Planning the Perfect Corporate Christmas Party
If you’ve been tasked with planning your company’s Christmas party, it’s likely that you’ll be feeling either excited or nervous – or maybe a little bit of both.
Often one of the most anticipated events of the year, it’s important that you get it spot on! After all, you don’t want to be remembered as the person who ruined Christmas…
Luckily, we have put together some helpful tips to ensure that your festive planning doesn’t disappoint this Christmas.
Find Out Your Budget
If you’re not the person who controls the money in the business, it’s essential that you speak to the person who does before starting any planning. Ask them if you have a specific budget to work with. This will stop you getting carried away booking venues or entertainment that far exceeds the money you have to work with.
Choose a Fun Theme
Don’t be afraid to do something a little different than you may have done in previous years. Most Christmas parties generally abide by the theme of “Christmas” but that doesn’t mean you can’t do something a little more unique.
How about an Oscars themed party? It’s the perfect opportunity to award employees for their hard work throughout the year. You can have fun awards such as “office clown” as well as more rewarding such as “lifetime achievement”. Order some little trophies or design your own certificates and your employees will be thrilled with the effort gone into personalising the theme.
Get out of the Office
Location is always important when it comes to party planning, and even more so when it comes to a corporate one. No one wants to have a party at their desks so definitely ensure that whatever you plan, it involves getting out of the office.
There are certain things that you will need to take into consideration. For example, is it out of town or close to your work? Is the venue accessible to everyone? Will you need to think about transportation?
Don’t forget to think about size too. The number of employees attending will impact the size of venue. You don’t want a big room that you can’t fill, or a small room that requires half of the team to stand up for the duration of the event.
Arrive in Style
If you are planning on choosing a venue that requires transportation, why not consider a party bus? Guaranteed to keep everyone entertained on the way to the party, it’s the ideal way to break the ice and get everyone in the mood for the festivities ahead.
Our party coaches can be decorated as you wish, in colours to suit your theme. They also come complete with disco lighting, a sound system and complimentary bubbly! You can get the party started before even arriving at your venue.
Whatever you have in mind for your Christmas party, we’re confident that our party bus hire service will ensure that it’s an occasion to remember.
