6 Different Company Holiday Party Ideas

corporate holiday party ideasTrying to deviate from the same old company holiday party? Looking for new ideas for your annual company holiday party? Or are you looking to revive an old tradition of showing your vendors your appreciation? We’ve got a few ideas of company holiday parties that can give you and your guests a warm holiday spirit, even in the midst of our cold Wisconsin winters:

Give them a lunch break or afternoon off they won’t forget. Instead of making your employees get a babysitter or a date, book a local venue for a weekday afternoon with delicious appetizers and music or mid-day lunch off site. Find an entertainer to keep them entertained, and set up a gift exchange or company giveaway to give them an afternoon away from the office that makes them feel appreciated.

Treat your employees to dinner and a show. Deviate from the “normal” drunken holiday party with a night at the theater (though the venue doesn’t have to be a theater). At your holiday party, treat your employees to a nice dinner and a musical or holiday show.

Enjoy a tropical holiday. Give your guests that tropical holiday feel without the expensive plane tickets. Book entertainers that give the party a ‘getaway’ feel, such as a steel drum band playing holiday carols. Complete the feel with tropical decorations, drinks and food, and you’ve given your guests a holiday vacation in the Midwest.

Capture kids’ attention at Santa’s toy factory. Give your employees and their families a holiday night or afternoon full of Christmas spirit. Hire elves, a Santa Claus (or find one at the office), and some carolers for music. As everyone enjoys holiday food, bring Santa Claus out to distribute the elves’ packages for a new twist on the traditional holiday atmosphere.

Magical holiday party. Embody the spirit of the holidays with the traditional elements—snow, Santa, elves—and a bit of magic. Hire a magician for your entertainment who can get everyone in the jolly holiday mood by the end of their act.

Make your holiday party an after-holiday gathering. The holidays are a busy time, so make your company holiday party an evening winter wonderland in January or February. Give your employees a snow-themed event complete with an ice bar, hot cocoa sampler table and a warm feel of appreciation. To make sure they don’t have to find parking during our cold Wisconsin winter, book a venue with convenient parking.
