Problem with birthday celebrations with your co workers? Or you just want to celebrate for a job welll done with your co workers? Here are some things you can do.
1. Plan ahead of time.
If planning for a party to celebrate a co workers or your friend's birthday it is best to plan ahead of time what is needed to be bought or assign who's going to bring the food.
2. Finger food is the way to go.
If you have limited budget and also you don't have a lot of time to prepare I would suggest to get some finger foods like chips and dip, fondue dip and other food that you can easily prepare before you head out to work.
3. Think about the budget.
One of the things that I really consider when I handle get together is the budget that each person has to give out. If you don't have enough budget, just work with what you have. If you work with a team, having a team fund is best, but don't splurge too much if you have a team celebration.
4. Pot luck is never old
I know most people can't afford to wake up extra early just to prepare food for 30+ people for a pot luck party. If you can't prepare it you can buy it at a restaurant.
5. Don't feel too burdened in bringing what you have.
Sometimes people I know feel burdened in this kind of situation because its stressful sometimes since there will be side comments about what you brought. My only advise is don't mind them since you still made an effort to prepare for this celebration.
And lastly, not everyone are in favor in company celebrations but don't be put off by them, its their personal preference to be like that so just enjoy the party and have fun!
