Work Christmas parties are a staple for most companies in Australia. They’re a great opportunity to forget the all the stress and boost company morale with a bit of fun.
The annual employee Christmas party can either be one to remember or one to forget so establishing a strategy and overall goal for your party will help its success.
It’s important to begin with the basics:
- Will the party have a theme?
- Where should it take place?
- How many people are coming?
- What date will the party be hosted?
- What time does the party start?
- What food and drinks will be served during the occasion?
Establishing these basics will set a plan in motion for the rest of the planning.
Stand-Up vs Sit Down
A stand-up Christmas party encourages your staff to socialise and get to know each other. Canapes and cocktails are the ideal choices for a stand-up event. For a formal affair, you may like a three-course set dinner with Christmas favourites including roast turkey, ham, cranberry sauce and crispy, roast potatoes.
Professional entertainment can make an average event into an extraordinary one. For a seated event, live bands and stage shows, with dancers, comedians or circus performers, is memorable and fun. Roving entertainers are suitable for a standing event, such a cocktail party.
