It’s coming up to Christmas, which means the office parties are almost here! If you’re in charge of the big event this year and want to do something a bit different from the same old party, keep reading for some alternative ideas.
1. Christmas Office Lunch
Keep it simple with the classic Christmas lunch. This easy option is more affordable and casual than dining out or hosting a large celebration, but just as fun. Able to be held anywhere, a Christmas lunch party allows your team to get together for a lovely lunch and then have the rest of the afternoon off to absorb the alcohol. Just kick start the festivities with some good food and remove the stress with catering from Pinjarra Bakery – our large selection of catering options are perfect for corporate events!
2. Christmas Cocktail Party
Upgrade your office Christmas party with a cocktail night! Why not take this opportunity to reward your hard working employees with some classy drinks and a great time? Go ahead and celebrate the end of the year with some fun Christmas themed drinks, balanced out with a little bit of tasty food. Just remember to include mocktails or alcohol free options so no one has to miss out. Want to go bigger? Consider a cocktail making class at your event!
3. Christmas Quiz
Crank up the competition and find out which of your coworkers are competitive with a fun quiz night! You can get into the Christmas spirit with some xmas themed questions or alternatively, design the questions to be specific to your office. Just split the office into even teams of about 4-6 people, depending on your organisation’s size. Make it even more interesting with prizes like vouchers, hampers or maybe even some time off work!
4. Christmas Team Building Day
If you’re looking to host a more interactive Christmas party, a team building day could be the perfect solution! Get staff engaged and talking to people outside of their usual work circles with some fun activities – examples include christmas bingo, secret santa, cookie decorating, gift wrapping challenges, best outfit challenges and more. Alternatively, you could try some more office themed tasks like who can type the fastest, a competition for the most festive workspace or an office chair race!
5. Christmas Scavenger Hunt
There’s no better way to get into the Christmas spirit than with a scavenger hunt! Get your colleagues to team up in teams of two or small groups and send them off around the office to tick items off their list. Make sure to have a great prize at the end to encourage participation and a time cap so people don’t get bored. You can find a scavenger hunt list online or make one yourself – don’t forget to ask for photographic evidence of a task being completed from the participants!
