You may wonder if it’s too early to start planning a Christmas party when it’s still months away. However, many people in Australia make this mistake every year, and suddenly Christmas arrives without any preparation. The best time to begin organizing your staff Christmas party is now, and continue planning daily until the big day. While you may feel excited about putting everything together, it’s also normal to be stressed due to uncertainty about the proper planning process.
Now is the time to start looking for Christmas party ideas in Perth that can make this year’s party much more successful than last years. There are so many things that need to be put into place as well as many new ideas that need to be created to make this particular party stand out from all of the rest. This is your opportunity to show everyone that you’re the best party planner and should be trusted with this responsibility every year. If you already have some ideas but need more inspiration, consider adding the following items to your checklist.
- Figure out your budget – If you’re the boss then you can pretty much spend what you like and this is an expense that can be claimed back from the taxman. If your boss has given you this job to do then he or she will give you a budget and this is something that you need to stick to. You need to be able to try to make the money go further than before and you need to make smart choices when it comes to things like the food and drinks and decorations.
- Find a suitable date – This is more difficult than you might think because Christmas time all across Australia is a very busy time commercially and so you do not want to be planning a party when everyone has to work the next day. You also do not want to plan such a thing on the weekends because then maybe many of the staff will not turn up. It is good idea to talk to staff and management to get an idea of when a good date would be appropriate.
- Plan some activities – Activities can act as a real icebreaker because many people are reluctant to engage with other staff members and to have some real fun because they think that management will judge them on in. Make sure that you hire a DJ who can play popular music that everyone will enjoy and start preparing some fun activities for everyone to play.
Hopefully this year, your Christmas party will be the one of the best and everyone will be talking about it for years.
