Have something to celebrate
Every company gathering, party, or event should have a focus, which helps guide the choices for menu, entertainment, guest list, and dcor. Think about these ideas:
Host a company picnic onsite
Whatever the reasons to celebrate, from small company parties to large corporate celebrations, we can help plan forand treatyour guests, by Catering with Elegance.
Know the expected headcount
Knowing how many people are planned to be invited and how many can be comfortably accommodated are the two key parameters to managing the guest list for a successful company or corporate event. Think about:
Are employees families invited? Will there be children?
Eating, seating, and guest comfort considerations help to determine the capacity to host a successful and well-orchestrated event.
As to invited guests, the rule of thumb is that 15-20% of the list will decline the invitation. If inviting a lot of people from out of town, that number could be higher30 to 40%. To maximize the number of RSVPs, send invitations out early as well as give guests an easy way to respond. Online invitations, such as Evite or Paperless Post, make RSVPs easyand simplify keeping track of the expected headcount.
