Have you been tasked with planning your next corporate event? Have no idea where to start or what kind of theme you should even consider? Fear not, we’ve got some great ideas to get you started!
Planning a corporate event is different from planning a personal event like a wedding or a birthday party, but it can be just as fun and creative if you want it to be. Below are some of our favorite ideas for unique, engaging, and fun corporate events.
For today’s cocktail aficionado, a Speakeasy Theme offers the perfect chance to get into character of the popular 1920’s-era speakeasy. Serve up a menu of classic cocktails like the French 75, Bee’s Knees, and Sidecar, and outfit your venue with a cool, low-light, smokey bar vibe. Era-specific music should set the perfect mood, and guests can feel welcome to dust off their suspenders, or perhaps purchase a new pair just for the occasion.
Especially fitting for oceanside towns – or those that wish they were! – a Casual Clambake offers a relaxed atmosphere where your guests can really unwind. There are plenty of seafood-themed routes you could take – the classier, more stately seafood tower, or a more down-home spread of lobster rolls with crispy chips, crunchy pickles, and plenty of clam chowder. Even better? This kind of event is perfectly suited for a boat if you’d like to take your party to sea!
Another option for those looking to keep things casual, a Backyard Barbecue theme is everything we love about summer: laid back, relaxed, and delicious. You can set up lawn games like horseshoes, cornhole, and croquet, and serve a big spread of barbecued meats and all the fixins.
Great for colder seasons when you need to take the party indoors, a Casino Theme offers an interactive and fun atmosphere. With endless options for games and activities, it’s a great way to naturally encourage your guests to mingle, and there are plenty of Casino-inspired cocktails and food options to accompany a casino spread of poker tables, blackjack, and roulette.
Perhaps you’re looking for something a bit more lively? If so, then a Mardi Gras themed party might be just the ticket. Load up on glitzy beads, ask the caterer to bring boxes of beignets, and instate a dress code: Masquerade masks for all! This is also a perfect opportunity to bring in some local live music, and to serve an especially indulgent menu.
These are just a few of our favorite ideas, but we’re always excited for some new inspiration. What’s the coolest event theme you’ve ever experienced?
