5 Things To Do When Organising A Corporate Christmas Bash- Sophie Wright Catering

Posted by Liz Seyi on December 26th, 2022

Christmas parties are great fun – or they tend to be for most people, anyway – but they can also be stressful, particularly for those tasked with arranging the details. Organising them can take time and effort, especially if you’re working in a large company.

Fortunately, we have put together the top five things you need to remember to do when arranging your corporate Christmas bash. 

Ranging from dress code dilemmas to corporate catering in the UK,  read on for all you need to know, and follow our tips to help ensure everyone has a good time at your event.

  • Book, plan, and announce early on

We get it – nobody wants to hear the dreaded “C” word in July, but the earlier you plan, book and announce the date for your party, the easier your life will be. 

Remember that there are a lot of corporations that will be looking to secure a venue on very similar dates, and leaving it too late could mean that you miss out. If nothing else, get the venue in place, secure a date, and let people add to their diaries.

  • Add a dress code 

A party is a special occasion, and a chase for people to let their hair down – literally. Throw out the corporate dress code for a night, and encourage guests to dress in their finest and enjoy the chance to bring out the sparkles and sequins. 

  • Don’t forget the food

Food is a crucial element of any party, and there are various highly respected businesses that specialise in corporate catering in the UK. Make sure you have a good spread of everyone’s favourites, and cater for a range of preferences and requirements to keep everyone happy.

  • Decide on drinks

 After food, drinks are a key part of any evening. Decide whether you are going to include a fully paid bar, or have guests buy their own drinks. Wine and fizz for tables and toasts always goes down a treat!

  • Don’t forget to decorate!

 Christmas is a time of sparkle and fun, so feel free to go ‘all out’ when it comes to the decorations – this is a time when tacky reigns supreme, and nothing is too much.

 Do you want to make sure you get every detail of your corporate catering in the UK just right, whatever the occasion? If so, you are very welcome to reach out to us to get the discussion started about how we can help make your upcoming event memorable in all the finest ways.
