How to Host the Ultimate Year-End Party

Updated: May 25, 2020

2019 has zoomed by, and it’s almost time to start planning your year-end event! If you’re in charge of organising your firm’s annual year-end party, it may seem very daunting and overwhelming. Beyond the budget, venue, catering and invitations, there are so many things to consider. That’s why we’ve set up this list of things that will help you host the best year-end party yet!  

Show your appreciation

A year-end event offers co-workers the opportunity to relax, reminisce about completed projects and connect with one another. Show your employees that you appreciate their commitment and work by handing out prizes. Reward your best-performers, the employee with the best spirit and anything that will show your team your appreciation. Small things can go far in showing your team you care, keeping them motivated and committed to your company.

You can even have everyone vote for some light-hearted awards like “Office klutz” or “Most likely to bring in doughnuts for the office”!

Theme it up!

Zany and bright or classic and elegant: a theme is a fun and easy way to tie your event together. A clear theme helps guests decide on what to wear, and can serve as an easy ice-breaker.

Keep it light-hearted

Your company holiday party is an excellent way for employees to unwind, get social and get rid of some of the years’ stress! After a year of hard work, it’s worthwhile to let your team cut loose and have some fun. Don’t fill up the evening with lengthy speeches or reports on performance; keep it light and casual!

Think outside the box when it comes to the venue

While it might be tempting to keep the office celebrations within the confines of your office, resist the urge to host the event within the business premises. A new venue will provide a welcome change of scenery and make your event much more special.

And ultimately, go professional

If your firm can afford it, get the help of a professional events firm. An event’s firm will take care of all of the details and stress, creating an incredible event that is sure to delight all attending!
