Fun themes for the work Christmas party


With Christmas just around the corner, party season is coming into full swing. If you’ve been nominated to plan the work party this year, it’s vital to get started as soon as you can. This way you have plenty of time to plan and get the night just right. It also maximises turnout as the majority of people get booked up quickly during the festive period. Having a theme for a work Christmas party adds an extra bit of fun to the night and makes it memorable. We’ve put together some of our favourite themes for Christmas parties this year.

Film themes

Film themes are always fun for a party and during the festive season, there are plenty to choose from. Why not try a Grinch themed party? Ask everyone to dress up as their favourite character and decorate with red and green. Create a mini Whoville in your venue and check out Pinterest for a host of ideas on food and drink. If you want more traditional decor go for something like The Polar Express. Here you can utilise train and snow decor and serve hot chocolate with candy canes. Film-themed parties are always a good chance to get imaginative and allow your creative side to show.

Ugly Christmas jumper

If you want a simple theme to go with a classic Christmas party, an ugly jumper night is ideal. Invite guests to wear the gaudiest, over the top jumper they can find and award the best guest a prize.

Crafting night

If you and your colleagues aren’t big into drinking and partying, you can still have a fantastic festive night. Why not have a crafts party, where everyone gathers together to make homemade decorations for home or the office. Wreaths, baubles, cards and table decorations are all enjoyable and not too complicated to make. Use the budget to source all the ingredients you need and it means guests leave with something they can always treasure. Have a Christmas meal or lavish buffet to go with your creative efforts and everyone’s happy. If you aren’t big on crafts, turn it to a food event and have a competition to see who can make the best gingerbread house.

Era-themed evening

Whether you fancy Victorian, 60s or 80s there are so many options for an era-themed party. It gives everyone a chance to dress up and you can arrange some entertainment based on that period. Music is easy, simply choose a themed playlist or put together your own to keep guests dancing all night.

Masquerade Party

This is a super-glamorous night, perfect for the festive season. Ask guests to dress up in black tie and ballgowns, and adorn a mask for the evening. The only rule is that masks must be worn all night and identities kept secret. Pair with a lavish three-course meal and ballroom dancing, this is the ultimate classy Christmas party.
