Caterers are predicting a busy holiday party season this year, so if you’re the designated party planner at your office, please keep this in mind: You cannot book your company party too early! For one thing, booking before the rush gives you a lot more time-and-place options. Banquet halls, party rooms in restaurants and all types of meeting locations make reservations for holiday parties up to a year ahead. And this time of year, good banquet facilities are receiving new reservations daily.

If the thought of organizing another company party leaves you feeling ho-ho-hum, it’s time to freshen up your game plan. Here are some tips and ideas from the banquet planning experts at Buca di Beppo.
If your corporate parties usually look more like business meetings, employees may have a hard time getting into the holiday spirit. Consider more festive sites, where guests won’t be surrounded by equipment, cubicles, merchandise and piles of work. If you’re adventurous, consider non-traditional venues such as museums, parks and ice-skating rinks. Or what about chartering a bus one evening to look at Christmas lights?
Funny how friends and family pop up around the holidays. People visit from out of town, the other side of town and even from just down the street, and spending time with them is part of what makes the season special. This year, you can make your holidays with the family and friends even more memorable by finding fun activities to share.
What you do depends on the group you’ve gotten together. Girlfriends will love a shop-‘til-you-drop party. Locate some interesting places purveying crafts, antiques or specialty items. Split up to shop, then meet for lunch at a festive restaurant. (We usually choose Buca di Beppo. More on why in a minute!) The crowd will have a blast sharing and comparing finds and enjoying light holiday meals together.
