I love the holidays! It’s a time for family and friends to get together, for exchanging of gifts, for decorating your home in the most festive ways, for hopefully getting a little time off to relax before the new year, and of course … for company parties! I can’t think of a better way for employers to show their staff that they appreciate them than to host a party (small or big) with tasty food and drinks and time to all be together outside of work. This past weekend, we planned an at-home company party that really encompassed all of these things. Check out all of the details!

Festive decorations? We kept it simple but super festive incorporating live eucalyptus garland created by Mulberry Row in all areas of the home (where the party took place starting with this entry console), small strands of twinkle lights, and lit candles for ambiance. 

Delicious food and drinks? You can’t have a party without it! We set up their formal dining room to house a station of really yummy food and an adorable farmhouse bar rented from Signature Party Rentals.

Here’s another look at that gorgeous garland atop a gray linen table runner. Love this simplicity!

Many guests frequented this bar and were excited to try the signature Paloma cocktail and Lemon Drop shots our bartender whipped up. I personally love the details best … Pinecones and sprigs of eucalyptus, cute cocktail napkins, and black bar glasses to match the party’s decor. 

The living room was another space we used for this particular party. It was a great place for guests to mingle and to watch a special show put on by mentalist Riccardo Berdini later in the night. 

I love the way this garland looked wrapped around the already existing accessories in our host’s home. It really fit right in and gave a festive holiday feel. 

We incorporated candles and pinecones in all trays and decorative dishes too. Oh what fun!

Company swag? We had that too! Each employee (and their significant other) got to take home a special tote bag with the company’s logo filled with swag … T-shirts, hoodies, and eco friendly water bottles created by Invite Amy, and softer than soft Rachel Miriam throw blankets embroidered with the company logo as well. 

Did I mention delicious food? The cuisine at this party was seriously next level starting with tray passed appetizers including Jon and Vinny’s signature mozzarella sticks and so many other yummy things catered by Carmelized Productions.

A “Jon and Vinny’s” station was set up with more signature dishes including their gem lettuce with parmesan and bread crumb salad, pastas (The fusilli was insane!), delicious garlic bread …

… and those meatballs though! We can’t wait to work with this amazing catering company again!

For dessert? Tray passed strawberry cheesecake squares and chocolate fudge brownies! Is your mouth watering yet? This hamburger is not made of meat but rather ice cream! An action station was set up to give guests a taste of this delicious dessert as well!

Guests didn’t seem to want to wander back into this back bar area of the house, but its beautiful garland detail will not go to waste! I hear another party is happening here again this coming weekend! 

We couldn’t be happier with how this company party came together and hope that each employee feels as appreciated as we do by these dream clients! Keep checking back … We have so much more fun holiday decor, gift wrap, and events to share in the next coming weeks! Happy Holidays from Side by Side Design!
