1. The Greatest Showman

If you’re looking for an epic Christmas party theme this year the box office hit movie, The Greatest Showman starring Hugh Jackman as P. T. Barnum, will give you loads of inspiration. Hark back to the glamorous vintage era of circus with popcorn machines, aerialists and acrobats, gold and red themed table decor, and big tent-inspired ceiling silks. Guests can get into the spirit by dressing as the ringmaster, bearded lady, clowns or anything in between – anything goes at P.T. Barnum’s circus. The Southern Cross Gala Ballroom with it’s 6m high ceilings would be the ideal room to host your vintage circus Christmas party. We’ve also got the BIG Fremantle Ferris Wheel right across the road… how fitting!

2. Rustic Australiana

Take a tip from the wedding industry this year and opt for a rustic Australiana themed Christmas party. Rustic theming has been popular for a number of years; freshen it up with an Australian twist using native floral arrangements, hessian table runners, and farm chic decor pieces. Our Executive Chef can work with you to create an Australian-inspired bush tucker menu that will truly give your guests a unique experience. The heritage listed Island Suite function venue suits a rustic feel and would add a special touch to your 2018 Christmas party in Fremantle, Perth.

3. 90’s Throwback

Take a step back in time, not too far, just to the 90’s for a nostalgic filled Christmas party. The 90’s have had a resurgence for the past few years, so why not jump on the band wagon; most of your guests will remember or at least appreciate the iconic fashion and music of this era. A 90’s playlist is sure to fill the dance floor and the costume ideas are simple enough for everyone to get involved (just add a bit of denim on denim). Food wise, you might want to keep it a bit modern, but your theming can include neon colours and boom boxes. The Resort Pool area would be ideal to host your 90’s themed party this festive season – easy to decorate and you can promote it as the ultimate 90’s pool party!

3. Superheros – DC vs Marvel

There’s no denying that superheros are popular right now; the never-ending release of superhero movies isn’t showing any sign of slowing down in 2018 so take advantage of the popularity and encourage your Christmas party guests to find their inner hero. You can pitch the two mega brands against each other and see who wins by asking guests to dress as either DC or Marvel characters. Theming for a superhero themed party would be easy to organise with many hire companies stocking these items. Host your Superhero themed 2018 Christmas party in the Indian Ocean Suite – it’s a blank canvas waiting for your creativity and it overlooks the Dolphin pool.
