How to Host a Corporate Christmas/Holiday Party

Now, learn how to host a corporate holiday party your employees will never forget. 

Purchase Holiday Decorations

Holiday decorations will be the key to creating a festive environment for your party. If you’re not sure where to start, then we recommend focusing on garland, Christmas lights, wreaths, and, of course, a Christmas tree! Decorating is important, especially if you’re hosting your corporate Christmas party in the office. You don’t want employees to feel as if they’re returning to work, so get inspired with these Christmas party decor ideas

Cater Festive Food

Cater popular holiday food, like ham, stuffing, and casseroles that people would expect around the holidays. We also recommend catering desserts that are decorated with the holidays in mind. For instance, green and red sugar cookies or peppermint cakes. Don’t forget to take into account employees’ allergies and food preferences so that everyone is included! 

Host Friendly Competitions

An effective way to encourage employees to attend the office holiday party is with a fun competition! Fun holiday competitions will motivate employees from all departments to get involved and meet others. The holiday competition options are endless:

  • Decorating Gingerbread Houses 
  • Gift Wrapping Races
  • Blindfolded Cookie Decorating
  • Best Christmas Dessert

Competitions like these will also give employees something to look forward to when returning to the office. Raise the stakes by offering rewards and prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.

Rent Entertainment

It’s not unlikely for some of the people in the office to be uninterested in baking or holiday activities. To include everyone, we recommend renting classic arcade games that everyone in the office will recognize! Arcade games will foster fun competitions and laughs that will make the night fly by. If you don’t know how to start your search, try browsing our holiday party game rentals; these are our most popular rentals during the holiday season. From air hockey to ping pong, we have everything to ensure your guests are having fun.

Offer Memorable Gifts

Don’t let anyone leave the party without a holiday gift! Make sure your employees feel appreciated by giving them a gift that will remind them of their fun night. Many offices do Secret Santa or White Elephant to get everyone involved in gift-giving. 

However, if you’re unsure of who can attend the holiday party and partake in a gift exchange, then we wouldn’t recommend doing a gift exchange. Instead, you can offer company swag or memorabilia of the night. A popular choice our clients make is renting our photobooths so their guests can take pictures to bring home with them or hang in their cubicles! Give us a call if you need help picking a photobooth!
