Christmas time in the workplace often includes an office holiday party where employees and management gather together to celebrate the end of the year. The wording on the party invitations is key to setting the theme and tone of the party so employees know what to expect.
How to Word the Invitations
Choose a wording style for the invitations based on the type of party -- whether formal or casual -- as well as one that matches the company's environment and image. For example, a casual party invitation might start with "Come join your co-workers for a holly jolly Christmas party complete with drinks, food, fun and more!" versus a formal invite stating "The Law Office of John Miller cordially invites you to celebrate the holiday season with your colleagues." Keep the wording style consistent throughout and select a color and background art to match the tone.
What to Include on the Invitations
The invitations should list the date, time and full address of the party location. State the type of party: formal, semi-formal or casual. Include whether a full meal will be served or just appetizers and drinks, as well as if employees are allowed to bring a guest. Note the RSVP date and state how an employee can respond to the invitation, providing an email address or telephone number to contact.
