January Corporate Kick-Off Party Ideas

The way your business goes into 2020 sets the tone for the year to come. Show your clients and employees you’re ready for a successful year with an elegant, off-the-charts kick-off party. From roaring cocktail receptions to full-service sit-down dinners, the Mugwump team partners with companies all over Jacksonville to create momentum going into the new year. With the right event rentals and expert planning techniques, you’re sure to throw an event that’ll be raved about for months to come. 

Keep it Classic with a Sit-Down Dinner

You simply can’t go wrong with a four-to-seven-course dinner with all of your associates. Dinners encourage your guests to get to know one another over great wine and delicious food. Of course, the simplest option on the list quite possibly requires the most planning.


It’s crucial to select just the right floral arrangements, place settings, lighting, room decor and so much more. If you opt for this type of kickoff party, we recommend working with a professional event planner. It’s smart to partner with a company like Mugwump that has access to top-quality event rentals, on-site florists, and experienced event planners. 

Cocktail Receptions are Casual Yet Opulent

It simply doesn’t get better than spending time with the team and clients you value over delicious drinks and plenty of hors d’oeuvres. Cocktail receptions often work well in more intimate indoor/outdoor spaces, so you have many venues to choose from around Jacksonville. 


Event rentals like 3D props, a custom-themed bar area, and small floral arrangements are perfect for cocktail parties. Combine the perfect decor with one of Jacksonville’s premier venues and you’re sure to throw a reception unlike any other. 

Thank Your Clients with a Welcome Reception

A welcome reception gives you and your company plenty of freedom to create a great event. Because welcome receptions are up for interpretation, this fun kickoff party could occur over brunch, dinner, or any time in between. The Mugwump design professionals have a few favorite ways to make the most of your reception:


This is a great opportunity to show your clients and employees how much the company cares about them. Use professional video and sound services to display photos and videos of the company’s successes over the past year. Partner with Sight & Sound and Mugwump to create a beautiful stage area for your welcome speaker(s), presentations, and more.
