Personal vs. Company Holiday Parties: How to Do Them Both

It’s the holiday season, and you’re thinking about throwing a party for your friends or family. Or maybe it’s time to throw a company holiday party, but you’re not sure how to do them both! In this blog post, we’ll talk about the differences between personal parties and company parties and give tips on making them successful.


What are the key differences between throwing a company holiday party and a personal holiday party?

Company holiday parties are usually larger in scale and more formal than personal ones. They typically involve a dinner or buffet, and sometimes entertainment or a band. Company parties also often have a specific purpose, such as thanking employees for their hard work during the year or celebrating a company milestone.

Personal holiday parties are generally smaller and more relaxed, with no strict formalities or dinner service. Personal parties allow for more fun and creativity. They can be themed or even involve games.


What are the key similarities between throwing a company holiday party and a personal holiday party?

  • You should stay true to yourself and who you are as a person or company, but have fun with it!
  • Always keep your guests in mind when planning the details of the event.
  • They both usually take place in December/January around the holidays; however, they don’t necessarily have to occur during this time frame!


How do you nail planning both your personal and company holiday party?

Ask for help! You don’t have to do it all on your own—delegate tasks to your friends/family and your planners who are excited to help out. You will be able to relax and enjoy the party planning process more. Also, make a timeline! This will help keep you organized and on track as you plan your perfect holiday party.
