Testimonials "When we ﬁrst contacted Oﬃce Christmas, we told them we wanted to wow the employees, and that's just what they did! From the start the whole team had a friendly and professional approach and couldn't do enough for us. The theming was amazing and I could not believe the diﬀerence from when I ﬁrst saw the venue back in February 2010.
"The website was a good idea and kept the admin down to a minimum. People were able to look at information of the Christmas Party and make their menu choices without having to send constant emails. This saved a lot of time.
"What stood out the most to me was the organisation of the event and the staﬀ. Everything ran exactly to plan so that in the end I didn't even have to do much, and got to enjoy the party just as much as everyone else (which was a ﬁrst - usually I am running around like a headless chicken.)
