It’s that time of year again when the pressure is on to reward your team’s hard work with a fun and entertaining Christmas party! Forget the standard lunch in a nearby restaurant, this year we want to help you think outside the box and come up with a unique and memorable party that will keep your team talking well after the last piece of mistletoe has been taken down from the doorway.
The world is your oyster when it comes to entertaining at the Sofitel Sydney Wentworth. Our events and banqueting teams are on hand to help you fulfill your vision, no matter what your theme.
Here are some fun and unique Christmas party ideas to help get you started.
Let’s not pretend we do Christmas like the rest of the world! It’s hot in Australia so why not embrace it and throw a Hawaiian Luau party? Our Garden Court Restaurant terrace would be the ideal spot to indulge in some tropical fun. Think grass skirts, palm trees and pineapples! Get your team to wear their most colourful Hawaiian shirts, and we’ll welcome them with Tiki cocktails and Polynesian themed cuisine.
Or maybe you DO want to pretend we actually have snow and ice and all things nice at Christmas time. Our magnifique Wentworth Ballroom is the perfect venue to hide away from the rest of the world and pretend that “baby, it’s cold outside”. With capacity for up to 580 people for a seated banquet and 1100 for a cocktail party, there’s enough room for everyone. Bring on the twinkling fairy lights, ice luges… and ugly Christmas sweaters!
Cosplay is hotter than ever these days, with Oz Comic-con filling the International Convention Centre every year with pop culture fans. So why not ride the trend wave and host your own Cosplay party? Our Wentworth Ballroom is equipped with advanced Audio Visual facilities and our in-house team can help you with screening anime movies and playing some movie-themed tunes. Throw in some fun costumes and some Japanese themed food & drink and you’ve got a party your team are guaranteed to remember.
Who says Santa’s workshop is just for elves? A Santa’s workshop themed event is the perfect way to combine celebrating with team building. Set up different elf stations where your teams can complete challenges together. At 165 square meters, our Adelaide Room has plenty of space for workshop stations and even room in the corner for Santa’s grotto. And after a few of our Christmas-themed cocktails, everyone will want their photo taken with the jolly old elf!
Around the World
Did you know that Christmas is celebrated in more than 160 countries? With each nation bringing its own unique twist to the festive season, combining some of these different traditions can be a fun way to celebrate. The bright and airy Garden Court Restaurant has capacity for 140 guests (seated) or 300 (cocktail). Ask your guests to dress in their most elaborate international costume and let our banqueting team impress you with a smorgasbord of sumptuous international dishes and drinks.
