Our corporate Christmas party is only a month away!
Christmas is fast approaching …
and everywhere is booked up!
Where are you going to hold this year’s corporate Christmas party?
Do not panic!
You still have 30 days to sort out this event. Although you may feel as though there is still a lot to do, you will soon notice that things come together very quickly!
So you have asked around at a variety of different venues and there is no availability.
This now means that you are going to have to hold the Christmas party at the office.
Ok, it isn’t what you originally wanted, but that doesn’t mean it’s not going to be a great night!
To help you arrange a fantastic evening, we have put together some ideas that will make your event go off with a bang!
1: Entertainment Networking
If you have an established relationship with a corporate entertainment provider, ask if they can help by networking.
Corporate entertainers and corporate event suppliers develop strong relationships with the best in their business.
They may be able to provide you with the names of entertainers that might be available.
In our office, we prefer to establish solid relationships.
The best way to do that is provide stellar service.
If Tom isn't available, or isn't the right for your event, he can recommend entertainers that will make your function a success.
By doing this, we know that when you have a great time this year, you will keep us in mind when you need entertainment again.
Even when recommended, still make sure you look at some video and reviews before you book.
The last thing you want is your entertainment to spoil the event.
2: What About Food?
There are no caterers that can organize your food in such a short period of time.
Do not worry!
You could always pop to the local supermarkets to pick up some food or you could ring around different restaurants to see if they could sort something out for you.
It doesn’t matter what food you do, as long as it tastes good and there is enough of it people will be happy!
3: Decorate The Office
You need people to feel as though they are not in work.
You can do this by simply decorating the office with Christmas decorations.
Buy a couple of Christmas trees and plenty of lights and your office will soon look a lot more like Santa’s Grotto.
The best way to organize your drinks for the evening is by simply calling it a “Bring your own booze” event.
That way everyone will bring what they like and that’s one less item on the list you need to worry about.
This one is simple. You or someone you know must own an I pod. Set up some speakers and hit shuffle.
That’s your music for the event!
If you cannot use an I pod, there are a variety of different websites you can get free music from. Hook your laptop up to the speakers instead.
All of these ideas are very easy to organize within a short space of time and I am sure that you will have no problems hosting a fantastic event.
