When you are putting on a professional event for your company, you cannot afford any mistakes. Everything ranging from food, entertainment, decorations… literally, everything has to be on point. If something goes wrong, guess what? It is your name on the line, unfortunately.
When you’re in charge of a whole event like that, it is a good idea to build a small team and to delegate extremely competent people. Depending on the size of the party, things can get complicated fast.
You can find a company like www.jugglinginferno.com that exclusively handles the entertainment portion for you. They employ enigmatic and mesmerizing fire performers, glow performers, and jugglers. These aren’t any old performers that your guests will snooze over; these performers deliver memorable performances.
You can do the same thing with the food aspect. Whatever you do, do not skimp on the food! This could mean compromising quality, which could mean compromising the health of your guests (and employees). There are so many up and coming chefs that you could probably hit up your Facebook network and have your friends share your message. Make sure to request references and to call those references. Most people will request the references but never do anything with them. It is very important that whoever you have has had experience at catering food for a party. A new chef could really make some awful mistakes.
One of the more important things: the decorations! The ambiance! What is the theme of the event? Is it extremely formal and classy? Business casual? Let loose and have some drinks? Planned around a holiday? Or a ball? First, you have to determine the decor. Imagine how the guests will be dressed. If you are feeling overwhelmed and this is a big affair for a big company, it is essential you hire someone who has experience in decorating for such big affairs.
Once you nail these details, you will feel confident. Keep the folks you have delegated to in check. That is very important. If you slack, for sure, the people under you, no matter how good, will slack for sure!
