Planning a holiday party can be a daunting task, but it definitely doesn’t have to be. There are a million different ways to approach party planning but one thing’s for sure, if you can host it somewhere else (like JoJo’s), DO IT!
You might not have already known, but private events are kind of our specialty at JoJo’s Restaurant & Tap House. Our team goes above & beyond when it comes to events like holiday parties so that you and your group don’t have to worry about all of the stress and mess! Now, whether you book your event at JoJo’s or somewhere entirely different is up to you, but you’d going to need to ask yourself a few questions…
Is your event date flexible?
Before you go out and invite guests to your event, make sure that the venue you want has the date available that you need. Depending on the season, event spaces book up fast. If the date for your party is set in stone, make sure to book the venue far enough in advance that there’s no chance somebody else has already reserved that date.
Do you have a budget?
After setting a date, it’s important to get all the money talk out of the way. You might fall in love with a venue, but it could be totally out of your price range. After seeing if the date is available asking about costs, room fees, and minimums should be next on your list of things to do.
What’s your final guest count?
The place you may be considering to host your holiday party might have multiple rooms available for parties of different sizes. Make sure that when you’re looking at event spaces you have a rough estimate of how many guests you are hosting. Different rooms may have different price tags attached to them as well.
Do any of your guests have dietary restrictions?
If you’re planning the menu make sure to ask your guests about dietary restrictions. When it comes to hosting the company holiday party you might be hosting guests with various allergies or even religious and medical based dietary needs.
Are you going to be decorating?
Decorating your holiday event can help to add that extra special touch to your party that you never even knew would be missing. Ask your venue if they have decorations or if it’s okay to bring your own! Most places are even able to color coordinate linens to match you theme for a small fee. Whatever you decide on, just be sure to do everyone a favor and leave the glitter at home 😉
Now that you’ve asked yourself all of the major questions, it’s time to give us a call! Planning a holiday party is a breeze when you’re working with the JoJo’s team!
