The holiday season will soon be in full swing, so it is time to begin planning your next Christmas party on San Francisco Bay if you have not already done so. Empress Events can help you make this year’s event one your friends and family are sure to remember. If you are planning a business Christmas party, your employees will enjoy a different venue than the office conference room.
Date – Of course, since it is a Christmas party, you will want to get the party date set as soon as possible to ensure you actually get to HAVE a Christmas party. The dates closest to Christmas book up fast, so the sooner you get the date set, the better. Be flexible, however, in case the dates closest to Christmas are already taken.
Budget – No matter if you plan to have 10 or 100 people at your party and whether the partygoers are family or co-workers, the next step after choosing and setting the date is to consider how much you have to spend. Having an established budget will let you see where you need to spend money, will help you decide which things are necessities or wishes and it will also help you know how much you can spend on food per person. Fortunately, Empress Events offers a variety of services that will fit every budget.
Food – Allowing Empress Events to cater your Christmas party is the easiest way for the party planner to enjoy the party, as well. You may also want to consider an outside caterer or have a pot luck-style party with everyone bringing an appetizer or dessert. While you are thinking about food, do not forget the beverages. Both Empress Events yachts have a full bar for those who are interested.
Guests – Once you know how much you can spend, it will make it easier to determine whom to invite to the party. Obviously, if you are having a company party, this may include having a party for the entire company or just specific departments. If you have a large party, up to 149 guests, The Empress is the right yacht for your party. Smaller, more intimate parties of less than 50 will enjoy partying on The Avalon.
Theme – Not all parties have to have a theme, but since you are having a Christmas Party on San Francisco Bay, why not? You could have an “Ugliest Christmas Sweater”, Christmas Cookie Swap or Christmas Carol Karaoke theme party. Use your imagination, or get other creative people to come up with a unique theme that will make the party even more festive.
It really is not difficult to plan the perfect Christmas party. Be sure to consider these five items and you are sure to have a wonderful party your guests will enjoy. The staff at Empress Events is available to help you plan and will work within your allotted budget. Make this year’s Christmas party on San Francisco Bay one everyone will remember for years to come.
