Great ideas for your year-end function!

Great ideas for your year-end function!

Spring is here and we’re already looking forward to the summer festive season, and that means one thing – end-of-year parties! If you’re planning a function for your company, here are some ideas to inspire you, from our year-end function venue near Pretoria. Karaoke: There’s nothing like standing up and letting loose with the microphone to create a bonding experience with your team! According to the University of Oxford, singing together is more than just fun – it’s more effective at bringing people together than any other activity they tested. With a disco theme and a simple karaoke machine, your party is sure to be a win. Get active: Serotonin, the happy hormone, is released during exercise – and if your company is on a health kick, then getting active can be a fun year-end experience! There are plenty of activities suited to all levels of fitness, from treetop and nature walks to yoga and paintball. After a day out in the countryside, treat your employees to a fabulous local lunch or dinner experience to round it all off. Las Vegas extravaganza: Recreate the excitement and glamour of a night out in Las Vegas by setting up your own casino! Decorate your venue to match the theme and ask guests to dress in black tie formals for extra atmosphere and hire a singer or band for entertainment! This is the perfect theme if you are having an event that’s just for the adults. Picnic: Picnics are the best way to enjoy our incredible weather and the beauty of the outdoors – and they’re ideal for less formal year-end parties. They offer a lot of flexibility too, making them great for family-friendly events where you can invite entertainers to add to the fun. Luxury picnic baskets filled with goodies are a great gift that your employees are sure to enjoy! Please also remember to take the weather into account for a company picnic and ensure that your venue can provide you with an indoor space in the event of a rainy day.

Looking for a function venue? Find your perfect match!

Finding the perfect venue for your function is about more than renting a roof over your head – it’s about finding a partner who offers the services and space to make your event a success. Here’s what to look for to find a high-quality function venue: Capacity: Whether you’re hosting a year-end function for your entire company and their families or a small get-together to celebrate a milestone birthday, your venue needs to have a space that suits the size of your party. Too big and your guests will be lost inside it, too small and everyone will be stepping on each other’s toes. Location: From a great view to an easy travel distance, the location of your venue is a very important factor. In addition to having a short travel time for your guests, there needs to be sufficiently secure parking as well as a wow-factor in terms of the gardens or view. Event space suitability: The function venue has to be suited to the type of event you are hosting as well as the needs of your guests. For example, you may require a family-friendly venue, an outdoor space for an informal picnic or braai, or wheelchair access for guests. Services: The type of services offered will change from venue to venue, so be sure to get all the information you need directly from the venue itself. Some venues offer a range of catering options (both formal and informal, activities (including teambuilding activities) and additional services like set-up and take-down services. Some venues are happy to accommodate additional service providers (for example, DJs or kids entertainment providers) while others are not. Event management: The best function venues will be able to help you plan and deliver a wonderful event through their in-house event management team. This team is a great resource who can answer any of your questions, help manage your event and go the extra mile to make it truly memorable. Function venues for team building, birthdays, year-end functions and more!  At Idle Winds, we know just how important it is that every detail is correct for your event and that everything goes smoothly.
