We’re halfway through October, which means that the holiday party season will be here before we know it. If you want to beat the holiday rush and book a Syracuse holiday party venue before it’s too late, now is the time to start thinking about what you want for your 2023 corporate holiday party.

Popular Holiday Party Trends for 2023

Whether you’re looking for a holiday party venue in Syracuse that’s up-to-date on the latest in party trends, or you’re just looking for some corporate holiday party inspiration, our team at Sky Armory has put together everything you need to know about holiday party trends for 2023.

Bold Colors and Decor

When it comes to 2023 holiday party trends, the key word is bold. Bold colors, bold centerpieces, bold decor. Afterall, Pantone names Viva Magenta the color of the year for 2023. Bold, jewel-toned shades of magenta, green or purple are going to be popular among holiday party decor this year. Accenting these jewel-toned colors with pops of gold or silver will help to create an elegant vibe for your holiday party.

For centerpieces and other holiday party decor consider bringing in those accents of gold or silver. Custom corporate branding has been especially popular in the past few years, so creating custom branded centerpieces and decor will likely continue to trend during the 2023 holiday party season.

Engaging Experiences

Hosting a corporate holiday party is an excellent way to boost employee morale and increase employee engagement. But why should the engagement stop there? During the 2023 holiday party season we’ll likely be seeing corporate holiday parties that offer experiences to really engage employees.

Some activities that we’ve put together for corporate events in the past have included team building activities, walking tours and casino gaming.

Be sure to keep these experiences light and playful. After all, a corporate holiday event should be a break from the four walls of your company’s office and allow your team to bond and enjoy themselves after a year of hard work.
