Temporary Ice Rink
A way to entertain large crowds and also retain the magic of Christmas is with a temporary ice rink, particularly if it can be in the open air to give an authentic atmosphere. These can be adjusted to suit your event space and don’t always have to be made out of real ice (for those with a warmer Christmas) as synthetic rinks are increasing in popularity.

Santa’s grotto is a traditional element for a Christmas party but if you don’t fancy the queues or hiring the real thing then you can recreate the effects! This example is an impressive display of balloon art that has everything from the candy cane lights to elves, trees and magical backdrops.

Take inspiration from the season in your centerpieces, like in this simple example that uses burlap material combined with natural winter forest elements such as the holly, berries and pinecones. A simple floating candle can also create impressive lighting effects.
