First things first, you need to obtain the party budget from the company’s management. Review the budget and establish how much you are going to spend on certain things. Prioritize and see what the necessary things are that are needed in the party.
Working alone on such a huge project can be hard. Make a planning committee that can help you set up the whole plan. Inform your co-workers from the company and ask them for help. Make a brochure which reads that you need a few people who can help you out in planning a party. Moreover, provide a suggestion box for all the people who will be joining you in the party.
Decide the formality level of the party. Always take the budget and the atmosphere under consideration. The party guests should feel comfortable. The workplace atmosphere is not exactly what such parties require. You need to set the right mood and for that the party planner should know what to give to the guests. You can opt for renting a place for the party so that the people can dress at their best.
Choose the right theme for the party. It’s true that you are throwing a Christmas party, but this is a little more formal and people will be wearing formal clothes. You can opt for themes such as 12 days of Christmas, or even Winter Wonderland where people can wear warmer clothes. Make sure that your theme does not make things difficult for people who have different beliefs.
Start shopping for party accessories. Always keep your budget in mind and buy things which are suitable for the party. The planning committee can also donate a few decorations to the party and can take them back after the party. However, make a list of things which everyone brings so that you can give them back to the person who has brought them. Moreover, choose a menu which is affordable. Always make sure that you are accommodating people who are vegetarians or even diabetic.
Pick a suitable date and location; something which is feasible for everyone who will be at the party.
