Deanie's Seafood offers alternative to the office potluck

Are you tired of the same old holiday party and looking for a fun alternative to the office potluck or ugly sweater party? Deanie’s Seafood offers two private dining rooms and a beautiful courtyard tastefully decorated for the holidays at our French Quarter location.

Plan a holiday party you know your colleagues and clients will enjoy at Deanie's Seafood in the French Quarter and receive a free bar upgrade or appetizer course. With convenient parking, two private dining rooms and a beautiful French Quarter courtyard tastefully decorated for the holidays, Deanie's showcases an intimate and friendly environment to celebrate the season.


Deanie's offers a variety of buffet and prixe fixe menus  and off-site catering to create a memorable event at your home or office or in our French Quarter banquet rooms and courtyard.

Here are some ideas to spice up your holiday party:

  • Set up a Monte Carlo Room for a Casino-themed party
  • Bring in a Karaoke machine, better yet have a Christmas Carol Karaoke
  • Start the evening with a haunted history tour of the French Quarter
  • Reverse Christmas in July— a beach-themed holiday party
  • Santa’s Workshop—Sponsor a family for Christmas and have everyone bring a gift to wrap and tag at your holiday party. To keep with the charitable theme, have a children’s choir perform or hold a silent auction to raise money for charity.
  • Have a Masquerade Ball, complete with the world's first temporary tattoo carnival masks
  • Exchange Christmas ornaments or better yet have a Christmas ornament-making table
  • Offer a photo booth with fun props for memorable holiday photos
  • Classic holiday theme, evoking traditional parties of the past, the return to quintessential Christmas decor—like wreaths, trees, and nutcrackers
  • Create a gothic Nightmare Before Christmas-themed party
  • Get a gift for yourself - have each person bring a wrapped gift for himself, have everyone open a gift and then guess whose gift is whose
  • Offer a white elephant gift exchange
  • Themed gift exchange—gifts based on a color, a letter, a movie or any creative theme—or Christmas cast-off gift exchange

How are you planning to make your holiday party a memorable event this year?
