Plan your Corporate Christmas Party Now!

Christmas may not seem like it’s fast approaching, but before you know it, it’s going to sneak up on us. Now is the perfect time to start planning a Corporate Christmas Party before that end of year rush hits, so that the lead-up to Christmas is stress-free for a change!

A Watsons Christmas is like no other, with a variety of spaces, offerings and dining styles, which can be tailored specifically to the needs of your company.

Why not take a look down memory lane and have a peak into a few past Watsons Christmas Parties from vastly different companies who had entirely different needs, but were beyond memorable in their own right. Your creative juices are bound to begin flowing, giving you that much needed push to start planning that end of year celebration that you and your colleagues deserve!

Hamptons-esque Cocktail Party:

If you’re looking to execute a seamless party, why not hire the Sunset, Mid-deck and Top Deck space collectively. This gives guests a chance to mingle without restriction and enjoy those million dollar Watsons views from countless angles. Chubb Insurance did this in style, with a white themed cocktail party, which was wonderfully aesthetically-pleasing against our soft white wooden decks, the vibrant turquoise bar in Top Deck and our grand high ceilings in the Sunset Room.

Instead of a sit down event, canapes made sure that guests could freely socialise in a casual environment. A minimalist approach was delivered, with silver ‘Chubb’ balloons, roaming white lanterns and subtle greenery on the tables. The venue was transformed into a resort-like beach party, bringing the Hamptons style look to life.


Fun Fiesta in the Sunset Room:

For those after that party atmosphere, the Sunset Room is a perfect place for music and activities, whilst still being open and unrestricted. NIB decided to opt for a bit of fun in this room with a Havana Photo Booth being installed, with fun dress-ups for the staff to pose with. On top of this, they chose to bring in a mariachi-style live band which got the dance floor going and made the Christmas Party anything but boring.

A mix of roaming canapes, a seafood experience station and fresh paella made sure guests had a variety of casual food options, whilst still bringing that beach side decadence that the venue oozes. If you’re after an old-fashioned good time, the space in the Sunset Room is an open canvas to create this.

Flexible Top Deck Soiree:

Our Top Deck space is a perfect balance between smart and casual, and the gorgeous deck can be perfectly transformed to suit just about any need, all with adjustable sliding glass doors  to ensure Sydney’s best harbour view in on display. Activision Blizzard opted for a sit-down event which made for easy socialising, but ensured the event wasn’t too formal with the tables contrasted against the beachy deck tiling and a ‘help-yourself’ grazing food station.


A stunning colourful balloon display was installed, which made sure the wooden tables weren’t too bare and still had that sense of playfulness mixed with a touch of sophistication.
