Hosting the Perfect Christmas Eve Party with Hometainment

It can be a Christmas Eve tradition to head down to the pub. But with everyone having the same idea, why not host a memorable event at home this Christmas Eve?

Take your Christmas Eve celebrations to the next level with unique and meaningful experiences. Here are some tips for hosting an unforgettable Christmas Eve soirée for your friends and family…

Incorporate activities 

Traditional parties generally just have drinks, maybe some food and a little music. For an unforgettable Christmas Eve, why not include some interactive activities? Explore your artistic side, learn a new skill, or simply have fun together as you engage in activities that inspire laughter, collaboration, and self-expression. 

Our personal favourite is the HOMETAINMENT Mindfulness and Wine Tasting. Make your annual pub visit more meaningful by sharing stories and bonding through mindfulness.

Take a deep breath and relax with low-sugar natural wines that will have you feeling your best for the big day of cooking and family celebrations. Unique and fulfilling, this is an unforgettable experience for Christmas Eve.

Bring on the live music

HOMETAINMENT has lots of professional musicians for you to choose from to create your perfect ambience. We love our cellists for elevating your event and they are perfect for a sophisticated soirée.

Or how about an Opera singer or a Saxophonist to make it a night to remember?    Remember to keep an eye out for Santa in the sky during your magical evening.

Think outside the box

Why not explore new possibilities and create a Christmas Eve celebration that truly stands out? From exciting themes to creative decorations, why not do something a little different for your event?

If you’re the sort of person who likes to cosy up on Christmas Eve night, our recommendation would be to avoid the traditional evening soirée and host a brunch.

We have the ultimate Private Pizza Experience package that is perfect for adults and kids and will take your event to the next level. 

Have a focus

Adding a main focus to your Christmas Eve party will not only give it direction but also provide your guests with a captivating centrepiece for conversation and connection.

One excellent option is HOMETAINMENT’s Whiskey Tasting, Stories and Cocktails experience. This curated event brings friends together to delve into the fascinating world of whiskey, share stories, and savour and create expertly crafted cocktails.

This unique and unforgettable experience will undoubtedly make this Christmas Eve a standout event that everyone will be talking about long after it's over.

Not into whiskey? The drinks at your party can still be a great talking point for your event. We recommend spiced flavours, red fruits and beautiful garnishes to create cocktails and mocktails that are perfect for a Christmas event.

If you need a helping hand, our mixologists are on hand to make stunning festive drinks and add something a little extra special to your evening.

Whatever your traditions on Christmas Eve, with HOMETAINMENT you can take your festivities to new heights by incorporating unique and immersive experiences.

From the serenity of mindfulness to the indulgence of brunch boards, these experiences will elevate your gathering and create lasting memories.

Cheers to lifelong friendships and unforgettable moments!
