The financial year is drawing to a close and if you are lucky enough to have some spare budget, why not show how much you appreciate your staff by throwing them an end of budget year party! Here at Cooks & Partners we have put together some party venues suggestions and styling ideas to suit whatever pennies you may have left over.
Budget Blowing Ideas
For those lucky enough to have a few thousand to spend, check out our exclusive venues; Chiswick House, Two Temple Place and The View from the Shard.
These three stunning venues, could make the ideal last minute party venue and promises not to disappoint as they really do offer something for everyone. In terms of styling, sashay your way into the spring season by introducing some floral décor and have waiting staff in matching floral patterned attire. For your catering choice, serve sparkling English wines or artisan trendy gin teamed with our seasonally designed canapes.
Budget Conscious Ideas – Party On A Budget
If you haven’t got a huge amount to spend but would still like to throw a party, why not host a party in the comfort of your own office space. The majority of offices have some open space, whether it be a meeting room or perhaps a reception area. Receptions can easily be transformed into a makeshift bar and post rooms can be used as back of house waiting areas. With a little imagination, any area can be turned into a glamourous events venue for the evening.
If you are making a saving on venue hire and hosting a party in an office, consider using the Cooks & Partners food delivery service as your catering choice. Our chefs can put together a selection of dishes based on any requirements you wish. Whilst we can supply waiting staff, you may like to further save money by utilising your own staff or by having a self-serve finger buffet. This can also be the case for the bar.
Company Breakfast Meeting Ideas
Many companies now host breakfast briefing or networking sessions first thing. These are a great way for staff to mingle and hear from top executives about company performance in a less formal manner whilst enjoying breakfast on the company. These sessions tend to be less expensive than evening ones as apart from bucksfizz most people won’t be hitting the gin cocktails before 11am!
Hopefully this post has given you some ideas on how to put the last of your budget to good use. Please get in touch via email or call the office on 020 7731 5282 for venue rates, catering options and styling advice.
