How to Plan a Stress-Free Office Party

Having a party in your workplace is the best way to encourage employees to relax, let their hair down, have fun, and be better acquainted with their colleagues. However, like all types of events, planning an office party can be daunting to some extent. If you are not an experienced party planner, you could end up stressed on the first day of planning.

At Ardanien Entertainment, our team is always eager to help our clients so we put together a few tips to help you plan a stress-free office party.

  • Don't do it alone. Work with a team of reliable colleagues who can be trusted with important tasks and provide you with advice. Together, you will be able to decide on the venue, caterer, entertainment and other party requirements.
  • Booking early is key. It's a good idea to secure your supplier weeks before the designated date. If you are planning a large-scale event, it would be best to look for a venue and caterer 6 months in advance. This way, you will find plenty of choices and better deals.
  • When it comes to setting a budget, be generous. The office party will serve as a reminder for the employees that their hard work is always appreciated. Don't be stingy, but make sure to set realistic expectations.
  • Keep in mind that having too much food and beverage is better than having too little. If you run out of dishes and drinks early on, the party could become less satisfying and memorable for everyone. Make sure that you and the caterer are in tune in terms of the amount of food and drink as well as consider adding a little extra.
  • Book high-quality entertainers and equipment. A stand-up comedian, magician, video game console, karaoke machine or DJ will surely put a smile on the employees' faces and make the occasion much more memorable. If you are interested in a DJ, look no further than Ardanien Entertainment. We are a leading provider of high level, professional DJ services that are customised to our clients' needs.
