Five tips for hosting the best work Christmas party at Bopp & Tone
If you’re in charge of planning your work Christmas party, this article is a must-read!
With silly season just around the corner, we’ve compiled a list of our top tips for hosting an event your guests won’t want to leave. From live music to photo booth moments & bespoke cocktails, keep reading for our 5 tips to jazz up your next event.
One: Music is key!
Who doesn’t love a good boogie? We all know music can definitely make or break a party!
Top tip: Book in a live music act to take your work Christmas party to the next level. Choose an acoustic solo artist or go all out with a live band. Check out the jazz band from our Grand Opening Party or pop by during one of our Soul Saturday events for a taste of our live soul music.
Two: Add an Experience Station
Not only are our experience stations very visually appealing, but they are also perfect for adding a social, interactive element to your event. Let your guests casually mingle over drinks and bites as they sling back a freshly shucked oyster or pick on charcuterie, cheeses, fruits, and delicious antipasto. From charcuterie and cheese stations to an oyster shucking bar, enquire today to find out our options. Get in touch >
Three: Create An Event Hashtag
Make sure that everyone is snapping & sharing away! Create a personal event hashtag to send out to your guests to track all posts in one spot. Not only do they create lifelong memories, but they are amazing to reference for future events. Remember to tag @boppandtone too!
Why not go the extra mile and hire a photo booth? From roaming booths to personalised insta printers, guests can have fun mingling & getting creative. There is nothing more valuable than the memories you create with your work friends #teamculture
Four: Customised Cocktails
First impressions are most important and guests should be welcomed with something to sip on when they arrive. Kick-off the festivities with one of our delicious colourful cocktails (check out our cocktail menu here >) or really impress with something bespoke. Do you have a brand colour or logo you want to showcase? Our bartenders can work with you on creating the perfect personalised cocktail.
Five: Dress Up For The Occasion
It’s your time to shine! Looking and feeling great at an event really boosts the vibe. Get fancy and encourage everyone to dress up for the occasion. Whether you’re buying new or bringing out your special occasion suit or dress, class it up! Top tip: Get everyone to dress in 1950’s theme to really embrace the style of the venue. Ladies, don’t forget to bring a pair of flats for when you want to hit the dance floor later!
