Christmas party
The best party that we ever held was a Christmas party. It was held a few years ago on Friday 18th December – the day that the children broke up from school. We started the party at 6pm and allowed the kids to come along as well. We put together a big station with a couple of cocktails to get the party in a swing.

We served dry martinis (James Bond style- shaken, not stirred) in classic cocktail glasses with olives. A dry martini is a combination of gin and martini bianco (the green bottle) with an ice cube. We also served champagne cocktails. For champagne cocktails add a sugar cube into the bottom of a champagne glass. Add a small amount of brandy until the sugar cube has taken up all of the brandy. Top up with champagne or sparkling wine (we used Cremant de Loire) and a string of bubbles will come off the sugar cube.

We live in a commuter village so we encouraged the office workers to call in after they got off the train. We prepared a large number of trays of finger food – mostly bought ready prepared from the supermarket, so all we had to do was to serve it out and just pop the trays in the oven to heat it up.

It got everyone into the Christmas mood and went off with a great swing for the weekend. – Pam, near Reading, UK.

  1. The best party we have been to this year was an outdoor lunch at a friend’s house in August.

  2. The office Christmas Prty was a great one last year. The company took over most of a nice hotel.

    A real treat. Unfortunately budgets have been a bit tighter this year, and it wasn’t quite the same.

  3. The best party i’ve ever been to was at a friends house. We had a Eurovision party. Before the party we drew a country to represent, We had to provide food from that country, I should have done a goat recipe but I went fof sure footed sheep instead. We had beer tasting quiz and cheese tasting. We all put a £1 in the kitty half of which went to a charity and the winning team got the other half. And if your chosen country won you hoasted next years party.

  7. The best party that we have been to was the Trinity College Ball in Oxfordshire.

    It was lively and filled with a variety of entertainment and amusement options. All you needed was a green wrist pass which gave you access to all areas. They hired Big Sand steel band to perform for the arrival of guests for about 1.5 hours and many people started dancing in a conga line as they heard the steel band.

    As soon as we had finished, there were other bands in different marquees, Disco in the main building, numerous food and drink options and also a mini fun fair.

    It was the place to be!

  13. The best party we had was a Halloe’en Party we had – having returned from working
    in Nairobi for a few years.
    My son and his fiancee came as ghosts and took hours to wrap toilet roll (white) all over each other and they looked most effective!
    Our Hallowe’en Parties were well-known in Nairobi

  18. I am thinking of what to do and have read all these ideas.
    I want everybody to dress in the theme of 007.
    Now were all looking sharp, i want an ice sculpture that my guests can have vodka shots from,
    with my best hits playing in the background, i want friends to be loose and free ready for my photographer to take some pictures, with which they are asked to place in a 40th birthday book to remind me of my special day, with their personal comments.Then come the amazing speeches from my best friends then my brother, followed by my amazing speech. Now its time for the thing that tops off the party to remember your great life and something you will remind you for all of it..I know Do you? Ideas.!
