Corporate holiday parties can be a time of joy and mirth, but they can also be a source of stress and anxiety for those doing the organizing. As the holidays approach, now is the time to start booking your corporate party venues. Waiting any longer could certainly eliminate some of the best choices from your area, as other companies are swiftly booking their own events. Check out our roadmap to success for choosing and booking your event venue.

Start Early

The earlier you begin looking for a Minneapolis New Years party venue, the more likely you are to find something that is both appropriate and available for your holiday party. While there’s not much time this year, you can start earlier next year. Booking in August or September gives you plenty of time to get every detail in place before the fun begins.

Nail Down the Guest List

Many event venues have restrictions on the total number of people that can be inside, due to fire codes and other safety precautions. Send out RSVPs early and limit the number of guests that your employees can bring. With that in mind, you’ll be able to closely estimate the total number of attendees and book a venue that can accommodate.

Cater Thoughtfully

Food is capable of bringing people from all walks of life together, but only if it is thoughtfully and artfully done. The delicious menu at Stella’s Fish Cafe is just that type of food. We offer options for every palate, from vegetarian to gluten-free. Your guests won’t have to wonder where their dinner comes from, as we pride ourselves on serving fresh, sustainable, incredible food that will keep your guests satisfied.

To Drink or Not To Drink?

The jury is pretty evenly split on whether or not to allow alcoholic beverages at their shindigs. While there are definitely issues that can arise with alcohol consumption, it can easily be mediated with drink tickets or tokens. Decide early on whether you’re going to allow wine and spirits, as the catering plan will have to include bar service.

Discuss and Review

If you’re not sure whether you’ve made the right choice of venue, speak to people who have utilized the service before. Even if you don’t know of anyone personally, reviews on Facebook and Yelp are often helpful.
