A Christmas Carol Celebration
The theme, A Christmas Carol, was chosen by our client for the annual Holiday Staff Party because he loved the movie and thought that it was a classic traditional Christmas story that exhibited compassion and forgiveness as Scrooge discovers the true meaning of Christmas. In the movie, Ebenezer Scrooge, is an old miser who is visited by the ghost of his former business partner Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future. When three ghosts take penny-pinching Scrooge on an eye-opening journey, he discovers the true meaning of Christmas – but he must act on it before it’s too late.
Much of the movie illustrates the shortcomings of Scrooge, but in the end, he is transformed into a kinder, gentler man. This transformation towards kindness was the message from the movie that our client wanted to focus on. We decided to design & build our own European Village to support the setting in the movie. Our client wanted the event to focus on the traditional aspects of Christmas and we wove them into our seating plan, décor design, menu planning, activities and entertainment. Each decision was carefully scrutinized to ensure that it was in line with the festive generosity of the spirit of Christmas.
