Finding a theme for your office Christmas party that everyone will want to take part in can be a big challenge. While some workplaces choose to keep it simple with an Ugly Christmas Sweater or Wacky Hat theme, going all-out with a themed party is a great way to get everyone in the spirit of fun and it means your small-talk for the night is sorted.
Make sure your dress code is clear so your party attendees know how crazy they can get with their costumes and they’ve got time to find something memorable. If possible, it’s great to find a venue to complement the theme, but if you can’t, we’ve got plenty of party decorations so you can make the venue match your costumes instead. Here are the top trending themes for office parties this year.
Under the Sea
Christmas down under means sun, sand and the sea. A fun way to get your employees in the mood to relax, this theme provides plenty of options for costumes and your partygoers can get as creative as they like.
Arriba! Have a hot, hot, hot holiday hoedown with this spicy theme. Everyone loves Mexican food so the catering’s a breeze. All it takes is a sombrero and a salt-rimmed margarita to get the party going.
Make your staff feel like stars with this glamourous party theme. Decorate with chic shades of silver, gold and black and roll out the red carpet to show your appreciation for the hard work your employees have done during the year.
Nothing says summer holidays like palm trees, so this theme is perfect for a casual end of year celebration. Make the most of daylight savings by kicking back with your coworkers and imagining the sand between your toes – easy enough with our scene-setters that can turn even the blandest of boardrooms into the white sands of Waikiki.
Frankie says Relax! For the workplace that’s a little more out-there, choose life and choose the tight and bright costumes of the 1980s. With great music, outfits and cultural icons, there’s something for everyone whether they were around to enjoy the 80s the first time or not.
If the water cooler is abuzz with gossip about Episode VII: The Force Awakens then your office may just be geeky enough to party among the stars of the Galactic Empire. The Star Wars franchise has several galaxies full of characters to dress up as, spanning animated series, video games and of course the many prequels, sequels and made-for-tv movies. Shout your guests to a screening of the new movie (coming 17 December) then enjoy a meal with our themed partyware.
