Want to know when or­gan­is­ing your Christ­mas Party

The Kerryman (South Kerry Edition) - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

THE first thing you should do is pick a suit­able date. You don’t want your big party ru­ined by a poor turn out just be­cause it lacked a lit­tle for­ward plan­ning. Nat­u­rally with larger Christ­mas gath­er­ings it’s much harder to ar­range a date to suit ev­ery­one, but with smaller groups this should be much eas­ier to do. For ex­am­ple, make sure your party doesn’t clash with any ma­jor events that might be on the same evening, like a ma­jor sport­ing event or a big con­cert. This can lead to a pretty dismal turnout which could have been avoided had a lit­tle more prior con­sid­er­a­tion been given.

An­other tip might be to cre­ate a spe­cial com­mit­tee en­trusted with or­gan­is­ing the Christ­mas party. This can re­ally help as a des­ig­nated per­son (or group) can then con­sult with ev­ery­one and de­cide upon the best party plan to suit. But re­mem­ber that work places are usu­ally made up of a con­sor­tium of vary­ing age and in­ter­est lev­els and it pays to ar­range that spe­cial oc­ca­sion to suit all tastes and in­ter­ests, not just yours! Also try and es­tab­lish the ba­sic theme for your Christ­mas party: is it a meal in a restau­rant? Or would peo­ple just pre­fer a few drinks and some snacks to un­wind with­out fuss?

These are just some of many con­sid­er­a­tions you need to be aware of. Just re­mem­ber to be demo­cratic and or­gan­ise your party as much as pos­si­ble to suit ev­ery­one (within rea­son, of course).

Fol­low­ing this sim­ple ad­vice could be the dif­fer­ence be­tween your party be­ing a mem­o­rable one and some­thing re­sem­bling a scene from Game of Thrones.
