< 1 minute read | Marianne  Chemuel

It’s that time of the year again! The holiday season is creeping up and all we can think of is a nice, long summer and making great memories. What better way to start it off than with a work Christmas party that everybody will remember and be buzzing about in the office. We got our elves working to put together seven ways you can spice up your upcoming party.

Themes

Nothing makes a party more fun than dressing up. Having a themed Christmas event will have everyone excited and planning their costumes. That doesn’t mean you’re limited to dressing up as Santa or Mrs. Claus either. Have everyone become involved and suggest their ideal party theme, making sure it’s fun, different and memorable. Whether it be an all-white party, monochrome theme, or a classy suit and tie, make sure to pick the perfect location to enhance the guest experience. The Osteria Antica is a perfect Christmas party spot, offering classiness, authentic Italian food and CBD views which will get anybody excited to suit up.

A Year in Review

What better time than at the end of year party to show appreciation and thanks to your colleagues? Creating a year recap video will have everyone smiling at some great memories. It’s also a chance to acknowledge both personal and business achievements.

Cocktail Soiree

Keep it classy this year and spoil your colleagues with a cool, personalised cocktail menu. Have everyone take part to mix up and name their own drinks at the bar. It’s a great way to get creative and you can make it even more exciting by giving a prize for the most popular drink. May the best cocktail win! The LAURENT Gallery is a spectacularly stunning gallery space adorned with modern art and a marble top bar to keep everyone occupied.

Photobooth fun

Say cheese! Make great memories last and have a photobooth at your Christmas party. For something that’s so cost-effective you’ll have your colleagues lining up to take cute, fun photos for them to have forever. Jazz it up by having props that everyone can play around and be silly with. It’ll make everyone smile that’s for sure.

Wine and Dine

Want a more relaxing, laid-back end of year get together? Brie my guest. Treat your colleagues to some wine and swap the turkey for a delicious cheese board at a trendy spot like this cute gathering space located in Bondi. Your guests will be more than satisfied with a picture perfect grazing board and fancy wines as they chat the night away.

Interactive Food Stations

Everyone gets excited when they hear the word ‘buffet.’ Make your event more thrilling with a make your own sushi rolls, a kebab station, doughnut walls and pizza bars. The options are endless and it’ll have everyone stirring with excitement! Important for this is having a large, open area which offers kitchen space, just like the Auditorium.

Gift exchange

Nothing makes a great event more memorable than having a piece of it to take home. Have everyone pick a colleague’s name out of a hat and hold a secret santa style gift exchange at your event. There’s no better way to spread that holiday cheer than buy opening presents.
