The Christmas holidays 2018 are around the corner and it’s time to start planning because last minute planning may not always be as fruitful as you want it to be.
Holiday parties are something that are mostly hosted by large corporate houses, yet small business firms and offices should also take advantage of this time to bring smile on their employee’s face. Christmas is the perfect time to arrange a special party to improve their company culture, motivate employees for a positive outcome and spread brand awareness in the society.
There are plenty of ideas for a holiday party entertainment. Make sure to pick the ones that will make it an exciting event and help everyone joining your party feel cheerful and bright.
Check out some of the useful tips to ensure that your holiday party this year is going to rock:
1. Make Smart Use of Your Phone for Planning:
Make things easier by using your smartphone and mobile apps to keep every detail of the party updated. Make use of social media like facebook, LinkedIn to invite people to the party or make announcements through official groups.
2. Decide Your Party Theme:
The party theme should be unique to keep the interest on. Some examples: Movie theme, casino theme, Christmas folktale etc. Hire one of the top event planning companies and execute your plan well to make the theme successful.
3. Choose Out-of-the-Box Food menu:
Give your guests some relief from the same old Christmas food menu comprising of cookies, cakes and chips. Instead plan some exotic food from different regions of the world and place them on the table to win everybody’s heart. Include items from Thai, Japanese and other continental menu.
4. It’s Time to Give Back To the Society:
Save your party from being stereotype by doing something different like arranging a fundraiser event or helping the old and poor through charity etc. This would glorify your co.’s image as a socially responsible organisation.
5. Reward the Employees & Win their Confidence:
Honour Your Employees by acknowledging their contribution in the company’s growth and distribute some personalised gifts as token of appreciation that would ultimately reward back the Co. in the long run. You may choose anything like personalised photo frame and messages, tablet cases, pen or card holder etc.
6. Light Up the Dance Floor to Keep the Party full on:
Hire a professional live band or DJ to keep the party alive and entertain your guests. Explore the hidden talents of your employees by giving them an opportunity to host a karaoke party as an anchor. It could be an exciting moment for many to perform at the party and surprise everyone with their singing or dancing talents, thus turning the venue into a dance floor. After all, getting appreciation from office colleagues means a lot to many.
You may also hire a comedian, magician or other entertainers for the party, specially if it is a family party.
