For those awarded the job of organising the epic office end of year celebration, today’s blog is all for you. Read on for our tips and tricks on how you can guarantee your position at the top of Santa’s nice list, aka ensuring that everyone loves your partae*
*read: the best party ever
Let’s start at the very beginning. A very good place to start! *cue Julie Andrews, Sound Of Music*. Form a committee. At the end of the day, the end of year celebration is for the majority, and what better way to put on a show that everyone will love than by having “the majority” plan it!
As much as in-office parties have a tendency to make everyone feel “at home,” we vote no. Book a venue off site and let the team relax and switch off from the daily grind. Have you heard of San Remo Ballroom? Check out how great our space is for Christmas Parties here!
GET THE WORD OUT EARLY
Start your event communication nice and early by sending out a save-the-date email first and foremost. Once the date and venue are locked in, this is your moment. Then, once you have details regarding timings, theme (if applicable) and further logistics, send out an actual invitation.
WHEN IN DOUBT
Three words my friends: Simple. And. Elegant. You don’t need to go too overboard to have a great end of year party. As long as you provide a nice location and a drink or five, your employees will have a ball! Let the venue take care of the rest.
FOOD AND DRINKS
This is likely what every will remember. When in doubt go for crowd pleasing items, and your venue will likely be able to point you in the right direction of what these might be. Sit down or a cocktail menu, pair with ice cold beverages and serve.
