Tips on Throwing a Party When Guests Have Dietary Restrictions
January 1, 2020
Holiday parties are so much fun, but planning them can be a stressor. This holiday party planning checklist will help you rock this year’s company holiday party planning with minimal stress and maximum fun.
The Basics
The most important things you need to do when planning a holiday party for your organization or company are these tasks:
  • Choose your date.  Red hot company party dates this year will be: December 12, December 18 and December 19.  That doesn’t mean you HAVE to plan a party on any of those days.  Often times, when you plan your holiday party on an “off” day, such as a Sunday or midweek day, you will find much more availabilities with your preferred venues and partners (i.e. caterer!).
  • Decide the guest list.  This does not have to be finalized so early in the planning process, but you should definitely have a ballpark number in mind. Once you move on to steps three and four, you will need to know as close to your actual guest count as possible so that your catering and venue choices make sense for the number of people attending your holiday party.
  • Find an available venue.  Once you have the perfect date picked out, you need to find a venue that can accommodate your guest count and that is available on your chosen date.
  • Call a caterer and event planner.  Contacting your preferred caterer Superior Catering, this early in the game is a very smart thing to do.  You are not only ensuring that they are available to work with you on your chosen date but also that you will have plenty of time to share whatever ideas you have cooked up for your event with your caterer and planner. Then they can do their thing and turn your holiday party into something really memorable.

Give your holiday party a theme.  Want something relatable and festive?  Or perhaps something totally unique?  Share your ideas with our catering specialist to get the brainstorm process rolling.  They are professionals who should be able to transform any ideas into reality, so get their creative brains involved and you will be so happy with the result.
