Elements to consider when organizing a company Christmas party
The Christmas party is an opportunity for business leaders to get together with their employees, collaborators, customers and their families in a festive, friendly and joyful atmosphere, far from the stress of everyday life. Discover the elements to consider to organize a successful and memorable party.
1- The budget
The first thing to do once you decide to organize a Christmas party is to establish a budget. Define the amount of money you can allocate to the party according to your company’s means in order to avoid spending too much that could lead to financial problems later. All future decisions you make should be based on this budget.
2- Food and catering
Next, you need to determine the menu and the drinks you would like to serve during the party. Then, look for competent caterers who would be able to meet your expectations. We also advise you to remain open to their suggestions, as they may have good ideas in their capacity as professionals. Most importantly, ask about prices to see if they fit your budget and make the next decisions.
Guests want to have fun during a party. The choice of the animation is thus an important step to organize this kind of party. Would you rather hire a DJ, an artist or a band? Then you need to survey the market to compare prices and the skills of the providers to find the offer that best suits your expectations and your budget.
4- Theme and decoration
You should also choose a jovial, friendly and especially in the spirit of Christmas theme for your party. Be creative and don’t be afraid to ask for input from your staff if necessary. Then, think about any decorations that match and find out how much they might cost. In any case, don’t forget the Christmas tree.
5- The number of guests and the reception room
Once you have all the data in hand, namely your budget as well as the different rates of the providers, you can determine the number of people you can invite to your Christmas party. Of course, all your employees must be present, but depending on your means, it is also possible to invite their families, your partners or even your customers. Finally, find a beautiful reception hall that can accommodate all your guests.
6- The extras
If your budget allows, you can add a few extras such as rewards for top performers or small gift bags for everyone. In the spirit of Christmas, you can also organize a “Secret Santa” style gift exchange for more fun.
