How to invite people for a Christmas party?


The season of festive cheer is here and you as an HR executive want to invite your office colleagues to join in the fun and joy at a Christmas party. You are confused by the choice of words to be used as the event is an informal one but your guests are from the office. The wordings should be casual but the structure should be formal. You don't want to lose the fun of the party by using a dull office vocabulary. Entice excitement among your guests with the help of creative words and decorative cards to be used for the invitation. Read on to find sample invitations in both email and on call format.

Things to keep in mind when inviting people for a christmas party:

1. Use the right combination

The right combination of vocabulary and images will set the tone for your party. Generally, office party can be a cause of anxiety among the employees as they are going to share the floor with their higher ups. Your wordings should stress the congeniality of the event so that excitement instead of anxiety is the general feeling. Your guests should thank you for the great time that they had at the party. Moreover, the party should set the tone to begin the New Year on a positive note, with better understanding and team spirit.
