Event Spotlight: Boston Holiday Party at Royale

Winter 2014 was a great winter for holiday parties, and the snowball spectacular at Royale was definitely one of our favorites.

The Royale evening was a multi-act, multilevel affair with dining, entertainment and festive décor throughout the entire venue. As per the snowball theme, we turned Royale into a true winter wonderland—there was no escaping the cool, consistent and cohesive event décor, which blended seamlessly into the evening’s entertainment and culinary creations.

The Opening Act

As guests walked down the snowy-white carpet, which was lined with realistic-looking rocks and LED trees and other North Woods-like natural décor, they passed a vintage sleigh and a few scattered reindeer as they entered the club.

Carolers welcomed the entrants to a night of wintery fun.

The snowy forest hosted the client’s slow-motion photography station, large snowflakes covered the dance floor, and a lighted Yeti stood in the background.

In contrast to the stark white of the main floor décor, there were natural décor elements, wooden accents and even a human tree walking around, branches in the air, greeting and interacting with guests.

Seating took the form of gorgeous all-white lounge furniture with highboy dining tables and clear stools—adding shimmery practicality and a place for guests to congregate and eat.

Act I

The Royale stage housed the gaming center, including an Alpine snowboard simulator and other winter carnival games provided by the client.

Our staff kicked off the interactive event by offering passed hors d’oeuvres throughout the first act.

As guests settled into the scene of a frozen wood scene, they sipped cocktails and watched as the carolers moved onto the dance floor to serenade them with a classic holiday cocktail music performance.

Act II

Act II welcomed our staff, who served the short-plate restaurant experience, opened the winter savory pie station, began baking the crispy flatbreads and offered the international rice bar.

Drinking and feasting turned into dancing as the DJ began to play lively music, and the lights were dropped for a more inviting atmosphere.

The Closing Act

As dancing continued into the night, we rolled out two large sleighs filled with our signature dessert items and led them throughout the venue. The “restaurant” portion of the dinner service was transformed into a liquid nitrogen experience, which was one of the most interactive and successful elements of the entire party.
