Deck Your Halls: Helping Holiday Party Planners with Festive Entertaining Tips

From office parties to open houses, Premier Entertainment shares its festive tips and new Premier Entertainment Holiday Package to help holiday hosts rock around the Christmas tree

With the holiday season only a few weeks away, Nashville-based entertainment company Premier Entertainment is making holiday party planning simple with its new Premier Entertainment Holiday Package and holiday entertaining tips.

“The holiday season can be stressful enough with the end of year obligations and gift shopping, on top of planning a holiday party,” said Jason Middleton, professional DJ and chief executive officer of Premier Entertainment. “We wanted to make it easier for our customers to plan an unforgettable holiday celebration by providing them with the creative direction and expertise they need to pull off a successful event.”

For $1695, the Premier Entertainment Holiday Package includes a personalized event soundtrack with masters of ceremony services from one of the company’s experienced DJs, a holiday-themed photo booth with an attendant, and a choice of either a winter-themed monogram gobo or festive colored up-lighting. Guests will enjoy four hours of entertainment and audio/visual design as they experience a unique holiday celebration that goes beyond food and beverage.

“The important thing to remember when throwing a successful holiday party is to know who the audience is that you are entertaining,” said Middleton. “From there you can tailor the ambiance to capture the right mood.” Middleton’s three tips for successful holiday entertaining include:

Create the right holiday playlist that covers classic hits and new covers: “As the great Nat King Cole sang in The Christmas Song, make it for kids from one to 92,” said Middleton. “This is a great playlist for audiences of all ages.”

Select the right theme and design for your holiday party: “If you are planning a corporate holiday party and are unsure of what your guests’ beliefs are, you can never go wrong with a winter theme and design,” said Middleton. “Snowflake monograms paired with blue and white up-lighting can transform any space into a winter wonderland.”
Skip the mistletoe and create a photo booth: “Wheatear you are using a state-of-the-art green screen like in the Premier Entertainment Holiday Package or making a DIY one from home, photo booths are a great way to engage with your guests, and are less awkward than standing under the mistletoe,” said Middleton. “Get Creative with wacky props, poses, and themes.”
