Holiday Themed Event Alternatives

Mandy Volpe - Monday, November 28, 2016

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.

Greenery focus:
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.

Color choice:
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?
