Is It Too Early for Christmas Party Planning?

Is It Too Early for Christmas Party Planning?
Event Planning Advice | 03-09-2019 | Posted By Mia Williams

Mentioning the word Christmas shouldn’t be seen as a bad thing as we can officially say the summer is now behind us!

Delving into our statistics here at Sunshine Events, we can see that 32.4% of the Christmas events we’re hired for are booked right now in September.

You may be wondering, "why so early?" 

Early Christmas party planning can give you an advantage and we’ll explain why: 

Ensure Availability

It's no secret that the closer we get to Christmas, the smaller the window of opportunity gets to book and hire exactly what you want for your event.  

At Sunshine Events, we are no different; right up to Christmas, your Fun Experts will always go that extra mile to ensure we can bring the fun to your event, but you can save yourself any unnecessary stress by booking with us as early as possible. 

Choice of Equipment

Nothing says Christmas like the excitement of Christmas stalls and fun festivities. Whether it's our Rodeo Reindeer, Festive Side Stalls, or even our Christmas themed Photo Booth, we have a wide variety of FUNtastic equipment just waiting to be hired for your event!

The earlier you book with The Fun Experts, the sooner we can help you design and create the ultimate bespoke package for your Christmas event. This makes sure that perfect piece of equipment for your event will always be available to create a FUNtastic experience for your guests.

Ensure Attendance

Being British, there are three things that we collectively enjoy:, queuing, a cup of tea and, of course, a well-executed plan! 

There's nothing worse than being invited to the coolest Christmas event only to find out you already have prior engagements because the invitation was sent out too late. 

And the feeling is the same when booking Christmas party entertainment. Booking you FUNtastic Christmas antics in advance will allow you to make sure everyone is informed with plenty of time to spare, from employees to investors, or customers.


Build the Hype Train

Ensuring guests attend your event should be your main priority when it comes to the planning stage. However, it's pretty hard to get people excited or talking about it if the event is only a matter of days away.

Booking ahead and being an early bird lets you relax a little. You now have the time to build up all of the excitement and hype that will surround your event. 

The power of digital marketing can be one of the most effective, and often free, forms of advertising when you're looking to grow your attendance list - when done in advance.

Get Everyone Involved

It's no secret that, when something big is going on we want to be part of the action. What better way of getting people involved than by making them part of the planning process when planning a company Christmas event? 


Whether it's John from Marketing being in charge of picking the colour scheme for the event or Sophie from HR planning the taxi logistics, collectively booking your Christmas event is the best way of getting people to oversee those roles.


Additionally, the more time everyone has between booking and the big day, the more creativity will flow and allow for out-of-the-box ideas to transform your event into an unforgettable day.

Finally, when it comes to your Christmas event, The Fun Experts will always go above and beyond to make sure your event is the best it can possibly be! 

So whether it's a Christmas office party, a Corporate awards evening, or a Christmas Fun Day, make sure you book with Sunshine Events to make it the ultimate FUNtastic experience.
