A corporate event is a great way to create a sense of community in your workplace, utilize team-building exercises, and show your employees that you care about their contributions to your business’ success. Decorating for a corporate event will make the difference between a gathering that feels forced, and one that is relaxed and welcoming.
Let’s take a look at some of the most important things to consider, based on our experience decorating for corporate events in the San Jose area.
We first recommend that you consider exactly who your employees are and what you can do to offer them a memorable corporate event. Age range, interests, hobbies, and more—it’s important that you make everyone feel welcome by offering decorations or a theme that appeals to a variety of audiences.
Party sandwiches and pizza are classic catering ideas for corporate events, but if you make the effort to bring something new into your event, you employees will notice. Corporate events have recently been bringing in street vendors to add a local community touch. Also, if you’re thinking of a smaller corporate event, try theming a potluck—BBQ and breakfast for lunch are some popular options.
Use color! A neutral color scheme can be elegant, but ensure that your corporate event is unique in its decorating style. Showcase your most recent achievements and show your employees how excited you are about your business by using branding-related colors.

Planning activities is a tricky task. Corporate events mean a wide variety of interests and personalities, so it’s crucial that you offer a variety of active and more stationary activities. If you have access to outdoor space and decent temperatures, try a low-stress team sport like Bocce. Or, if you’re strapped for space and are indoors, try borrowing a Nintendo Wii console and set up a Wii Sports activity area.
