More Corporate Holiday Party Tips (Part II)

September 24, 2012

Last month we discussed the basics of corporate holiday party planning. Here are some additional tips to help make your holiday party a success!

To theme or not to theme, that is the question…It really is! Some corporate holiday parties choose to incorporate a theme while others do not. There is no right or wrong. It is purely a matter of preference. If you do want to attach a theme to your party here are some ideas:

Winter Wonderland

It might sound obvious, but a Winter Wonderland themed holiday party is a perfect choice for an elegant party. There are so many beautiful ways to decorate, and even though you are in California, you can create a lovely snow-themed party indoors.

Charity Ball

Allow all employees to vote on a charity and then a Holiday Charity Ball theme. Ask each party goer to bring an item appropriate to donate to the selected charity, and then hold special raffles throughout with all proceeds being donated to the cause.

Holiday Characters

A costume party for a corporate holiday party? Why not?! Ask each attendee to dress as a character from a favorite holiday movie, song or television show. It will be fun to see what type of creative costumes walk in the door. Have a prize for most original. It is a good idea to make costumes optional so those who do not want to dress up will still attend.

Corporate Gift Ideas

A holiday party is the perfect time to give each employee a corporate gift to thank them for all of their efforts throughout the year. Choose something that will be useful to the employees. Below are a few ideas.

• Robe embroidered with company logo
• Pen and pencil set embossed with logo
• Desk sets
• Business card holders
• Paper weights

Banquet Options for Corporate Holiday Parties
