The festive season is fast approaching! With research showing that 76% of organisers have their parties all wrapped up at least 3 months in advance (Best Parties Ever, 2018) getting ahead of the game can prevent last-minute planning and potential disappointment.
Here are our top tips for organising your best Christmas celebrations yet:
Organising the office Christmas party doesn’t need to be a stressful undertaking. Selecting a venue with a team of experienced event professionals means that much of the planning work is done for you.
With spaces that offer all-inclusive packages with theming, entertainment and catering all taken care of, your time can be devoted to getting the word out internally and creating a buzz for the festivities, instead of sourcing suppliers and managing logistics.
Travel to and from the Christmas party venue can be a conundrum for your guests. Securing a venue with optimal public transport links and ample parking will help ease these concerns in advance, whilst those with accommodation onsite can provide a relaxing option for guests travelling further distances. Holiday Inn London - Wembley offers 336 comfortable bedrooms with preferential rates for event bookings so your guests can party the night away before returning safely to a cosy room nearby.
Onto the main event - the food! Food usually plays a big factor when the quality of an event or its ‘rebookability’ for the following year is being judged or considered. Welcoming your guests with a glass of bubbles and canapés can help set the tone for the night ahead, whilst keeping everyone satisfied as the party begins.
To truly treat your employees, a formal sit-down meal could be in order with multiple courses of delicious dishes. For more informal or creative companies, maybe a buffet is more your style where guests can go freestyle with a selection of tempting options.
Dietary requirements should also be well managed. Holiday Inn London - Wembley is well placed to cater for a wide range of allergies and requirements, providing tasty meals for everyone. Don’t forget to send out dietary requirement messages to all attendees well in advance though!

I was really impressed and even surprised how great this hotel was. It is located next to Wembley and it is 5-7 minutes to walk from the subway station Wembley Park. Rooms are very clean, the bed was simply fantastic. The breakfast is far above traditional breakfasts in midrange price British hotels. I will definitely stay there again when I am going to be in London.
We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed our stay. We were looking for decent hotel in London and although a wee bit outside the center of London, the rail/tube links to Wembley makes this hotel easily accessible to central London (30 min train journey). We booked executive room (£134) which was large, with great view of Wembley stadium. Service from staff was very good with food and drink reasonable for London.
The welcome was friendly and helpful. Room on 3rd floor very clean and fresh. Twin beds as requested. Very comfortable. The temperature of room was constant with no stuffy feel.
Great choice for breakfast. This is hotel is good value for money considering location.
This hotel was absolutely great. The food and everything far exceeded my expectations. The room was very comfortable and very clean. The staff were extraordinarily professional and provided excellent service. They were very accommodating and made my stay a very pleasant and rewarding one.
Handy for train station and bus routes, and it had all amenities that you could reasonably require. The room itself was good and I slept well that night. I would gladly stay again.
Good value stopover with the city easily reached by the Metropolitan Line. Team here are always welcoming. Comfortable and clean room on the 9th floor and the air con much appreciated on a scorcher of a day outside.
Wonderful hotel room, very good price, staff were lovely and friendly. Saying how busy it was after the summertime ball the staff were friendly and on hand to help. Would recommend to anyone who wants a place to stay visiting Wembley stadium.
Stayed here for the game at the stadium which is right next to hotel. Beds comfy staff are friendly the breakfast is buffet all you can eat. Diana on reception was really polite and helpful. Would stay here again.
The friendly, knowledgeable and helpful staff and a VERY comfortable bed makes this hotel an excellent choice every time, especially when you intend attending events at Wembley or shopping in the designer outlets.
First would like to say how helpful and friendly Mario at the Reception desk was made checking in easy and welcoming. The room we were allocated was excellent wanted to take the bed home with me. Cleanliness was excellent and had everything you need for a one night stay.
