November is the perfect time for a corporate holiday party! Not only is it the beginning of the holiday season, but it’s also before most of the chaos of the holidays begins. That means you can actually relax and enjoy yourself without having to worry about all the shopping, cooking, and cleaning that comes later.
Additionally, many employees have travel plans during the holiday season, so holding the party in November means that more people will be able to attend. And, of course, what’s a holiday party without some festive decorations? November is the perfect time to get into the spirit of things, start decorating your office, and plan your upcoming holiday celebration!
If you’re in charge of planning your company’s holiday party this year, here are a few tips to make sure it’s a success:
Choose the Right Venue
The first step to planning a great corporate holiday party is choosing the right venue. You’ll want to find a place that’s large enough to accommodate all your guests, but not so large that it feels empty. Stokely Event Center provides a unique, accommodating atmosphere for groups of all sizes.
Our corporate event center is functional and fun, featuring arcade games, vintage Route 66 memorabilia, audio/video equipment, and so much more. This makes it the perfect place to host your company holiday party!
We don’t provide a specified vendor list, providing you with the ability to choose food and beverage caterers that fit your budget and event preferences.
Have Fun with the Theme
Part of what makes corporate holiday parties so great is that they give you a chance to have some fun with the theme. You can get as creative as you want, or keep it simple – it’s up to you!
If you need some inspiration, here are a few ideas:
- Throwback Thursday: Have a party that takes guests back in time to their favorite decade.
- Ugly Sweater: Encourage guests to wear their tackiest holiday sweaters.
- White Elephant: Do a gift exchange with a twist -have everyone bring an unwanted gift from home.
Plan Games and Activities
No party is complete without some fun games and activities! This is a great way to get everyone involved and have a good time.
Here are a few ideas:
- Holiday Trivia: Test your guests’ knowledge of all things holiday-related.
- Cookie Decorating: Get creative with icing, sprinkles, and other toppings.
- Gift Wrap Relay: Divide guests into teams and see who can wrap a present the fastest.
