You’re planning your company’s next big corporate get together, and the pressure is on - attendees must leave happy, and bosses must be impressed. With these five services, however, you’re guaranteed to “wow” everyone of your guests.

1. Physical save-the-dates

If you’re planning a party on the fancier side, you’ll want to make sure you use physical save-the-dates. These needn’t use the classic script fonts - don’t be afraid to change it up with a unique twist. Black paper and white ink is a compelling combo.

2. Transportation

If your party is being held in a location outside of your office, providing transportation (even simple options like passenger vans) will make your guests feel like royalty, and definitely impress your managers for your foresight.

3. Event lighting

You don’t need to book a fancy event space to create a beautiful backdrop for hosting a party. By making use of multi-colored lighting, you can inspire any mood in a space, no matter if it’s a warehouse, dining hall, or ballroom.

4. Interspersed installations

Place physical art installations throughout your event space - these are sure to draw attention, generate buzz, and act as conversation starters. You can even make them on brand - take aspects of your logo and place them throughout your event, so guests can hunt them all down.

5. In-line entertainment

No matter what, people will need to wait in line - whether for drinks, the bathroom, or even the next round of foosball. Provide entertainment to your guests waiting in line - this can be achieved with video, live entertainment, or even an app made specifically for your event.

6. Balloon ceilings

Another great way to transform a space into a more party-like atmosphere is by using a balloon ceiling - and when mixed with multi-colored lighting, you can really wow your guests.

7. Branded floors

Use carpeting or mats to cover up hard or unsightly floors - and to add even more, brand it with your company’s logo.

8. Supply question cards

Scatter cards with ice-breaker questions on them throughout the tables at you party - this will help guests with networking and to avoid awkward situations.

9. Event uniforms

If your party is more on the casual side, consider supplying your event staff with unique uniforms - like a pajama theme, or safari. Changing aspects of your party up like this will make sure your attendees remain entertained throughout the whole experience.

10. Post party food

Let’s face it - it’s hard to eat when you’re surrounded by people, shaking hands, talking to bosses, trying to stand, eat, and drink all at the same time. Give your guests post-party boxed meals - this will keep them thinking about the great party after it’s over, and make them thankful for the thoughtful gesture on your part.
