As an event planner, you have been tasked with planning a corporate Holiday party without being too focused on one theme over another. Here are a few themed party ideas without being too specific towards one holiday over another.
Use poinsettias or olive garland to create a beautiful and elegant centerpiece. Also incorporate these elements into the welcome tables in the lobby or the podium.
Steer away from red and veer towards the blues or silver themed decoration. Utilize candles and twinkle lights for a white glow around the room.
Incorporate the seasonal weather:
Offer guests an unusual atmosphere with snow and ice. Elements that showcase the weather such as an ice sculpture or snow themed photo booth backdrop will certainly entertain your guests without being solely focused on the holiday season.
What additions would you add to this list that you have successfully tried for your events?
Sodexo Conferencing properties believe that events should be memorable. We enjoy seeing how our properties are inspired to create unique dining experiences for guests. Check out the recent set-up for Chase Center on the Riverfront. They incorporated Chinese take-out boxes and wok stations to heighten the culinary experience for the Delaware Antique Show.
Last weekend the team at the Chase Center hosted the wedding for Mr. & Mrs. Greg Magee. Congratulations to the couple on their special day. The Sodexo family would like to wish the couple a lifetime of marital happiness. Here is a glimpse into their catered reception.
Are you looking for ways to infuse the theme of fall into your event over the next two months? Here are a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing.
Take the typical movie theater snack to the next level. Offer multiple varieties of popcorn flavors such as caramel, white cheddar, or kettle corn. Then have different toppings that guests can use to amp up their snack. Toppings could include candy corn, chocolate chips, or sprinkles.
Campfires and S’mores
Campfires inspire community and relaxation. Invite your guests into networking opportunities with campfires strategically placed near gathering points of your meeting. Offer a snack such as hot cider or s’mores to keep your guests lingering around the fire even longer.
Pumpkins are a festive way to bring in the fall months to the décor. Mix white pumpkins with eucalyptus leaves and you have an elegant centerpiece that transitions well between fall, Halloween, and Thanksgiving.
