The holidays are right around the corner, and with them come holiday parties! If you’ve been tasked with planning your corporate holiday party this year, there are a few things to keep in mind to make your event a success.
Many businesses schedule their holiday parties for Friday and Saturday nights, but your employees may have other commitments, and venues tend to be more expensive. Consider a midweek fete or a lunchtime celebration to cut down on costs and allow for more people to attend.
Music will set the mood for your party. Make things festive by hiring a band or a DJ who will mix in some holiday tunes with songs people enjoy dancing to. Choose an entertainer who fits in with your company’s culture.
Setting a cap on gift price (like $10) and/or doing a white elephant exchange will keep things low-pressure.
If there’s one thing people love about parties, it’s the food! Nix that potluck idea—your coworkers or employees have enough on their plates this time of year without having to whip up a casserole to bring to the office. Why not make things easier and more fun by hiring a caterer? If you’re in the Atlanta area, contact Figs & Honey Catering for delicious corporate catering at your next holiday party!
