Want to go with non-alcoholic? Then, let your bar station prepare some really good Mocktails, Mojito, spiced chocolate drink, shakes or the same old lemonade.
  5. A DIY counter is on the rise. With guests today having their own bucket full of choice over toppings and fillings, party caterers decode over a DIY counter for them. Now, prepare your own hotdog, or a taco of your own. Pick out your choice of dip over nachos or give your submarines a barbeque twist. All this and much more are available when you decide over a DIY counter in your party. 
  • Party Favours:

These are the most interesting and very admirable segment of your corporate party. Your employees are enthusiastic about the type of gifts they are about to get. Now it entirely depends on you whether you want to have a neutral style of gifting or let it be gender specific. Well, of course, a female employee would be most happy to have a shopping coupon than a male one.

More so, it is just not about gifts anymore. Arrange some shopping coupons, movie tickets or have a lottery system where your employees can gain a gift on their luck. What more? You can set a budget and have your employees buy gifts for each other and swipe them at the time of celebration. This would create more enthusiasm among your employees and this might create eagerness among them.

So, just set your date and plan your event in advance. Clear out your schedules and hire a planner who could help you out in a more professional and in a skilful manner.
