manhattan event venueThanksgiving is coming up, which means it’s the perfect time to start thinking about how to spice up your Manhattan event venue to get in the spirit. Creating a warm, cheerful environment for your team will help them feel comfortable outside the office, and help everyone get excited for the holiday season. Here are some of our favorite ways to liven up your event space for your next offsite:

Message board.
As your employees arrive at your offsite space, have a message board set up where they can write down what they’re thankful for and pin it up. Have fun with it by making it Thanksgiving or fall-themed, like by adding leaves and using red, yellow, and orange markers. Encourage your team to be creative – they can be funny, serious, or thoughtful!

Festive name plates.
Instead of having your company pick a seat anywhere, set up designated leaf name tags on each of the tables or chairs. Organize them so that people get to sit next to someone from a different team or department, so everyone gets to meet someone new. If you want to get really fancy, you can attach the leaf tags to a glass of sparkling cider, so your employees can be refreshed before starting the meeting.
