It’s that time of the year! Time for co-workers to co-mingle casually without the pressure of the office. But depending on who does your catering, your office party could be a blast or a bummer.

But before we bring the party to you, here are a few tips to ensure the perfect office holiday party!
Settle on a venue
Try having the party at the office. You’ll save a significant amount of money not having to rent a room or hall at another facility – more to spend on food and entertainment! Your employees won’t have to sit in traffic and you can get the party going earlier. And any holiday decorations you put up can be enjoyed by you and the rest of your team for the entire holiday season!
If you do decide to hold the party off premises, take a minute to think about your personal and professional networking connections. Maybe one of your clients has a large conference or convention facility they could offer at a discounted price? Maybe your office building has a penthouse or empty office space you could rent for one night? Take advantage of your existing business connections and be sure to invite your colleagues to the party.
Rethink the entertainment
Planning to hire professional entertainers? Stop and think about this for a second. While you don’t want the party to get boring, traditional entertainment, such as hired musicians, illusionists and other performers, might not be the best way to go.
An office party offers the perfect opportunity for your employees to spend some down time getting to know each other a little better. Consider the kind of entertainment where your employees can interact with each other and become a part of the “entertainment” instead of being passive observers. Here are a few ideas:
-Have everyone decorate a holiday tree
-Set up an ornament or gingerbread man decorating station
-Have an awards night mixed in with your party (casual off course)
Book Boca Raton catering in advance
Holiday party catering is crucial to the success of your office party. Don’t ask employees to participate in a pot-luck. It might sound like a good idea, but your office party should be a time for your employees to relax and enjoy themselves. You are better off placing a catering order with your favorite local restaurant – a place that everyone knows, loves and frequents. Corporate Caterers has a reputation for expert holiday party catering that won’t break your budget.
Don’t forget about the decor
You don’t have to go all out on the décor, but do have something festive. You could ask employees to decorate their own cubicles, desks or offices to set the holiday mood. A little greenery goes a long way – consider incorporating wreaths and garlands. Poinsettias – red and white – in gold wrapped containers are a festive addition and will dress up your buffet table. If you can fit an artificial tree somewhere in the office, that would be great as well. When the party starts, think about ditching the fluorescent lighting and switching to holiday lights or LED candles.
Make a difference
You could tie your office party to some special cause to make it even more meaningful. Do a raffle, a fundraiser or ask your employees to donate clothing, food or other items to a local non-profit that will distribute them to families in need.
