T’was the night after the party, when all through the office. Not a creature was stirring, not even old Doris.
2017 is speeding by and December is creeping closer on the calendar, and that means one bright, shining thing: it’s time to start planning your office Christmas party for 2017.
Check out our top 5 ideas for your office Christmas party in Brisbane.
Office Xmas Party Idea 1: Trivia with Taste
Planning a mid-week bash? Celebrate Xmas in the Long Bar on Wednesday nights from 7pm for a session of Trivia with Taste. Eat, drink, be merry, and be even merrier when your team scores the night’s foodie prize valued up to $1000. We suggest grabbing the connoisseurs in the office who like to step up their sandwich game with brioche buns or (heaven forbid) a quinoa salad.
Office Xmas Party Idea 2: Tiki Cocktail Party
OK, so the Christmas savings you were hoping for didn’t exactly pan out (Santa, you’re bleeding us dry), but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a tropical getaway! Take your holiday to Fox Island with a Tiki themed cocktail party on Dandy’s Rooftop. Whip out the long-forgotten Hawaiian shirt and hit the cocktail jugs and canapes before your Christmas gift to the rest of the office – a stint on the dance floor.
Office Xmas Party Idea 3: Christmas sweater contest
We’ll make this one quick, ‘cause there’s no way we’re leaving sweaters on for long in December. But tradition is tradition, and ugly sweaters sit in the ‘practically mandatory’ category of Christmas garb. Buy a winner, pick out grandma’s gift sweater from 4 years ago, or (if you really want to one-up the competition) knit your own. Award prizes for best and worst design on the day and watch your coworkers become close-knit friends.
Office Xmas Party Idea 4: Long luncheon
It’s the age-old Christmas tradition – drink your fill by 3, be in bed by 7. Cut the work day short with a long luncheon at The Fox. There’s a veritable stocking full of spaces and menus for your long luncheon function (try saying that three times quickly), so check out The Fox’s function packages for more ideas. Rest assured – whether you pick platters, canapes, or a la carte menus, our Christmas miracle cocktail jugs are ready to fuel the office banter.
Office Xmas Party Idea 5: Disposable cameras
Yes, there will be photo evidence, so yes, you will need to behave yourself under the mistletoe. Set everyone up with a disposable camera for the night and develop them all the week after, once the cumulative hangover drops off. It makes for a fun bonding activity and means you’ll have plenty of buddy pics to pin to the staff room corkboard. Watch the photos get blurrier as the timestamps get later.
