It is coming to that time of year where the office Christmas party is looming and thinking of ideas for it can be stressful. This can be the case for any time of year and for any event held in the office, it can be hard to think of what to do. Here are some examples of party ideas that are perfect for office events to get everyone in the spirit.


Party and Function Bands


What is a party without music?


Make the event even more special with a band playing live music such as TOTEM Function Band, who are able to provide live music, DJs, event production and everything you need to ensure your party is one to remember. Function bands such as TOTEM have the advantage of being able to offer bespoke packages for each and every occasion and they closely watch the party goers, ensuring they stay on their feet and have a great time.


You can find bands who specialise in a particular period of music history, for example 1970’s British Rock music. You can brief the band to play songs for a particular occasion, like for a Christmas party, you can hire a band who will be flexible with their set list and play everyone’s favourite Christmas songs.


Consider a tribute band if you are wanting something more niche. There are plenty of tribute bands around, from the Spice Girls, Take That or even Slade! Hiring a band to perform live is a guaranteed floor filler and will initially break the ice to get your party in full swing.


Interactive entertainment


Interactive gimmicks are a great additional or theme for any office party. Consider additions such as a photo booth or a video booth, you can get these to come with props for whatever theme you are going for. Perfect for a night to remember, with photographs and videos as the memories to keep forever.


A great option is karaoke, but not just any karaoke – live karaoke! This is where a band plays the music, you sing it and they laugh. Another idea is to hire a ceilidh band. This is way everyone can learn the moves together and then try and remember them to go along with the band’s music.


Go for a theme


For example, if you are planning on having a Christmas party, why not shake it up? Instead of going for a typical ‘winter wonderland’ theme, try something completely different. Why not try a beach theme in December? Something like this may actually be refreshing. Include cocktails that you would typically find on a beach, bright colours and maybe even a Caribbean or Spanish sounding band. Deck the venue out with a beach bear, deck chairs, fake sand and blow up palm trees!


Escape rooms


Why not try something completely different to hiring a venue and kitting it out yourself? Organise a trip out for all your colleagues, we recommend escape rooms. Escape rooms are dotted all over the country and are not only fun, but are great for team building so this would be a perfect plan for a work party.


The way an escape room works is that you and your friends/colleagues are trapped in a room. The idea is that you have an hour to get out of the room, but the only way to do so is by solving a variety of different cryptic puzzles through clues around the room.
