Office Holiday Party Planning

  • b

Yikes! I was just assigned the Office Holiday Party and I'm new to L.A. County. We have approx. 40 people in our office and the budget is $100.00 per person. Not much, I know. We may or may not invite spouses/significant others. I want to but we may not have the dollars to do it.

I am looking for a restaurant or location in the L.A. (Burbank or Pasadena specifically) area to hold a holiday party (dinner or even a luncheon).

I need a location with great food, lots of holiday decor, and within budget.

Any suggestions? Please help!

  1. Is your office paying for the party? Today, one of our Christmas committee members reported that our luncheon will be held at Acapulco Restaurant and will be charging $10.00 per person--we've never had a freebie! That's one reason why I never go and they always tend to pick crappy restaurants to eat at.

    1. how many people?? dinner or luncheon??

        Our office is approx. 40 people. We are looking to do a luncheon. The company will be paying for the event and the budget is now $50.00 per person.

        I need a holiday themed location with fabulous food in the Burbank/Pasadena area.

        Any thoughts?

          The Mrs and I love Mi Piace in Burbank. We have gone there for many special holiday occasions. Their Christmas decorations in the past have been gorgeous. You should stop by there for a dessert, just to check out the place. The owner is Arman (i probably spelled this incorrectly) he'll help you plan everything.

        Yoiu might enjoy going to Nick's in South Pas. The winter-garden under the tent is fresh and delightful, and they always have seasonal plantings for the holidays. The food's wonderful.
