Struggling for ideas for your next client party? Embrace the season in your theme. The autumn is bursting with warm colors and evokes feelings of togetherness. As we approach the end of the year, the fall provides a warm-up for the oh-so-social holiday season. Drive home the spirit of the season with these fun fall client party ideas.
Get haunted. From corn mazes to haunted hayrides, the autumn offers plenty of fun activities for families. Book a hayride at a local farm and invite your top clients and their families to enjoy an evening of spooky adventure.
Carve it out. Pumpkin carving is serious business at this time of year. Plan a pumpkin carving party with your top clients and their families. Supply the pumpkins and the tools and encourage your guests to carve the most creative design in their pumpkins. Then, give a prize to the most creative one.
For large parties
Party like it’s 1621! You don’t have to replicate a huge Thanksgiving feast to thank your clients for their business and referrals. However, a nice sit-down autumn-themed meal with a few of the staples such as turkey, fish, squash and pumpkin pie is sure to express your gratitude and help you build your relationships with your best clients. Keep with the autumn theme and incorporate the colors of the season in your decorations for the dinner as well as the beverages. Find a recipe online or on Pinterest for a specialty pumpkin, apple or cinnamon-flavored beverage to serve to your guests.
For small gatherings
Taste the season. Nothing says fall like a good harvest, and in areas where wine grapes are plentiful, a tasting at a local winery with your top clients is a great way to say “thanks.” Your clients can sample a variety of wines from the area while socializing with one another.
Cheer on your team! The fall is all about football. Plan a tailgate party to cheer on your local NFL team or the closest college team. Encourage your guests to wear the team’s colors and bring their favorite foods to cook on the grill.
