With the festive season only around the corner, thoughts are turning to parties and all things Christmassy. Here at OGGS, the House Manager David Smith and I started working on our Christmas decorations back in January, so it will be great to see all of the planning out into this come to fruition. Make sure you keep an eye out for pictures of our 2018 Christmas tree on social media (see last year’s atmospheric blue display above)!
I absolutely love this season. Whether it’s wandering around the Christmas Market at the South Bank, glass of mulled wine in hand and a mince pie in the other, or heading to Liberty to buy decorations (well, just one bauble) for my tree, this is probably my favourite time of the year.
And on a professional level, I really enjoy working with clients on their Christmas parties and advising on all the elements for a successful event. We all know that food and drinks are key, but don’t forget to consider the entertainment too. We have just started working with a superb entertainment company, ‘Blank Canvas’. Run by the very charismatic and personable, Kevin Tasker, Blank Canvas are a contemporary entertainment service company who can provide all manner of acts, from excellent DJs that will keep the dance floor full to brilliant aerial acts that have your guests enthralled all evening.
Now, if you’d excuse me, I’m off to create the perfect Christmas playlist for the office.
