How to Choose Business Holiday Party Invitations Based on Your Venue

Planning a holiday party for your business can be stressful while coordinating your personal family holiday events. However, you can simplify your party planning process by using your business party's venue to determine the type of business holiday party invitations, food, drinks, and music for this occasion. Letting your party location determine the style of your corporate holiday party invitations, decorations, and favors, makes party planning as easy as choosing a venue.


Booking a ballroom for your business Christmas party is a great idea if you're inviting the entire office as well as other businesses. Often times, hosting a major ballroom event during the holiday season can serve as an excellent marketing opportunity if you're inviting potential clients and partners. If you choose a beautiful ballroom for your event venue, opt for elegant, metallic silver, or gold corporate holiday party invitations for a gorgeous gala feel. Your invitation should be classy and sophisticated while using business-appropriate wording to represent your corporation.

Modern Venue

If you're considering hosting your business Christmas party at an art gallery, loft, or minimalist-style space, you should choose a modern Christmas invitation. A modern venue is ideal if your company atmosphere is a bit more informal yet chic. Your invitation should be limited to one simple pattern with stylish typography or calligraphy to match the contemporary feel of your holiday party venue.

Restaurant or Cafe

Restaurants are perfect for crowds of sixty or less. You can choose a warmer thematic invitation if you anticipate a smaller gathering. If you find a great little French bistro to host the party, for instance, simply send chic corporate holiday party invitations for a wine and cheese affair. If you prefer a rustic Italian eatery, select warm and festive business holiday party invitations evocative of the close atmosphere of a family-style feast.

Bar or Lounge

Hosting a cocktail party at a posh bar or lounge is an easy and fun way to invite employees and their guests out for drinks. If your company regularly engages in happy hours at bars or enjoys lounge outings, this is the perfect venue option for you to choose. Your company's holiday party invitation should be swanky with a sophisticated nightlife feel using preferably gold or silver.

Hosting Your Party at Home

Alternatively, if you host the party at your own home, send out friendly and fun company holiday party invitations, but be sure to maintain a hint of formality to separate your personal Christmas party from the business event. Also, if the party is at a personal residence it is especially important to indicate on the corporate holiday party invitation what kind of food and drink guests can expect.

Instead of stressing out over your search for the perfect location to match your holiday party theme, why not let this year's office holiday party be based around the perfect venue instead! You can use your venue type as inspiration for your holiday party's entire theme and lessen the amount of time spent preparing your business holiday party invitations.
