If you haven’t started planning your holiday party, it’s not too late. We have the perfect tips to help you pull off the best event of the season.
Keep It Close
When it comes to location, use your office as a base to determine the best venue for your party. Keeping it close to office hours will generate a larger attendance. If an event is immediately after hours, it can be treated as a cocktail hour and set up for workers to mingle comfortably.
Don’t Lose Time Over Décor
While décor is important, don’t forget the main reason for the event, for guests to enjoy themselves and each other. Focus first on making sure your employees will enjoy the event then spend spare time on decorations.
2017 Holiday Trends
As you know, florals are back and are the perfect décor for your holiday party. Bright red, white and deep florals add a pop of color and holiday cheer to the event. In addition to florals, natural greenery is a popular décor touch this year.
Find Food That Fits
Food is an important staple to any event. Work with a caterer willing to tailor the menu to your guests. If you want to break the line, try a variety of food stations instead. Food stations allows for a wider selection of food options guests can visit throughout the event.
Do Focus On The Little Things
When booking a venue, don’t forget to include the appropriate amount of staff needed. An easy way to have an upset crowd is to keep them waiting in lines for cocktails and retrieving their car from the valet. You want them to not only enjoy their time during the event, but also want them to leave the event happy.
