Christmas Party season is just around the corner and although many venues begin filling up before the summer holidays have even started, there are still many options available to ensure that you and your colleagues can enjoy some festive fun at your Office Christmas Party!
To help you plan the perfect‚ office Christmas party, here at Carden Park we have put together some top tips to take the stress out of organising the Christmas bash!
Don‚„t Break the Budget – Will your company foot the bill for the whole party, make a contribution or does everyone pay for themselves? Whatever the plan, have some discussion about what everyone is happy to pay and then you can look at some options within the agreed price range. With Christmas Party night packages‚ from ‚£32.00 per person you can enjoy a delicious three course dinner before dancing the night away to our resident DJ.
Decisions, Decisions – Do you party at lunchtime or prefer an evening event? Do you want a traditional party night or perhaps more of a‚ team building/experience event? ‚ If you‚„re looking for an exclusive venue for 50 guests, ask Carden‚„s events team about parties in our Clubhouse. Once you have some options for the type of event you want, circulate a few dates and options to your colleagues. Three/Four options should offer something for everybody but don’t feel bad about those that don’t get their first choice, you’ll never please everyone!
All in the Detail – Once you have booked the venue, send a save-the date message to everyone who has indicated that they want to come along. If necessary detail instructions for paying deposits and dates for confirming food/activity choices. Finalise plans for any special elements you will include in the evening, whether it‚„s a welcome cocktail on arrival or a special awards presentation or secret santa. The dedicated events team at Carden are always on hand to help ensure your event runs smoothly.
Have a Ball – With all the planning taken care of it‚„s time to join in the fun, put on your dancing shoes and pop open a bottle of festive fizz, we can highly recommend Carden Old Gold sparkling wine! ‚ You may have planned your own party theme or entertainment but at Carden the fun begins with novelty props in the middle of the evening, a photobooth for a complimentary souvenir of your night and of course, dancing the night away.
And Relax… – As the final rendition of ‚ËœMerry Christmas Everybody‚„ plays out on the dance floor you may have organised transport home for your partygoers or decided to extend the festivities with an overnight stay at the venue. For guests at Carden Party Nights, rooms are available from ‚£109.00 per room per night and include a full English breakfast the next day and use of our newly refurbished leisure facilities. If you‚„re party is on a weekday, remember that sore heads are likely to have an impact on productivity and attendance in the office the day after so make sure there are plenty of festive treats and coffee!
