Are you in charge of planning this year’s company Christmas party? If so, you may be wondering how you can make it into something awesome, rather than a boring work function that people can’t wait to leave.
The best corporate Christmas party is fun, exciting, and memorable. Not only that, but Christmas parties can improve employee retention, boost morale, and can strengthen team dynamics.
If you’re ready to plan the best Christmas party, keep reading for our top tips to get you started on the right track.
The best party venues book out early—sometimes, by January or February. For an epic party, start researching venues and book it as early as you can, or you may miss out.
Look for somewhere fun, near the office, and in a convenient location, so it’s easy for people to get home after.
Once it’s confirmed, send out your corporate Christmas party invitations so attendees have something to look forward to and can save the date.
Select an Amazing Menu
Food (and drinks) can make or break a good party, so put some thought into selecting the menu. You’ll need to cater for all dietary restrictions, with plenty of delicious food, so that no one goes hungry.
Your budget will dictate if it’s a formal dinner or just canapes, but both can be a lot of fun, as long as you get the menu right.
Try to visit the venue in advance for a tasting, which can ensure the food meets your standards.
Your party needs to have entertainment! You want to make sure attendees have a great time and stick around, so give them something to look forward to.
This could be a live band, a DJ, trivia or games, or another fun activity.
Come Up with Party Favors They’ll Love
Everyone loves a souvenir from a party, or participating in a raffle and winning door prizes.
Amazing giveaways can encourage people to come to the party and they’ll get a great thrill when they can take home cool prizes!
When it comes to the best favors or raffle items, here are a few corporate gift hampers that are perfect for Christmas.
You can never go wrong with gifts like chocolate, wine, or gourmet jams or spreads.
