Whether you have found the ideal venue for your annual corporate Christmas party; or even if you’re still on the lookout; it’s once again time to put your thinking caps on and start planning for the party season to beat all others. Dream up a few of those absolutely Cracking Corporate Christmas party ideas this month and start getting yourself and your team corporate Christmas party ready.
Corporate christmas parties take planning and it’s not only about the party theme, but also about what your team can do to get involved; and starting to feel that Christmas party vibe. Getting everyone into the festive mood early will keep everyone buzzing until they get to relax into their well-earned Christmas break. So with that in mind, let’s take a look at how to get everyone involved in your corporate Christmas party 2019!
Menu Options to Make your Mouth Water
Getting your corporate Christmas party menu ready and sent out is an absolute must. This is probably even best provided at the same time as sending out the invites. This way people can make their decisions on attendance and food options with plenty of time to spare. This is also a great time to check for any specific food related requirements and discuss these with your caterers. Catering can be done by the venue itself or, in some cases, provided by an outside catering company. Don’t forget to offer plenty of vegetarian, vegan and healthy options; as well as ensuring there is the ability to include variations on a good range of menu items; so that much of the full menu is adaptable for those with more specific dietary needs.
The Gift of Giving
Prepping for the Christmas party season can often mean organising a secret santa or other means of getting everyone into the festive mood through gift giving. However, why not try something a little different for your corporate Christmas party this year. A great idea is to create a lucky-dip Santa’s sack, with guests bidding on various ‘mystery’ gifts; and then using the process from this to support a charity close to the hearts of those in your business. Gift giving comes in all different forms. So why not put your heads together and come up with a few variations on this years Christmas gifting approach; and then get everyone to vote for their favourite.
Crafty Corporate Christmas Parties
Go Old-School and get your team feeling Christmassy with a little trip down memory lane; and straight into the fun-filled Christmas parties of their childhoods. Creating Christmas party decorations is a great way to really feel that festive spirit. Turn your staff break space into a fantastical Christmas craft fair. You provide the crafts and they provide the inspirational decor. Paper chains, pom-poms, create-your-own crackers and a copious amount of tinsel and glitter. Everyone will love bringing the crafts of their youth into the workplace. Provide a little bit of Christmas party music and it’s a winner. We can’t promise however that you won’t have any trouble getting everyone back to their desks afterwards.
ALL The Options
The best way to get your team Christmas party ready is to ensure they are going to enjoy the night and everything that it brings to the table. Why not give everyone the chance to have their say on every aspect, from the venue choice, right down to the smaller details. Creating online polls is an easy way to get everyone to not only select from a pre-conceived list of ideas, but also to throw in their own additional options for everyone to vote on. Theme, menu style, activities. Put it all up for discussion and get everyone invested in making this the best corporate Christmas party yet!
Corporate christmas parties are a great way to boost morale for your team, so getting everyone involved in the early stages will keep the excitement at the forefront of their minds; and hopefully give everyone a little boost of festive cheer during the lead up to the big event.
