How to Plan an Office Party

Posted by on April 10, 2019 in News Flash with 0 Comments

Even the people you work with at the office want to treat themselves to some party or other amidst the hectic work schedule. The shock comes in when you are also in the excitement for a party with your co-workers only for the boss to pick you as the party planner yet you have no clue where to start. Here are a few tips to guide you as you plan your next office party.

Decide on the venue

The party could be held at the office building or in an external venue. The main determining factor is the budget you are working with and the number of people expected to attend. Since it is not courteous to ask how many people will be attending, you can instead go with the number of everyone in the office, and if any plus ones are allowed, multiply the number by two.

Do your research on party venues Manchester to find the appropriate site for the party, putting into consideration your budget and availability of the venues. It would help to pick out a few party venues just in case one of them is not available at your set date so you can have another option.

Pick out the date

If the date is not provided to you by the office, then you need to pick out a date that works for everyone involved or at least most of those involved. This can be difficult at times as everybody seems to have their own particular opinions on what day is perfect and they don’t always match. It is also crucial that you ensure the date chosen works with the venue. Before making the big announcement, ensure that the site is still available during your preferred date. It can be rather embarrassing to make the announcement to change the date.

Pick the catering service

The first thing for this step is for you to find out if there is anybody with special food requirements, like allergies. Here, you also have a choice to make – you can either do it yourself or hire a catering service. Hiring caterers will make it easier for you. But if you decide on doing it yourself, then you will have much to do.

For beverages, sample out a few drinks before deciding. You don’t have to know everyone’s tastes. It’s free booze after all, and people tend to be less selective. Don’t forget to include water and soft drinks as well.

Have entertainment planned up

You could work with the venue provider to supply the entertainment for the party. Music is the most basic form of entertainment, but if you can, you could include a little bit more such as group games, acrobats, etc. This will be primarily influenced by the theme of your party, the venue, and your budget.

Once you have the significant details of the party – venue, theme, and date –, it is now safe to send out the invitations. Make sure your invite is comprehensive, bearing all the necessary details. This will save you a lot of questions.
