When was the last time you attended a company party? Were you bored to tears?
A lot of times, people go to a company party simply because they have to. If you ask them what they prefer, they would probably want to stay at home.
This isn’t because they don’t have friends at work. Many people do hang out with work friends in the evenings and get a couple of drinks. But when it comes to a company party, they just don’t expect it to be fun. And most of the time, it’s not.
Throw An Awesome Company Party
What can you learn from this? How do you make an office party less boring?
- Casual Day: Most people go to the office party directly from work. So why not make it a casual day? This way, everyone will be relaxed in their jeans and summer dresses and this will help them to have a good time.
- Give the Higher Ups a Day Off: This doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be invited to the party. It just means, maybe they shouldn’t be organizing it. Let the organizational work be done by the employees who work under them. This way, you won’t be imposing the views of management on the workers.
- Make it Colorful: Having a lot of colors in the décor makes people feel like partying. So make sure your draperies, table cloths, crockery etc. are on the colorful side. You can also get a piñata full of confetti. With Party Time Rental, you know that availability of products is not a problem. We can often get things you want but aren’t on our website.
- Do Silly Things: Sure, it’s a corporate event, but does everyone really have to act corporate? Why not pin the tail on the donkey, bob for apples or have a three-legged race? At the very least, play some bingo.
- Swag Bags: Everyone likes to have something to take home after a party, even if it’s just a few pieces of chocolate. If you want to get creative, you can throw in some costume jewelry for the ladies and eau de cologne samples for the men.
