When the UK division of one of the world’s largest aerospace company, wanted to bid farewell to 2017 in spectacular fashion, guess who they called on? Fizz of course!
Fizz was tasked with finding a venue to remember, and duly provided a shortlist of amazing locations. 2 Temple Place stood out as the perfect combination, complete with a magnificent setting, historical wow factor (former home of Lord Astor, once the world’s richest man), and just to make it easy – excellent transport links.
So why was it so important to get this end-of-year celebration just right?
Our client explained that as an International company with personnel scattered around a wide variety of divisions and locations, plus with disparate skill sets, the end of year presented a unique opportunity for staff to come together as one.
“Having an end-of-year celebration rewards team achievements and creates a unifying experience. The informality of being outside the work environment in a memorable location is a great way to introduce everyone to the wider organisational family,” she said
On a cold December night at beautiful 2 Temple Place, open fires warmed guests as music from a brass section greeted everyone by a stunning Christmas tree.
The evening flowed beautifully as guests enjoyed delicious food and festive drinks in stunning wood-panelled rooms (they have to be seen to be believed!) lit with glistening chandeliers and boasting unbeatable views of the Thames.
For added fun, guests could:
- Take control of a Chinook at the green screen photo corner
- Have their characters revealed by a graphologist (handwriting expert!)
- Have their future told by Meg, tarot card reader and mysterious mystic
- Take a tour around the house and learn more about the Astor family
The various rooms in this magnificent venue lent themselves perfectly to creating corners for quiet conversation, combined with more lively party spaces that included a 19 piece swing band and cocktail bar.
Guests enjoyed eating & drinking mini plates of Canapes & Bowls including a mini Christmas dinner and Christmas cupcakes.
We were told that the event was spectacular: the food great, the staff fabulous, and all-round experience truly awesome.
We believe Lord Astor himself would have approved!
Fizz understands that great Christmas events combine customised hospitality with elements that offer enjoyment for everyone … and must start with the perfect venue.
What kind of experience would you like your guests at your next Christmas Party?
