Planning Your Work’s Christmas Party

Planning the Christmas party for your workplace can be stressful. There’s no room for last-minute antics here and everyone will be relying on you for information.

For our latest post, we have put together some top tips to help your party planning go that bit smoother.

Date and Time

When planning the Christmas party for your workplace, time is of the essence to get the best spot in town. Remember that most other businesses in the area are likely to be doing the same thing around the same time as you. Book early and avoid disappointment. Many restaurants will put on a set menu at Christmas time and everyone will need to send back their selections within a certain time frame.

If you are planning for several departments, be sure to check when everyone’s last day is – no one wants to have to come into work once they have broken up for the Christmas holidays.

Work with Feedback

Although you probably won’t be able to cater for everyone’s ideas, asking for feedback about the previous Christmas party is a great way to change things up and add something fresh into the mix that others will enjoy.


If you want the party planning to go smoothly, make sure you give everyone enough notice if you want them to get back to you with information. Additionally, you’ll want to give people enough time to get their outfits and transport sorted – these stresses can put a dampener on the mood if they aren’t properly considered.
