6 Steps to Plan the Ultimate Office Christmas Party

Everyone looks forward to the festive season and for businesses, there’s one thing staff are looking forward to – the Christmas party! That’s why we’ve put together a list of steps you should follow to ensure you host the very best Christmas party.

Start planning early

Have you ever tried to plan a Christmas party with only a few weeks to spare? It takes a surprising amount of time to plan and leaves you saying that you’ll prepare it well in advance the following year, but you never do. Well, this year is the year!

Venues tend to get booked up early so it’s a good idea to start planning around July or August. During this time you can figure out your budget, ideate the venue and think about the activities you want to complete.

Manage your budget effectively 

It’s important to effectively manage your budget so that you can make the most of the money you have available to create the very best Christmas party. When looking at your budget you should:

When you plan your Christmas party early you’ll have the opportunity to shop around for the best priced party packages or venues. This will allow you to make the most of your budget.

Pick a venue 

Choosing a venue that suits what everyone wants can be difficult and a little overwhelming. But with a little planning and getting staff involved in the decision making you may find it simpler to find a venue. During your research, you should:

When choosing a venue you’ll want to consider how close it is to the office and how long it’ll take for employees to get to and from the location. At the end of the day, you don’t want to book somewhere that’ll take the majority of attendees too long to get to. This could cause a lot of people to decline your invitation.

Plan activities 

Depending on the type of Christmas party you’re holding, it can be fun to complete some activities. This could be as simple as a Secret Santa or best Christmas outfit award. For those looking for more extravagant activities, you could go bowling, book an escape room or go go-karting.

Consider catering and food options

Once you’ve chosen your venue you can start to think about catering options. If you’re hosting your party at a restaurant or bar this may not be something you need to think about. However, they may offer you the choice of their normal menu or set Christmas menu.

If you’re holding your party at a venue that doesn’t offer food options, you might want to look for a caterer. When doing your research you should:

Invite staff

It sounds obvious but it’s important to remember to invite your staff. This can be done through online or mailed invites or by adding it to their calendars. After all, you want to ensure everyone attends after you’ve put so much hard work into planning the party.

Imagine it – Christmas dinner has just been eaten and the family have migrated to the sofa with a tub of celebrations at the ready. It’s on you to put on a Christmas film, but which one?

Well, we have you covered with some of our personal festive favourites below. We guarantee no Hallmark Christmas films here!

Elf – For the family

Buddy (Will Ferrell) was accidently transported to the North Pole as a toddler and raised to adulthood among Santa’s elves. Unable to shake the feeling that he doesn’t fit in, the adult Buddy travels to New York, in full elf uniform, in search of his real father. As it happens, this is Walter Hobbs (James Caan), a cynical businessman. After a DNA test proves this, Walter reluctantly attempts to start a relationship with the childlike Buddy with increasingly chaotic results.

Home Alone – For the mischievous

When bratty 8-year-old Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) acts out the night before a family trip to Paris, his mother (Catherin O’Hara) makes him sleep in the attic. After the McCallisters mistakenly leave for the airport without Kevin, he awakens to an empty house and assumes his wish to have no family has come true. But his excitement sours when he realizes that two con men (Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern) plan to rob the McCallister residence, and that he alone must protect the family home.

The Grinch – For the grumpy

In this live-action adaption of the beloved children’s tale by Dr. Seuss, the reclusive green Grinch (Jim Carrey) decides to ruin Christmas for the cheery citizens of Whoville. Reluctantly joined by his hapless dog, Max, the Grinch comes down from his mountaintop home and sneaks into town to swipe everything holiday-related from the Whos. However, the bitter grump finds a hitch in his plans when he encounters the endearing Cindy Lou Who (Taylor Momsen).

The Holiday – For the hopeless romantic 

Dumped and depressed, English rose Iris (Kate Winslet) agrees to swap homes for the holidays with similarly unlucky in love Californian Amanda (Cameron Diaz) for a much-needed break. Iris finds herself in a palatial Hollywood mansion while Amanda navigates the lanes of a picture-perfect English village. Soon enough, both lovelorn ladies bump into local lads perfect for a romantic pick-me-up.

Die Hard – For the controversial

This may raise a few eyebrows and potentially has the power to cause a Christmas day bicker, but we’re putting it in as a Christmas film any way!

New York City policeman John McClane (Bruce Willis) is visiting his estranged wife (Bonnie Bedelia) and two daughters on Christmas Eve. He joins her at a holiday party in the headquarters of the Japanese-owned business she works for. But the festivities are interrupted by a group of terrorists who take over the exclusive high-rise, and everyone in it. Very soon McClane realises that there’s no one to save the hostages… but him.

Bonus Christmas Film – Love Actually – the modern Christmas classic

We liked this movie so much we showed it on our big screen back in early December paired with 5 delicious wines!

Nine intertwined stories examine the complexities of the one emotion that connects us all: love. Among the characters explored are David (Hugh Grant), the handsome newly elected British prime minister who falls for a young junior staffer (Martine McCutcheon). Sarah (Laura Linney), a graphic designer whose devotion to her mentally ill brother complicates her love life, and Harry (Alan Rickman), a married man tempted by his attractive new secretary.
