Every company holiday party is different, but there is a commonality among the successful holiday office gathering and corporate holiday event: direction. A corporate holiday party theme provides just that, guiding the decisions for almost every corporate holiday party detail. We’ve listed several corporate holiday party themes, along with the holiday party ideas that make these company holiday gatherings festive—and the entertainers that make them memorable (and a frequent topic of conversation around the water cooler!).
Ye Old Christmas
A classic holiday party should embody all the tastes, scents, and décor of a traditional holiday. Think gingerbread, cranberries, ice skates, and all those cozy and old-time holiday associations. The exact décor and entertainers depend on the audience demographic and desired event atmosphere (contact an entertainment pro to choose the right entertainer for the holiday event).
Entertainers: Home for the Holidays show, Carolers, Toy Soldiers, Father Christmas
A tropical holiday theme warms guests up in spite of the cold Midwestern winter. In addition to a warm and welcoming venue, tropical theme details should make the holiday party feel like a day in a tropical paradise. To that end, tropical beverages, cuisine, and décor are a vital part of establishing a holiday party paradise. Contact an entertainment pro that can select the right high-quality corporate holiday party entertainment to complete the formula.
Entertainers: Steel drum band, Mariachi band, Reggae band
With a Winter Wonderland theme, bring the beauty of an ice-cold winter day indoors (without subjecting guests to the freezing Midwestern temperatures). This beautiful corporate holiday party theme can be brought to life with snow-colored décor (and even a hint of shine like the snow of a bright day, if that is your desired atmosphere), strategic lighting, and all the tastes that warm up a cold winter day. For a twist, a Winter Wonderland can be altered to a Blue Christmas holiday party theme with blue décor and beautiful lighting.
Entertainers: Carolers, Home for the Holidays show, Father Christmas, Atmospheric musicians, Bands
Themed parties centered around a favorite holiday movie are a holiday party guest favorite. Use the primary guest demographic to determine the right holiday movie for the event. From there, choose the right entertainment, food, and décor that makes the movie a holiday classic.
Entertainers: Grinch, Scrooge, Celebrity Impersonators, Home for the Holidays show
A Santa-themed event deserves a venue with all the details that guests picture at the North Pole—plus Kris Kringle himself. Pack the corporate holiday menu with festive treats and activities that guests flock to, including a visit by the Santa Claus. If gifts are a part of the corporate holiday program, make sure to have elves on hand that make the delivery a jolly holiday memory.
Entertainers: Father Christmas, Elves, Carolers, Toy Soldiers, Musicians
A holiday ball should be a grand corporate holiday event, complete with the multi-course dinner, décor, and atmosphere completely fitting of a formal reception. Picture an elegant venue with an over-the-top holiday atmosphere. Treat guests to a hearty holiday menu that is fitting of a sophisticated palate, a formal reception with lighting and stylish décor, and the entertainment that ties it all together.
Entertainers: Aerialists, Carolers, Atmospheric musicians, Bands
This corporate holiday party theme celebrates the holidays with all the event details from holidays around the globe. From the moment guests walk in the door, create a holiday party atmosphere that transports guests to another place with international tastes, décor, and performers.
