Gobananas top tips for planning your Xmas function in Melbourne

Those options all look pretty amazing right? But before we get to that happy stage when we can book in some of these magical Melbourne Xmas Party ideas, we’re going to give you the gift of GoBananas handy hints for hassle free planning:

• Plan ahead – while we can usually rustle something up last minute, it is way easier on both you and us if you start the booking process a few months early. Plus, if you leave it to late the chances of your chosen activity being booked out are pretty high.
• Set a budget – That way we know what sort of activity we can work with and you know exactly what your options are from the start. Besides, no one really wants to ask the boss for extra booze money.
• Don’t have too many cooks in the kitchen – you can’t please everyone and now is not the time to start trying. Keep the final decision making to just a few select people otherwise things can get complicated very quickly.
• Don’t sweat the small stuff – sometimes logistics means that things can’t always work out exactly how you imagine; we’ll always do out very best to get you what you want but a little bit of leniency can go a long way.
• But most of all – HAVE FUN! If you book with us your guaranteed a stellar Xmas Party in Melbourne, so enjoy the planning process and definitely take all the credit when this amazing Melbourne Christmas Party comes into play.
