“I booked this for a small works Christmas do (12 people). Bart arrived on time, set up quickly bringing everything he needed. The cocktail menu was great and everyone enjoyed trying different cocktails. Bart stayed for two hours – plenty long enough as my head hurt the following day. To make the evening I ordered in lots of pizza to soak up the cocktails. Bart cleared up and left us to party on. Highly recommend and would do again.”

How do you make an office Christmas party special?

Making your office Christmas party special means thinking outside the box: think extraordinary instead of ordinary! Focusing on the finer details when dreaming up corporate Christmas party ideas will delight your guests. The office is associated with daily work routines – Christmas is a time to clock-off and escape.

In the bleak midwinter, simple pleasures mean the most: take time to think about festive decorations that brighten and enhance your office for your colleagues. Team activities such as cocktail-making masterclasses can bring merriment and camaraderie to your workers, whilst hiring a photo booth with festive props will bring glitz and glamour to your revelries.

Quirkier activities will add sparkle to your gathering: why not host a murder mystery evening? Certain to live long in your colleagues’ memories, a murder mystery troop will arrive at your office, complete with props and scripts, and stage an evening full of suspense and spine-chilling entertainment.

At the heart of every office Christmas party is food; if you have a kitchen, why not treat your colleagues to the decadent services of a private chef, or hire a street food vendor? Poptop has options to suit all appetites and budgets, so get browsing! 

What are the most popular Christmas activities?

Christmas team activities are always convivial and lively; the possibilities are endless on Poptop! Your end of the year party doesn’t always have to be about the entertainment: Christmas work activities promote team-building and always bring belly-laughs. How about hosting an exciting casino night with your very own croupier, or employing a marvellous magician to spread some Christmas wonderment and work the crowd?

Hiring a professional mixologist to host a classy cocktail masterclass for your office Christmas party will bring panache and pizzaz; imagine how delighted your colleagues will be to drink their own delectable DIY daiquiris!

When it comes to imaginative work Christmas ideas, why not consider a disco with a twist?  A silent disco, with everyone wearing headphones, dancing the night away to their own private soundtrack, allows your colleagues to boogie away the tensions of work and let their hair down in truly fabulous festive fashion. Music is at  the heart of every festive celebration; if you don’t fancy a disco, browse through Poptop’s huge selection of DJs, live bands or tribute bands.

All budgets are catered for, and whoever you choose is guaranteed to get your colleagues rocking around that Christmas tree!

What are some good Christmas party themes for 2023?

Picking an eco-friendly, sustainable theme and keeping it simple will be important to many this year. On-trend themes for 2023 include: 

  • A naughty but nice cocktail party: invite your colleagues to come in fancy dress as naughty/nice characters!  
  • A Grinchmas party: who doesn’t love the grumpy Grinch? Theme your party with vibrant green decorations and encourage guests to dress in green, or candy-cane colours! 
  • Candy-Cane Wonderland: decorate with a candy-cane theme; think pretty pots of candy-canes scattered around, perhaps with steaming mugs of peppermint hot chocolate and mulled wine too?   
  • Pink Wonderland: when it comes to on-trend colours in 2023, pink is the hot favourite – move away from the traditional Christmas palette for your dress code – your guests will be tickled pink!  
  • Merry Vintage Christmas Party: Christmas is a time for nostalgia. Why not theme your party to a bygone era, such as the 1980s or 1960s, and invite your colleagues to dust off their pop-socks or don some flares? 

Ever thought of getting your team involved when it comes to choosing a theme for your work Christmas party? Once you have chosen together, prepare to soak up those fabulous festive feels!
