Corporate Christmas Event Ideas
The office Christmas party is the social event of the year! If you’re planning a festive do but are in need of some inspiration, why not try some of these corporate Christmas event ideas to get the party started.
A corporate Christmas event is a golden opportunity to enjoy some top quality entertainment. Stand-up comedy and magic shows are a great option if you want to create a warm and informal atmosphere where employees can let their hair down and enjoy a laugh.
Your entertainment doesn’t always have to occupy centre stage. To make a big impression, hire fire eaters, acrobats, jugglers or musicians to wow your guests throughout the venue as they enjoy their drinks. Why not capture the amazing atmosphere at your corporate Christmas event with Shoot System’s Walkabout Photography system?
Themes and fancy dress
Theme parties are a great excuse to ditch the formal office vibe and join in with some light hearted fun. Christmas jumper parties will get everyone in the festive spirit, while a masquerade ball is a glamorous affair that’s easy to dress for. Carry on your party theme with a photo booth filled with props.
These days, corporate Christmas events are so much more than canapes and tinsel in a hired hall or bar. More unusual and interesting venues are now available for hire throughout the country – from museums to castles, you can take the opportunity to thrill and impress your colleagues and clients.
If you can’t stretch to a party in a palace or Christmas in a castle, don’t despair! Make use of a green screen and instantly transport your guests to exotic destinations. Backdrops can be anything you like, so you can produce pictures of partygoers on the moon, sipping cocktails in Hawaii or enjoying Christmas in Lapland with Santa. Green screen photos and videos are really easy to share online, so your corporate Christmas event will be the talk of the town (and beyond).
Christmas is a time to eat, drink and be merry! Treat your team to a full Christmas dinner with all the trimmings – or if they’re tiring of turkey, why not opt for an alternative cuisine that’s equally decadent?
Don’t just slope off to the pub; organise a visit to a distillery or brewery for a discerning festive outing with a difference. It’s educational as well as enjoyable!
Fun and games
At the end of a demanding year, give your hardworking colleagues a way to let off steam. Interactive games and activities bring the whole team together – some effective corporate Christmas event ideas might include putting on a ping-pong tournament or taking everyone trampolining.
