Office vs. different venue
Planning: With the average host set to spend about $450 on a single holiday party, it’s important to get it right. The website punchbowl took a look at this and we would love to share their infographic as it is very helpful. We will dissect this out and add some other needed information as you get to planning. Invitations should be sent out 4-6 weeks ahead of time. If food is wanted you can take your time on that and order after everyone has returned their RSVP.
Venue: With the average holiday party hosting about 48 guests it’s a great idea to find a venue that will hold everyone and keep them comfortable. You will also want to choose a venue that gets people excited to attend. Most work functions take place at work, a clubhouse, or VFW and none of those sound awe inspiring. So do your homework and plan ahead to make sure you can land a venue that will create a buzz and maximize your efforts.
