 Alpine Events is here to help with with some planning advice from one of our Sr. Sales Associates, Amanda Wood!

Planning a corporate event is hard. Between finding the right food, settling on decor, and seating everyone at the right table, it can be intense. We’ve been in the industry for a while, which means we’ve picked up a few things along the way. Let us contribute to your next event through a few helpful tips and tricks. 


Set the budget you want to adhere to and stick to it. Budgets can often make us feel pigeon-holed into being less extravagant. However, knowing what you can and can’t do early on will set the framework of your event. If you are able to see exactly what you can afford from the beginning, you can more easily bring your vision together.

Choose a Theme and Format

Vibes don’t just “happen.” Steer the boat and create the energy that you want to see. Whether you are using us for our stellar backdrops, lighting, or linens, you’ve got to have the proper setup in order to throw the event of the season!

Select an appropriate location

Matching the power of the aesthetic with the location will help take your function to the next level. Pick your venue according to the theme and creativity that you are trying to bring to the table for your attendees. 

Get Social (Media)

Get the word out! Make use of your social media channels to spread the word. Add photo-worthy event accessories to your space, snap a few pictures, and get  your guests excited and ready to party. Promoting your festivities through photos, especially curated images specific to your gathering, will be essential to getting the turn out that you want and need. Don’t be afraid to think outside of the box.

Guest List

What would a celebration be without the guests? Curating your guest list to encompass a diverse group of people that you want the event to reflect is key. Fashion creative invites–digital or physical–and get to getting! Bring on the network, friends and families!


Leave your guests with something to remember. Give your guests a takeaway to look back on through customized décor, a culminating ambiance, or catered table settings.  Personalizing the party details to make your guests see who you are as a company as well as how you care for your guests, helps to show off the integrity of your business.

Do it big and do it well when it comes to planning for your next corporate blowout. Don’t leave your guests feeling as though they have attended yet another corporate event–make them feel as though they want to go to another one. Let’s collaborate and bring a little bit of you into your next celebration!
