So you have to plan a corporate party, and you do not know where to start! Well, corporate parties are not as hard to plan for as one may think. The best thing about corporate parties is that you get to work with a big budget, because most companies like to “wow” the guests. The main thing to note about corporate parties is that you have to have everything a normal party has, but you also have to leave some things out. Today we are going to talk about a few tips that could make planning a corporate party easier.
First of all, entertainment is a must. The best thing that you can do is hire a DJ to host the party. They will be able to play tons of great music, and keep the atmosphere and the theme of the party happy. If you are going to have a DJ, you do need a dance floor, so keep that in mind. If the budget of the party is high enough, then you can think about renting out a band as well. When hiring a DJ, be sure that you get right to the point with them. Make sure that they can handle everything that you need them to handle, and if they can not, then get someone else to do it.
Other corporate party supplies that will be needed are food and drinks. Most of the time you are going to need two different kinds of foods. First you are going to need the finger foods. These are the foods that will be out all night long for guests to munch on. After that you will need the sit down dinner as well. The sit down dinner should have two main courses to choose from. To find out what everyone is having, they need to make note of it on the invitations that you send out. This way you can make sure that you order enough food for what everyone is having.
As far as the drinks go, this one can be a bit touchy. Most corporate parties do not want any kind of alcoholic beverages there, and some do not care. You need to check with your main office before picking out the drinks. If they allow alcohol, then some wines and light beers would be in order. If they do not, then you need to stick with things like soda, tea, water, and punch. Let's face it, punch goes with every party.
Sometimes it can be hard to have corporate party games, because the parties are so big. That is why you need another form of entertainment besides just dancing. Your best bet is to hire a comedian to do a one hour stand up for everyone. This is a great way to get people in a good mood. Although corporate party games can be hard to set up, it is possible to do some. If you are going to do party games, make sure that you have help setting them up so you do not lose your mind. The main thing that you need to worry about is food and entertainment.
