How to Throw a Fun Corporate Holiday Party

If you’ve been tasked with planning this year’s corporate holiday party, you may be wondering how you are going to make it fun. After all, you want it to be enjoyable, not awkward or uncomfortable or, perhaps worst of all, unattended. That’s a lot of pressure! Don’t worry, here at NOAH’S Event Venue we are event experts and we’ve got you covered with lots of fun ideas that are simple, easy, and will make your company holiday party a can’t-miss event and an undeniably fun celebration.

 

 

Celebrate the Past Year

 

A holiday party is a great way to celebrate all that the company has accomplished this year. Above all, this is your chance to treat employees and make them feel valued. It’s a great idea to incorporate senior leadership and ask them to give a brief recap of all that was accomplished and get people excited for what is to come. Hosting your corporate holiday party at a dedicated event venue like NOAH’S is a great way to show employees how much their work has meant for the company. If you want to take it a step further, gifts are always a fun option. You can provide a little something for everyone or raffle off bigger prizes to top performers. No matter what you decide, make sure that the party feels like a celebration, not an obligation.

 

 

Eat Good Food

 

In my opinion, food is a must for any good celebration. For that reason, we want to help you find the best treats for your party. If you’re looking to hold a high-class corporate holiday party, consider hiring a caterer for a formal sit-down dinner. We have a list of our preferred caterers for each location to help make this easier. Simply visit NOAHSEventVenue.com, select MOMENTS Magazine from the navigation, and choose your venue. That will bring up our digital wedding magazine that includes listings for all of our preferred vendors in your area. After that, you just need to contact the vendor that looks like it will fit your party best!

 

However, if a full catered dinner isn’t for you, consider going lighter with a dessert bar or finger food. Additionally, a food competition is always a fun option. Challenge employees to see who can make the best of a certain item, be it a holiday-themed dish, dessert, or something specific. At the party, give everyone a ballot to vote for their favorite, and the creator of the top treat gets a prize.

 

 

Play Some Games

 

Playing some fun holiday-themed games is a great way to make your party a must-attend event. However, it’s important to make sure that you have the space for whatever you decide to play, that’s why we recommend holding your corporate holiday party at an event venue like NOAH’S, rather than squishing everyone into the office breakroom. So, you’ve got the space. Now, what do you do? Any google search will bring up tons of holiday-themed games for a party, some great, some less so. To help avoid some of those less successful options, we’ve gathered a few that could be great for your celebration!

 

  • White Elephant Gift Exchange:
    • Exchange funny or ridiculous presents amongst those who want to participate. If you aren’t familiar with the rules, visit WhiteElephantRules.com
  • Ugly Sweater Contest
    • Encourage employees to show up in the most ridiculous holiday sweater they can find and vote on the best one. Even if you’ve done it before, this is still a fun way to get employees to show off their personality.
  • Cookie Frosting or Hot Chocolate Station
    • Set up a station where employees can frost and snack on holiday cookies or mix in various sweets to create custom hot chocolates. Unlike some other activities, this one doesn’t have to be a competition (though it can be if you want!). It can simply be a fun thing for people to do as they chat. 
  • Holiday Themed People Bingo
    • This quick and easy game is a great way to help people get to know members of other teams and kickstart the party atmosphere. You can learn more about how to play at party.lovetoknow.com.
  • Ugly Sweater Murder Mystery
    • This holiday-themed murder mystery card game is especially great for a chill option that party-goers can play in smaller groups. To get the game, check out QueenofThemePartyGames.com.

 

 

Regardless of how you choose to celebrate, we want to help you have the most fun corporate holiday party ever here at NOAH’S Event Venue. Our customizable spaces make it easy to elevate your celebration and truly party in style.
