Design Your Office Christmas Party in Five Easy Steps
So you’ve worked out how many guests will be invited to your Christmas party, which venue you are going to hire and how much you are allowed to spend. What now? How will you add the wow factor that will get everyone raving about this year’s Christmas do? Answering the following questions will shape your event.
1. Would you like a theme for your party?
A theme is an exciting way to make your party extra special.
You may decide that the theme is simply Christmas, or you may choose something a little different, like Narnia, Winter Wonderland, Fun Casino, Masquerade Ball, James Bond, The Great Gatsby, Hollywood etc. For more theme ideas, go to our Corporate Parties page.
Ace Tones will bring in themed props to set the scene. The entertainment, table decorations and even the dinner menu can be designed to complement the theme you choose. And it doesn’t stop there. The theme can be reflected in the smaller details, like the seating plans for the tables and the name cards. We like to be thorough and make sure the guests really get immersed in the party theme.
2. How will you break the ice at the beginning of the party?
As the guests arrive, you will want them to get into the party atmosphere as quickly as possible. You may also need to bring together people who don’t know each other very well. Here are some great ideas for icebreakers that will fit well in a corporate Christmas event:
- Fake paparazzi
- Award winning magicians
- Rodeo reindeer
- Selfie pod
- Mobile bar with Christmas themed cocktails
- Christmas themed side stalls – Why not a Christmas pudding shy?
You might also consider some all time popular entertainments such as light-up strolling human tables or a famous lookalike. A themed entrance walkway is another way to quickly bring the guests into a party atmosphere.
3. How will you liven up the Christmas dinner?
The following is a list of entertainers that will fill in any gaps in the menu, or in conversation, without demanding continuous attention from the guests:
- Singing waiters and waitresses
- Jazz band
- Table magician
- Dancers or cabaret
4. What kinds of after-dinner entertainment will you have?
Now is the time for the guests to give their full attention to fun activities and games.
There are lots of options including disco, live bands, dance acts, comedians, casino tables, Karaoke, Batak Wall, Giant Scalextric and tribute acts, to name but a few.
Practically any indoor fun from the extensive Ace Tones’ activity list can be deployed here, so give free rein to your imagination! And of course, our event specialist are at hand and always happy to advise.
