Holiday office parties are a great time to get to know your co-workers and participate in a relaxing and social event that doesn’t take place during work-hours. Office parties are also a time for employee appreciation and showing your co-workers that you care and acknowledge their hard work. Organizing an office party doesn’t have to be difficult, especially with an Orlando event planning company, but there are a few things to keep in mind when planning your party this holiday season!

1. Make sure you schedule the party at least a week in advance! If you end up scheduling a party a day or two before the event, more than likely you will have many people skipping out because they already have travel plans or other parties to attend.

2. If you have the option to get out of the office, do it! Try throwing the party at a co-worker’s house, or even at the park. Everyone tends to think of the office as a place of work, and throwing a party there may not live up to its potential!

3. Plan it out! Make it more exciting and unique than just some soda and pizzas. If you’re on a budget, try having co-workers bring a dish for the party to share with everyone. This is a great option if this is a casual holiday, otherwise you can hire an event planner or caterer and plan a menu that fits your budget.

4. Will there be entertainment or is it purely social? You can always plan to rent a poker table, an arcade, or even karaoke to keep your co-workers entertained. There also the option of hiring a band or DJ, or creating a mixtape yourself!
