We want to ensure you have the best holiday party of the season! Here are a few things to consider when you are planning.
First thing to consider is budget. Is a holiday party even feasible? Come together to decide on a budget and make sure to stick to it.
Picking a venue. Once the budget is established, the next step is picking a venue- not all parties have to be in the office! Here are a few suggested venues in Montgomery and Frederick counties to choose from:
Food & Alcohol. Another thing you want to consider is the type of food and alcohol you serve. Ordering and confirming a menu can be overwhelming! We suggest leaving that to the professionals and letting your caterer or restaurant handle those details for you. At Simply Fresh, we have a holiday menus ranging anywhere from light appetizers to customized plated meals. Here are just a few items you can choose from:
Brie and tenderloin crostini with herb aioli, Creamy tomato bisque with Parmesan cheese straws, and Sesame noodle cups with grilled shrimp.
Alcohol at a company party is a sensitive issue. If you decide to serve alcohol, determine on drink limits and make sure there is a professional bartender serving. This avoids the uncomfortable discussion in the HR office the next day. The company may also want to consider offering alternative transportation to ensure a safe experience for everyone.
When you book with Simply Fresh, we take care of all those details for you! We offer bartending services, shuttle transportation and even cash bar options. Dates have started to fill up; please reach out with your next catered holiday event and we will be happy to help-Happy celebrating!
