If you are tired of the same office Christmas party themes year after year, it is time to look for something new and exciting. There are plenty of great ideas out there and, with a bit of creativity, you can enjoy a fun, festive occasion that offers something a little different.
You don’t have to break the bank when it comes to organizing a staff party. Even if you don’t have a big budget, you can still organise a great bash!
Amazing race Christmas party
If you want to get your staff out and about and save the office furniture from drunken antics and other mishaps, an amazing race Christmas party is an excellent idea. You can set up challenges and pit stops along the way and can all meet at a central point at the end to award prizes and celebrate. You could also step outside your normal office environment and take part in Tank Driving Days from places such as https://www.armourgeddon.co.uk and put on department up against another.
An ugly Christmas sweater party
If you are on a tight budget, an ugly sweater party is a perfect choice. Run a competition to see who can wear the ugliest seasonal sweater and centre the party theme on kitsch rather than classy. You will find this theme easy to decorate and you can add some festive flair on a very small budget.
If you have a large break room or cafeteria, you can transform it into a winter wonderland using fake snow and a few other props. If you have office reception furniture you could create a comfortable seating area and add a few artificial snowflakes. A winter wonderland party provides plenty of décor inspiration and the theme is not hard to pull off.
If your budget is a bit bigger, a masked ball is a great way to celebrate the festive season. Encourage staff to come dressed to the nines and enjoy a real humdinger of an event complete with a band and jester to keep everyone entertained. A mask-making station is also a great addition and there should be plenty of feathers, glitter, and sequins to add pizzazz.
If you want to encourage the spirit of giving, you can host a party that sees staff creating toys or similar for those less fortunate. This is a fun way to celebrate and there is nothing better than the gift of giving!
