Christmas Party Ideas!

It’s not too late to plan your 2018 Staff Christmas Party… We love celebrating the festive season here at The Function – and there are so many ways that we can help you make this year’s Christmas Party the best one yet for your staff, colleagues, clients and their families!

We’re counting down our top 10 Christmas party ideas!
You can check out our awesome Christmas Party Packages and available dates by clicking here.

 

10. Kris Kringle

First of all, let’s start with a simple one… Rather than providing your staff and clients with the same ol’ same ol’ Christmas presents, get them involved in the gift-giving, too. Keep everyone happy by setting a $10 limit and see how creative they can get.

Add to the mystery by drawing gift recipients on the night. Lay out all the gifts on a table, draw a name from a hat and have them select a present completely at random. Above all, this is sure to create some laughs!

9. Signature Cocktail

Hosting your Christmas party at an Adelaide function room will help to get people excited by being out of the office and all dressed up. And all the best Adelaide venues for hire include a cocktail bar! (Including The Function in Glenelg!)

Therefore ask your function venue to help you come up with a custom cocktail creation and name – theming it with your company name, brand or products will just add to the fun!

8. Wine Tasting

Add a touch of sophistication to your corporate event by inviting a winery to showcase their range to your staff and clients! There are so many incredible South Australian vineyards that offer to come out to you for a wine tasting. Now, who doesn’t love a wine tasting? We’re sure everyone at your office Christmas party will love it!

7. Degustation – or Beergustation!

Planning a sit-down dinner? Ask your Adelaide function venue to plan a degustation for your Christmas staff party! Pair delicious food with complementing wines and make the dinner a truly memorable experience.

And if wine isn’t quite your staff’s thing, a beergustation will be just as well-received! That’s planning a menu for your corporate sit-down dinner where the food comes with an accompanying beer. Cheers!

6. Photo Booth

Have you ever been to a party with a photo booth for the guests? With this entertaining Christmas party idea, your staff and clients will be effortlessly drawn to capture the day or night! Most photo booths come with props and accessories to dress-up and instantly print off the photos that will be loved (and laughed at) for all the Christmases that will follow!

5. Dress-Up or Themed Christmas Party

We all love having a good laugh with – and at – our work mates. That’s why having a dress-up or themed Christmas event can create a lot of entertainment! Most noteworthy, the terrible sweater,movie characters and white Christmas are a few of the festive favourites – and if you’re hosting it here at The Function, there’s always the beach party theme!

4. Guest Performance

Hosting your Christmas party at an Adelaide function room will help to get people excited by being out of the office and all dressed up. And all the best Adelaide venues for hire include a cocktail bar! (Including The Function in Glenelg!)

So, ask your function venue to help you come up with a custom cocktail creation and name – theming it with your company name, brand or products will just add to the fun!

3. Competitive Edge

Why don’t we make things more interesting? The festive spirit will be well and truly alight for your team’s Christmas party by, well, pitting them against one-another! Giving them a competition to embrace will make your staff enthusiastic and you, as the host, will love the smiles it can put on their faces.

Try a quiz, trivia, a game, staff bingo or a scavenger hunt – not just for the prize, but for bragging rights amongst colleagues!

2. Team Building Activities and Games

As funny as it may be to watch, pitting staff against one-another in a competition may not be your thing. But that’s OK – because a team building activity can be just as effective! Like our previous Christmas party idea, you can choose to create a game or scavenger hunt, getting everyone involved and improving their communication and comradery.

For that reason many Adelaide event venues can offer packaged group activities for team building – including The Function in Glenelg! Our Adelaide Christmas party venue is located on Level 3 of The Beachouse, meaning we can send you downstairs for fun at our attractions and games – followed by a private party in the function room after that.

1. Family Fun Day

We’ve thrown out the cocktail, wine and beer ideas – but these simply aren’t for everyone! If your staff are mostly parents, getting them out of the house for a night out is not always the easiest thing. Because of these reasons, a family fun day might be the best choice for your workplace! Ask staff to bring along with partner and little ones, where everyone can enjoy your work Christmas party.

The Function can cater to family fun day Christmas parties! This family-friendly Christmas event idea can be organised by our sister venue, The Beachouse – with packages, lock-ins and private events available for bookings. These Christmas parties are perfect for staff and clients with young children as we have something fun for everyone!
