First on the list is a picnic party. Who said the office Christmas party needs to be in the office? Take advantage of the warmer weather and avoid the stress of finding a space large enough to fit the whole team while maintaining social distancing. A picnic party is perfect for getting everyone outside and enjoying the fresh air while indulging in some delicious food and drinks.
If some team members can't attend in person, consider hosting a virtual celebration. There are plenty of online events to choose from, like virtual wine tasting, escape rooms, and even online cooking classes. A virtual celebration ensures that everyone can participate and enjoy the office party, even those who are unable to come in person.
Get into the holiday spirits by adding some extra fun to the party. A Christmas cocktail bar can help everyone unwind after another year of hard work. You can set up bartenders and a beverage package to serve some classic holiday drinks or even create a signature cocktail for the party. Make sure to also offer some non-alcoholic options for those who prefer not to drink.
Another fun idea is to have an ugly Christmas sweater party. Encourage team members to wear their ugliest Christmas sweaters, and offer a prize for the most hideous jumper. Consider hiring a photo booth for the night to capture everyone's colourful outfits. You could even print the photos as unique office décor.
If you're looking for something more extravagant, consider hosting a Christmas cooking party. From an elegant afternoon Dumpling Making or Thai Cooking to the ultimate Christmas Latin American Menu, the options are endless. Have some cold drinks, enjoy the freshly made dishes around the world, add in some great company and you're just about guaranteed to have the best holiday party.
Lastly, for a fun alternative to the classic Christmas celebration, try an around-the-world Christmas party. You can order in food from around the globe, and even feature dishes from some of your international team members' homes to bring them some holiday cheer if they aren't able to go home this year. Why not try Vietnamese, Indian, Japanese, Italian, Mexican, and so much more?
These unique work Christmas party ideas will make the 2023 party a memorable one. Whether you're opting for a traditional holiday party or trying something new and unique, the most important thing is to have fun, relax, and celebrate another year of hard work with your team.
