There’s no better way to wrap up twelve months of hard work and company milestones than a n end of the year bash. Company parties help bring your entire team together, boosting company morale, and building camaraderie. Here are some holiday planning tips and creative ideas to help ensure a memorable celebration! Start planning early and ensure your company party is a major hit!
Book the Perfect Holiday Party Venue
Venues fill up as the holiday season approaches, along with the perfect space. With space available for gatherings large and small, let Canterbury help create a warm and beautiful atmosphere that will impress all your guests! If you don’t want to start the Season with the thought, “why didn’t I book sooner?”, now is the time to research the best venue for your holiday celebration!
Select the Perfect Festive Food for Your Holiday Party!
A crucial part of planning your holiday party is selecting the perfect festive food to serve your guests. Introducing a plethora of palette favorites at a buffet station is the easiest way to accommodate a variety of taste preferences and keep your guests mingling. Ask your employees what their holiday favorites are! Canterbury’s culinary team can help with tasty suggestions. Who could resist roast beef cooked to holiday perfection or beautiful caramel flan at the end of a delicious meal? Feliz Navidad!
Host a Classy Wintertime Theme
Once you have your menu selected and reserved the perfect setting, it’s time to create a theme. What better way to dress up your event than with a wintertime theme? Fill the food buffet and tables with elegant crystal ornaments with shades of blue and silver. Small, white holiday lights draped throughout your venue will make it feel like a winter wonderland. Add a vase of white flowers to each dining table for a special touch. There’s nothing like that wintertime feel with a hot cup of cocoa and favorite holiday treats your guests will savor at the end of a perfect evening.
Create a Warm and Cozy Get-Together
If winter wonderland is not your style, nothing says toasty and cozy like rustic-chic. Choose tablecloths with deep flannel accents highlighting deep reds and greens. Use wood slices to elevate food displays and mix evergreen and bare branches with dark, warm, cream-colored flowers as centerpieces. Tie straw bows throughout, giving your venue that rustic feel. Make the evening memorable by bringing thoughtful favors and gifts that your guests can take home. Incorporating small gestures that last will provide an experience your employees will talk about long after the holidays.
Recognize Employees & Celebrate Successes
Holiday celebrations are the perfect time to recognize your employees for their hard work and celebrate and share your company’s success. Company swag for employees is always a big hit (did someone say logo blankets?), recognizing and acknowledging a job well done and spreading that holiday cheer! Employee recognition can be achieved in different ways, from speeches congratulating employee efforts to awards for outstanding team effort and individual achievements.
