Planning Dos for a Corporate Halloween Party

Do candy inspired cocktails

Far from being corny as this pun, candy-corn and other treat-inspired drinks are a big trend this season, and would be a great addition to your Halloween party. Of course, done wrong, such sweet treats can go horribly wrong. For cocktail ideas, Montreal nightlife offers many nightclubs that rock this trend the right way, such as Candi Bar, which serves many delicious drinks to serve as inspiration, many with actual candy in the drinks. Well connected in Montreal nightlife, Montreal event planners also have connections with the city’s best bartenders, and can assure the highest degree of quality available for this and other aspects of your corporate event.

DO a murder mystery dinner

Murder mysteries can be tedious, sure, but if you have ever been to a quality one, you know how fun they can be, and of course this is a great idea for a corporate Halloween party. You can trust our insider connections and knowledge to connect your group with the best murder mystery company, whether you are interested in fine dining at Montreal restaurants or for the fun to come to you.

DO prizes for best costumes

It may seem obvious, but this is a common activity for staff Halloween parties because it is always such a hit. Inform your staff of the prizes on the invitations, and they will immediately have reason to be engaged and participate in your event. Make the prizes worthwhile, cover a variety of categories, and save the contest for later on in the evening, when anticipation will be at optimal peak.

DO reserve a private room at a Montreal nightclub

Not only is Montreal nightlife teeming with hundreds of Halloween parties every year, but many Montreal nightclubs are comprised of very unique venues. Whether housed in eerily old buildings or clad in fantastically bizarre décor (or both), these one-of-a-kind settings are ideal for that other-worldly feel you want for the fresh perspective it would bring to any corporate event, and especially for a Halloween party.

Don’t worry, it’s not too late to throw the ultimate, beautiful nightmare of a Halloween party, minus the nightmare of planning it. The leading Montreal event planners are here to help.

Planning Don’ts for a Corporate Halloween Party

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012

Have you harvested your brain for corporate Halloween party ideas and come up short? If you want to make sure your Halloween party is scary good and not scary bad, here are some idea don’ts for a corporate Halloween party:

DON’T throw it in the office.

They see that place enough, and not one of them wants to clean up all that glitter the next day (or rather, continually, for weeks). One of most lucrative aspects of any corporate event is the new perspective that is gained from a new environment, and staff parties should be no exception…Especially in a city as haunted with Halloween activities and nightlife options as Montreal!

DON’T bob for apples.

Women’s costumes will get wet, some will either get upset over ruining their costumes, or worse, get hooted at for being a ghost that’s a little too transparent afterwards. While most women would be fine with this kind of a thing, it’s wise to just avoid the token female who will ask “What male chauvinist came up with this as a game? Why didn’t we just have a wet t-shirt contest?”

DON’T enforce a dress code or overly rigid theme.

While you should have a theme for every corporate event, Halloween is all about anti-conformity, and dressing however you want, with no repercussions. If everyone (many of whom are busy at work 5 to 7 days of the week) are forced to all go out and find a particular kind of costume (especially of an overly specific type), it will feel as though their job is basically asking them to not only work, but pay for no compensation…Plus, its just less fun. A theme for your Halloween party is fine, but the theme should either be optional for attire or be loosely open to interpretation.

By the way, it’s October 16th and you are still trying to plan your Halloween party??? Don’t worry, we can arrange your flawless corporate event with so little notice, it’s spooky.
