Felici Events Presents Three Holiday Parties

Holiday Party Ideas

As we quickly approach the holiday season, Felici Events brings you ideas for your private or corporate party!

Inspired by Biz Bash: The Holiday Issue we share three seasonal holiday themes sure to please your guests!

Classic Holiday

Christmas Table

Take out your ornaments and red candles! Make your holiday parties with classic themes like the nutcracker or holiday movies and use traditional decorations to bring the joy of the season! Hang up lights, wreaths, and trees, feel free to add a pine cone or two in there. For food, you can make appetizers based off dinners such as a turkey cranberry crostini, chicken kebabs or pizza bites in traditional holiday shapes. Be sure to decorate your table with a classic gingerbread house!

Winter Wonderland

Winter Wonderland is a modern theme that looks elegant and transforms your venue into an entirely different place! With Disney's "Frozen" and ice being all the rage, having a winter wonderland themed party can be the perfect theme for your holiday party! Decorate with snowflakes, crystals, blue lights, crystals and silver decor.  Be sure to have a hot cocoa bar to warm your guests up!

Offbeat Bash

Many modern holiday parties are saying no to the traditional holiday themed parties and going for a more offbeat theme like a masquerade ball or as Biz Bash demonstrates, a circus theme.  Another theme idea could be a Brother's Grimm theme with Once Upon a Time, Grimm, and Disney's upcoming film, Into the Woods serving as inspiration. There's so many possibilities with this theme, guests can come dressed as their favorite fairy tale characters and the ideas for decorations are endless!

Take inspiration from Brother's Grimm fairy tales for centerpieces such as a single rose or a candelabra!

Feel free to use a specific fairy tale or just combine them all to make an enchanted venue! Have some caramelized apples or Alice in Wonderland cake for dessert! Be sure to checkout Cody's Cocktails inspired by fairy tale creatures that are sure to be remembered at your holiday party! This one below is called "Maleficent" and contains black vodka, grape schnapps, and apple pucker!

Custom invitations can be designed for any upcoming wedding, anniversary, or birthday party. Unique invitations are a nice addition to photos and other special keepsakes. Our event planner can help you find the perfect solution for your specific invitation needs. In this article, a 90th birthday party is our example to help illustrate the process and to give suggestions for how you might choose to design your special invitations.

Time will never stand still, and those moments that bring us such joy become memories in an instant. To capture such a moment and record it forever is truly monumental. – Joshua Atticks, Wedding Photographer

 

Tips from an Event Planner on Custom Invitations

Collect example images of what you want. Pinterest is a great starting point. If you are not comfortable on the computer, you can simply pick up a few of your favorite magazines and cut out images that inspire you.

In our example, the designer suggested four different photos for the invitation, and the best one was chosen by the event planner, Zohe Felici.

Once the tone and vision have been set, the next step is to work with the design itself. A designer will combine the information about the event with the graphics. Event invitations include basic information such as the event’s name, date, time, location, and RSVP. In our example, the designer suggested four different photos for the invitation, and the best one was chosen by the event planner, Zohe Felici.

The final step is to review and adjust until it’s perfect. This might include changing the font, removing or adding a few words, and playing with the color choices. It is not uncommon to go back and forth two or three times to get everything right.

When you are working with an event planner, it’s possible for them to coordinate your special invitations because they will cohesively brand a full theme for your event, including all of its important information, such as the venue and guest list.  If you have any questions, or are interested in having Felici Events design custom invitations for your upcoming celebration, please contact us.
