For a fun and stress-free holiday party, choosing the right venue can make all the difference. While house or in-office parties are cozy and personal, it may not be suited (or insured) to hold the festivities you are picturing in your mind. Plus, this leaves all of the work on your shoulders. By choosing the Delafield Brewhaus, you choose industry professionals who are experienced in all types of parties.
1. Tasty Food
Everyone gets excited about a delicious meal. When you call to book your party, we will talk about the needs of your group. Are you planning a sit-down dinner, a buffet, or a cocktail party with passed appetizers? This is a good time to start thinking about dietary restrictions and allergies.
We are known for quality craft beers, boasting our own brewery in-house, but we also have a wide selection of wines and an even wider selection of spirits. We also have a large number of non-alcoholic offerings to keep the party going..
3. Accurate Headcount
It is important to know how many people you are expecting in order to plan for enough space, seating and food. Be sure to clarify details about a plus one in the invitation and remember to ask guests to RSVP. You may also want to send a friendly reminder a week or two before the event.
4. Lively Music
Music will lighten the atmosphere and put everyone in a cheerful mood. Create a playlist ahead of time with more songs than you think you will need. At the venue, take the time to work with any equipment and learn how to operate it. Or hire a band or DJ to take the entertainment to another level.
Ask the venue if the space is decorated. If they do not, ask if you can bring your own. If you will be hosting the party after Christmas had passed, remember that snowflakes, greenery, and other winter themed decorations will be appropriate into 2017.
Since the holidays are so busy, consider hosting a winter-themed get together after most festivities have passed. Many holiday parties take place in January, which is advantageous for the feeling of relaxation that settles in after the hectic holiday season..
We’re scheduling company holidays now through well into 2017. If you’d like to start planning the festivities, call Tricia Knutson at 262.646.7821. No matter when you decide to host your holiday party, remember to treasure the magic of the season.
