With summer long gone and the weather taking a rather tragic turn, the Christmas party season can provide a glimmer of hope in the bleak autumn/winter months. However, as many of the office managers and employers busily organising festive events will find, planning the perfect Christmas party, and one that is to be enjoyed rather than endured, is easier said than done.
As a leading provider of Christmas entertainment, Kennedy is getting booked up fast for December with many of the corporate clients he has entertained at conferences and other events, as well as those new to Christmas party planning, calling on him for help. But what really makes a Christmas party extra special? Read on to find out…
Start planning early
As the saying goes ‘planning makes perfect’ and the same sentiment applies when planning an unforgettable Christmas do! Even now the very best venues, caterers and corporate entertainment acts are getting booked up fast (take it from Kennedy!), and whilst you may feel like winding down after a long summer of hard work, now isn’t the time to rest of your laurels. Get organised as early as possible and make sure everyone has the date firmly planted in their diaries.
Do think theme
Opting for a Christmas theme is all a bit cliché, but a theme can in fact focus your planning activities and make for a more coherent event. Get creative when it comes to thinking up an original theme, you can even get your colleagues involved if you’re lacking imagination. Choosing a theme for your event can also help you plan other aspects of your night, including your menu and entertainment.
Entertainment is such an integral part of a Christmas party, whether you are a small company organising a more intimate event or a large organisation wishing to bring together a number of departments or branches. Whilst there’s no doubt choosing a DJ will bring some festive joy, particularly in the early hours when spirits are high, thinking outside the box will ensure your event is talked about at the office cooler long after Christmas has been and gone.
