The month is October and although it seems that Christmas is far away, it is not necessarily so. Company events are common around Christmas time. This social event has already become of essence in many companies in Spain. To ensure the success of your Christmas party, it’s best to plan it ahead. One of the fundamental things to keep in mind is to choose the best restaurant for the occasion.
Sal Café Restaurant has a long experience in organizing events of all kinds, including Christmas company dinners. We have a spacious and versatile space with capacity for groups from 20 to 250 guests. But let’s see in more detail which aspects must be taken into account to make the company dinner fun and organized.
Ideas for a fun Christmas business dinner
The first thing you should keep in mind when organizing the company dinner is space. If it is a small company, a cozy place is enough to feel comfortable and at ease. One of Sal Café’s interior rooms can accommodate 25 guests seating and 40 guests standing, making it the ideal space for companies with few workers.
Another aspect to consider is the menu: how to choose an original and likable menu? At this point, there are several options:
- Cocktail menu, which includes dishes for vegans, gluten intolerant, vegetarians and those with allergies. Everyone can stands up and choose whatever they like.
- Group menu, which includes at least five dishes to share and a second dish with meat or fish option.
- Gala menu, for companies that want a more formal event.
Next, another aspect must be assessed. How to take advantage of an event like this and do teambuilding in a fun way? We suggest the following:
A thematic meeting
Think of a theme for the evening and invite your guests to come dressed accordingly. Prizes can be awarded for the most original attire (according to the possibilities of the company). There are many ideas out there, like Hollywood, Western or the sweet years of Barcelona’s past.
Prepare a game
Karaoke and Secret Santa are so outdated. If you want something original to surprise your workers, organize a gymkhana. There is no better way of strengthening social relationships. Tests can include everything from riddles to skill tests. If the company is small, an option may be to play charades (couples of two) and try to guess famous movies.
A dance contest
You can make a dance contest divided into different musical styles. And at Sal Café we have a DJ set at your disposal!
In short, organizing a company dinner can either be a very conventional social event or a fun night that really helps your teammates connect!
