The holidays are just around the corner, and so is the annual Christmas office party. And with all the buzz that comes with this festive season, you can imagine that expectations are at a high level.
To help you meet these expectations, we’ve rounded a list of festive Christmas party ideas to make the whole planning process easier for you. Find out more about them in the following paragraphs to come.
Sound of Christmas
Music is an integral part of any celebration. Having a playlist for your party is a must, but do it differently this year by adding more spice to your soundtrack.
You can try to energize your audience with a bit of Rock & Roll or, for a more subdued atmosphere, you can try some Jazz. If you’re looking to create a sophisticated ambiance, then classical music is your best choice.
You might also consider having live music to make things even more enjoyable. Nothing more gets people in the festive mood than a big golden harp or a grand piano.
A band with big instruments like Rawhide N’ Rosin would be the perfect fit for your Christmas party. They play a selection of well-known compositions, with a pinch of classic and a fair amount of bluegrass, jazz, and swing.
Their renditions are laser-focused and always hit the right notes, guaranteeing a new listening experience.
For the entire year, everybody had to work together as a team. To change things a bit, you can add the element of competition to your event. And what better way to do that than with a fun holiday trivia quiz.
Company Christmas parties are the perfect opportunity for your guests to test their knowledge against one another and see who comes out on top. As attendees compete against each other, there will never be a dull moment.
There are also different ways to play holiday trivia, so no two games will ever be the same. Besides, you can even use attractive prizes, like gift cards or an extra vacation day, to increase their engagement.
The Main Attraction
One of the most important elements of any successful Christmas party is entertainment. Booking the right artist that will keep your guests engaged is a must. The usual entertainment options are magicians or comedians. But if you want to impress your audience, you can try something different this time.
Opt for an awe-inspiring performer who will leave a lasting impression on your guest. A good example is sand artist Kseniya Simonova. Using only a giant lightbox, sand, and her hands, she creates beautiful and touching stories.
She was once called an internet sensation by The Guardian, and she is the only artist to ever receive two Golden Buzzers on two different series of the Got Talent franchise.
Whether you are trying to entertain your team members or your alumni, you can be sure that her performance has a little bit of something for everyone to enjoy.
Ugly Sweater Competition
One way to have fun with your team during the holiday is by holding the infamous ugly sweater competition. Our festive list wouldn’t be complete without adding this suggestion.
Including this type of activity in your event takes the pressure off your guest to have to wear something fancy or uncomfortable. It also gives them a chance to show off their creativity.
The concept is pretty simple. When you send the party invitations, encourage guests to wear their ugliest Christmas sweater.
At the event, everybody will vote on who their favorite contestant is. To spice up the competition and make sure that people will try their best to look their worst, consider handing out awards to the top three people who gathered the most votes.
And let’s not forget about the best part of having an ugly sweater day: all the fun social media pics you’ll get after the party is over.
