22 December 2015
The end of the year has come around so quickly and it has been such a busy month! There have been well over 200 events this month and we still have some to go yet as we begin the New Years celebrations!
On the first weekend of December, we sent Radio 1 DJ Scott Mills all the way to Jersey to DJ for a huge corporate Christmas party. The guests loved him and it was such a great night!
We had quite a lot of themed parties this month, including a brilliant ‘James Bond’ themed corporate party held at Pennyhill Park, which had entertainment including a helicopter simulator, Segway’s and laser clay shooting! Another party theme was the ‘The Rat Pack’, so naturally we sent along our singing waiters, and also our brilliant rat pack singer, Nigel Smith! We also supplied casino tables and some gorgeous magenta uplighters, which made the room look beautiful.
We had a great event night at Ascot Racecourse, as we went along to provide a Horse Racing Night for around 400 people. Plenty of ‘bets’ were put on and the winning team won a huge bottle of champagne! It was a great event and such a fun evening.
Team building was as popular as ever, and we had some of our favourite team building events booked in throughout the month. We had a cocktail making experience at The Runnymede, a wine tasting workshop at Savill Court Hotel and a festive Bake Off challenge where the delegates made mince pies and a Christmas themed showstopper. Considering the short space of time they were given, the food looked and tasted amazing!
There have been far too many festive events for us to tell you about all of them but we will share some of our highlights. Our Michael Bublé tribute act was predictably busy throughout the festive season and performed at eight parties within a few weeks!
We helped organise a brilliant Christmas party at the Park Plaza Riverbank in London, where the guests were entertained by Keith ‘The Thief’ Charnley, a magician and a wonderful pianist. They also had casino tables, a photo booth and Miniboots.
We had seven nights of Christmas parties at The Aviator Hotel in Farnborough, where we provided our casino tables, paparazzi photographers and a red carpet to make the guests feel like stars! We also provided entertainment to children at Wentworth Golf Club, during the members Christmas dinners. They were kept occupied with activities such as balloon modelling and plate spinning, and they had a craft table where they could make their own Christmas cards and write letters to Santa!
Shortly before Christmas we were involved with an amazing Christmas party held at the Four Seasons Hotel in Hampshire. Entertainment included a digital graffiti wall, an iPad caricaturist, an iPad magician and a close up magician. The guests were played into dinner by a beautiful string quartet and were treated to a disco afterwards!
Towards the end of the month we were involved with a corporate Christmas party which was held at Manchester United Football Club; we provided X Factor contestant Jamie Archer, who performed at the party. He was a great hit with the guests and really knows how to get the crowd going!
It has been an extremely busy and exciting year for Firebird Events as we turned 15 and we have been involved in close to 1,700 events! We have had the pleasure of working at some amazing venues and have really enjoyed providing events for repeat and new clients alike - we are looking forward to doing it all over again next year!!!
