Are you in charge of planning a corporate Christmas party for your team? It’s never too early (or late) to start planning an event, especially if you want it to be a successful one.
Planning your Christmas party should be fun and exciting. You want your colleagues to remember the event and enjoy themselves to wrap up the end of the year in style. After all, it is the most wonderful time of the year. We have put together some tips to help you execute the most delightful and delicious Christmas party:
You must plan your Christmas party ahead of time. The earlier you can secure your venue, the better. You don’t want to be left without a venue, or have to choose your last option.
With so many venues available, choosing the right one can be quite daunting. Narrow down your options by scoping out what your company and guests want from the party. A great way to do this is by speaking to your colleagues or perhaps even sending out a quick email survey to see what everyone would like. This will help determine whether you need to pull out all the stops with entertainment or host a dinner party.
At Sahra by the River, we offer a variety of different spaces within the restaurant, including the private room, outdoor terrace or entire restaurant. Our team can also cater to the dietary needs of all of your colleagues (no matter how fussy they are!) and ensure your end of year party is unforgettable. Our team can tailor food and drink packages, suitable for all, with options such as vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free available. You will have one less thing to worry about!
It’s the holiday season, so why not incorporate a festive theme for the party. We recommend composing a poll to see which theme is the most popular! This will also help you narrow down to a particular one. Themes are a great way of getting everyone involved in the event, particularly during the festive season.
Some theme ideas you could use:
- Make it a masquerade: this is a simple, easy and inexpensive way of getting people to dress up in a costume
- Holiday sweaters: making everyone wear their favourite holiday sweater is a simple and effective way of getting the whole team involved
- Santa hats: place a Santa hat in front of everyone’s seat and make sure they wear it. This will create a unified theme and ensure everyone is involved in the holiday spirit!
We also love the idea of entertainment! It’s the holiday season, so why not spice up the event with a DJ or photo booth. There are many quirky and creative options for photo booths where people can create memories. Music is also a great way of adding atmosphere to your corporate function event!
Hope, joy, love and gladness. Let all these be your guide this holiday season.
It is also vital that you consider if you are going to make your event lunch or dinner. As this is a hectic time for both business and social lives, you must take careful consideration in the time and date to ensure everyone can make it. Lunch events are usually easy and can be hosted during work hours where people don’t have to take out extra time out of their weekends or nights to fit in yet another event! Everyone has their commitments and considering these are important to guarantee every clicks ‘attending’.
