ingredients

At the end of the working year, it can be a bit difficult to muster the necessary enthusiasm to arrange an amazing end of year party. It's important to your employees that you get it right though. After all, the end of the year and Christmas in particular are times for celebration. This is especially true in an office environment where things can get stressful and you may just need a chance to relax and hang out with your colleagues away from the grindstone. 

So, to help you put together the perfect Christmas party without any fuss, we've compiled a cheat sheet of the three most important factors to consider. 

1. A fun environment

Don't fall into the same trap that a lot of workplaces do. A party is not a party if it's at the office, and while you may get away with that every once in a while for smaller drinks and get-togethers, Christmas is the time to go big. Get out of the building and away from those computers by heading out to a fun, relaxed environment where you and your work mates can really kick back and relax. If you choose wisely, you'll get the added benefit of being nice and close to the second key ingredient for a great Christmas party!

2. Entertaining activities

As much fun as standing around drinking and chatting can be, really great functions up the ante by throwing something a little more exciting into the mix. That's why you'll want to choose somewhere that can offer a host of awesome activities that will satisfy even the most varied of groups. You might be keen for a spot of bowling, a session at the arcade, or perhaps you've always wanted to corner your boss on the battlefield and destroy them with your laser tag skills? We're not judging! 

3. Great food and drink

Now, every great party whether it's for Christmas or a birthday needs to have the right food and drink. The festive season is known for its delicious meals, where tables are laden high with delicacies and then clinically devoured by famished attendees. Finding a venue with Christmas party packages on offer will allow you to sidestep the stress of having to curate a menu, so choose a deal that best suits your office and make the end of 2016 a time to remember for years to come.
