5 entertainment ideas for your Toronto holiday party

Throwing a holiday party doesn't have to be a lot of work. The main task is creating your guestlist, after that it's just food, booze and something unique to make it a night to remember.

Here are some ideas to bring your holiday party to the next level.

Create an indoor skating rink

Glisse On Ice takes away the stress and shivers of moving your holiday party to a public skating rink and brings the ice indoors. The synthetic indoor skating stage can be installed in all types of indoor venues and creator Chantal Fry and her team will perform specifically themed numbers for your event.

Invite carolers into your home

Stop hoping that a joyous group of carolers will stop by your place to sing some festive hits and just hire them to show up right on time! You can listen to what Toronto Carolers sound like before you hire them, and they come dressed in full Victoria regalia.

Get a GIF station

SweetGIF is a roming GIF station you can install at your holiday party for some very internet shareable moments. It's a digital photobooth that creates instant GIFs which are then uploaded to the internet where your party people can view, comment and share them on any social media. They have costume options as well.

Bring in the clowns

OK, maybe not exclusively clowns, but you can hire acrobats and circus performers through the Toronto School of Cirus Arts. From Aerial to acrobatics, their bending bodies will be a jaw dropping addition to your holiday party. If you ask nicely, maybe they'll even show up dressed as reindeers.

Trade your Spotify for a local harpist

The soundtrack to any holiday party is essential and set the tone for your night. To truly bring that warm, festive vibe to you party, hire a local harpist. Musicians like Joanna Jordan are happy to discuss song selections and can show up with full show harps, or smaller versions to fit into any size of space.
