Company holiday parties can be a ball. Everyone gathering together, talking and laughing without the stress of the workday resting on them. But it can also be extremely stressful for the one planning it. Follow these 5 easy steps to planning your company parties in Staten Island for a seamless process.
1. Pick a date
Pick a party date early on. Venues get booked up quickly during the holidays and your employees are probably busy with a ton of holiday affairs. You want to pick a date that most of your employees can attend. Weekends can be tough for people with other holiday plans, so some companies choose to host their party in early January after the holiday rush!
2. Pick a venue
Finding a catering hall in Staten Island can be difficult near the holidays. You can can make it easy with a full-service venue like Eve Ultra Lounge. We offer full-service parties from planning, housing, and catering your event inside our hall. Using Eve Ultra Lounge can also reduce a ton of stress in planning your party. We offer full lighting and music packages so you don’t even have to hire an AV company. After all, what is a party without music!
3. Choose a caterer
Luckily, Eve Ultra Lounge has in house caterers and can help you plan and pull off your entire meal. Remember, not everyone eats the same way so plan a plethora of different foods to share with the staff. There may also be food allergies so it’s best to avoid common allergens like anything with peanuts. This is also the time you will choose your bar. Will it be an open bar or beer and wine? Create your own specialty drink menu. Or add on a cappuccino bar if you are not offering liquor.
4. Choose your decorations
Your full-service catering venue, like Eve Ultra Lounge, should handle all of the decorations for your company party, but anything can be special ordered to put together your own vision. Try not to put together anything denominational though. Go with themes like a winter wonderland with snow on the ground and a sleigh for employees to take pictures in.
5. Pick the entertainment.
Most parties have dinner and music. Pretty simple and straightforward. But if you have your company party in Staten Island at Eve Ultra Lounge you can choose from any entertainment you want to bring in or go with one of their extras packages or both. How cool would it be to add a LED CO2 gun to your dance floor shooting cold air over your guests? Or shoot out a confetti blast cannon or balloon drop during the last couple dances. You can even make the effect of walking on clouds by adding a cloudy smoke to your entrances or dance floor. Add an LED dance robot to a supercharged dancefloor. And no party would be complete without a photo booth for your employees to take pictures or a custom backdrop with your company’s logo on it for your employees to take pictures in front of. Add on a red carpet for your employees to make their way down as they go to the best party of their year. And if a dancefloor isn’t the kind of entertainment you’re looking for Eve Ultra Lounges’ catering hall in Staten Island offers aerial dancers performing acrobatics high above the heads of your employees. If none of that is your cup of tea you can even add on a comedian.
Your company party in Staten Island can be anything you make of it. It could be the best party of the year. If you need help planning your event call Eve Ultra Lounge and let us help you make it a night your employees will never forget!
