Top Trends for 2017: The Christmas Countdown is On!


The Christmas countdown is now on, and with the most wonderful time of the year drawing ever closer it might be time to start thinking about this year’s festive theming! If you’re planning something different for your next Christmas party, take inspiration from our top trends for 2017. Tidings of comfort and joy!


Wellness and Mindfulness

We’re expecting the wellness trend to be big this Christmas. Our in-house caterer Moving Venue can provide locally sourced, organic and ethical produce for Christmas parties high above the streets of London. You could also add a charitable twist to your celebrations by organising donations or fundraising as part of your event. And for the finishing touch – book one of our entertainment partner Fullcircle’s brilliant mind readers to give your guests a taste of what to expect from the year ahead!  


Ice Theme

Our preferred supplier Millharbour Digital can help you create the perfect winter wonderland at Landing Forty Two with the addition of beautiful snowflake vinyls throughout the space. Then it’s just a case of adding some frosted trees, icicles and winter wonderland inspired furnishings such as Vibration’s LED cube seating. Take the party to the next level with the addition of a vodka luge which can be shaped into your favourite wintry forest creature, or keep it classic with a snowflake ice sculpture.  


Futuristic Theme

The futuristic look is big in the events world at the moment. Recently, many clients have used Landing Forty Two to take guests back to the future with tech-inspired theming. This theme is particularly good at Landing Forty Two, thanks to the venue’s exposed pipes on the ceiling and the fastest glass lifts in Europe transporting guests to their futuristic celebration. Check out this recent case study from MGN Events.


Christmas Food Stations

It wouldn’t be Christmas without a feast of delicious seasonal food! Inspired by traditional Christmas markets throughout the UK during December, this Christmas theme makes food the star of the show. You could set up popular themed food stations throughout the venue, including a ‘German market’, cheese stand and ‘Best of British’ stall for classic favourites.
