Saratoga Springs holiday party ideas

From local entertainment to festive food and beverage, there are many ways to make your 2020 holiday party memorable. This festive season is more significant than ever. After a year full of challenges, you and your guests deserve to celebrate your triumphs. Gather your friends and family for a small get-together! Or, bring your team together for an annual company holiday party, Saratoga-style.

Holiday party entertainment

The right music sets the tone for your holiday party, big or small. If you’re hosting an intimate dinner, it’s a good idea to create your background music playlist ahead of time. To get folks out of their seats and onto the dance floor, hiring a DJ might make more sense. Our favorite holiday party entertainment is always a live band — consider supporting local artists like the performers at Caffè Lena.

Choosing decor for your festive event

Feeling stuck on decorations for your Saratoga Springs holiday party? Our dedicated event specialist can help! At Saratoga Arms, we like to think differently. We approach each and every festive event with a fresh, creative perspective — you won’t find any cookie-cutter holiday parties here.

This holiday season, we recommend choosing decorations that are as beautiful as they are sustainable. One of the biggest 2020 holiday party trends is organic greenery. Opt for natural, durable, eco-friendly arrangements like potted plants and flowers. Metal straws look chic and work well as party favors for guests. Finally, conserve energy by using natural lighting and candles where possible.

Giving back to the community

After such a challenging year, we encourage folks to support the local community as much as possible. Consider sponsoring a local children’s charity or nonprofit organization this year. Ask your guests to donate non-perishable food items or toys — ‘tis the “season for giving,” after all. Adding an element of giving back can reinforce your company’s mission, and unite your team together through a common purpose.

Look local for food and beverage

With its dynamic food and beverage scene, Saratoga Springs has so much to offer your event! At Saratoga Arms, we source as much as we can from local vendors and purveyors. We do this, not only to support the local community, but to ensure that your catering is fresh, innovative, and always delicious. We also carry local wine and spirits to ensure your cocktail bar is well-stocked for an evening of revelry!
