Summertime Holiday Party Planning

Christmas Holiday Party Planning


We have all heard the popular saying “The early bird gets the worm” and for holiday party planning, that is certainly the case. Companies have very few dates to choose from between national holidays and employee vacations, which leaves many people having their business holiday celebrations around the same time.

What does this mean for you? It means less availability for all the fun ideas you had in your head IF you wait too long to make a move. As event planners, we know the ropes and HIGHLY suggest starting to plan your company holiday party in the summer months. Below are the top five reasons staring your planning between June and August is best:

5 reasons to start your holiday planning Now

1) Less stress

Imagine having all of your holiday planning done by August and floating through the fall months knowing that you don’t have to scramble to get things done.

2) Venue, vendor, and entertainment availability

Have an entertainment group you are looking for or a space that you want to hold your event? How about vendors you want to hire? Plan early; there are so few Friday and Saturday nights available between Thanksgiving and the two first weeks of December. Consider holding your event in January instead of December to avoid the holiday rush.

3) Lock in your date early

Some groups plan their holiday event a year or so in advance and reserve the date up to two years in advance; booking early will help you determine available options and if you may need to find another place.

4) Guarantee a great event for attendees

Booking early will leave you with more options and a better chance of getting what you want for your holiday party. This way you can guarantee you get your first choice for entertainment, food, and the venue you want.

5) Everyone else is doing it

The first party on the books is the first party in their books. If you plan early, your guests will save that date on their calendars before other commitments arise and will be more likely to attend your event.
