It’s not too early to think about plans for your company holiday party. And, of course, you want this year to be better than the last. We asked our experts for this season’s most popular trends.
Top Holiday Trends include:
1. Create a festive ornament wall for a background for photos.
2. Offer a Thin & Crispy Breadstick Bar with Assorted Dips.
3. People love comfort foods – offer something fun like Pigs in a Blanket served atop a shot of beer.
4. Provide a Hot Chocolate Bar with graham cracker-crusted marshmallows.
5. Serve creative “mocktails” that are just as appealing as alcoholic beverages. Garnish clear glass jars with candy canes as a garnish or freeze peppermints in ice cubes to add to the drinks.
6. Serve candy cane and gingerbread martinis.
7. Consider offering food stations rather than a buffet.
8. Bring back the Wii or, better yet, Wii Rock Band.
9. Make your party more like a New Year’s Eve party as many people don’t or can’t go out on Dec. 31 these days.
Talk to your catering sales manager for ideas on how to personalize your Holiday party and make it a one-of-a-kind memorable evening for guests.

Construction Update: Look for extended stay options at The Tremont House, A Wyndham Grand® Hotel, next year. Mitchell Historic Properties (MHP), which owns the hotel, is currently working on converting the 1858 Berlocher Building, located at 2311-2313 Mechanic Street, to fourteen luxury, extended-stay guest rooms with fully-furnished kitchens, high-end furnishings for living and dining space featuring one to two king-sized bedrooms. MHP is in the construction drawing phase of the project and will begin construction in November 2016. These rooms would be added to The Tremont House inventory and targeting extended stay guests. This project does not affect the Tremont Ballroom housed in the 1890 Davidson Building located on the west side of the block.
