Planning Tips for a Fun Holiday Party

The annual office holiday party is an opportunity to strengthen your team’s ties and create new ones. If you think that putting together a successful and fun event is time-consuming, think again! Below are some suggestions on how to host a holiday party that will be remembered for many holidays to come.

Unwind and Book Hotel Rooms

If you are planning on holding a party in Long Beach, it might be difficult for your colleagues to return home. Why not treat them to a night in a hotel? The Allegria Hotel, offers the option of booking our function rooms and adding a hotel package for your guests. Nothing beats partying by night and relaxing together over breakfast the next day.

Pick a Theme or Choose a Title for the Party

Although a holiday party is a theme in itself, there is a whole world of sub-themes to choose from. This is a good idea if you want your colleagues to let their hair down. You can encourage holiday costumes, movie stars, period costumes, and more.

Regardless of your theme, make sure the venue is beautifully decorated. Whether you want casual, rustic or lavish and glittering decor, the event team at The Allegria can help with suggestions. Even if you don’t want to spend too much of your budget on decorations, adding candles, table centers or quality place settings are nice touches.

Organize Employee Awards or Raffles

Once the party is underway, take things to a different level by organizing employee awards or raffles. Rewarding employees for their accomplishments is a perfect way to show them that they are valued. If you prefer to give away random presents, hold a raffle or put together a quiz night.
