While school students and retired couples have been spending the last few months soaking up some rays in the hot Florida sun, you and your team have been hard at work. While you may have been yearning for white sand and foamy surf, you’ve been carrying out your duties and pushing your company forward–and although your employees may have been relieved to remain in the air conditioning, you’ve undoubtedly caught them staring out the window and daydreaming of a getaway at some point or another.
However, there’s no need to feel cooped up as the fall season comes into full swing! Once your employees have gotten their little ones back to class and perhaps started on a few new classes of their own, there’s a good chance they’ll be in need of a little rest and relaxation. The expert corporate event planner in Orlando at An Affair of Excellence has some party-perfect ideas for hosting a fall get together for your company:
- Celebrate the distinctive flavors and colors of the season. Nothing welcomes the arrival of fall more than bright red and orange colors and lovely pumpkins and gourds. Here in Florida, we don’t get as much of a chance to see the leaves change color, but you can recreate the scenery with dried leaves and fake trees. Don’t forget to scatter a few acorns across the tables; you can even end the night with a pumpkin pie!
- With fall comes football. The beginning of another football season also makes a great theme for your office party. Start your own interoffice bet on which team is going to win that week’s game and offer a small door prize for the winners. Since our Orlando weather stays warm well through the fall, this is the perfect opportunity to bust out the grill and share a few hamburgers and hotdogs. Don’t forget the ice cold beverages!
- Host an office potluck. Nothing says you and your employees appreciate each other than sharing your favorite meals with each other. Encourage your employees to make and bring a meal to share. It’s probably a good idea to make a signup list a few days before the party so you don’t wind up with all entrees or all desserts–although we’re sure either way it’d be delicious!
Don’t let your employees get stir crazy; thank them for all their hard work with an exciting and fun fall party. If you’re not sure how to get started, never fear!
