5 Tips for the Perfect Company Holiday Party

The holiday season is a time to celebrate, and what better way to do so than with an company holiday party that everyone will remember? As a photo booth and decor company based in St. Louis, MO, we know a thing or two about throwing a great party! Here are a few tips to help you plan the perfect office holiday party that will leave your colleagues talking until next year.

1. Plan a Fun and Inclusive Theme

Choosing a theme can bring your party to life and make it more memorable. Consider a classic winter wonderland, an ugly sweater party, or a glamorous black-and-white ball. Make sure the theme is inclusive and appeals to a wide range of tastes and cultures. Once you've selected your theme, carry it through in your invitations, decorations, music, and even the dress code.

2. Start with a Statement Backdrop & Decor

One of the first things your guests will notice is the decor, and nothing makes a statement quite like a focal backdrop. Whether it's a shimmering curtain of gold sequins, or a welcoming balloon garland, the decor can set the tone for the entire event and carry out a party theme or build on your brand identity. A backdrop at the head of the room can create a focal point for your party and provide a perfect spot for photos of a speaker or award presentation. Eye Candy Rentals in the St. Louis, Missouri and Illinois area offers a variety of backdrop options as well as add-ons like balloon garlands and neon signs. Some of the most popular holiday party backdrops are red sequin, champagne gold sequin, peacock sequin or a gold, silver or black shimmer wall.

3. Offer a Variety of Food and Drink Options

Great food and drinks are a must for any successful party. Cater to different tastes and dietary restrictions by offering a variety of options. Consider setting up stations with different cuisines or a buffet with a wide range of appetizers, main courses, and desserts. For drinks, a mix of alcoholic and non-alcoholic options is essential. You could even hire a mixologist to create custom holiday cocktails for an added touch of sophistication.

4. Incorporate a Photo Booth for the Ultimate Guest Experience

A Fête Photo Booth is more than just a fun activity to capture photos—it's an essential part of the guest experience. The photo booth encourages your guests to let loose and have fun. Personalize your Fete Booth experience with a variety of custom and holiday/themed props, backdrop options, and optional on-site printing. We'll also create a custom image overlay frame to include your branding and/or theme along with a personalized welcome start screen on the booth. You can choose an all-digital photo booth that allows guests to take still images, boomerangs, GIFs and slow motion video clips that can be instantly sent via text or email. Or upgrade to a booth with on-site printing to provide guests with a tangible keepsake to remember the party.

5. Show Appreciation to your Employees with Thoughtful Favors

Thank your employees for their company contribution by sending them home with thoughtful favors. Personalized ornaments, candles, or gourmet treats are all great options. Practical items like branded mugs, hats and tees are also popular options that support the company branding. To make a fun experience with company gifts, consider hiring a company that will do on-site shirt/hat printing. Or provide branded merchandise like a travel mug with a station for attendees to personalize with fun stickers that incorporate industry/company sayings or options for names & initials. Thoughtful favors show your appreciation and leave a lasting impression.


The key to a successful party is thorough planning and organization. Start planning well in advance, create a detailed checklist, and delegate tasks to a trusted team. Make sure to communicate clearly with your vendors, including caterers, entertainers, photo booth and decor companies. 

By following these five tips, you can create a company holiday party that’s both fun and memorable. From setting the scene with a stunning backdrop to ensuring everyone has a blast with a photo booth, thoughtful planning and attention to detail will make your event a success. Remember, the goal is to celebrate the season and the past year along with creating an enjoyable experience for everyone.
