The Importance of Planning Ahead for your Christmas Party

Although Christmas is a while away, it’s essential that businesses are thinking about their Christmas party – if they haven’t started already!

Not only does it pay to be organised, it will also ensure that you’re planning a party that will be perfect for you and your co-workers. As it’s supposed to be a celebration of the season with those you spend most of your days working alongside, it’s important that you’re putting a lot of effort in!

Your Venue

Now is the time to start looking for a base for your party as the more popular venues will start becoming booked up before the end of November.

You want to choose a place which will accommodate the amount of people that you need to be there, so it’s essential that you’ve got a final list of who can and can’t make it. The venue will need these numbers to determine whether they can accommodate your party, especially if it’s in an establishment where other businesses or guests will be celebrating, too.

If you’re looking for a venue which is just for you and your party, it’s important to find out how much you can customise your venue – you may want a bespoke light up letter display to really make your venue look even more special.

Think About Catering

It’s also important to decide whether you are wanting any kind of catering for your Christmas party. If you’re looking for a traditional sit-down meal, you may want to focus your attention on venues which provide set menus for your colleagues to choose from.

However, many businesses want to do something a little more for their staff and often opt for more relaxed catering options around Christmas time. Whether it’s a buffet, a bbq or simply a few nibbles on a table, you need to decide now what you want to do.

Some venues may require you to pre-order your food, so the sooner that you can decide on what you want food wise, the better!

Decide on a Theme

Christmas parties are supposed to be fun, so the less formal you can make your party, the better.

Give your colleagues the chance to let their hair down and get to know each other – it will be a very different environment from what they are used to in work-time, so encourage everyone to get involved with socialising!
