If your stress levels are redder than Rudolph’s nose, chances are you’ve been tasked with planning this year’s Christmas party. From aunt Sharon drinking the bar dry to that one friend who just needs to make a toast, you’ve got plenty on your mind – so leave it to our elves to handle the styling fun.
Let’s face it, you’ve probably spent a solid week pushing a trolley around with flyaway hair and a parking-induced snarl on your face (isn’t Christmas shopping fun?), so there’s no better time of year to get dolled up for a night.
Treat your friends and family to a tasteful party in one of Brisbane’s glittering function venues. From dining rooms draped in chandeliers to grand ballrooms, this is your chance to go festive to the fullest.
Raise a glass of bubbly as your guests unwrap their very own gift, prefacing a night of canapés, cocktails, and a chance for dad to ditch the sandals-and-socks routine.
We’re all in agreement – Christmas calories don’t count, right? With all the shopping, wrapping, and Christmas tree decorating, you’ve earned a Santa-sized feasting session. Ditch the milk and cookies for a festive lunch or dinner at Darling & Co.
We all remember the year Mum burned the turkey and cousin Sandra complained that the trimmings weren’t paleo-organic-gluten-free (AKA the potato salad meltdown of ’05). Skip the hassle, the summer heat, and the pending family feud with our festive menu.
Trust us, with flavours like turkey terrine, Mooloolaba prawn linguini, and frozen Christmas pudding, you’ll want to drag us under the mistletoe.
Tea up a break from the shopping list with a festive high tea at one of Brisbane’s best cafes. With tables dressed in bright colours and Christmas crackers, you’ll spend an afternoon indulging in scones, ribbon sandwiches, and Christmas goodies.
Organise a Secret Santa session over tea (or some cheeky bubbly) as you escape the heat and the crowds with a lavish Christmas party.
Want your Christmas party to be the brie all and end all of the social season? Swap the ham and turkey for an elegant wine and cheese night, either at home or in an airy Brisbane bistro.
Splurge on some nice bottles of wine to go with your artisan cheeseboard and say cheese to a fuss-free Christmas party.
Don’t mess with the classics. Rock the Weber this Christmas with a backyard celebration for the whole family to enjoy. Great for families (and an easy option for little ones), the classic Aussie Christmas is packed with endless options.
From delivered catering to a potluck of plates from every guest, celebrations don’t come easier (and neither do the post-party hangovers).
