Corporate Holiday Theme Parties

Corporate Holiday Event Venue - Arbor RoomWhen the 2008 recession was at its height, many companies scaled back, or out right cancelled, the corporate holiday party. In the years since, the office Christmas party has slowly made a come back, seemingly returning to pre-2008 levels last year. According to a poll by the Society for Human Resource Management, 72 percent of respondents attended a company celebration, up from 68 percent in 2011 and 61 percent in 2010 and 2009.

The signs are clear − corporate America is ready to celebrate again.

If you are planning a corporate holiday event, there are a number of ways that you can make it memorable, including decorations, menu selections, entertainment, all which emanate from a theme.

Themed Christmas parties are a great way to get everyone into the holiday spirit and make fun memories together. This bonding opportunity (besides being fun) is a great way to build corporate identity and camaraderie between employees – potentially leading to greater corporate profits!

 Corporate Holiday Party Themes Ideas

  • Choose a favorite holiday movie and revolve the theme around the characters, setting, and plot. A few movies to pick from are A Christmas Story, Bad Santa, Elf, A Christmas Carol, It’s a Wonderful Life and Miracle on 34th Street.
  • Decorate the party space like a tropical destination, with palm trees and other tropical island-inspired decorations. Hire luau dancers, and set up a barbeque station. Hand out leis, grass skirts, and tropical flowers for the partygoer’s hair.
  • Make the Christmas party a black tie affair and give everyone an opportunity to dress in gowns and tuxes.
  • For party planners who are an even more ambitious, extend the haute theme further and make the affair Mad Men chic.
  • Throw a costume party! Have attendees dress up in 70’s or 80’s clothes, as their favorite movie character, or make it a masquerade ball.
  • Give employees the chance to be kids again and transform the party space into a carnival. Rent booths, entertainment, games, and workers to run the entire event. Serve fun food like cotton candy, popcorn, hot dogs, and soda fountain drinks.

 Tips for planning the perfect holiday party:

  1. Choose the date and pick the venue

This should be the first thing one must do when hosting a holiday party. Requesting a date is easy at The Warrington. Just visit our website or call 215-343-1630 to speak to one of our event planners.

  1. Make the guest list

Once you have settled on the date, its time to develop the guest list and, like Santa himself, check it twice. Consider inviting people who may not know each other so there are new faces for people to start up a conversation with, or arrange seating that will encourage mingling. Send out a “save the date” invitation ASAP so your guests can plan to attend your event first, before other offers come rolling in. Give them something to talk about and make them anxiously await YOUR party.

  1. Pick the menu

The Warrington catering services offers sit-down, station, and buffet menus for any type of special event. We specialize in fresh quality food, boldly displayed, with the perfect fusion of color, taste, and presentation.

4. Use the internet for inspiration

The seemingly infinite information found on blogs and websites provides access to creative ideas to discuss with our planners. The event team at The Warrington has started a Pinterest page  to provide you with some inspiration to get you started. We invite you to follow us for the latest trends in professional event planning, gourmet food, elegant décor, and more!
