Windows On The Lake Holiday Parties

Posted in: Activities

Are you looking to host a holiday party, but not sure if you want to invite a bunch of people over, only to leave your house with a huge mess, and clean up? Are you looking for the perfect location to have your end of the year company holiday party? Well look no further than Windows on the Lake.
Just coming off of another successful Thanksgiving dinner event, the time has come where we start hosting amazing holiday events. While we are known for being one of the best Long Island wedding venues, we are also one of the best banquet halls in Long Island. We have hosted a variety of events from Bar/Bat Mitzvahs to some of the best corporate events around.
If you are looking to have a work party, this is a perfect place. With in house catering you can break away from your workday for an extended company holiday lunch. At only $24.95 per person, you’ll have your corporate event at a beautiful setting, right on Lake Ronkonkoma, in a beautiful venue, while paying less than renting out a ballroom in a hotel, or a large room at a restaurant. Treat your employees to the type of luncheon they deserve. Show them that you’re thankful for all their hard work this year.
If you would rather host your company party during the evening, we have made Windows on the Lake available for holiday parties mid week. Starting at only $29.95 a person, again, you’ll be able to host an event, where you are the only focus of the night. Hotel Ballrooms, and Restaurants will have to deal with other customers, but here at Windows on the Lake, you’ll have the place to yourselves, and all the focus will be on you and your employees. With that kind of VIP treatment, your employees are sure to brag to their friends about how well their employer treats them.
Be sure to ask about our competitive weekend rates! While businesses may want to host their parties midweek, we understand that hosting a party for your friends, or even a family gathering, will be better suited for the weekend. We’re happy to share the experience with you of hosting an amazing lakeside holiday party. Whether you are looking for a classy, elegant evening with adults, or you prefer to have a family friendly casual event, we have the flexibility to give you the evening you are hoping for.
Contact us at Windows on the Lake to book your holiday party. And look out for our New Years Eve Party! We’re already taking reservations! Happy Holidays!

Planning a holiday party

Posted in: Uncategorized

It’s that time of year again! Time to get out there and make your appearance at all those holiday parties going on. Of course, those can be a lot of fun, but haven’t you always wanted to throw your own holiday party? Maybe you’re nervous because you’ve never hosted a party around the holidays. Well, there is nothing to worry about. Just follow these tips, and you’ll have a great holiday party. So great that your friends will hope this becomes an annual event.
Where and when are you having it? Before you plan anything else, figuring out where and when you are having your party should be the first items on your list. Once you know when the party is, then you can nail down where it is. You can figure out how many guests you can invite, how much you’ll need to decorate, and of course, the amount of food and drinks you’ll need to provide. But make sure if you are not having the party at your house, you should book the venue of your choice right away so no one else gets it before you. Many people will try to book bars or restaurants, but there are other venues to choose from that might be nicer, and a more enjoyable than a restaurant. For one, you don’t want to have to share a venue with other parties. Be sure you look to some of the best banquet halls in Long Island. Many of them will have great rates, and they’ll be a quality venue you’ll have to yourself. Be sure to also check out some Long Island wedding venues. The holidays are generally the off season for wedding venues, so you’ll be able to find a great place, at a great price. Especially if you book your party on a Friday evening.

Get those invites out!- If you are having the type of party where you want people to RSVP, be sure to get those invites out right away. The sooner you get a head count, the better prepared you’ll be when purchasing food and drinks. If you’re needing RSVP’s, you’ll still want to get invites out as soon as you can because there are a lot of parties this time of year, and you want to make sure people save that night for your party.

Food- Some of these Long Island wedding venues will offer catering, and if you are planning an elegant night with a sit down dinner, then you should really check into these banquet hall catering plans. Even if you are just going to have a party with finger foods and appetizers, check with your venue. There is a good chance they’ll have a package that will offer that, and if so, it’s one less thing to worry about.

Activities?- Now that you have your venue and food situated, you want to make sure to decide if you’re going to have games, dancing, gift exchange, or any other activities at your party. There are a lot of fun holiday party games you can play, but if your friends are not the type of people who enjoy party games, a simple gift exchange can be fun. For the most entertainment, be sure there is a price limit. Something in the range of $15-$20. Or maybe even have a gift exchange from things they found at a dollar or thrift store. This encourages creativity from guests, which will lead to a lot of laughs and great memories from your party.

Music- Music can really make or break a party. Of course, you’ll want to have a playlist with holiday themed music. But don’t be afraid to add some contemporary music as well. Everyone enjoys a holiday tune, but after a couple hours they’ll be ready to dance to music they hear throughout the year. We suggest a great company for long island bounce house rentals  that will keep your party entertaining.
Hosting a holiday party can be stressful, but if you do it right, it will be simple, yet fun. Follow these simple guidelines and you’ll be sure to have a party your friends will want to attend for years.
