One day interactive workshop with lunch


Be ahead of the game this festive season with our seasonal party planning short course. Together we'll explore the latest event trends and theming to make some truly memorable 'jolly holiday' experiences. Looking at futurologist trends and classic favourites, we'll formulate event design concept boards culminating in a hands-on decor design session. So whether you're planning a festive dinner party, cocktail soiree or themed venue nights we'll look at what can make your event stand out. This course comes complete with lunch and refreshments throughout the day.
