As the seasons change, the warmth of summer making way for the chilly nip of autumn, our
thoughts turn to the festive season ahead. With the family Christmas sorted, one of the main
questions on your mind is what to do this New Year’s Eve.
One of the biggest problems with New Year’s Eve is the huge cost of going out – pubs get
crowded while the price of drinks seems to increase every year, and events such as cabaret
and theatre can be prohibitively expensive.
One solution is to throw a big party for all your friends and family using marquee hire for
New Year’s Eve.
Many people incorrectly assume that marquee hire is only good for the warmer months, but
modern marquees are a fantastic option for winter too. State-of-the-art winter marquees are
waterproof and windproof, making concerns about wind, rain and snow a thing of the past.
With thermostat-controlled heaters and hard wooden flooring to raise you above the damp,
cold floor you can party all night long – without your coat, and without your heels sticking in
A Winter Wonderland
Hiring a marquee is a fantastic option for a party, because you have a blank canvas to
decorate – no more worrying over whether your preferred colour scheme matches the curtains
of your venue.
It’s easy to transform your marquee into a true winter wonderland, with minimal cost. Avoid
bright summer colours, and opt for winter white, blended with glamorous silver or gold.
Suspend paper lanterns from the ceiling and twist fairy lights around the tables and doorframe
for a little extra sparkle.
Pick Your Party
Now that you have your New Year’s Eve venue sorted and decorated, you can decide what
type of party you want to throw. For a sophisticated New Year’s Eve, set the room with white
tables and chairs, decorated with sparkly snowflakes, and throw a magnificent feast, adding
in a bar and chillout area for afterwards.
Alternatively, a party venue may be more your style so set your marquee up as a huge
dancehall so you can dance the night away. Don’t forget to include a bar area, a chillout zone
for when your guests need to rest their weary feet, and a buffet table with nibbles to keep
everyone sustained for the long night ahead.
Hiring a marquee for your New Year’s Eve is the perfect way to celebrate with your friends
and family, without breaking the bank. Food and drink will be much cheaper, you won’t have
to queue for hours to get to the bar, and best of all, there’s no need for a babysitter!
