Entertainment Ideas: for Corporate Holiday Parties
Corporate holiday parties can be a lot of fun, or they can be terribly awkward. So, how do you make sure you plan a great party that makes everyone happy? You book fabulous entertainment.
Booking corporate holiday party entertainment can be easy; all it takes is envisioning how the entertainment will fit into the overall event. Since we know a thing or two about entertainment, we’d like to give you an early holiday present by offering you some tips on booking corporate holiday party entertainment:
Living Red Carpet- Imagine the shock and delight your guests will experience as they enter your event on a living red carpet that is actually a long flowing gown on a live opera singer or violin player, or any one of our stunning living statues, or appetizer tables “worn” by a party themed performer. Statue-Combining the glamour of the red carpet with exotic fashion is our specialty. Guests walk on the “red carpet” before realizing that it is part of a surreal, couture gown.
Sounds of the Season- Every party needs music and corporate events are no exception. When booking Dj,s musical entertainment you should keep your audience in mind, as well as what function you want the band or soloist to perform at the event – will they be background music? Or do you want them to be the main event? Once you answer those questions, and take into consideration theme and venue, you should be able to narrow down the best musical options for your party.
Cocktails and Conversation- Sometimes corporate holiday parties can get off to a slow start, or worse, they feel like a meeting with food. If you think this could be a problem at your holiday party, then you should look to hire an aerial bartender and Strolling Tables:
