Tips for Surviving Holiday Celebration Planning

Although most of us are thinking turkey, the inevitable is coming; holiday parties.  And now is the time to start planning and making those arrangements.  Whether you’re looking for a private function space to host a memorable workplace event, or searching for catering in Nashua for your family gathering, the team at Stella Blu has your holiday celebrations covered.  With these helpful hints, you can be sure your holiday event is a success.

 

Book now

This time of year gets busy, and fast.  By booking your holiday now you’ll not only secure the venue of choice, but you’ll provide your employees with ample time to keep the evening free.  Don’t’ wait until the last minute and get stuck in a place you wouldn’t have otherwise visited!

 

Create a menu for everyone

By having a diverse menu selection, you’re ensuring that everyone can enjoy themselves at the celebration.  From food allergies to sensitivities, many restaurants and caterers are able to customize food selections with enough notice.  For example, a typical meal selection will include some sort of pasta dish.  This year, why not make it two? One traditional pasta entrée and one gluten-free.

 

Create a signature beverage

One of the biggest concerns at a workplace holiday celebration is how to handle alcohol consumption.  Of course you want to have alcohol available, but keeping limits and etiquette in line is a delicate balance.  By working with your chosen venue, you can control the availability to your employees.  Create a menu that includes a selection of white and red wine, as well as beer, and one signature beverage.  This will create a fun alternative while leaving the alcohol choice in your ballpark.

 

Coordinate a gift swap

However you choose to exchange gifts in the workplace, it’s a fun way to bring everyone together.  A Yankee Swap or Secret Santa is the most common, but with a little creativity you can come up with your own unique way to exchange gifts.  One important element of a gift swap is to set a limit to avoid awkward situations.  Keep the cost low enough so that everyone can participate without feeling stressed too.  Another good idea is to create a theme for the swap, again, to avoid any awkward situations. Remember, a gift swap is to bring everyone together in a fun way!
