  • Theme party – Why not set up a theme party this year? It will add more fun and colors to your party. Theme can be Halloween or retro theme, and sure to involve everyone.

  • Catering– Decide what kind of meal and starters to be served. Will it be a buffet? Or a sit down meal? Whatever it is, you should decide in advance. Hire a catering company for food and beverages. Make sure when to serve the drinks, refreshments and snacks. Serve your guests a welcome drink. One such AWESOME catering company in Melbourne is iQ catering Heidelberg.
  • Location – The venue should be very well known to all the colleagues. The venue’s management should ensure that adequate space is available for parking. Seating and table arrangements need to be convenient. Look for the other requirements such as dance floor, lights, music and cleaning services.

Here are other important points to be considered

  • Everyone should be available on the date decided for the Christmas party.
  • Make sure all your office mates enjoy and participate in the party
  • Communicate the theme party before, so everyone can have their attire ready.
  • Set the limit for alcohol. Though alcohol adds fun to the parties, it should be limited.

The success of an event is not only dependent on the organizer but also on the subordinates who are attending the party. Always remember that despite being the organizer, you have the license to enjoy yourself and actively participate in all events.
