If you were to defer expenses, that means that you would have to recognize assets.

However, in order to recognize asset one of the criteria is: it is probable that the expected future economic benefits that are attributable to the asset will flow to the entity.

So, future economic benefits will not flow into the entity from those Annual Staff Party. Generally, it is not the case and such expenditure is recognized in period in which it is incurred.
