I know… it’s July, but have you started thinking about your Greensboro corporate holiday party yet? Trust me, the festive season will be here before you know it! Don’t stress, there’s still time to plan a soirée that will keep your employees talking and excited for the next one. Corporate holiday parties can have a reputation for being a bit… dull… but there are so many ways you can get creative and create some real holiday spirit within your co-workers!
A holiday party is an opportunity to get your team together, get to know each other better in a more relaxed environment, and let everyone know how much they are appreciated for their hard work. What exactly makes a party memorable? These ideas and tips can help you create a company holiday party that everyone will enjoy.
Consider a theme for your event such as Winter Wonderland, Ugly Christmas Sweater, Rustic Woodlands, Christmas Masquerade Ball or Santa’s Workshop. Create an amazing guest experience by tying the theme into all the details.
Choose a color scheme. A classic black-and-white color scheme is classy and gives your guests an excuse to get dressed up for a special night out. Red-and-white is also a fun alternative that celebrates the festive season.
Lighting can really enhance the look of your event! Ask us about uplighting, edison lights, gobos, string lights and more.
Food is such an important factor in any type of party or event. Do you want a more formal feel? Then consider a plated dinner with table-side wine service. If you’re looking to get guests to mix and mingle, then plan for a buffet or heavy hors d’oeuvres stations. Add fun accents like a hot chocolate or fresh apple cider bar with seasonal mix ins. Don’t forget dessert with classics such as cheesecake or a variety of holiday themed cookies and pastries. We love partnering with you to create custom menus for all kinds of social occasions!
“We really had a good time at the holiday party. Everything was absolutely perfect. The food was awesome and the employees keep raving about how good it was. We feel like it was probably about the best company party we’ve ever had. You did a fabulous job coordinating the whole thing and it was great working with you. I will be in touch for next year!”

"Jaime, I would like to send high compliments to the staff you assembled for that evening. Everyone proclaimed the food selections as delicious! I must add that all the staff, even down to the security person, were on top of their game. If I have the opportunity to host something like this in the future, I will be in touch. Meanwhile, I will spread the word to friends who weren’t able to attend. Revolution Mill Events is a beautiful venue and maintains a high standard for any type of event, and a high quality of food from Pepper Moon Catering. Bravo to all." - Joy, Livingbrush Body Painting

A FEW EXTRA TIPS
Friday and Saturday evenings in December always book up fast, so you’ll want to secure those dates well in advance. Are you working with a limited budget? Select a weekday or consider a January “Kick off the New Year Party” when prices are usually lower.
