Creative Ideas for Your Work Holiday Party
The same old holiday parties can get boring year after year. It is time to spruce things up a little bit. Get a little creative with your party planning and create a party everyone will remember. We have put together our top five creative ideas to spruce up your holiday party!
Give Back/Fundraiser - Hold a fundraiser because there is nothing better around the holidays than giving back to those in need. Hold a silent auction or cash bar with proceeds going to the charity of choice. Your employees will love giving back to the community.
Invite Everyone - Don’t hold separate holiday parties for each department, get everyone together on one night. You get to mingle with people you don’t normally work with and everyone starts to bond.
Plan Activities - No one wants to go to a holiday party that is just food and music. Put a little thought into what activities and games your employees would appreciate and have fun with. Games like charades, mad libs or even trivia!
Get Creative - Paint! Nothing more creative than picking up a paintbrush and letting your inner artist out. Even better if there is wine and beer involved. At Pinot’s Palette we have one of our local artists guide you all through step-by-step how to create your very own masterpiece, and we even have a bar filled with great drink options! Bonus points if you turn your paint night into a team building activity like Paint The Boss, Musical Painting or Puzzle Painting.
Have Prizes/Contests - There is nothing people like more than a little friendly competition, especially when there are great prizes on the line. Contests like the best ugly sweater, best cubicle decorations or even who can make the best holiday cookies. People will love that they get to share the holiday spirit with everyone and they may even with a special prize.
