The holiday season is nearly upon us which means it’s also time to host your annual holiday party. You may be starting to think about ways to make this year’s gathering a smashing success, but realize you’re running short on time and fresh out of ideas. Look no further than to your friends at SHW for fun and creative options that will minimize the planning stress and maximize the cheer. As event management experts, we know a thing or two about hosting a good party and have compiled some of our favorite Seattle experiences for 2023 that are sure to impress.  

To start, we recommend pairing a local venue with a local holiday experience. Let someone else manage the room setup, food, beverage and cleanup by securing a private room at a local restaurant. If evenings are already booked, or you want to keep it a 9-5 experience, ask about reserving a private room for lunch instead of dinner. Once guests have filled their bellies, get deeper into the spirit of the season and head to a nearby holiday hotspot.
