What an exciting couple of weeks it has been for Believe and with the Christmas season over for another year, we’ve had some tome to reflect on the festive, party season! After a year of working tirelessly to choose the ideal venue to host our elegant winter wonderland theme, choosing caterers who would provide an outstandingly delicious three-course meal and entertainers who would leave our guests astounded, the doors to Believe finally opened in December 2017!
Guests were welcomed into our tranquil Ski Lodge with a glass of bubbly on arrival and were encouraged to step out onto our ‘balcony’ for a snowy, wintery photograph with props that made the photo look less like a backdrop and more like a wintery, balcony view! Whilst the finishing touches were happening in the main room, and our snow globe performers were warming up and preparing to get into position, our fabulous magician worked the crowd and kept all guests entertained before they could enter the main room.
When the performers were in place, it was time to unveil the curtain from the reception area into the main dining area revealing our magical, elegant theme (it’s safe to say the ceiling was the ‘star’ of the show!). Guests found their seats and started tucking into their first course of the evening whilst our Tumbellina performers performed their first ambient set of the night, inside their snow globe. Once the starters had been finished and cleared, Tumbellina then performed their mesmerising main act inside the snow globe and finished to applauses and cheers from all tables!
The delicious second and third course were then served by the amazing Pieminister featuring some of their famous Christmas-themed pies served with mash and veg and Christmassy desserts with a choice of Mince Pie Fool or their Yule Log. Whilst guests tucked in, there were special treats in between from Grant our fabulous magician performing individual tricks to each table and Tumbellina as they performed their third and final ambient set of the evening which involved a lot of interaction with the guests.
Once all courses were finished, it was time to get the party started! Phill our talented DJ kicked things off by announcing the winning table for our Christmas Quiz that was already on each table as guests arrived, once the champagne was awarded to the winners, Phill started the festivities the best way he knew how, by playing Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want For Christmas’ and this was just the start of many Christmas (and non-Christmas) classics that were played throughout the remaining duration of the evening.
It was an absolute pleasure hosting Believe Christmas Parties this year in such a beautiful location. A big thank you to everyone who was involved and of course to all of our lovely guests who chose to celebrate Christmas with us this year.
