Roses are red, violets are blue, life is busy, and so are you. So is anyone. Good thing we have a Christmas Office Party to get excited about.
However, if you are the party organizer, December might find you frantically searching for corporate event ideas.
You have to offer the most unforgettable time at a Christmas party.
To be honest, though, there’s no need to put unnecessary pressure on yourself. Your colleagues only want a bit of time to bond and share lovely presents and memories.
So what you ultimately want to provide is a low-key, friendly atmosphere that is also in line with your company culture. Let’s get going and see a few ways you can do that.
Use Photo Booths for Extra Happiness
Not often you have the chance to get all dressed up for a fancy event. However, when you do, you better make sure it gets recorded somehow.
There are plenty of photo booth providers that offer customizable services to suit your corporate fun day.
Besides, you will offer employees a priceless occasion to create great memories with their families or colleagues.
Potluck Dinner Is a Winner for a Christmas Office Party
This is one of those corporate event ideas that are so at hand that they could be off your radar entirely.
You can make it fun and play Secret Santa, but instead of regular presents, you can have attendees share Christmas food or kitchen products.
It is not often that you get to share food with your colleagues. However, when you do, it is nice to make it memorable and fit it into a Christmas-themed gathering.
Fancy Dinners – Corporate Event Ideas That Never Go Out of Style
Give this party concept new life by including a special guest. Like Ice Beat Factory, whose acts are as cool as it gets (pun intended). Their specialty is multimedia performances including:
- ice sculpting
- compelling music
Now this is an extra special Christmas glam, isn’t it? Just take a look:
It is always a good idea to celebrate the diversity within your company.
Starting from here, you can think of a special kind of corporate party, where each department teams up and designs or suggests a set of activities.
Treasure hunts, board games – the list is limitless. You provide a master plan, and they come up with the corporate event ideas.
Storytime and Parties? Why Not?
Everybody loves Christmas stories, right? So why not translate that into a Christmas corporate party?
To be more specific, you can put together a storytelling activity. Participants are teamed up, then required to sit in a large circle and create sentences including their last name.
The crazier, the better the laugh at the end, when the sentences will be randomly assembled. The winning team could be rewarded with a day off by a corporate Santa.
Christmas is all about getting together with family and friends.
This is the main thing to keep in mind whenever you throw a Christmas office party. If you succeed in conveying a homely vibe, this will be one of the dearest memories your co-workers will cherish.
3 Hilarious Acts Which Prove Comedy Is the Secret to Fun Christmas Events
When you are in charge of organizing fun Christmas events, you want to make sure everyone will have a fantastic time.
It is nice to plan all sort of activities, little games and maybe some cool contests, but wouldn’t it be more interesting to book entertainment, as well? After all, professional comedians are well-known for their high-energy, hilarious jokes and how they manage to engage with their audience.
Fun Christmas events are not as exciting if you do not include comedy, so our advice is to consider these three hilarious acts for your Christmas office party.
1. Paul Aldrich
Paul has been performing in churches, theaters, comedy clubs and on TV for over 25 years now. He delivers 100% clean comedy which is mainly based on his hilarious observations.
Paul is also extremely talented at musical impressions which have been seen on Showtime, at The Improv and at countless events throughout the US and overseas, as well.
He has been performing as a singer and guitarist ever since he was in high school. While he was working on his BA, Paul became a volunteer for the Young Life organization and started to perform skits and use humor to teach teens about the Bible.
We believe Paul Aldrich is a great fit for a Christmas event because of his original songs about the Bible and his clean comedy acts.
Below is a quick sneak peek from one of his many performances.
2. Dustin Nickerson
Dustin Nickerson is a young and extremely talented clean comedian. He is only in his thirties, but he already managed to become a two-time finalist of San Diego’s Funniest Person and the winner of the San Diego Clean Comedy Competition.
Another big and personal accomplishment is the fact he has been married for more than 13 years and has three kids already.
When he is on stage performing, Dustin likes to draw the audience into his life by telling jokes about the struggles of being a parent and being married.
Here’s a small preview from one of his shows where he talked about Christmas Eve and how that is like when you have kids.
3. Bean and Bailey
Bean and Bailey is an acoustic comedy duo formed by Bradley Bean and Jackson Bailey. They met while they were students and they began writing comedy and music since then.
After college, both got a day job which they decided to leave after four years and started their careers as professional comedians.
Bean and Bailey have been performing their clean comedy acts at corporate events, church events, colleges, comedy clubs, conferences and cruise ships. They have also traveled quite a lot, all across the US and in Canada as well to entertain all kinds of audiences.
You can see in the video below a small glimpse into Bean and Bailey’s expertise when it comes to fun Christmas events.
