As an event planner, your New Year’s resolutions most likely include being even more creative when putting events together. After all, you can never have too many ideas under your belt in this field of work.
So because the early bird catches the worm, here are four original company party ideas to keep in mind for 2018 – one for each one of the four seasons – you know, to keep things interesting.
1. Secret Garden Upscale Tea Party
Spring is the time of the year when company events tend to move outside so that everyone can enjoy the beautiful weather and fresh air. Spring-themed events with colorful decorations, fresh food, and outdoor teambuilding activities will always be popular.
However, why not take this idea to the next level and suggest an outdoor British-inspired tea party where guests get samples from a wide selection of teas? Think about antique decorations, a piano playing in the background and guests lining up to get their tea leaf readings.
As far as the menu goes, classic finger sandwiches with cucumber, salmon, and egg salads, sweet little treats, teeny tiny pastries, and scones are a must.
2. Wine Tasting Outdoors
Summer is the time of the year when most people are thinking about holidays and spending more time outdoors.
Wine tasting somewhere outside is bound to please the vast majority of guests because who would not enjoy sipping on flavorful wine while enjoying the nice summer breeze?
Moreover, if you can book a venue in a fantastic setting that overlooks the ocean, mountains or luxurious landscape views – that is even better.
It is a sophisticated idea that deserves to be paired up with an elegant choice of entertainment. We recommend either a musician or a live event painter who can capture the beauty of the scenery and the event’s atmosphere.
3. Harvest-Themed Company Party
One of the best company party ideas for the fall is a harvest-themed celebration that falls right in line with the mood of the season. Just picture a barn-like venue, pumpkin decorations, apple pie and hot-spiced cider cocktails to help guests loosen up.
Also, fall provides plenty of inspiration for fun activities meant to engage attendees and promote teamwork:
- Pumpkin carving;
- Finding a prize hidden in a haystack;
- Rolling a pumpkin to the finish line using nothing but a broom.
4. A Medieval, Fantasy Holiday Party
Company events tend to increase in number during the holiday season. So you are going to need more than a few company party ideas when winter is coming.
One that will have everyone buzzing for weeks is this: a party that will remind guests of medieval times and which incorporates elements such as:
- Freshly-baked white bread, sugared almonds, mulled wine.
- Medieval-looking props that guests can take photos with.
- Games. Break guest into four groups corresponding to the four leading houses fighting for power and have everyone compete in related challenges.
As far as the aesthetic of the event goes, take inspiration from the famous Game of Thrones series. It is an excellent fit for a company party taking place during the cold season, and it is something unexpected you know it is going to stand out.
Everyone is going to remember being a part of such an imaginative concept, which is likely to get some referrals as well.
