Candy buffet, with a wisp of candy floss and a generous sprinkle of glitter!
This Christmas was mainly about our enormous, overflowing and truly spectacular candy buffet! We added a wisp of candy floss and a generous sprinkle of glitter thrown in and voila – Candy Queens Christmas. We were extremely happy to work with a number of well known brands to help create some sparkling Christmas parties for their hard-working staff.
Among our favourite corporate events this year were Debenhams, King (Candy Crush Saga developers) and Dixons Carphone. In between we worked with some fabulous private clients for a mixture of birthdays and Christmas celebrations, bringing our own brand of fun and interaction to more intimate events. All in all a varied and extremely glittery Christmas for the Candy Queens crew.
The Dixons Carphone Christmas party
We began our Christmas season at the end of November, with the Dixons Carphone staff Christmas party. Held at ExCel London with over 3000 staff members from all around the country, the entertainment was truly fabulous. We provided our Maxi Glitter Boutique with 4 glitter artists, the theme was ‘Festival’ so we concentrated on neon and UV looks. We were so busy all night glittering, making friends and laughing with the guests – we can say that our neon themed Glitter Boutique was a huge success.
Other entertainment laid on for the staff made the whole event one of our favourites this year. There were neon and festival themed bars and a wide variety of tasty food available, including pizzas, thai chicken and even fresh fruit. The silent disco in an inflatable dome was a very busy, photobooths set around the sides, fancy dress gear everywhere and some amazing walkabout entertainment. Starring on the enormous stage was a comedian, who was followed throughout the night by some amazing bands and to finish, an ABBA tribute band which we absolutely LOVED!
Candy Crush Christmas party
This years’ Christmas parties were definitely not Christmas themed! Our costumes took a journey through neon, 80’s and circus themes, and one of our favourites was Enchanted Forest, for King – developers of Candy Crush Saga. Held at a historical setting in London, the marquee was completely transformed into an enchanted snowy forest, with fire pits outdoors, tasty food and fairground rides. We provided our candy buffet which was overflowing with fruity forest treats and decorated with twinkling lights and forest greenery. We even provided a candy-pushing enchanted bunny Queen! A truly magical setting for a very fun Christmas party.
Debenhams ‘Back to the 80’s’ Christmas party
December was a whirl of both private and corporate events, but the cherry on our cake was the Debenhams staff Christmas party at legendary London club Fabric. Every room and level was crammed with super-popular activites, and we were so happy to be able to provide 3 of these. Our Luxury Glitter Boutique with 2 glitter artists was nestled in a corner of the VIP mezzanine bar. The Glitter Boutique was (as usual) such a hit, that the queue was around the bar with guests happy to chat and drink whilst waiting.
In the 80’s club room one of our gorgeous Candy Queens gave out glowing candy floss from our amazing LED candy floss stand. Whilst on the opposite podium we created an absolutely fabulous, 4m long glowing candy buffet totally overflowing with retro sweets.
