How to celebrate an office staff party in style

Everyone loves a chance to celebrate, and when it comes to a staff party, the celebrations (whatever time of year) often make all that hard work worthwhile. Whether it’s your yearly Christmas party or summer party, a special company anniversary, or just a party to celebrate that new client, you’ll undoubtedly want to celebrate in style.

You want to go about planning something that you and your colleagues will enjoy and talk about for a long time, don’t you? That may sound daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. Let’s work through this:

So, first things first, what’s the occasion?

There are a few parties that the HR team or the events team will be thinking about throughout the year. Any excuse for a party, right? 

·   Christmas party

·   Summer party

·   Work anniversary

·   End-of-quarter

·   New deal party

Next up, what kind of event are you planning?

If you’re organising a staff party in London, you’re actually spoilt for choice when it comes to work party ideas. The venue you choose will have an impact on this, but if you’re not sure what kind of venue to go for yet, here are some office party ideas:

·         Drinks reception

·         Pub quiz

·         Activity bars (who doesn’t love a bit of competition)

·         Away days outside of London

·         Private dining or sit-down dinner

All these party ideas would work for any occasion, it depends more on the number of guests and the type of venue you book, as we said before.

If you’ve got a larger company but separate teams, the competitive element of activity bars or pub quizzes is a great idea. They are a great way to kick off a night of celebrations, as well as an awesome team-bonding experience.

For those looking for something more corporate and formal, a drinks reception in a grand or unique venue in London is one way to impress your guests. Depending on numbers, you can go for something traditional or something a little more quirky depending on the theme you’re going for.

Unusual work Christmas party ideas

Christmas parties tend to be the biggest events of the year for most companies. Year on year, it’s something that everyone looks forward to. It’s one way to celebrate the year that’s gone, and let your hair down before the new year kicks in.

Because Christmas parties are (or should always be, in our humble opinion) yearly, your challenge is topping the previous party. That means coming up with quirky Christmas party ideas and cool Christmas party venues – things which are, luckily, our speciality.
