An office Christmas party is a wonderful opportunity to show your appreciation for your team while ending the year on a high note. From booking caterers to planning the little details, the pressure of hosting a successful party is enough to stress out any business manager. Fortunately, if you know what to do, this seemingly difficult task becomes easy and fun. Use the tips below to plan a party that your employees will be talking about well into next year.
How to Plan a Great Christmas Party
1. Hire Catering by Deli Double
Incredible food is at the center of any successful party. Choose a caterer who provides delicious food that your employees will love. Look for a corporate catering service that will make life easy for you on the day of the party; it’s most convenient if they can provide your dining ware and set up your food for you as well. Decide whether you’d prefer a buffet or boxed meals for each individual person; for larger parties, buffet style tends to be the easiest choice, and a hot buffet with various choices will add to the special atmosphere of the event.
2. Plan an Activity
An activity will encourage everyone to have fun while providing an additional way to show your appreciation for your employees. A fun activity could include lip syncing or a board game tournament. If you decide to hold a competition of some sort, include a desirable prize to compete for. A fun way to show your appreciation could include a raffle or giving out end-of-year awards.
Decorations set the scene and get everyone in the holiday spirit as soon as they enter the room. What type of decor you choose will depend on the style of your party. If you want a traditional Christmas party, get a decorated tree and hang red and green Christmas lights around the room. For an elegant and general seasonal party that is inclusive to many holidays, hang snowflakes and place birch trees adorned with white lights or faux snow around the space.
