The holiday season has arrived, and it’s you who’s been tasked wit planning the corporate Christmas party this year. You’re excited, and you’re nervous… Your company is famed for their holiday parties. Each one is better than the last, and you can’t exactly break that tradition now. But you’re not sure where to start, or how to pull off the corporate holiday party without a hitch.
A holiday party in December can’t exactly be held outside, now can it? Opt for a nice restaurant with a private event space, or a local hall, or maybe even hit up Jack in accounting; he’s got the nicest house you’ve ever had the pleasure of visiting, and you know how he loves to host. The perfect venue can make or break a party.
Projecting your company motto or logo for all to see as they enter the soiree is a great way to make a grand entrance possible. You might also consider posting someone at the door to take coats and hand out drinks.
Having a theme for your event is a great way to give your party personality and make it fun and interesting. With a well executed theme, no one will dare call your corporate holiday party boring.
A solid, set budget will help you as the corporate party planner know what can be spent where. You need to know how much you will need to spend on feeding all your guests first. Then, knowing what money is left over, you can plan your event accordingly. This helps keep things organized and all planned out.
What’s a holiday party without alcohol? Not one that sounds fun, that’s for sure! Consider your crowd, and consider offering only beer and wine to prevent anyone from getting sloppy on company time. Also, have a few northern Virginia cab companies on speed dial for anyone who might need a safe ride home.
