Oasis Events: Top 5 inspiring party picks

The team at Oasis Events have been busy designing and planning Christmas Parties for private clients this month. They have taken a few minutes out over a mulled wine and a mince pie to choose their Top 5 picks from the world of events to inspire us with 2019 party styles and themes that are happening right now:

A little night fever

The 70s are all the rage this party season as we approach a year of 40th birthday parties for the last of the generation born in the 70s. Think LED Disco Dance Floors and 70s Flashmobs to raise your party pitch to the next level.

Shine on

Silver and Glitter – always a winner at this time of year ,being brought beautifully to life by Cotswolds business owner and style icon @jadehollandcooper in her latest collection and at own birthday party , featured on her Instagram feed and by girl about town @cotswoldprgirl

Go natural

Natural floral displays of every kind are having a bit of a revival, and what better way to make a statement outside your home or venue – or even a temporary party structure.

Here florists bring shimmery, glistening wintery flora to dress an exciting new event venue, Georgian country house @thorpemanor in Oxfordshire for its first winter wedding.

And here are the event dressing super heroes and award winning London florists @earlyhoursltd doing their things for:

Diwali at @brigadiersldn

and for @caramelgrouplondon, a natural looking festive makeover

Not Christmas-related but worth a shout out under the heading of natural even dressing is event florist Fiona Perry Flowers - based in Moreton in Marsh in Gloucestershire - who is pioneering the campaign to stop using floral foam and using only natural materials to put together epic installations and displays nevertheless – you can follow her on @fionaperryflowers and have a look at #nofloralfoam

Exciting canapes 

The inimitable Love bites ladies do it in style all year round but pull out all the stops to make your canapes memorable at Christmas! Check out @lovebitescanapes for delicious treats for your guests.

After a few coupes of champagne most guests at a Christmas party can be found on the dance floor; exciting additions to the DJ experience include an accompanying live act such as…

Sax accompaniment by international saxophonist and extraordinary performer @danblaax

The mirror people - who will not only dance with your guests but allow your guests to dance with reflections of themselves…! 

And who doesn’t LOVE a mirror?! (ball)…!
