If you find yourself organising a Christmas party, whether it’s a private family reunion or a corporate get-together that you want your colleagues—and the boss you badly want to impress—to enjoy, getting the best catering and party services is of utmost importance. Great suppliers understand your need for that hassle-free, worry-free planning, mixing and serving, with superior packages and services tailor-fit for you and your guests.
Bringing a full Christmas party can be tricky, depending on the budget and size there are many elements that need to be considered, from picking the right food that suits the function, for example is it canapés and cocktails or sit down meals with presentations?
The party will always be a hit with exciting drinks served responsibly — from daiquiris to smoothies, from cooling cocktails to refreshing mojitos, from chilled wine to ice-cold beer, amazing drinks served by professional bartenders are a great way to impress your staff and guests.
So that’s food and drink organised but then you also have the venue, the decorations, the theme, the invites, the entertainment plus any amazing value adds you may want to throw in there for good measure and to create that “wow” factor!
Its a lot to think about and all at Christmas as well, when most people are busy themselves with work.
Here are our top 3 tips for planning your Christmas party;
1. Dont delay! Many venues, caterers and suppliers get booked out over the Christmas period so we advise to start planning your Christmas party as early as August to make sure you get the suppliers and venue you want!
2. Be organised. There are many elements to think about depending on how big the party is, from food and drinks to venue, theming, entrainment and music. Being organised and well prepared will allow you to book the best suppliers and ensure no last minute stress and panic.
3. Outsource. It may be just you or a full committee organising the Christmas party but without some sort of outsourced help it can get very tricky to ensure all boxes are ticked leading up to the party. Particularly if things are busy with work that time of year. A simple idea is to get help and outsource some or all items so it all comes together with no worries or stress!
Get those Christmas carols playing and get the invitations and announcements around, if you follow our easy steps above you will only have to worry about what presents to give who!
