Enhance your next corporate event with a theme that gets everyone excited. When you host an event with a unified theme, you can achieve the atmosphere you want for your gathering. Consider one of the following themes to make your next corporate party a success:
A casino night combines cocktail elegance with games of chance to create a fun and exciting atmosphere. Whether you are trying to raise money for charity or just want to give your staff a night off from the office, a casino party is a great option. Enforce a black-tie dress code to add class to the event, and decorate the party space with casino-themed items.
If you want to add a layer of fun to your party plans, consider hosting a 1920s-themed party. Ask your guests to dress in clothing of the time. With smooth jazz playing from the speakers, you and your employees can easily bring the appeal of the 1920s into your event space.
You can take your staff on a trip to the banks of the Mediterranean or the beaches of Brazil without ever leaving New York City when you throw a destination party. Whether you want to focus on one country or incorporate a few destinations into your party design, a destination party is sure to be a huge hit with your staff. Be sure to include décor and menu items direct from the country you are representing to add authentic appeal to the evening.

The family and friends who are attending your wedding are happy to come celebrate your union with your soon-to-be-spouse. This does not mean, however, that they want to stand around bored in the event space while you take your wedding photos! Use these tips to keep your guests entertained in between the ceremony and reception:
Throw a Cocktail Hour
A cocktail hour is one of the most popular methods for entertaining guests while you and your spouse are occupied. Serving appetizers and beverages keeps your guests well-fed while they wait for the reception to start. Even if your picture time takes a little longer than you planned, as long as your guests have food and drinks, they can keep themselves entertained.
Provide Disposable Cameras
Give your guests the opportunity to play amateur photographer by leaving disposable cameras around the wedding venue. While they enjoy a few cocktails and mingle amongst themselves, they can snap some candid shots of the event. Not only does this keep guests entertained, but it also provides you with even more mementos from your big day.
Get the Party Started
Many couples decide to hold off on music until they make their big entrance. No matter how you enter the event venue, though, the guests will notice. Why not give them a chance to get the fun started by playing music between the ceremony and reception? If your guests can relax and get into the party atmosphere, they are more likely to stay for the entire reception.

Although a corporate event offers a more casual atmosphere than the office, it is still important to remember that you are attending a work event. This does not mean that you cannot have fun, but you should do so in a way that is good for your career.
For example, you should be cautious with your alcohol consumption. Too many drinks might cause you to do or say something you will later regret. Steer conversations away from office gossip, and make an effort to talk to people outside of your normal social circle. Take the time to thank the party organizer to show your appreciation for the event.
