Holiday Party at Casa Real | Sequoia

We’ve been eager to share this holiday party at Casa Real with you, and we’re thrilled the time has come! Sequoia is always showing out for their company celebrations — we’ve transformed Casa Real into everything from a circus to a glam Hollywood flashback. So this time, we couldn’t wait to embrace the winter wonderland theme!

From the all-white tablescapes to the glistening chandeliers throughout the space, we like to think we had the wintry vibe on lock. I mean, just see for yourself!

But this celebration wasn’t just about design and décor… It was all about the guest experience! Hello, just take a peek at this sweet S’mores bar that was set outside. And on such a beautiful day, too!

We had hand-drawn caricatures, aerial performers, ballet dancers, a DIY fry bar, and so much more. Heck, even the Abominable Snowman and Buddy the Elf came to party with us!

6 Holiday Covers to Spice Up the Party

‘Tis the season for Christmas music! As you turn up the dial, you might be looking for something a little different to mix with your old-fashioned favorites.

Here are six holiday covers of well-known Christmas songs to put on this year!

All I Want for Christmas is You” by Dolly Parton

Seasonal favorite, meet industry favorite! Everyone loves Mariah Carey’s epic jingle and everyone loves Dolly Parton, so this is the perfect cover to get people singing. Its country-esque tune is light, whimsical, and enjoyable for all.

What Christmas Means to Me” by John Legend

If this Stevie Wonder tune is a must-listen during your holiday season, you won’t want to miss out on John Legend’s melodic version. The ensemble backing him up is filled with various instruments for a fun vibe — plus, Stevie himself is on the harmonica!

Joy to the World” by Sufjan Stevens

A soft, sweet, and calming version of this age-old classic, Sufjan Stevens masters the acoustic sound for a holiday cover that is sure to win over guests of every age. Perfect for background music during mealtime or gift opening.

The Christmas Song” by She & Him

While you can’t go wrong with Frank Sinatra & Nat King Cole, we’re partial to the beautiful and romantic cover of The Christmas Song by She & Him. This version just makes us want to cozy up with a warm blanket, a mug of cocoa, and our loved ones!

Santa Claus is Coming to Town” by Bruce Springsteen 

Traditional? Not quite. A great holiday cover? Totally. The Boss adds just the right amount of edge to this Christmas classic for a fun and dynamic beat. This is one your guests may request to repeat!

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas” by Michael Bublé

The holiday cover to end all holiday covers! This classic has become so popular that most people don’t even know that Michael Bublé’s version is a cover of a song that dates back to the 1950s. It’s certainly a Christmas staple for any festive party!
