There are so many things to love about winter: Halloween, Bonfire Night, the potential for snow, Christmas parties, New Year's Eve parties, work parties, party dresses, gifts and, of course, Christmas shopping!
The festive season is a non-stop whirlwind of get-togethers, shopping, drinking and generally having fun! Which is why it's important to stock up on cocktail mixers and your favourite spirits to mix them with, and if you really want to have some fun, we suggest serving drinks in super-fun glassware. The highball glass is so 2015... drinking out of coconut cups is way cooler!
To kick start the festive season, we are celebrating with some really great Christmas discounts and deals, available exclusively in our online shop. We have 20% off all of our Funkin Party Packs right up until 22nd December 12pm, so make sure you check our online shop to really get your Christmas Party started (hint, hint!).
Simply use the code: FUNKINFESTIVE at the checkout.
Here's a few tips for ensuring you're ready for party season:
Invite to excite
Ok, so it's a million times easier to create a Facebook event to invite your friends to a party, but why not surprise your friends with a paper invitation in the mail. It will let your friends know you are planning a spectacularly Festive party! Want to add a personal touch, why not get crafty and make the invitations yourself and fill the envelope with Christmas themed confetti and maybe spritz it with festive scent.
If your guests smoke or just want to get some fresh air, decorate your garden or balcony with some fairy lights and maybe put some umbrellas and blankets out there to keep them cosy! December could bring snow, rain and definitely chilly temperatures, so be ready!
Buy plenty of food and drink
A Festive party is guaranteed to continue into the early hours, so buy plenty of food to keep your guests satisfied. A variety of drinks is an essential – stock up on cocktails, soft drinks and champagne! It's the season of indulgence after all! Want to shop our cocktail mixers and party packs to make everything super easy? You can find everything you need here and if you spend over £50 standard delivery is free! With Funkin cocktails, all you need to do is add ice and spirit and you have a great tasting cocktail!
Take lots of photos
You want to be able to look back and remember this party, buy some disposible cameras and scatter them around sofas, tables and around the bar. Let everyone snap away and you never know what results you might get at the end of it! Also make a hashtag for the party so everyone can share their images on social media and everyone will be able to access them, just make sure the hastag is unique, #NYEPARTY will be used by half the world, so instead make it #SallyAndPaulRockNYE.
Merry Christmas everyone and don't forget to Instagram us with your Funkin Cocktails Party pictures!
