1. Leaving It Too Late
So, let’s get started with possibly the most overlooked one of these 3 Mistakes Not to Make as the Christmas Party Organiser.
Now we know this may seem like common sense but how many times have you put off organising your Christmas event and before you know it, it’s too late and all the exciting venues and entertainment are fully booked?
The festive season is a peak time for acts, performers, DJs and the best ones will be snapped up by the organised early birds. Get everything booked early and you’ll have more options, more price levels and more flexibility to make your event fantastic!
2. Not Setting a Budget
Setting your budget for the most highly anticipated work event of the year will definitely increase the value of your event. Knowing how much you can spend overall and on separate things such as food and entertainment will keep you in check and in control of your Christmas event.
3. Make It Memorable
Last but certainly not least of our top 3 Mistakes Not to Make as the Christmas Party Organiser list: This is the best time of year to think creatively and discover unusual options to make your Christmas party an extremely memorable and unique event.
As the organiser, we can understand you probably have a lot of people to please, however, we can assure you that playing it safe and doing the same thing year in year out certainly will not please your office, so think outside the box and surprise them this year!
