You want everyone to enjoy your Christmas party so try and consider that you could have different age ranges and personality types that could all want something different. You can’t please everyone but you can do your best to offer variety – for example if you are creating a party atmosphere then consider having somewhere quiet for less raucous guests.
Give your guests plenty of notice
You don’t need to have all those finer details sorted before you invite your guests and Christmas is a busy time so get in there early. A simple email with a save the date will ensure your party is booked into everyone’s diaries.
Consider the music
If you are hiring a DJ for your Christmas party then think about the type of music you will play. Traditional Christmas party songs and chart music is likely to be your best bet for pleasing the masses.
Think about the menu
You don’t have to go for a traditional Christmas dinner – think about your team and what they would enjoy. Also make sure you ask about dietary requirements in plenty of time.
Make use of the events team
Are you booking a venue with a dedicated events team? Make use of them – they are the professionals after all! They will be able to advise you on everything from the decor to timings.
