It’s time to take down the skeletons and pumpkins and start to deck the halls with boughs of holly! The holiday season is just right around the corner and what better way to get into the holiday spirit than to decorate the office! It’s also a great way to get everyone excited and ready for annual holiday office party! Holiday parties are a great way for companies to show their appreciation for their employees while celebrating the accomplishments of the company from that previous year!
One of the biggest complaints from event planners is that many people tend to dip out on the annual company office party, which can be pretty disheartening considering how much work it takes to plan one of these events. So one great way to increase the amount of people that attended your event is to deck out the office in holiday decorations! These also tend to boost people’s mood, which is a great thing that the whole office can benefit from too since the holidays tend to be a very stressful time for everyone! Keep reading to learn more about how you can bring out the holiday cheer in your office, which can then lead to a great holiday corporate event!
No matter what your style is, everyone can admit that decorating for the holiday season can bring a new sense of excitement and warmth to the area. Whether you’re looking to decorate with hues of blue and silver or you’re wanting to bust out the Santa hats, decorating your space can really take it to the next level. This can be especially great if your holiday party has a specific theme. Decorating for that theme can be a fun way for you to get everyone excited about the holiday party. It also helps bring awareness to the party so that people are more likely to put it in their calendars and actually show up! Many of us are visual learners, so having those visual aspects up for the employees to look at can be a subtle but effective way to get the word out about the party. You could even do some sort of advent calendar to count down to the party! Try hiding incentives like drink tokens or other treats that can only be redeemed at the party.
Start Some Fun Competition
A little bit of healthy competition can be a fun and lighthearted way to get your mind off of work. Some fun competition can be a great way to get everyone in the office involved and bring out their creative side! If your office or company has teams of various specialties that work closely together it’s an even better way to get everyone working together, especially if most people work one-on-one with each other. Another idea is to get those who might not work closely with one another working together in the spirit of the holidays! See who can have the most creative wall or desk decorations. The skys the limit with this one! Offering a prize to the best winning team that’s presented at the corporate event can also be a fun incentive to get everyone in the holiday spirit.
Bring On The Food
We shouldn’t have to do a lot of explaining with this one but one of the best parts about the holidays is the food! The holidays are surrounded by incredible food that tends to only show up around November and December. Whether it be your grandmother’s special pecan pie or your favorite holiday coffee flavoring, its safe to say there’s plenty of good eating to go around. While we tend to enjoy these foods in the comfort of our own homes or at gatherings with friends and family, bring some holiday cheer to the office! Bring in your favorite holiday treat to share with others! The holidays tend to be a stressful time so, bringing in some yummy treats can help de-stress and help everyone!
A secret Santa can be a fun way to exchange some inexpensive gifts with your team or coworkers. It can also help you get to know some of your teammates better. You could even exchange your final gift at the party to make sure that everyone is at the event! Secret Santa doesn’t have to be expensive or do too much, it can even be something like their favorite candy bar. Getting to know more people in your company can only lead to positive effects and who knows, you may have a new best friend.
