Tips to throw the best end of year party
Year-end functions can sometimes be a hit and miss affair – it’s hard to please everyone and often expectations around the party are over the top.
If you’re looking to shake things up or simply organize an amazing function that will be the talk of the water-cooler for the next year – here’s how you can impress your family and give your friends an unforgettable party, read on our suggestions here:
Create a Party Checklist
A party checklist is a great way to get organized when you are throwing your year-end party. Start by thinking of everything you will need; location, food, supplies, decorations, holiday party entertainment…and the list may go on!
Whatever it is you think you may need, organize it into your checklist. Then, come up with a timeline that will give you a good idea of when things should be completed by and a list of stakeholders you will rely on to help you accomplish each task on your list. Not only will this help you to stay more organized, but knowing that you have a clear idea of what needs to be completed when and who’s responsible for what will help you relieve some of that stress.
You also can use helpful plenty of party planner apps available that can help you create an organized checklist, include the Pro Party Planner, Wunderlist, and BIg Night Dinner Party Planner. Find the app that best suits your needs.
Timing an event is crucial, not only for the event organizer having enough planning time but also for attendees being able to arrange their work ahead to attend. Besides, holding the event either on a weekday, weekend or even in the festive season is what you should consider as well.
Preparing a Budget
A budget or financial plan with estimated numbers should be included in your detailed plan. This is a helpful tool for you to keep track of the expense from the very first planning day and to have a general view of the huge picture.
First, think about how upscale you would like the party to be, how many people will be attending, and any kind of themes or activities you would like to incorporate. From there, you can get estimates on locations, food, supplies, decorations, and whatever else you may need.
Find the Right Location
When it comes to location, you may be lucky enough to have an office that’s fun enough, and big enough, so that you can just throw the party there. But it is likely that most of your co-workers spend between 40-50 hours a week working at that space!! So you can find another special place! Find a place that is convenient for everyone to travel to. Somewhere near the office or house may be best.
Also, make sure your location has ample parking and is suited for the event you are having there. If you are having food, you will want to get a location that has a kitchen.
Of course, you can also opt for a location that does not supply these amenities, but, if that is the case, you should think about the logistics and costs of acquiring them yourself.
There are a number of resources online that can help you to find that perfect event space. Peerspace.com is a great example and there are many web sites that might be helpful as well. Browse around to find one that can provide you with the perfect location.
Get Food Everyone Will Love
|Food is a huge consideration at any holiday party. You may hold your party at a restaurant, bring in catering, hire a few food trucks to show up at your space, or even have a potluck where everyone in the office brings in an item that is homemade. Whatever you decide, there will be some planning involved. |
It is important to remember that many of your guests will have dietary restrictions. It’s a good idea to canvas the office to find out the kind of foods they would like to eat as well as the ones they are restricted from eating. Then work with whoever will be providing the food to make sure there are options available for everyone.
Choosing a theme for your year-end party
Choosing a theme for your year-end party can set the tone for the entire night. This occasion is a fun and exciting time all about reflecting on the past year while looking forward to achieving new success. Your party’s style should match this special sentiment from start to finish with a theme that spreads good cheer.
These helpful tips should ensure that you will be able to organize a great party that everyone will enjoy. Anything you feel we may have left out? Feel free to leave your suggestions in the comment section below!
