Table Centrepiece And Venue Decoration Ideas For Christmas Parties And Events


With the Christmas period fast approaching it is coming up to one of our busiest times of year.  Many businesses like to hold a Christmas party to thank their staff for all their hard work over the year and many have awards nights.  Charity events are also really popular and we have decorated venues for a number of those events including recently the Candlelighters Charity Awards as well as the Bone Cancer Trust Awards and the Wigley Group who have an amazing charity sports related auction each year.  We also decorated the venue for the FFM Summer Swing event in Manchester which is a huge event and raises a fantastic amount for charity each year.  Themed events are also hugely popular and we have centrepieces to fit almost any themed event. Here are some ideas and photos of previous events.



Our LED illuminated crystal trees are ideal for christmas.  They stand 1.2 metres tall and are illuminated with bright white LED uplighters.  The trees are covered in hundreds of tiny crystal beads and we also wrap the trunck with even more crystals.  Here is a photo of crsytal trees that we set up at Alton Towers for an event for Vaultex.  There are many more photos on our crystal trees page.

Our crystal globes are also very versatile and suitable for christmas parties and events.  The crystal globe can be used as a low table centrepiece and placed directly on the table or can be placed on top of martini glasses and then illuminated from below for a taller LED centrepiece. We were recently asked to supply the Candlelighters Awards Event in Leeds with 40 of these centrepieces illuminated with pink LED lighting for the evening.  Here is a photo from that event and more photos from that event can be seen on our LED Centrepieces page.

Our illuminated ostrich feather centrepieces are an ever popular item and the white ones are popular for Christmas and winter wonderland themed events.  The feathers are usually set up in tall lily vases and then illuminated but can also be set up in martini glasses for the same theme or for James Bond type events.  We also have many different colours of feather and these have been very popular this year for Circus and Greatest Showman themed events. Our pink, orange, blue, red and yellow feathers have made several appearances around the country including Alton Towers and the Botanical Gardens in Birmingham and the ever popular Chesford Grange Hotel in Warwickshire.  Here is a photo of our white ostrich feathers set up in martini glasses and illuminated with black chair covers and white sashes that we also set up for the event. This was a christmas party for Vivergo Fuels in Hull.  See our ostrich feathers page for loads more photos and ideas.

Our tall martini glass centrepieces are also a good solution for many events and are extremely versatile.  They are tall enough so that everyone can be see around the table which is something we are always asked about.  For awards events or themed events such as Glitterball or Strictly themed events then the mirror balls are perfect and sit nicely on top of the martini vase.  We set these up for the Bone Cancer Trust Ball in Birmingham as they had a glitterball themed charity event.  We illuminated the martini vases with blue LED lighting and they went down really well.  Our crystal globes shown earlier in this article also look lovely on top of the martini vases and we have some 007 golden guns that we had specially made for us that also are fantastic for James Bond themed events.  For a more simple look we can just fill them with gel balls and illuminate them in different colours to match your colour scheme.

Don't forget the balloons of course!  There are so many now to choose from and we can supply most of them!  Some of the latest balloons are really incredible.  We can now suply confetti filled giant balloons in almost any colour or amix of your chosen colours.  These can simply be floor standing or put in the middle of large round tables.  We can also add company logos to these giant 3ft balloons and they also come in many solid colours. The new bubble balloons are also really good.  We can put small balloons inside each one or one normal size latex balloon. They are 24" and com either in clear or with a pattern around such as white hearts, white stars and a multi coloured confetti print.  They stay completely clear and do not oxidise like latex balloons and will float for ages.  We have had one floating in the office for 4 weeks now!  Please contact us for prices on these balloons.  Here is a photo showing two confetti filled 3ft balloons on top of a pair of columns with some bubble balloons on the tables.  This was for a corporate event recently for Cooperative Childcare at their event in Stratford upon Avon.

We also have many other centrepieces such as crystal chandeliers, moonballs, crystal candleabras and bubble ball bowls and will shortly be adding new illuminated star centrepieces to our list of illuminated table centrepieces.  There will be photos available of these after they have been used at another yearly corporate event that will be held at Whittlebury Park in Northamptonshire.  We will be ading photos to the LED Centrepieces page or you can email us if you would us to send you a photo.  Other themes for christmas and that are also popular year round include Great Gatsby where our feathers or crystal chandeliers are ideal and also fire and ice themes where we have previously set up our bubble ball bowls and lily vases with glitter twigs. Here is a photo from our fire and ice themed event.  We are also hoping to add some new silk flame centrepieces very shortly that flicker and are extremely realistic whilst being fireproof!  Talking of fire resistant our crystal candleabras are also supplied with real wax LED candles suitable for all venues.
