2016 Holiday Party Trends

Posted on by destinbayweddings

22-600x175It’s almost time for the holidays and that means parties! It seems like each year, holiday parties just get better and better. As the leading event venue in Destin, we keep up with the trends so that you don’t have to. Here are a few of our favorite holiday party trends for 2016.

A hired staff. Traditionally, catered food was the holiday party standard. These days, more planners are opting to have a hired onsite staff to offer passed appetizers, clear plates, and clean up after guests.

A full bar. Wine and beer are fine, but if you really want to take your holiday party to the next level, offer signature cocktails served by a professional mixologist. It’s also nice to have a hot chocolate bar or cider bar for nondrinkers and designated drivers.

Photo booths. Old school photo booths are making a comeback in a big way! Offer a few props and guests will line up to participate and walk away with a great keepsake!

Live band karaoke. Yes, karaoke has been a favorite for a while, and now you can have karaoke with a full live backup band! This is fun and makes you feel like a rock star!

Choose a great venue. Guests don’t want to go to a party at the office no matter how well you plan. It will still feel like work to them.

If you are planning your holiday party and are looking for a beautiful event venue in Destin, call us today to schedule a showing of our stunning space.
