ICE - Prep with some chill factor
When planning your Christmas cocktail party, decide early on whether or not you want to have a theme. Sometimes themes are absolutely amazing. Guests can dress up in “red and green” or maybe they have to come to the party dressed as their favourite Christmas character. Other times, maybe your cocktail party is intended to be a more sophisticated classy occasion and a theme would not work for your guests.
VODKA - The base
Which venue space in SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium is perfect for setting the scene for your event? Is it Dugong Island, an atrium-like open top display with eagle rays and Australia’s only rescued pair of dugongs on display. Or maybe it’s at Reef Theatre where guests will be astounded by the floor-to-ceiling glass display showcasing schools of Golden Trevally, Sawfish and Leopard sharks. In summer 2016, be among the FIRST to host your cocktail party in SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium’s newest function space, Penguin Expedition. Sip a cocktail as majestic King penguins gaze back at you and Gentoo penguin slip and slide playfully.
LEMONADE - Add something sweet
Treat your guests to a sweet 4 hour beverage and canapés package including a beer, wine or soft drink upon arrival. There’s nothing more magical than enjoying a cocktail whilst walking through SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium at night without the hustle and bustle of the general public. No cocktail party is right without some good music. A DJ will drop some cool beats in the Reef Theatre that will have feet tapping and fins waving.
MINT - Swirl some contrast
The most important details about your Christmas cocktail party have been taken care of. The creative and fun themes have been decided and your sweet cocktail package has been chosen. Often people forget about simple logistics that your guests will appreciate. Having a cloakroom means that your guests can have a great time without worrying about holding onto their belongings or leaving their coats in places they might forget.
LEMON SLICE - The final flourish
Want to add a little something extra to your Christmas cocktail party? How about a themed photo booth? Having a dedicated area for guests to take photos and receive instant photos is an excellent way to create mementos for guests to keep from your event.
