What makes an office party memorable? Here are our top 5 tips to make your party count.

1 - The music

When it comes to the party music choice it's all about the build up. Kick off the celebrations with an upbeat yet relaxed vibe and increase the tempo as you go into the night. Live music brings a crowd to life so, if your budget supports it, we highly recommend getting a band or musician to entertain your guests. This has never been so easy as with Encore, the latest website for hiring musicians. Enquire with Encore to find the perfect DJ, band, or musician today.

2 - The food

Food for your office party has dual purpose... The first aim is to prevent your guests getting too tipsy. The second is to ensure they go away happy and satisfied. Picking up a McDonalds on the way home shouldn't be necessary! To ensure that your food selection is successful select finger food small enough to manage in one bite. Mini burgers, mini pizzas, mini sausages are great for office parties on a budget. Sit down meals are a great option as long as you've thought through the seating plan. Struggling to place that quiet team member? Make sure you sit them next to someone who will bring them out of their shell.

3 - The drinks

While cocktails are an impressive drinks option they can be quite pricey, so make sure you've thought about budget before committing. You can't go wrong with prosecco and a good selection of wines, though. If you're buying in bulk, make sure you stock up from Majestic for great discounted rates. If you're looking for something more unique and characterful, Naked Wines is worth investigating. They support small wine producers and source the best quality wine at the lowest prices.

4 - The attire

Fancy dress and themed parties are trending right now. Everyone loves to have something to talk about at an office party that isn't about work and fancy dress parties provide a great icebreaker. Hand out prizes for the best dressed and you'll have your employees talking about the office party for years.

5 - The planning

Make sure to select a venue with a good event co-ordinator on hand. When it comes to last minute office party stress having someone on hand to contact at the venue is priceless. You'll be kicking yourself for not asking the right questions before signing your venue contract, so take a look at our venue contract checklist before committing to hire the office party space.
