Throw A Contest


A potluck can really cut the costs of a party. Although most companies host Christmas parties, New Year celebrations are often shouldered by the staff.  Instead of hiring a caterer, you and your co-workers can bring your own specialty dishes. Make it even more interesting and vote on your favorite!

Go with a theme


How about a theme to tie it all together? You can go for winter wonderland, Marvel vs. DC or even a red carpet themed New Year Party. Have fun designing your costume!

Hire a professional photographer or a Photobooth


A professional photographer knows how to capture all the candid moments and fix the lighting to ensure that everyone looks great in the photos.  A photobooth comes with all kinds of props you can use for a great picture!

Minute to Win It



Have you seen this show? They use everyday items like red cups, paper clips and playing cards for the most intense one minute games!

It’s prudent to let your immediate supervisor know that you plan to throw a party and get all the necessary permits before the date. Also, it is important to never let customer service suffer because of the party.

Other than these two points, have fun at your party!
