It is common knowledge that a successful party requires quite a bit of planning and preparation. We plan the food we are going to serve, the decorations, and the party activities in hopes that our event with be a smashing success! We plan ahead mostly because we want our guests to have a good time and enjoy all of our hard work, but did you know another important part of party planning is preparing for the party clean up? That’s right, and Sonlight Cleaning Service has a few post-party clean up tips to help your office party clean up be a raging success.
1. Trash Can Placement
After an office party, it is quite common to find all sorts of trash in even the most peculiar of places. As people are socializing, they aren’t thinking about where they are going to throw away their hors d’oeuvres. Parties are a great time for your team to build relationships and become a more cohesive work group, and a goal in office parties is for employees to enjoy the party and have a good time getting to know other members of your team! However, trash being left around the office can be time consuming to clean up and make your party, and office, seem cluttered and messy. One way to greatly decrease your clean up time while increasing the organization of your party is to bring out extra trashcans and place them around the party space to help your guests easily clean up after themselves. Many party stores even sell disposable trashcans to help lessen the need to borrow trashcans from other spaces in your facility, which can be frustrating if the trashcan isn’t returned to the correct place.
2. Paper Towels
Spills will happen, and one of the best ways to reduce after party clean up is to have paper towels, or even nice looking napkins, available at appropriate locations. You can even have a quick grab spill clean up basket complete with paper towels and a small container to hold wet towels all ready to go. Keep your portable spill clean up station in a location that is out of sight but easily accessed so it can be grabbed quickly. When spill messes are left behind and forgotten about, they can quickly become a sticky mess that attracts dirt, bacteria, and insects. If you are having a party that is a bit more refined, paper towels may not be appropriate, but you can place high-top tables close to exits for people to leave their drinks, and on each table have a neatly stacked of cocktail napkins or even a few origami-folded linen napkins available to grab in case of a spill.
3. Disposable Everything
If it is easy to do, it will more likely be done. Carefully chosen paper and plastic party supplies not only can add a pop of decoration to your cutlery, but it is one of the number one ways to reduce the amount of clean up after an office party. Paper and plastic party goods can be purchased to match your theme, can cater to any level of taste, and save you hours of dishwashing after the party. It’s much easier to throw away serving spoons and plastic platters than it is to take the time to wash and store each piece. It may seem that this particular solution will add to waste and be bad for the environment, but have no fear! Many of these items are recyclable and/or biodegradable, so you don’t have to feel so guilty about throwing them away.
