Plan a Magical Company Holiday Party

You’ve been put in charge of planning the company’s annual holiday party and the holiday entertainment. Where do you start? All you know is that you have a budget and that you’re feeling pressure from all sides to make this party different, fun, and memorable.

You have plenty of options for holiday entertainment around Nashville, but you don’t want to rely on the “been there, done that” ideas that your guests may have experienced many times before. You want to create a unique and memorable experience that breaks the ice.  This will encourage guests to mingle and socialize with people they may have never even talked to otherwise.  

The key to creating a magical holiday party:

To create a magical holiday party, cover your basics first. Choosing a venue and laying out an agenda for the event should always be considered well ahead of time. Once you have these bases covered, you will be better able to determine where entertainment will fit into the evening and what type of entertainment might be best.

If you’re looking for something different when it comes to your annual holiday party, you might consider hiring a magician! After all, the holiday season is a magical time of year 🙂 Your holiday party is a time to celebrate a year of hard work and to recognize your employees’ efforts. You want them to know you went above and beyond to reward them.  

Magic is a perfect way to make a strong impression and to show your guests that you put some time and effort into making sure their experience is spectacular!  Whether you decide on a Stage Show after dinner or Strolling Close-Up Magic during the cocktail hour, a magical holiday party will leave your guests raving about this night for weeks!

Magic isn’t just for kids

Your annual holiday party will be easier to plan if you have an idea of what kind of magician and magic show you want. Formal or casual, adults-only or families welcome, this will determine the magician you decide to hire.  Preferably, you will want a performer who specializes in performing for the type of crowd you are expecting.

Do you want a close-up magician – one who performs strolls through the crowd, performing for small groups or tables? Or do you want a stage act for a larger crowd? A magic and comedy act? Often, a mixture of Close-Up Strolling Magic during the cocktail hour and an After-Dinner Stage Show is the perfect fit for larger events. 

An experienced magician who works corporate and company events should be flexible enough to customize his/her act to meet the needs of the client.  Keep in mind, if you are interested in a stage show for a larger crowd, a stage and sound system will be required. If you don’t have these requirements, strolling magic may be a better and more effective option.

Make your party memorable

When hiring a magician for your annual holiday party, be sure to inform him/her about other types of entertainment you may be having, such as a DJ, band, or other entertainers.  This will ensure that there are no surprises and the magician is able to give you the best experience possible.  

Make this night one to remember.  Spread the magic and holiday spirit with an exciting, entertaining, and one-of-a-kind holiday party!
