Planning a Corporate Party! Be Sure to Make it Fun
Are you looking for fun party ideas for adults? When it’s time to celebrate a promotion, mix a bit of business and pleasure during a corporate retreat, or a long list of other reasons, there are so many fun party ideas for adults.
Are you in charge of the planning committee? A member of the planning committee? Or perhaps you are one of the much-appreciated volunteers dedicated to making the event a success. Whatever your role, there will be quite a few tasks to accomplish, so it’s important to have an ongoing party planning checklist.
If you work for a company that hosts regular parties, you may want to put out a suggestion box for party ideas. This way, the entire office is able to participate in the process. While these suggestion boxes can be anonymous, you might be surprised by some of your co-workers’ ideas. It can also be fun to guess who submitted which idea.
It wouldn’t be surprising if several of your colleagues recommended a party with a theme, such as a Las-Vegas-style casino night. This could be a lot of fun, even if you’ve never been to Vegas and don’t know any casino-style games.
Many adults love the opportunity to win prizes, and these could be in keeping with a specific corporate event theme. You could also sell raffle tickets before or during the event gift baskets from local businesses, a night out on the town or a weekend getaway.
Another fun way to award prizes is to have a costume contest. You could even ask for volunteers to judge the contest, which is another great way to get the office involved.
After you come up with several fun company event ideas, it may be challenging to make the final decision. One way to handle this is to post the top five and allow everyone in the office to cast their vote.
Once you’ve completed the planning stages for your event, remember the importance of being a team player. In addition to delegating tasks where and when needed, it also means not taking on more work than you can handle.
