How to Coordinate Company Holiday Parties with a Sign Up

The holiday season gives companies the opportunity to celebrate teamwork and success, whether you exceeded your goals or are looking forward to a brighter year.  

Planning a holiday party or meal is a meaningful way to bring your team together and show how much their contributions are appreciated. There are many ways to plan a festive event from a casual potluck to a fancy dinner. Sign ups make it easy to organize all the party details and simplify communication with your group. 

Coordinate a potluck 

Invite your team to bring their favorite dish and gather around the table for a holiday feast. Sign ups help take the stress out of potluck planning, so you have more time to deck the halls and join the fun.  

Choose one of our festive sign up designs and create slots to request items such as appetizers, entrees, side dishes, desserts and drinks. Organizing your menu by category ensures you have the essentials covered and gives guests the flexibility to share a dish they love. You can specify quantities for different types of items, so you’ll have a variety of delicious offerings.

Virtual fun 

If your team works remotely, bring your colleagues together to celebrate the holidays with a virtual event. From happy hours to trivia contests, there are lots of options to take the party online. 

Invite your team with a sign up and add a video conference link with our Zoom integration, making it easy for people to join the event. You can send invites to your group as part of the sign up process and share the sign up link via email or messaging tools. 

Invite participants to choose a festive background or wear something fun like a tacky Christmas sweater. If you have the budget, send employees a holiday treat to enjoy during the event, such as popcorn or hot chocolate. 

Collect RSVP’s 

Make sure you know how many people to expect by creating a sign up with the RSVP format. You can request RSVP’s and potluck items on your sign up, so you’ll have your guest list and menu organized in one place. 

Save time by setting up reminder messages to automatically send by email or text a few days before the event. Keep attendees updated on the latest details with our custom messaging feature, ensuring that everyone shows up on time and ready to celebrate.

Ask about food allergies and special diets 

Whether you’re organizing a potluck or a planning a catered meal, accommodate people with special diets by including a custom question on your sign up. You can add an optional question for people to share their diet restrictions when sending an RSVP for the event. Based on the responses, look for options to add some items on your menu to accommodate their needs. 

Plan festive activities 

Organize a few holiday games or activities to bring more even more holiday cheer to your event. Invite guests to wear their tackiest holiday attire and vote to find out who takes the top prize. Host a Christmas trivia competition and divide your group into teams to see who knows most about the joyful season. Setting your trivia game up on the Kahoot! app is a great way to play with a group. 

Need help choosing activities? Ask your partygoers! List options on a sign up and ask your team to vote for their favorites. 

With sign ups taking care of the organizing, you can get in the holiday spirit with your team and look ahead to your best year yet.
