St. Louis, MO – Holiday parties can be a great way to improve company morale and relationships between coworkers. It gives everyone a chance to mingle in an intimate, rather than business, setting, and allows families to feel involved as well. Hosting a successful holiday party, however, can take a lot of time and effort. Here are some tips to planning a well-executed event that won’t take up all of your companies time or break the bank.
Get coworkers involved. If the party planning responsibility falls on a group of people, no one will have an abundance of stress. Don’t force participation, but leave the option open for everyone who wants to help. Different people can take care of decorating, food, sending out invitations, and anything else you need. Allowing employees to help plan the event will also increase their appreciation for it, and they will probably have more fun at the actual party.
To reduce costs, consider having door prizes instead of a gift or favor for every employee. Door prizes are still a generous gesture, but fewer items will have to be purchased. Giving away the door prizes will also be a fun activity to get employees excited during the party. Make sure these prizes are not too extravagant, though. Sticking with nice, simple door prizes will keep the costs low and prevent anyone who doesn’t win from feeling too unhappy.
Instead of worrying about making everything perfect, focus on a few details. Get creative. Have a drink special for the employees, provide a high end buffet, pick a theme and decorate accordingly. A memorable evening doesn’t require going all out on every aspect of your party. Emphasizing a few details will make a great impression.
Hopefully these tips will help you plan a stress-free, fun company holiday party for everyone!

LEVERAGE DANCE THEATER specializes in site-specific modern dance. One of the most talked about dance companies in St Louis, Leverage has produced their own work and been featured in such prestigious performances as NEW DANCE HORIZONS and SPRING TO DANCE. They have performed across the country, from coast to coast.
BROTHERS LAZAROFF will be fresh off the heals of their popular Hannukah Hullabaloo. Brothers Lazaroff is a band that melds genres, and they might share brainwaves too. The fraternal front men are a staple of the local music scene and draw crowds all over town. The brothers are equipped with earnest songwriting and an earthy sound peppered with jazz-inspired riffs and fuzzy solos. The group has developed an intuition and familiarity that allows each player to create something unexpected.
LEVERAGE and BROTHERS LAZ will collaborate for the first time in this one-of-a-kind, one night only show at the beautiful BARNETT ON WASHINGTON. The Barnett is magical to say the least. This is a rare, first opportunity to see the otherwise exclusive space.
