Staff Christmas Party Ideas
- You’ll be able to accomplish much more when you’re not the lone organizer of a Christmas party for the entire staff. Ask the more social staff members to be a part of the organization committee. The inputs brought forward by all of you can be utilized to come up with something interesting.
- Admit it, it does get a little messy when you have to party around a bunch of office equipments, desks, and pile of files. Moving a party to some other location that is more open and festive in ambience can liven up the party. Examples being: a hotel or a restaurant, a country inn, discotheque, or any other non-traditional location.
- Any Christmas party, for the staff or for other people, cannot be complete unless a well decorated Christmas tree stands in the vicinity of the party location. Keeping in mind the size of the party location, arrange for a Christmas tree. Get the whole staff to decorate the tree. Also decorate the party location, but not so much that the place becomes congested.
- A party isn’t a happening one if music is not a part of it. And a Christmas party is no different from any other party. It’s the music that will get everybody charged up and ready to rumble for the rest of the event. If because of budget constraints, you cannot book a band or a DJ, atleast arrange for a high quality sound system that will liven up the party. Staff members can bring CDs of their favorite party songs.
- What’s a good Christmas party without good food and plenty of drinks? With the drinks, however, be responsible and include both, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages into the menu. It’s important that each employee’s interest is looked after. As for the food section, book a good caterer.
- Instead of gift sharing, plan on handing out gifts and other items to charity or donation. Ask each staff member to bring something: toys that are not used, clothes that are not worn, or any other non perishable item in your house that you’ve thought of throwing away. Bring whatever you can and pile them up in different boxes. Give these boxes to an organization that collects such items on Christmas for people and kids who need them.
