»Posted by on Aug 28, 2017 in Corporate Party | 0 comments

One of the most stressing and overwhelming tasks you can receive in your career is the planning of the corporate party. A lot of weight is brought upon your shoulders to facilitate and create an awesome party that the employees have always wanted. 

If you are in this situation, you need not panic though, because there are a lot of awesome corporate parties that have happened before, and if they did it, so you can. You just need some knowledge and proper planning to attain your goal. To help you in this task, I will share a list of considerations to take on planning a corporate party. 

Corporate Party 

  • Determine the Budget

Before you plan anything else, you first have to determine the budget that the management has allocated for the party. The budget would be one of the determinants of the quality of the party; all employees must be aware of this budget so they can adjust their expectations appropriately.  

To have a bigger budget, you can set up daily, weekly, or monthly contributions from the employees. It is important to remember though, that a large budget is not a guarantee for an awesome party, you have to be creative and resourceful with what you have. 

  • Set Date and Venue

When you have your corporate party, there is a large chance that it is in the season of celebrations like Christmas. You have to realize that you are not the only corporations that will have a party, so long before the season, you have, to determine the date and venue. This way you can go to the place and have the venue reserved for your company. Plan this, so you would not undergo hassles of last minute changes. 

  • Pick a Theme

To make a party awesome, you have to have a theme. A theme is not just a dress code; it is the determinant of the feel and atmosphere of the party, the decorations, the food, set of entertainments and music will flow from it. Make sure that the theme will be approved upon unanimously by the employees, they have to be enthusiastic and ‘in’ for the theme.  

  • Food and Drink

There would be no party without foods or drink; they are simply the staple, so you should make them awesome. This doesn’t mean you have to buy first class food; it means choosing the best available that the budget can afford.  

If the venue has menus and has the reputation of having excellent food, then it is better to go for it, you will also have a discount for this. However, if the food is not good enough, you can find other reputable catering services from outside.  

For drinks, you can buy it before the party, this way you control your budget, but you also risk on buying too few or many drinks. Another way is renting an open bar, where you have to pay what is consumed in the night. 

  • Giveaways

Another way to make your corporate party awesome and memorable is through having giveaways. These giveaways will serve as the remembrance of the fun of being with the company and partying all night. One of the best giveaways you can have is pictures; to do this, you can rent a photo booth so the employees can take pictures together.
