Start Planning Your Holiday Party Now

September 11th, 2017 by Brittney Settlage

WOW! Events can smell it now, the scent of pumpkin flavored everything, the crisp refreshing California breeze, and the spectacular changes in color. Fall is creeping around the corner and WOW! Events knows what that means – The holiday season is calling our names. Even though it won’t get much cooler for some time, we are excited for this upcoming fall because of all the fun it brings as the end of the year rapidly approaches us. This time of year is perfect for corporate catering & event planning to flourish. The best way to boost morale and celebrate end of the year successes is by throwing a party for all your employees and their families. There is no better time than the end of a year to show appreciation for all the hard work they’ve done, as well as encourage them for the upcoming tasks that lay ahead in the new year. If you plan on hosting a Halloween bash, winter wonderland appreciation night, jolly holiday party, or a rockin’ New Year’s Eve celebration for your clients, vendors or employees, now is the time to put your planning pants on.

Reasons to Start Planning Early

More availability: The earlier you start planning, the more options you have. You don’t want to find out that the venue you fell in love with has already been booked and be left with the “typical boring venue”, do you?

Relieve stress: Planning a party is a lot of work and takes a lot of time. Starting as early as possible will allow you and take your time in making decisions.

Invite your guests: If you know the details (What, When, Where) you can get the word out early. The holiday season is a busy time for most. To ensure good attendance let everyone know about it so they can plan accordingly. Securing a date at an unique venue should be done prior to this.

Set Yourself Up for Success

Planning for a big event like this can be difficult, before submersing yourself into color schemes, catering and decorations, take a step back and make sure you have these crucial questions answered:

  1. What are the goals of the event?
  2. Approximately how large is the guest list?
  3. What type of people will be attending?
  4. Dates that will work to host the event?
  5. What time of day will the party be held?
  6. Do you have a specific location or type of venue in mind for the event?
  7. Will you need outside help (vendors, caterers, planners, entertainment…etc.)?
  8. What is your budget for this event?

The information that you compile will set the tone for all later decisions, so the more you know early on the better. Thinking through some of the more trivial aspects of your event will help you set goals and build the rest of your plans on a sturdy foundation.
