5 Company Holiday Party Ideas

The leaves are changing and Halloween is right around the corner. Before we know it, it will be time for the holidays. The season calls for many celebrations, so when it comes to throwing your Indianapolis holiday gathering, you want it to stand out from the rest. To throw a unique event that will raise the bar for years to come, here are a few ideas to making your next company holiday party memorable.

Select a creative theme.

Holiday parties don’t need to be red and green tinsel with Christmas twinkle lights. Take advantage of gathering with your co-workers by doing something fun like a ski lodge theme or even a mid-winter luau.

Add a healthy dose of competition.

Part of the joy of company holiday parties is the ability to bond with coworkers outside of the office. A little friendly competition will not only keep your guests engaged, but creates a fun element of entertainment as well. One of the most popular options around the holidays are casino themed parties.

Embrace the giving spirit.

Incorporating a charitable aspect to your event can inspire employees to make a difference in the community. Consider a winter coat drive where guests can drop off coats at the start of our event and donate them to a local charity. For activities, consider a card writing station where guests can write cards to troops overseas or contact your local family nonprofit and offer to wrap presents for children.

Strike a pose.

Traditional photo booths bring some nostalgia to your event and photos are a fun souvenir that your guests can take home. Depending on the theme of your event, fun props can be incorporated too. These photos from the party will capture some great moments between coworkers and add some extra fun to your event.

Serve fun food.

Instead of serving a traditional holiday dinner which guests are sure to get plenty of during family and friend events, do something different with food stations that will give your guests the ultimate variety.   Choosing food stations rather than planning a served meal will allow your guests to create their own festive dishes. Hot chocolate bars, popcorn stands, pasta stations and more are sure to be crowd pleasers at your Indianapolis corporate holiday party.
