HOW TO PLAN A ROCKING STAFF PARTY

With that in mind, the next step would be to get on with a theme and ideas for the office party. Easier said than done. With an endless supply of ideas on social media platforms such as Pinterest and Instagram – it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the many avenues one could take.

Therefore, as the party experts that we are, we’ve seen it all and the tales to tell. We’ve come up with a helpful guideline to planning a rocking office party never to be forgotten.

BIG DECISIONS FIRST

Before you begin planning, it’s important that you have a set budget in mind. It’s no fun getting hyped about ideas that aren’t within the budget. Your first step to a rocking office party is to sit down with your boss and decide on a budget.

PICK A THEME

Another very important, primary step is to decide on a theme for the party. Gather around a group of people from the office and bounce off ideas for the theme of the party. It’s essential that you get input from others as it will give you a general idea of what would make the office party a rocking one.

PICK A DATE

Once you’ve decided on a theme, your next step would be to settle a date and venue. When it comes to choosing a venue, this could be particular easier as you have a theme already. With the date, it’s pretty easy. Study the calendar and consider the flow of events – particularly if you plan on the party happening of the year during the festive period.

LIST RESPONSIBILITIES AND DELEGATE

With so many responsibilities you’ll need a team. Gather a few of your colleagues who can help with the responsibilities. Don’t be afraid to trust and delegate the responsibilities as the day draws closer, you’ll find that you need those extra hands.

CHOOSE VENDORS

It’s not a party without food and fancy drinks. Foods and drinks are an important part of the party. And if you were thinking about going the DIY way, you could get it done but that means you’ll have less time on your hands. Let the professionals do it for you. Same goes for the bar. Hire a mobile bar that you can have customised and had it fit right into your theme. With a bar, you’ll know that everyone at the party is being served signature drinks, which will add to the overall mood of the office party. Your guests will thank you for it.

Be sure to get some help or let utilise the expertise and do it all for you. All you need to do is name it and it’s done. Let the professionals do it.

CONSIDER ENTERTAINMENT

If you want to plan a rocking staff party one of the most important aspects that you should plan for is entertainment. While you would like ‘colleagues that have never mingled to chat away, music, and the dancefloor might just be the magnifying element that brings everyone together.

There are a few modes of entertainment that you can bring to the party such as hiring a band, karaoke or a DJ to hype the environment and get people feeling festive.
