Everyone should celebrate their birthday, including your business! You’re your corporate anniversary rolls around, it’s all about celebrating how far you’ve made it, from one year to another, a toast to you is much-deserved.
We’re guessing you’ve already googled a lot of inspiration ideas for your corporate cocktail party, and spent the evening looking for birthday function rooms in Melbourne.
Whether or not you decide to gift your customers with thank you gifts and discounts for the support, you still need to celebrate and thank your employees for all of their hard work.
Here’s what you should consider when you’re planning a birthday blowout for your company.
Pick a Perfect Theme
Ensuring your birthday bash is a memorable one can be tough work and you don’t want to be left with a corporate event to rival the famous Christmas party in that episode of The Office. Make it a good one by incorporating a party theme that’ll give your guests something to talk about – the perfect ice breaker as they say. From masquerade balls and Spanish themes to a 1920’s blowout to put Gatsby to shame, the bigger, the better.
Partying on an empty stomach? Not ideal. In line with your theme, it’s time to pick the catering to match. While we sometimes crave an old school mini pie, those days are kind of over *hurray*. Instead, we’re talking about delicious food trucks with the quirkiest of cuisines, salad platters for days, Parisian canapés and booze (lots and lots of booze). Talk to our team of events experts who have all the contacts and all the menus of dreams that’ll have your shindig covered.
Launch Something Exciting
A great way to make your business birthday a memorable one, is to launch a product or service that you’ve been working on for a while. The perfect way to excite your guestlist is to unveil something that no one has seen before, and really ramp up that exclusivity that customers love. It’s also a great way to boost team morale and thank them for everything they’ve put into the business.
Surprise, Amaze, Amuse
Along with the cities coolest DJ (that’s a given), we recommend hiring some live entertainment. A good old boogie on the dancefloor is of course the best way to get everyone in the festive mood, but throwing in something different? That’s what will have your guests talking for months to come. From Bollywood dancing and magicians to comedians, graffiti artists and a caricaturist – the options are endless which means you have no excuse but to put on a show!
Cake, Cake, Cake, Cake
You need a birthday cake to tuck into after those 9pm cocktails sink in and the hunger strikes, because well, cake is… cake. Need we say anymore?
Whichever way that you decide to celebrate your corporate birthday, you don’t have to do it alone. The team of event experts at Melbourne’s Best Functions can throw you a party to remember, taking care of all the hard stuff so that you don’t have to.
