How To Plan A Great Event For Your Company’s Christmas Party

Are you in charge of planning your company’s Christmas party this year? If you are, you don’t have a minute to lose, as Christmas is right around the corner. Of course, sending invitations via email is one way to put the word out. However, most people love receiving personal mail, so sending invitations through the postal system will make the event more special from the very beginning. Don’t forget to indicate what the dress for the event will be, and get RSVPs so you’ll know how many to plan for.

Secure A Location – If you have a large enough room right at your workplace, you’ve got it made. If not, where you hold your event will depend on the size of your group. If you have a large group, renting a banquet hall would be ideal, but you’ll have to act fast to secure a reservation. Often hotels have banquet halls and restaurants. That would be perfect, as your meal could be catered by the hotel restaurant. If your group is small, consider having it at a restaurant, and finding one that has separate rooms for groups. Another idea is to have the event at somebody’s home. There’s something cozy and special about getting together in a home that is already decorated for the holidays. If you do have the party at somebody’s home, it would still be great to have it catered. 

The Activities – While part of the fun is just getting to mingle with friends and coworkers, some planned activities will be enjoyable, too. One game involves passing an orange from person to person, but no hands can touch the orange. Another good one would be musical chairs. If you want a similar game that’s not quite as active, think about one where everybody gets in a circle. You pass an object, say a party hat, from person to person while the music goes. Whoever is holding the object when the music stops is out of the game.  Some other ideas might include hiring a professional comedian or magician to perform. Hiring a DJ or having live music for dancing would make your event especially memorable.

Don’t forget to choose a Master of Ceremonies for your event, and don’t forget to take pictures which can be posted on a bulletin board at work. Contact a company that specializes in corporate parties, like Bowlerama, for more help.
