help you serve up a slice of festive cheer at your midwinter bash.
Depending on your budget, we can offer a grazing table, a buffet or a multi-course plated table service menu. Whichever you choose, we can tailor the menu to a festive theme, even in June. Think mouth-watering hot ham with roasties, rounded off with mini pavlovas and Christmas truffles!
Sparkle & Joy:
We are always happy to help you with the decorations when you book your party with us, and we can factor this in when we discuss your budget. We have supplier connections throughout Nelson and beyond.
It’s a midwinter Christmas, so don’t forget your Secret Santa gifts. Another way to keep things festive is to ask your guests to dress to impress; sequins and sparkles can help light up your midwinter Christmas party. You’ll also need some tunes so you can dance the night away. If you’re looking for live music, we can thoroughly recommend popular local duo Dust & Gold.
