How to Plan The Perfect Office Christmas Function and Give Clients Great Gifts
That crazy time that comes around every year is upon us yet again. How festive could it really be if it leaves you with a few more grey hairs? Thankfully, the Last Man Standing team is all too familiar with the ins and outs of planning an office Christmas function. It may seem like a daunting task at first, but we can help.
Planning The Actual Event
There are many things to think about when you plan any event. A Christmas party is particularly challenging, because it may need you to think outside the box. You don’t want you guest slipping off early (or into a mild coma) before the dance floor is even open. Here are some things to remember while you plan:
1. Pick a theme – this may seem like a trivial point to dwell on, but it will be the cornerstone that guides most of your other decisions. It could be anything, really, so get creative.
2. Location, location – summer’s pretty much here, so you may want to consider an outdoor venue or at least one with good air conditioning. You might also want to take your theme into consideration when you choose a venue.
3. Discuss a date that’ll suit the team – narrow down some possible dates and do a simple online survey. Email it to everyone and use the responses to decide on a date that as many people as possible can attend. Send out themed invitations once set in stone.
4. Decide on catering – look into a menu that will accommodate everyone and perhaps even complement the theme.
5. Arrange for appropriate entertainment – from live entertainment and group activities to getting a local DJ or a karaoke machine, this can make or break the event. Plan ahead to avoid disappointment.
Gifts For Your Clients
Chances are, your clients won’t be at your office party, but there are simple ways to make them feel special this Christmas too. Thoughtful gifts are a great way to remind them you value their business. You can go for simple branded notebooks, mugs, pens, apparel, baked goods or a special note.
