With the start of a new year, you may have a lot to celebrate in the upcoming months. There could be new business deals, landing new clients, finalising projects or even overall success of your company. Therefore you would be responsible for holding formal or informal dinner parties depending on what you are celebrating. If you are celebrating with clients or business partners you share no personal relationship with, then it is best to hold a formal dinner party. However, if you are celebrating the success of a finished deal or just the company in general with you day-to-day colleagues, you could throw a casual dinner party. Whichever form it maybe, here are some tips on planning a hassle free, fun evening.
When planning a dinner it is important for you to have in mind the reason behind the event. Depending on the occasion, the location, food and guests would all vary. Once you have the occasion sorted, you can then pay attention to the guest list. If it is a formal dinner party, you would then have to have a set number of guests. You can list out the clients and/or partners you want to invite, and then formally communicate with them their preferred date and time. However, always plan for an extra amount of guests as some invitees may bring along a spouse. With any formal/informal dinner party, it is important to make sure the time and date you set in one that is comfortable to everyone, as it is most likely that they all would have busy schedules.
Once you have set a date, time and confirmed the guest list, you can look to creating formal/informal invitations. The invitations would have to clearly state the date, time and venue. Also offer a method of RSVP.
Venue and food
If you are hosting a formal dinner party, then you are most likely to want a private function room. However, if you want you can also opt for a dinner party at your home with the added features of decorations and catered food. If you are throwing a casual dinner party, you can plan a comfortable dinner at a restaurant or your home.
