MCC Three: Holiday Party Planning Tips

MCC Three: Holiday Party Planning Tips

‘Tis the season for holiday parties! Between finding a venue, coordinating invites and creating a menu that will leave your guests begging for more, holiday party planning can add some undue stress to an already-busy time of year. But have no fear! The MCC’s party planning experts have a few tips to make the process a little bit easier, so you can enjoy the party, too!

#1. Define your budget. Determine your maximum budget, and then prioritize the party elements you want that budget allotted to. People tend to forget the small details, so we recommend hitting it out of the park for the entertainment, venue, and food/booze.  Find vendors who are willing to work with your budget, and always set aside some extra funds for inevitable last-minute small costs.

#2. Pick a theme. Even just making the conscious decision to stick to the theme “holiday” makes things easier! Define your colors, food and activities accordingly. Do you want people to wear ugly sweaters? Are you going to have a gingerbread house competition? Or do a Secret Santa gift exchange? Define these elements, and not only will it make things easier on you, but it will get your guests excited for the main event.

#3. Find the perfect event space. Going back to Tip #1, find a venue that fits within your budget. Be sure to also take into account the amount of space, proximity to where attendees’ live and what you will need to provide vs. what is already included. Be sure to ask about things like furniture, staff/security, A/V and cleanup service.
